Mom picked me up from the hospital today and its just her, me and Austin. No vet techs or doctors to be with us. Mom got a list of things to look for (panting, restless, whining and shaking)and if I do any of these things that means I'm in pain and to give me some pain medication. I'm not allowed to run or jump on anything, no stairs, no playing or rough housing. She can take me out for a walk for only 5 mins a day and can increase it to 10 mins after a few days. One of mom's friends bought me a lambskin bed to lay on and it is sooooo soft. I love it. We're supposed to watch my incision (its about 6" right down the front of my neck to chest area. Watch for redness which means its infected. And we're to call them back if it turns red. (They suggested mom take a picture of it every day to compare it from one day to the next.) They gave me some antibiotics I'm supposed to take every night along with my pain medications. Mom bought me another elevated dog dish/holder and the jury is still out on it. I ate supper from it but not to sure if I like it or not. Didn't like the one she bought me this summer and even tho this one is a few inches shorter, not sure I'm going to like it that much better. I'm not ever supposed to wear a collar again, only the harness that mom had gotten me at the request of my accupuncure doctor. They just put a slip leash under my arms and around my torso to help walk me out to mom's car and make sure I didn't jump getting in. Its pretty low to the ground, so I was o.k., but the vet tech was there really to ease mom's stress rather than mine. BOL

All in all I'm doing pretty good. I want to thank everyone for all the POTP sent to me before, during and after the surgery. It really has helped. You guyses are the best.

Thanks everyone! I'm doing good today. Mom did a warm compress on my incision and put some neosporin on it. I ate out of my new elevated bowl with no problem this morning. (mom said I better get used to it cause she's not taking it back.) Altho what I did was take a mouth full of food drop it on the floor and then ate it. Mom said that's defeating the purpose. Oh well...I'm trying. I'm lovin' my new bed I got. Its got like a bumper pad all the way around it and that's where I lay my head, kinda like a pillow. Mom said she woke up 4 times during the night and each time I was in a different position on the bed. So things are coming along nicely. Nice and quiet and relaxing at home. :)
