We took her to the vet on Monday, and the vet gave her all the shots she needed and gave the ok to spay. And she is not pregnant again, but has not gone into heat. Weird? What can I expect, I have never had a female cat spayed before. I know she ca't eat or drink nuttin' for 12hours before surgery. But what will she be like after? Thanks for the replys!
Oh an shes getting fixed this Friday so we can watch her for the weekend.

She will be tired and a little sore. I usually leave the cat carrier open in a quiet corner and let them come out whenever they feel ready and they can go back in if they want to hide. She probably won't want to eat anything the first day. You can give her some food but don't be concerned if she's not interested. She will eat when she's ready. Just make sure she doesn't lick at the stitches and the other animals don't bother her and she will get back to normal when she is ready. And make sure that the litterbox and water are easy to get to. I noticed that Bailey wanted to jump on things and play right away but then she would feel a pain and run back into the cat carrier to hide. But all 3 of mine were pretty normal by the second day after the surgery. Some vets make them stay overnight but mine all went home the day of the surgery. Mine came home with shaved bellies and tiny incisions that were only about 1/4 inch long. Hopefully your vet will give you instructions about what to do and when to feed her too. They should, but sometimes they just send them home and let you figure it out for yourself.
It is really hard when the other one is younger. I waited to have Allie done until Bailey was old enough to go at the same time so they would both be recovering together. They are only 2 months apart in age so it wasn't a big deal though. Cali will know that she needs to rest so it's Stewie you will have to watch. If you can't separate them, just try to keep him busy with toys and try to give her a break. The stitches are inside so it's not that easy to cause a problem unless she really strains herself. It's more her licking at them that you need to worry about. But mine have never had a litter prior to being spayed so you should ask the vet if there is anything special you need to watch out for. Good luck with Cali!
