|He doesn't want to move|
|Elvis will you hold me up? I'm hurting|
|Right after dad came home, finally alseep|
He did want to lay out in the sun. It's about 102 degrees today and he likes to lick while in the sun, so I didn't let him stay out to long. So far he has only had to wear the CONE while sleeping (we are kenneling him at night time) ,but I think that will change soon, today he seemed to know when I was not paying attention and started licking his incision. I'm not letting him out of my sight with out it, the vet said he'd have those staples out in seconds, we don't want that. I'm gonna keep the CONE off as long as I can as he won't get the staples out till next Wednesday.
He is still taking some pretty strong medicine every 8 hours. Tomorrow (Thurs) we are gonna cut him back and see if he can handle that.
Beware the picture below is graphic
|I counted 30 staples|
Here are a couple of videos I got of him right after he got home. I thought he'd lay down if he was in a kennel (we have never put him in a kennel). I was wrong, all it did was make me worry he'd fall over and hurt his tummy. He was very wobbly.
I think the other dogs are feeling a little left out, as I've been so focused on Jake, so we'll be back to blogging next week sometime. I'm gonna spend some time to help the others not feel left out, and take care of Jake. It's kinda of a lot of work.
|True love, |
