Lillie's home

Hi Everyone! Thanks again for checking on us. This is Lillie's mom. I just want to update quick and will post more when we have time. Lillie came home this afternoon. She is in quite a bit of pain and is very sad. I think she feels better to be at home in her own bed, but it is hard to tell what she needs. She seems very uncomfortable and anxious. Right now we have her on our bed (She let us lift her up there) and she is trying to rest. Occasionally she will cry out as though she is in pain. Sometimes she just whimpers. We'll have to see what tonight brings..... She came home on several medications; an antibiotic, an anti-inflammatory and a narcotic. We can't give the narcotic (Tramadol) until later this evening and hopefully that will help her rest. Keeping her quiet won't be too difficult tonight. Keeping her comfortable will. I feel so bad, I just don't know what to do. Jordan and I went to Petco this afternoon and got her a new toy. We got some chewies too but the ones we got don't take her long to chew. I need to find her something that will keep her busy. Well, I need to go. Dr. Cal said we need to ice her knee twice a day and its about that time. Her insicion looks very painful. I will take some pictures and post them soon. I just want her to perk up a bit before I do that. Jordan says her leg looks like a chicken leg- its shaved completely from her thigh to ankle. Thanks again for all the well wishes. We really appreciate it.
Lots of belly scratches to all you dogs with blogs.
Amy (Lillie's mom)

We are glad Lillie is home with her family. Time will help her heal and feel better. Mom says she sort of knows how you feel. She felt the same when she took Roxie for her spay and Roxie only felt bad for a day or two. She can't imagine what you have in store. Lillie is lucky to have such special humans in her life.

Poor, poor Lillie. I hate to think of you being in pain sweet girl. I hope the Tramadol will enable you to snooze a little.

Boy are we glad you are home now Lillie. You'll feel much better there being around everyone that loves you. We're glad they fixed your knee all up. We were just reading about that the other day on the web. Seems lots of doggies are born with that problem. Mama says the Tramadol will do wonders for you. She's been on it non-stop for years for her Fibromyalgia & Arthritis pains. Hope you're feeling better real soon.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
