Weíre doing ok considering everthing. We had to go in a few times for restitching but yesterday the vet said it looks pretty healed and not to worry if it happened again. Try as I may, thereís times when I do doze off while sleeping in closet with her. I try not to let my guard down til sheís sleeping well, but she can wake at any time. Weíre on day 8. Stitches come out next Monday. That will be good. |
I took her off all meds, after day 4 instead of day 10. Though she was on few days before surgery too (so maybe 7 days). I didnít like how she was acting, and she seemed fine near the next dose, so I donít think she was in that much pain. Those meds were highly addicting. And I do think she went through withdrawal for a day and a half after she was off. Went from super sedation one minute to wide awake and disoriented the next, then back to deep sleep minutes later. I was worried, but suddenly she just became herself again, recognized me well and responded. And no need for meds cause she even wanted to play. I had to kerp her quiet best I could.
I still do sometimes, and it will get harder the better she feels. I take her back in 3 weeks for xrays to see healing progress. Sheís still has to be confined for 5-7 more weeks.
Weíre getting there. Will be glad when itís over. And hoping she heals well. Keep praying.
How are you feeling? Praying for you too!
Posting a couple pics, one the day after surgery, with all the bruising on her leg. And one from now, 8 days later, same position. I think we made progress. 😁 Stitches kinda on side and you canít see, but originally much more bruised than the leg pic shown. I thought Iíd spare the gory details. Few humps but we are getting there. 😁
