Our Journey

Piper’s Home!!!!

Piper’s been home about an hour now.  I don’t know who was happiest to see each other…us or him 🙂   He seems to be doing pretty well!  He has eaten some, drank some water and gone potty outside successfully!  He also seems to be navigating our wood floors pretty well too.  Now that the initial excitement has worn off, he seems either very tired or a little down.  He laid down in his favorite spot for a bit (under the coffee table) but is currently laying in my lap <3

His incision looks pretty good to me (as far as incisions go) and seeing it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it might be.  Even my daughter did well!  She just has TONS of questions.

He does look slimmer to me…like he’s lost some weight. I’m hoping thats a combo of being in the cone so long and the surgery and we’ll fatten him back up a bit very soon.

He isn’t on anything for pain.  Our vet said he doesn’t medicate for pain when they come home because alot of dogs tend to overdo it if their pain level is dulled.  I was worried about that but he really doesn’t seem to need it.  He’s resting really well right now.  I’m hoping since surgery was on Monday, he’ll be fine without any medication.   Im actually having to make sure he doesn’t jump or anything because he’s trying to 😉

Hoping we have a smooth night tonight…so far so good!  I can’t wait til he’s all healed up, stitches out and cone off!

Wish us luck tonight!

Resting in his favorite spot <3

Kisses for Piper <3

She missed him so 🙂
