Here is some news about Pawppy's surgery today.
They had a bit of a wait at the hosp. this am, but then he was taken back, about 15min later than first thought. He was in the OR about 90 minutes, then the surgeon came out to talk to meowmy, he also showed meowmy a picture of the old joint. There was NO cartilage left on it at all.
He said that he thought this was caused by a shallow joint 'cup' a congenital malformation.
Pawppy then told everyone in the room that he had been having a soreness there most of his life...go figure.
Maybe he thought this was just how he was until recently when it got to be unbearable, and likely worsened by that fall he had 4 years ago.
He had a lot of severe pain right after the op, but once that got under control he did much better.
He had a good liquid lunch...YUCK!
Then he had some rest until before supper.
Well, when the nurses let him sit on the side of the bed, he felt very faint, so it didn't last long...
But he was eating a solid real food dinner, and looking 100% better at 9pm than earlier this afternoon.
So that is progress...and he isn't using morphine anymore, just a more ordinary analgesic.
Tomorrow the PT & OT peeps will assess him and design a 'plan'.
Well, thanks for your thoughts and prayers and our tired meowmy is going off to bed!
Tomorrow will be another busy day!
Continued purrs for his recovery guys! Glad to hear this all went okay. Love you!
Sending him lotsa purrs!
We will be purring for your pawppy and also your meowmy. It sounds like this has been a very stressful situation for everyone.....Maybe this will help your pawppy feel a little better - the big cats just clinched their division and are on their way to the playoffs (that's the Tigers if anyfur is wondering).
Hugs and healing purrs,
Gumpy & family
