14 days post surgery…

November 5, 2010

Alex had all his bandages removed for good and is enjoying the added comfort of only wearing a T-shirt.  Important lesson learned when this Pawrent allowed Alexei to do everything he wanted on day 3 and 4 which included car rides and lots of time outside.  We experienced the most uncomfortable night and I had to use the same drugs he had on the eve of his surgery just to settle him down.  We have paced ourselves since then and things have been really good.

Its’ wonderful to see him out of pain and enjoying all the things that made him happy again.  From the moment he was on his feet all he wanted was to be in the sun out on the deck.  By day four he was looking for the OK to get up on his sofa/love seat.  And by the fifth night he was sleeping upstairs with his pack…

    What a sweet baby. He looks so happy on the sofa. Can’t wait til we are at day 14 out. (We are on day 7. Doing well – but it will be nice when the staples/cone are gone!)

    I’ve just caught up on Alex’s story.

    It’s great to hear about his wonderful recovery! Alex is a definite heartbreaker – just gorgeous. And I love that bright t-shirt on him.

    Well done, Alex!

    Great reading about Alex and seeing that he’s doing so well. We’re 9 days post op (left rear amputation) and doing well. Taking one day at a time and can’t wait for Cody to get back to “normal”. She’s still having trouble at times with strength in her other rear leg. I know it just takes time. Reading about Alex and other pups helps. Thanks for your blog!
