Post surgery

November 1, 2010

Alex was a real trooper and was home with me Tuesday night just seven hours after his surgery.  He was heavily drugged for about two days and required intense attention.  Although this was exhausting and stressful, it was extremely rewarding.  Rarely have I had the opportunity to be the more giving one in our relationship.

Thursday morning Alexei growled as his brother peered over the gate at him.  It was the first sighting of his personality in days and an indication that he was back.  A short time later he rose to his feet like a laying horse off the barn floor.  Alex made his way over to look out the window and I knew he was on his way to a full recovery.

We spent the day in Alexei’s favorite spot, on the rear deck.  Alex was in his glory, laying in the sun with his pack.  A little sore from the operation with lots of work ahead, but he was out of pain and enjoying life again…

    Wow, he sounds like he is doing great!! Remember there can be ups and downs during the first two weeks so don’t get discouraged if he has some down times. But he is off to a great start, hopfully he will have an uneventful recovery.

    I remember when I got to soak up the sun after my surgery (which was in November) and it felt so good to get outside again.

    Pretty soon you’ll be running amok with your pack, it won’t be long now.
