Chaos’s Fight – Day 11, Day 2 post amp.

  Hi everyone, Chaos came home last night! YAY  Our Dr. was very impressed with the Web Master harness, we found the only store in Nova Scotia that carried them and they only had 1 large(we were very lucky to find one). It was worth the 2 hour drive to get it. We were very happy to have him here in his own bed.  🙂  The night was just about what you would expect it to be after major surgery,  he slept a lot, he cried a bit, but you could tell he was glad to be home.  He did go outside for a  pee last night, he needed a little help but he mostly did it on his own.  Chaos’s Grammy came over this morning and brought him some treats, and if that didn’t make him get right up and walk across the room over to her for just one more of those yummy T-Bones. Thanks Grammy.

  We did not want him to feel isolated so we made him up a second bed in the living room this morning. It lifted his spirits to be around the whole family and so that the other dogs can see him and vice versa.  Montanna and Ben(are other 2 dogs) are so happy to have their big brother home, they slept outside his bedroom last night and when he cried they would cry right along with him.

  Wow it is so amazing to see how fast he is bouncing back,  he has that Chaos sparkle in his eyes that we love to see. He is very alert compared to yesturday, and is walking almost by himself.  He’s not to interested in eating his own food, but let me tell you he has no problem chowing down on a donut.. We are cooking him some steak tonight so that should make him smile. He is drinking lots of water, well as much as Chaos normally would drink, so far he has had about 1.5 liters today. We know there’s still a lot of recovery to go, but we think things are going quite smoothly at the moment.

Chaos goes back to the Dr.’s on Tuesday to have his drain removed so will we give you an update then.. Lots of Love & Happy Thoughts from Chaos’s family.

    We feel your pain! Friday lastweek was 2week anniversary of Panja’s surgery to remove her front leg…we are all coming to terms with it and trying not to second guess and choices we made, that is so hard.
    Keep up the good work! and we hope your baby recovers smoothly!

    Yeaaaay Chaos! We’re so hoppy to hear things are progressing so well. Keep it up OK? And thanks for posting the details here, they will certainly help others out when they find themselves in the same situation.

    Take it easy and keep on healing.

    So good to hear that Chaos is doing so well after his amputation. He looks adorable in his picture!

    My Jake (10yr old golden retriever) was also diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his right front leg and is 10 days post amputation today! I really believe that him being home, surrounded and spoiled by his ‘mommy’ and ‘daddy’ and his younger ‘brother’ (Wolfie) is helping him get through his recovery quicker.

    Keep posting updates on Chaos… and more pictures too!!! Sending good thoughts your way!!
