Eiren called the vet this morning to see if we could go down and visit him and the tech said that he was on the discharge list for today and we could come get him!! Eiren had the biggest smile after that, I on the other hand was starting to get nervous! Needless to say we were there as soon as we could be waiting impatiently to see him.
The tech said that he is really not to be active at all for the first two weeks, which she said she didnt think was going to be a problem. She said he is one of the most lazy dogs shes ever seen. I guess he layed down outside this morning and just peed laying down (What a ham, but man he is a little stinky!)
His leg isn't too bad. The Tech said that its minimal swelling right now, but that might change and that his brusing is darker than they like so we have to keep an eye on that one. Other than that he is putting weight on it so they said hes doing good.
Eiren and I got him in the car, with eiren basically lifting his back up with a belly sling because we were so scared cuz he had to jump in the car then on the seat in the back. When we got home eiren carried the back half in the house as well. He is doing okay, weve got him secluded to the porch which is about a 8X10 room that is the only room thats carpeted and it gets nice and cool at night seeing as the windows are really lousy windows! Eiren even moved her TV onto the porch so that we can be in there with him as often as possible and then hes got some entertainment when no ones home!
He is starting to get a little fussy wanting to be in the house but its a no go because this way he is only walking around in the room when he feels necessary or hes doing a butt drag, where he kind of drags around the room?? (Such a BUM!)
The tech told us we didnt have to use the E-collar when we were with him, but hes already tested that water and pretty much needs it on all the time. hes a bitter and chewer!
Other than that hopefully we can get him out to pee at some point and then maybe he'll sleep, he hasn't yet since hes been home and that was around noon. Thanks again for all the prayers! We'll definalty take some pictures tonight or tomorrow and post
