I took the kitty back to the vet's this evening for a check up and to remove the IV catheter. She is on the mend, though it is going to take a while. Getting rid of the IV has made it much easier for her to lie down, so we hope she'll rest more and be less stressed . She has a little nest behind the couch made from her favorite blanket and is snoozing. We figure she used up 2.6 lives on this last adventure.
