Misty and Timber: We are wondering when Lightning can come play with us outside?
Lightning: I am wondering the same thing, but I am also wondering if this lampshade is going to be a permanent part of my body!
Mom: And I am wondering if this nightmare will ever end. It is going to be at least another 5-6 or more weeks before Lightning gets to even be outside off leash and then only under supervision, Misty and Timber. And at least another 8 days before the lampshade comes off, Lightning. But the good news is that today is the first day we are seeing a decrease in the swelling of his leg. His body is finally starting to absorb the fluids. We had some minor serum seeping last night, but the vet said it is OK, just a sign that he needs to take it very easy. I have also been doing a short video of him daily when he walks so we can see the very slow improvement. It is amazing to see how far he has come since Saturday, first day post-op. I will post them later this week.
