Feeling Better

Well, it has been 2 weeks since I came home from surgery.  Last Monday I had my stitches removed (no fun, I don’t recommend it) and they told me I had to wear a T-shirt for about a week since they had removed the bandage.  How embarrassing.  I finally this weekend I got back to a normal situation.  I not longer have to wear that dreaded plastic cone around my head.  I have resumed my long daily walks, I am back to running in the yard, and I  am back to eating 9 cups of food a day.  I have also regained the weight I lost during that tragic period.

That is the good news.  The bad news is that it is going to take a while for my hair to grow back.  Good grief, for the price they charge for surgery, you would think they would find a way to avoid having to shave the lower half of your body.  That is ridiculous!!  I even have racing stripes (well actually rings) around my front legs where they shaved out areas for the IV fluids.  This is unbecoming a Wolfie!!

    Hey Quinn:

    So happy to read your update! I’m doing okay too. Surgery sucks, does’t it?
    I have a shaved tummy too, and a pretty nice looking scar. Bet your scar is longer than mine! I did not want to eat for a couple of days, but now my food looks pretty good again, but how do I still get the cooked chicken?
    I still have a few more days to be sort of quiet, and then Finn and I can play again.
    We did have a long walk on Sunday, but we were not allowed to “horse around” at all.
    Stay well, and stay away from dish towels!
    Your pal,
