Sick burmese python?

I've had snakes for a long time and I know that one of the first things I will be told is to take my snake to the vet. I have taken her and will be taking her again, but until then I'm hoping someone might have some helpful information? I've never had any problems with her. She is an albino burmese python about 9 years old. Any time she has been sick in the past, she stops eating. Right now she has still been eating as well as hungry. About 2 weeks ago, she threw up for the first time in the 9 years I've owned her. It was mostly fur and clear liquid and didn't smell very bad (and yes, it was puke, I saw her vomit) She has been acting fine, her temperatures are fine, but it freaked me out. I took her in expecting a possible respiratory problem because that's usually the case anytime she is sick (she is very sensitive to any environmental changes) but the vet said that wasn't the case and that she seemed healthy and it was likely a fluke. He is one of the top reptile vets in my state and I really trust him. He said it could potentially be parasites and so she was given antibiotics. Today, about 2 weeks from then, (she ate 2 rabbits Monday and is still acting fine) I came home from work today to notice that she had peed but there were also what looked like small mucus-like chunks? It doesn't look like she threw up but I don't know what this could be. She yawned so I got a good look at the inside of her mouth and she doesn't have any excessive saliva that I can see. I don't hear her breathing and she isn't bubbling. She looks healthy??? But I am so concerned because I don't know where this mucus came from? I don't know if it came from her butt or her mouth. I'm not overly concerned if it came from her butt, just scared that there could be a bigger problem going on.
I didn't know where else to come and look for help so here I am now. Any ideas? Has anyone ever had something like this happen with one of their snakes?
Please don't tell me to take her to the vet. I will already be scheduling another appointment for her first thing tomorrow morning and she will likely get in within a few days.
By the way, her bathroom tendencies seem fine too.
Thank you in advance.

Also, I hope this is posted in the right place. This is my first time using this website and I'm not very good with technology.
