Well the Dr. visited with my new parents on Monday and said my blood work all came back good, so the surgery day will be set for Wednesday to have my damaged foot and leg removed. My parents wished there was something else that could be done but the Dr. said that I would do well, and that the way she recommended was the best for my long term heath.
So I have another day to rest up and gain my strength, then I will have all the tissue that is torn and broken removed and be able to heal and start to feel like a fun dog again.
My new parents came to visit me every day before and after the surgery, trying to make sure I knew that I was loved and had a good home to go to when all of this was over.
The surgery started in the morning and lasted just about an hour or so, it took a hour for the anesthesia to wear off enough that I could stand up. I wanted out of the crate I was in and wanted to walk around. I had been on 3 legs for almost a week so I did not have trouble getting around without my bad leg, and it was actually easier because I did not have to hold it up.
The Dr. was very surprised, and told my parents that I was a super dog to be up and about so quickly.
My parents did not visit today as the Dr had told them I would probably need the day to get it all together, boy did I surprise her. They were here bright and early on Thursday though and I was very glad to see they had missed me as much as I had missed them. So Friday is my day to go home, just have to finish my IV’s with antibiotics and pain meds then I could go home.
Everyone at my new parents clinic were very loving and attentive, they made me feel so very special.
