The operation went well. She said he had a really bad tear. It would not have healed, but scarred over and arthritis would set in. He'd never use that leg and the other rear leg, taking all the weight, would eventually give out too.
Here he is, a shaved left front leg where the IV went in. A shaved patch on his left shoulder where a pain patch has been STAPLED to him. Ouch. They said that med is stronger than morphine. His whole left hind quarter and leg is shaved, and she said she stapled the incision shut. I am so glad he hadn't been recently "groomed" ... all that shaving would have ruined his "do."
As long as he doesn't bite at anything, I can keep the "neck cone" off him.
He hasn't bitten a thing, not even food. He is so stoned, he has barely moved. I am thinking of going in for a ruptured cruciate ligament surgery, just for the drugs!
I had to go to work today, the boss is on vacation, so I can't take a day off.
So here is Quinn, at work, stoned and wondering "what did you do to me?"
I brought his meds, food, and water ... but he just turns his head to it all. Maybe he's afraid if he takes anything, it will kill his buzz.
