My ferret Kaeli had her surgery on Friday (Dec. 14)!

I held on auction on BoardGameGeek to help raise money for her surgery! Here's a GeekList for me to give you all an update on her progress!

I found out in November that my sweet little baby girl had Adrenal Disease.

Knowing Christmas was coming up and that money was tight I looked for other ways to save money for her surgery.

I sold my laptop, a few other knick knacks and then realized I had board games I could sell. That`s where BGG came in. I created a GeekList Auction to help her out. The response was AMAZING! Kaeli and I really appreciate all the help we found from BGG.

I finally raised enough money in the beginning of December. I called and scheduled the surgery. My vet wanted to be present even though another vet would be doing the procedure. Dec 14th was the only day they were both in surgery together until after Christmas. Nothing would be better than having a healthy ferret for Christmas so the surgery was scheduled.

Then to all the worry...

The vet had advised the tumour was in her right adrenal gland, making surgery more difficult. If the vet thought the procedure was too difficult they would open her up and not perform it. What would happen? Safe to say my anxiety levels were high.

I had to work Dec 14th and could not get out of work. So we had to drop Kaeli off the night before. Her brother missed her a lot and got lots of comfort. Kaeli was in the hands of professionals. But I still had my worries.

The day of surgery was a long day. At about 4:00 pm I started to get really worried. They had not called. That had to be a bad sign. At 5:00 pm I got the call.

Surgery had gone really well! They were able to remove the tumour! The other gland looked normal!

What more could I ask for?

The vet advised she had to be watched carefully and to make sure she ate. But I was ecstatic! My ferret was okay!

A little groggy, still pretty sleepy we administered her meds.

She began walking around again. She looked to be walking a little easier! What a plus!

She kept using the litter box, something that had gone downhill in the past few weeks. With all the trouble walking, it was harder for her to climb in and out. But she was back to her litter box. Awesome!

So far, so good!

Lots of cuddles. Still lots of meds. We are still doing great!

She's still very cuddly, and isn't as active, but she's still on medication.

She seems to still be more alert and gets to spend some time with her brother.

Right now, she's cuddling under the blanket next to me on the couch.

We both just wanted to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU to everyone on BGG for their support either big or small, it's all appreciated!
