Recovery - a little better

Well - I'm feeling a little better everyday. I think it helps that the weather is so nice - over 70 in Buffalo and sunny - so I spent about 15 minutes walking and sniffing around in the sunshine. I am exhausted now and will probably sleep the rest of the day. My appetite is back, and I spent some time this morning chewing on a marrow bone, which gave me a little relief from being bored. I can't go up the stairs yet, even though I want to, but I'll probably try soon.

 

Home from surgery!

Well - I came home today. I look pretty weird - my backside is shaved, I'm wearing a tape bandage around my belly to hold the pain patches in place, and my back leg is shaved and stitched up. No walking off leash for me (except in the house) through the end of July, so I won't be spending much time in the country this summer. I am a bit goofy from the medication, but happy to be home. My sister Sophie won't leave me alone, so Mom put gates up to separate us. Sophie can't stand it, but I need my rest and expect I'll just be laying around for awhile.

 

Surgery today

I woke up this morning and - no breakfast - so I knew that something was up. Mom put the leash on me and we went for a ride. I always like to go for a ride, but when we got to the end of the ride I was at the Vet's office. Mom left me there and I wasn't too happy about it. I heard some talk and I think I am having surgery for a torn CCL - the traditional 'extracapsular stabilization' surgery. Mom is concerned about what to expect and do during recovery - but she has gotten some great advice from the Dogster Forums! I will let everyone know how the surgery went after I get home tomorrow. The surgeon is sure I am going to do just fine, but Mom is pretty worried, I can tell. Keep me in your thoughts today.
