Jie jie(Sharon) was there to accompany her..
around 6pm++ her operation starts...
Amber was given a blood test and urine test as well..
also, her ears was check to see how was her condition on her ear infection too..
Jie jie(Sharon) was very worried that she cried and stop, stop and cried for the few hours..
(Jie jie was very worried partly the reason of Amber's age, partly the reason that she remembered a few months ago, the incident of a 9yr old JRT who died on the sterilization operation too..)
Finally after 7 hours of waiting, the operation is done... jie jie(Sharon) was able to go visit her and to know the condition with the doctor..
(Amber at the "patient bed" in The Joyous Vet)
Amber was still kinda blur after the operation,she can hears the humans talking but was weak and sleepy still...
According to the doc, her urine test and blood test shows that she's was in perfect health, all her organs was healthy and strong except that her Ph is slightly lower then average but that's fine...
During the operation, they also said that her urine parameters was a little bigger than the usual but it's not much a concern..
As for her ears, it's a mild ear infections, with just some medication, it'll recover soon... the cause of ear infection could be caused by not properly dried off when after bath..
after the consultation with the doctor and visiting Amber, jie jie(Sharon) and the rest of the human family went off to let Amber rest a little more before they pick her home...
Jie jies(Sharon & Betty) went and pick Amber at 9++pm.. and also to collect her medication too..
(Amber arrived home in her carrier still pretty tired and blur at 9++pm)
(Amber being placed in her own bed to rest for the 1st night after her operation)
OS from Dawn and Snowy: Speedy recovery! Amber..
OS from Jie jie(Sharon): i know you can do it, brave girl!!! Bravery Amber!

ONE minute Mon Mon was sitting quietly by a park bench, the next it was in a frenzy at the sight of a five-year-old boy playing nearby.
The two-year-old mongrel broke free from its owner's grip, pouncing on and biting the French boy before moving on to attack two other children at Tavistock Park in Serangoon Gardens on Jan 27 this year.
On Thursday, Terri Chua, 46, pleaded guilty to three charges of being the owner of a dog which injured children that afternoon.
The court heard that even though Chua was holding onto the leash, Mon Mon was able to break loose and attack the five-year-old.
The boy had been playing on his own while his mother sat on another bench in the park.
Chua chased his dog away from the screaming boy but it then ran towards two other children playing in the park.
