Roma through surgery!

Her foster mom writes:
"Roma is doing well. They continued her IV and have been giving her dexamethasone(steriod) to reduce the swelling and make sure her airway stays open. So far it has been fine. The surgery was two and a half hours repairing her hard and soft palate. Her mouth is full of sutures.
They did not spay her due to the length of surgery. They did not want to keep her under any longer or stress her any further. They allowed her to lick ice cubes today and tomorrow will give her a soupy dog food and see how she does. If all goes well she will come home tomorrow, if not, she will be able to come home on Sat.
She is in ICU under respiratory watch so she is having to stay in a cage but is checked very frequent to insure no breathing problems arise. There is a vet there 24 hours if something should happen. She also still has a IV running to ensure she does not get dehydrated.
He promised to call first thing in the morning to let me know how she is doing and if she will be allowed to come home. Our baby girl is a fighter and has crossed the hardest hurdle. I will keep everyone posted on her progress."
Thanks everyone for your good wishes! Keep 'em coming!
