my babys poorly in all it glory

Well we had a pretty stress free morning at the vets today, the bandage was taken off and we can now see guines’ op site in all its glory. The biggest task in hand is now stopping my little monster from chewing at his stitches, possibly the collar of shame may need to come out.

Its really good that my hubby and i have both been able to take time off from work to be with him every minute of the day, and have arranged so that our shifts cross over so that at least one of us will be at home with him for at least the next 2 weeks. Hopefully this should mean hardly any use for the fore mentioned collar of shame.

My baby boy is still having lots of trouble sitting or lying on his amp site, he spends hours circling and pacing trying desperately to sit were his leg once was, now i have suffered with a bad back terribly in the past and can only compare it with the need to lie in the only place it is impossible to lie because your mind tells you, you need to lie there. I am trying my very best to encourage him to lie down where ever he can so i can rub his belly and he can get at east 20 minutes rest.

We are spending lots and lots of quality snuggle time together and we have had a great day in general today, fingers crossed things will be another day forward in the right direction tomorrow.

    Glad you had a great day! No chewing, Guiness, no chewing! You’ve been forewarned by your mom about the cone of shame.

    And that is a glorious op site. It’s very colourful and I’m sure equally sore.

    Quiet snuggle time and belly rubbing is just what your baby boy needs right now.

    Fingers and paws crossed here too for a good day tomorrow too!

    Hopefully soon he will figure out a good way to lie down comfortably. Morgan too had trouble with this at first, now she just pauses for a few seconds to figure it out before she lays down.
    We haven’t had to use the cone of shame too much with Morgan. Our bigger problem now is with her trying to scratch at he amp site with her rear leg on that side.
    Best wishes for a good day tomorrow for you and Guiness! That is all we can do at this point, is take this 1 day at a time and hope and pray for the best!
