Wow. I don’t know if my little bear understands this time that this surgery is good for him or what, but this recovery has been leaps and bounds better. So far at least, I’m hoping it stays this way.
Yesterday I took Bacio got his stitches out. I had to physically remove him from the back seat of my car… It was the only time I had a slight fear that he may snap at me. I got him inside and again, when it was our turn to walk to the back, he wouldn’t move. I had to carry the giant baby to the treatment room. After they took his stitches out, the vet tech said to me, “I hope I never have to see you again!” Me and him both.
As far as his recovery goes, he’s been up and moving around great. We walk about half a mile a day already! He’s also been super cuddly. In fact, I’ve had to write half this post with one hand cause he keeping begging for me to pet him or laying on my arm.
He’s also been very cuddly with Yuki too, the two of them have been laying right next to each other. Surprisingly he’s the one that has been antagonizing Yuki to play and not the other way around so much. He’s not even on any pain medications anymore. I have some spare meds in he for whatever reason has a bad day, but I am holding off on keeping him on anything because he’s been doing so well.
We haven’t tried any stairs yet, so I am still crashing at my dad’s house for now. I’m really nervous about the stairs because that is when his recovery took a turn for the worst last time. I am going to give him all the time he needs to get some strength. However, he seems to be up and ready to tackle the world already! This second time around as been so much easier so far, I hope it says this way!
