Home from surgery (with picture of wound)
The surgery went well and we picked up Howie today. He seemed in good spirits although a little out of it. We went home gave him some water and he slept for a long time. Then I took him down to use the restroom, I didn’t know what to expect but he hobbled around and was fine. In face he tried to get up and hobble around on three legs but we were instructed to keep him in a confined area.
Here is a picture of the wound (sorry if it is a bit graphic). It is fairly large, but unlike most cases the surgeon was able to sew in the sutures under the skin with no staples which was nice. Howie is wearing a cone for now but seems to just lay around and sleep.
