The cystotomy was cancelled after Rajah was prepped and given anesthesia. It was determined her red blood count was low. And I was to pick her up at 2:30 pm that day. Again it is stated that a pre-surgical exam / screen was ordered. There is no mention of a life threatening condition on her discharge instructions. Bringing her back in one week for more blood work did not indicate she was seriously ill.
