WARNING!!!! Wound Pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!
Poor Cabel, the Franken-dog is back from the hospital, a little loopy, but he drank a ton of water and ate a pound of meat and demolished a Chicken Chew, all good signs.
I wasn't prepared for either what he was going to look like, or how I was going to feel about it. I did cry, but I was not sick. Close thing. I hadn't thought about the entire leg being shaved, and I had expected a nice neat little bandage.
Mostly he is sleeping, all the way home, and now at home, he wants to follow me when ever I leave the room, so I think we will go camp in front of the TV. We stopped by our vets for a Cone-head for him, and he is going to have to wear it, as he is already trying to lick the wound.
He got much scritches and sympathy at the vets and he was a Star, all the vets came to look at him, and they want to do an X-ray when he gets his stitches out in two weeks, so they can see all the pins. Goofy Vets. I'll take a picture as I know about half of you are thinking "COOL! We want to see pins!" He needs to be iced a few times a day, no off-leash outside walking, no stairs, and he has three bottles of medicine to take four times a day.
It's all rather a bit overwhelming. I am not at ALL good with things like this, but, sometimes you have to just DO it, and deal with the situation. I didn't think I could IV Pod the Cat either, but I did. I feel worse for him than me, I suspect he is hurting. We'll curl up on my new floor bed, and spend a quiet evening.
Unless UPS comes back! Franken-dog let me KNOW a little thing like this wasn't going to stop him!!!!!!
Wish me luck! I'm going to, I suspect, need it...
Love and Dogs,
