Day 2 Post Op
Rudi slept through the night last night. We all managed to get some sleep and I was surprised but grateful. We got up at 7:30 to give him his dose of meds and take him out for a potty break. He ate breakfast and then we decided to try out the xpen we put in the living room for him. I think he really enjoyed being around us while we watched TV and had our coffee. He was very calm this morning as it appeared the pain meds were steady in his system now. He dozed for quite some time....Brian and Elmo also had a morning nap. It's been a fairly quiet day for Rudi and he seems to be a little more comfortable. I do have to say that his leg is awfully swollen and purplish, red. It's not a pretty sight so I decided to post a happier picture of Rudi sleeping peacefully. I'm sure everyone reading this is thanking me right now :) I'm hoping that over the next few days the swelling and bruising will recede. It's worse than last time but this leg was damaged worse than that first one so I'm keeping that in mind. Each day that goes by is another day under our belt toward healing. Let's see what tomorrow brings.
