He started to whine again around 3 PM. I thought he might want to go out so he got up and made his way out. Either he's constipated now or it just hurt to get in position cause 2 tiny marbles came out and that was it. I saw him actually toe touch a few times once he was in the grass. The surgeon told me he might try.
I don't like the looks of his incision. It's getting very swollen and looks red. I've been applying ice but in order to get it where it's most swollen, I think I froze his little thingy. He must be so disgusted with this whole situation. I can't remember if the other leg looked like this. Lord knows he's got enough antibiotics in him to cure a dinosaur so I hope it's just red cause it was cut.
I've been putting some meat in his kongs to keep him occupied. I'm probably going to have a fat dog when this is over. And that surely won't help the leg any. If anyone can think of something that might make it easier for him to have a BM, please let me know. I'm so tired I can't seem to think.
Thanks
:)



I think he's finally coming back to normal. Thank God and thank you all who are praying for him.
He ate his breakfast this morning. My son tried to carry him outside again and he had an absolute fit. He's so darn independent!!! If he could talk, I know what words would have come out of his mouth!! He got up and once upright, hopped through the house and outside to pee and back. It wore him out so he went back to his mattress and took a nap. I went through the house last night picking up every rug I had and made a path with those no-slip things underneath. What lifesavers they are and so worth the cost!!!
I gave him his pills in tuna this morning and he must have been starving cause he didn't spit them out. He's a master at getting the surrounding food off and tossing the pills across the room.
The moaning has stopped - another "thank God." I hate when he cries like that. I feel so helpless.
I have to feel bad for poor Choco. He's going through his own crisis, his mother not being here. Missing the only home he knew. And now, me keeping him at a distance. I hope he figures it all out. He's such a sweet boy. If the situation were reversed, I'd really have my hands full. I doubt Buddy would listen the way Choco does.
So while it's quiet here, I'm going to take a nap!!!
:)

Thank goodness the moaning stopped. I do not think I would handle that well either, Pam.
Go enjoy your nap, you certainly deserve one.

I'm really glad he's feeling better. From the sounds of it, it won't be long and you won't be able to keep him down anymore.

((((hugs)))) Pam, rest while you can, you more than deserve it!

Buddy, you be a good boy now and do what Mom tells you. The better you behave now, the sooner you can get all better and be back to being a brat! ;) (just kidding)
