Bodhi is home from his surgery, and did fine, and we are relieved. The vet had a cancellation and was able to get him in today, rather than next week. We are so thankful for that…it was clear he was so uncomfortable, though like many dogs, he was stoic about it.
He looks a bit pathetic at the moment, with his eye socket swollen from the surgery, but he has some nice pain meds, an anti-inflammatory, and an antibiotic. And that evil cone of shame. He has a soft cone that should arrive tomorrow which will help, since bumping into things with the hard cone isn’t much fun. But he will feel better tomorrow and even better the next day, I’m sure. Lots of rest and TLC ahead for him. But just having that exploded eye out of there and the relieving of the pressure has to be a huge improvement.
A big PHEW!! for us…hopefully for him too. Thank you to all of you for your kind words and good thoughts and prayers for the guy.
