DAY 6: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MESA!!
Today is recovery day 6. It is also Mesa's 9th birthday! He looks thrilled, doesn't he? He seems to be feeling pretty good. He still struggles with getting comfy. He'll rest in one spot for awhile, then move to another, then another. Truman has been taking his fair share of time on the nice, big ortho bed.
Mesa has a small spot on his outside incision that looks a little red today. Looks like he might have licked it a little when I wasn't looking. Definitely something we will be keeping a close eye on. Or perhaps he will just have to wear his comfy cone more often....yuck!!
I'm heading back to work tomorrow....the original plan was to barricade Mesa in the kitchen so he couldn't get around much and so Truman won't be able to get to his incision or risk the chance of him knocking Mesa down. BUT, there is a new plan!!! Gpa & Gma to the rescue!! Gpa is coming over in the morning, Gma in the afternoon. What a huge relief to have someone with Mesa. I know he will be much happier too. Hopefully he and Tru Tru behave....
Mesa is staring at me right now....I think he is demanding his birthday present!
