Bodie Suffered A Slight Setback

Recommended Posts

I got a call this afternoon from Bodie's surgeon. Bodie has started bruising at his wound site. So the surgeon had a blood test done and Bodie's proteins were down, so he received a pint of plasma. The surgeon assured me this was normal in greyhounds - almost all of them bruise on the third day and Dr. Couto is actually studying it to find out why. So while, the surgeon says this is a slight setback, he's fairly sure Bodie will be able to go home on Monday, as long as he stays seepage-free and doesn't bruise any more.


But the good news is that the surgeon also took Bodie out into a large, grassy fenced-in area for a walk without a leash or a sling, and he managed just fine. The surgeon says he is also pain free around the wound site - he doesn't seem to mind it being examined or touched.


So, send out those good thoughts to Ohio so Bodie will stay seepage free and his bruising won't get worse. While I know he is receiving the finest of care, I still want him to be able to come home on Monday so we can love and spoil him!

Good thoughts to Bodie from right here in Columbus! Who was the surgeon?


I'm terrible with names, but I believe he said his name was Dr. Hilldreth (sp?)
