The house was too quite while Zoey was gone so we were beyond happy to get the call that Zoey's surgery had gone well and that we could come pick her up the following day. She is now happily at home recovering. Dogs are so good at dealing with pain, I really can't even imagine how much it must hurt, yet she waddels around and her tail still wags when we talk to her. So far things have been like I expected. She is much more still and quiet, but I'm sure that won't last long. In about two weeks we get to go back to remove the big bandage covering her body and remove stitches. I think she will be so happy to have it off and I'm sure will be almost back to feeling like normal again by then.
Thank you God for giving us more time with her!!
