My Tripod Lima Bean (diamond)


Recommended Posts

Tomorrow is 2 weeks post op.

 

She ended her pain meds this morning, so no more unless she indicates she's in pain.

 

Last night she had most of her staples out. Most because unfortunately, she has an area that didn't heal. The remaining staples are on the healed part but we don't want the newly healed good skin to separate because of the dead tissue just above it.

The dead part is about 1/2 inch to an inch long. We have to have it heal on it's own now, no stitches. She'll remain on antibiotics until it does.

The dead stuff is supposed to sluff off and eventually the good stuff will close over.

 

My local vets are in contact with OSU to see if we should move forward with chemo on saturday. This protocal inhibits the bone marrow. So we may not want to do that while we have an open sore.

 

But maybe that will be okay, then we can celebrate her BD on Saturday instead of being sick from chemo.

 

She's doing well being a tripaw. She does her dogdoor and her ramp. She sometimes comes up stairs instead of using her ramp. Just as long as she doesn't go DOWN the stairs. So far she's headed straight for her ramp when she goes outside.

 

She still gets tired, but less and less as time goes on. I'm hoping that in the not too distant future she'll be able to handle our walks around the field.

 

But she seems bright eyed and her ears are at full sail when I talk to her.

 

I think (hope) I did right by her.

She looked really good when I saw her on Monday. She even surprised her Mom by coming to the front door to meet me.

 

Then she shocked her Mom by coming out to the back yard down her ramp. She is full of spunk so I'm sure she will continue to do well.

 

 

And for any of the naysayers out there that think I done wrong by doing this to a 12 yr old.....how old did she look to you?

She doesn't look much older than my Fiona did at 9 yrs.

:yay Glad to hear she's doing so well! Sounds like a BIG birthday celebration is in order.

 

You did what you thought was best for your dog, who can fault that?!

Sounds like she's making great progress. It took a while for our tripods to build up stamina after amputation. Hopping takes a lot more energy than walking.

So glad she is doing well, despite the lack of healing on that section of the incision (boy can I relate!). Holding off on the Chemo sounds like a good move until she is healed up, but hopefully that will be quick :-)

 

Lots of positive thoughts flowing your way from my family,
