Dakota's Transformation

Surgery Day

Today at 7:30am my newly minted husband and I dropped half of my heart off at the Vet. They called around 1 and said that everything went well!

I am nervous to go pick her up. They want to keep her overnight because they say she is resting comfortably and that there is no need to move her quite yet. I hope that’s not a bad sign. Is there anything you all would recommend bringing when I go and get her?

    How are you doing? How is Dakota? I just saw your message. Hope all is well, drop a line when you have some time.

      I am…….I’m ok. Scared, and totally clueless about what I can do to make things easier for her. She seems to be ok, she doesn’t seem to be in too much pain, but she is definitely NOT herself. I am sure that is normal at this point.

    Just saw your post. Glad everything went eell!!
    Actually, most Vets keep the dogs and cats for one night, sometimes more. So that’s a good thing!

    Gonna suggest younhop.over to the FORUMS and start a “thread” . You’ll get a lot of responses in what to expect, how to prepare your home, etc.

    We would love to hear more about your sweet heart sog Dakota!

    Recovery is no picnic for the first week or two….especially the first several nights home. So stay connected!! We’ve all been through it and understand what you are going through! Not easy at first! But once recovery is over, you will be amazed at how well Dakota will do!! 🙂

    I’ll look forward to more updates and hearing more about Dakota. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

    When you go to pick Dakota up, don’t even bother to look at his incision. He’s just so excited to see you and he doesn’t care about any ole’ incision!

    The Vet should send you home with Tramadol, Rimadyl, Gabapentin and an antibiotic. Keeping the pain managed can be a bit tricky.

    We’re here for you!!

    Lots of hugs!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
