my big purple bruise

Well today has been a bit of a mixed day for my baby today, this morning he seemed very agitated and uncomfortable as though his stitches were digging in. Every Time he settled he was back on his feet walking round, this wen ton for about 3 hours, the only thing that wold settle him for any point in time was to lay on the floor with him and tickle his belly, so that’s what i did.  My worst fears are always going to be that he has another infection, now his leg is gone i simply don’t know what they would do if the infection came back as he is all out of legs to remove. but its back to the vets in the morning for his dressing changed and a check up so hopefully, fingers crossed all will be well.

Sunday is always guiness’ favorite day of the week, we always go to mums for a wonderful home cooked Sunday dinner, beef veggies and lots of Yorkshire puddings the stuff dreams are made of he he. Not only does mum cook a dinner for us humans but, she also cooks one for the dogs, she has 2 spaniels of her own one a cocker spaniel the other a cavalier king Charles, both i might add on the chunky side. I was quite worried that taking Guiness to my mums might be a little to much for him,especially how he had been all morning, but i took his bed and his chew toys and off we went.

I was pleasantly surprised that guiness pulled me down my mums yard in desperation to go and give his mamma a big love and show of his huge purple bruise, you only have to say to him show me your bruise and he rolls over onto his belly as if he is almost proud of it. He quickly settled down in the living room with my hubby and dad and seemed much more content than he had all day.

He has, i regrettably say eaten his Sunday dinner, i have made a vow that once his stitches are out the diet will begin i will have to learn to be very strict on myself in order to give my baby the best fighting chance of a long and pain free life, so next Sunday will be the very last of his Sunday dinners.

Well that’s pretty much up to date for today, vets in the morning so we might have some more to tell tomorrow, please keep your fingers crossed that all is well i know i will cross everything that i possibly can. 🙂

    Sounds kinda scary today, but also fun for Guinness to go see his grandma. I know you are worried about diet, but every now and then you need to spoil your best friends, you know. Paws crossed for tomorrow, my friends.

    He doesn’t necessarily have to “do away” with the yummy sunday dinners, but rather portion accordingly!!! I know Chloe would be super jealous to know he gets the royal treatment on sundays!

    We hope no more infections and that he will get comfortable laying on his amp site. It is probably more uncomfortable since he did have that infection. Time will pass and his wounds will heal 🙂

    Guiness and family –

    I just read your previous post of how you and Guiness came to be here. You have had quite a time. How stressful the last while has been for you; and what a lot Guiness has been through.

    The post-amputation period has its ups and downs. Sorry that Guiness had a bit of a tough day – but wow, a special Sunday dinner at Grandma’s!

    Sending lots of healing wishes for Guiness and look forward to an update! And some pictures!
