I picked Joe up at 9:15 this morning. I talked to the vet who did his surgery (who happened to be one of our favorite vets). He said that Joe did great and that he let them know this morning that he was ready to go home. :-) The post opt vet tech loved Joe! He wasn’t crazy when she brought him in the room and he was walking on a loose leash for her. He was happy to see me and did his happy talk.
While we were checking out, Joe saw one of the receptionists who loves him and knows him by name. Several of the receptionists love Joe; one of them lives near us and always comes say hi when she sees us out and about.
The first thing Joe did when he got in the car was to pick up one of his bones and start chewing on it. He was very happy to get home and see Ely. Those two missed each other, but they both had to be reminded that they both can’t run yet, especially in the house.
Joe got some pain meds and seems to be his normal happy self. He was just rolling around on his back with a toy in his mouth. He has slept a bit more than he normally does, but that is to be expected.
I know he will be happy when he is all recovered and can go out and work again.
