Surgery #2 / TPLO Recovery Week 3

Surgery #2 day – Cheoah’s turn for TPLO surgery to repair her damaged CCL. Fortunately, we have Natasha’s tremendous progress as a benchmark as she completes TPLO Recovery Week 3.

no breakfast Tuesday morning

I heard a nasty rumor that I do not get breakfast Tuesday morning.

looking forward

The sacrifices we have to make – but I look forward to being able to run around again (and tackle Typhoon for this).

share the treatment

I can’t believe I am having to share the Hu-dad’s special post-surgery treatment.

Natasha, three weeks post surgery, is continuing to recover very well. She so wants to use her leg again, run, and manage the Herd, but she is half way through the time where she must be supported by the sling during all walks. Her Grumpiness, however, never lets the Hu-dad forget all of the inconvenience this is causing her.

    I hope things went well for Cheoah today! The Princess needs to keep those youngsters in line!

    It’s hard being a good patient, when all you want to do is run and play!

    I don’t envy you managing two recovering patients!

    Best wishes to the both of you!

    Good luck Cheoah. I hope both you and Natasha heal quickly.
