A couple of people have asked me how Molly is doing following her surgery (four weeks ago yesterday) so I thought it time for a bloggy update on the matter.
She is doing well, but it will still be a couple of months before she will be at her best.
Ideally she won't have a limp and will be able to run freely and not pull up sore. I have my fingers crossed for that. At the very least I just hope she doesn't feel the pain she was experiencing before surgery.
She is using the leg quite well though I can still see her favouring her right leg when she stands. I have started short walks around the block but she gets grumpy with me and wants to go further. I'll increase them as the weeks go on. She is still supposed to walk not run, but tell her that. I've just started letting her off the lead to go out for toilet stops and she's behaving pretty well. She can be such a ratbag.
Her wound is pretty much healed though I dare say there'll be a permanent bald patch there. The rest of her leg (and her chest where they did the lumpectomy) are starting to darken with fur and feel so nice to pat - silky smooth! I can't wait to get her into the bath. All that licking has left her a bit 'woofy' in patches. I'll do that soon.
Well, that's about it. As good as can be expected I think.
I hope you guys are all doing well and enjoying the weekend.
I'm working but am looking forward to next weekend when I have a girls' weekend planned in Melbourne to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday. Should be a lot of fun.
I've been so slow to blog lately, lacking inspiration. At least next weekend should give me some ideas.
