Mojo Update... and some other stuff- Part 2

Mojo has been doing well since her surgery, however she has been refusing to drink any water. I've been syringe feeding her because that's the only way she would get any liquid. I also noticed that when she went outside to potty, she was squatting multiple times... which is why I took her in in the first place. Oy! So I called the vet and took her back in today for a follow-up urinalysis. Good news! Everything looks perfect! The only thing is that her urine wasn't very concentrated. Ha! So it's almost like she's getting too much water. Who would have thought?! They put her on canned food so that has more water than her normal dry food. So, needless to say, they don't want me feeding her any more water. They said to keep her collar off most of the time and see if she will just eat and drink like normal. They didn't really answer any questions about her squatting a lot, but they seemed satisfied with the fact that her urinalysis was normal. So for now, things are good! PLUS, there was a mix-up and she has dissolvable stitches (instead of removable ones) so I don't have to take her back in to get anything removed. SCORE! Thanks again for your love and prayers!

On a totally different topic, my sister-in-law had her baby!!! She had a loooong and tough labor, and after 2.5 hours of pushing she ended up having a c-section. Things happened very similarly to how things happened with Jax (except her C went smoothly, and mine didn't). Apparently Jax's cousin wants to be just like him already. Ha!
