Thanks for all the vibes and well wishes for the DG - today's notice from Catherine the vet student is that he is continuing to do well, had his pain meds reduced and is going out every 4 hours or so for a piddle and once he gets going he is putting weight on his bad leg
Wound site still looking clean and stitches holding so keeping everything crossed
DL - Sharkey is missing his brother, more at night oddly enough and has slept on the bed for the last 3 nights which is very atypical.........and hot!!
The NV? Well in true NV fashion I'm not even sure he's noticed but everything is his world is still EXCITING including having a piddle and coming in from the garden afterwards so he's perfectly happy
(((((((((WIN)))))))))))) and apologies for the self absorption this week
With his reconstructive surgery did he go nose job or added pecs?
Sadly the opposite - they've used some of his pecs to mend the leg! And all my houndie boys are proud of their long noses.........
I've asked if it's possible to get a photo of the wound site - the request is being relayed by my personal case vet student to the big cheese.......I suspect they'll say no for fear of either terrifying me or leaving themselves open to criticism of their work......but I prefer to see these things and I can't go and visit as it would excite him and damage the wound
And a very belated welcome to Monty on the topic of pooches too - he looks lovely and seems to be settling in very nicely.........not into Rossie's shoes of course but perhaps into a nice comfy pair next to hers
Noggy - I too loved the ring idea - very personal which is what makes it so special
The DG had surgery yesterday afternoon (can't remember if I said or not!) which removed the lump and involved some reconstructive work too
He's passed a reasonable night and currently the stitches are holding and the wounds look clean.........however he declined to go out for a piddle this morning apparently preferring to go back to bed......... They think he's reasonably comfortable however so he is at least heading in the right direction
Will you go visiting? If so what do you take instead of grapes?
I won't visit
Firstly it's the best part of a 5 hour round trip would you believe (Potters Bar in Herts!)
Secondly I think it would upset the DG more to see me and then have me walk away from him (and me too if I'm honest)
They seem to be a really good team there and keep me updated by phone at each stage so I have to accept that he's in the best place possible for him and just hope I get him back again and nothing goes wrong.........
