|Doesn't she look pathetic.....|
But then day 4 rolled around and I got a small glimpse of my "puppy" again. She was perkier, her ears were standing up, and her energy level had increased. I didn't have to fight her to do her therapy, she took her meds like a champ and her overall demeanor had improved greatly.
Day 5 was her first day at daycare and they said she did fantastic. I don't know what I would do without those wonderful ladies...they sent home a chart with me last night showing me when she ate, took her meds, did therapy, got a cold compress, went potty, drank water, etc. Anything and everything that they thought I would like to know, they wrote down for me.
Today is Day 6 and she was extremely tired looking this morning. Although, we did have a good therapy session before I dropped her off at daycare.
I hope and pray that every day we start to see improvement.
For those of you with a weak stomach...Look away now!!
Here is a picture of Lainey's incision on Day 1
As of today, the swelling has gone down substantially, the bruising is almost gone and the incision site looks like it is healing nicely. The staples come out next Monday and I will post another picture so you can see the improvement.
