My middle daughter was blaming Jennings gas on my son’s feet! But I think she was just trying to be a pest! LOL!
Jennings had a good night last night. He didn’t get up until about 6:30 this morning and went out, did his business then came in and went back to sleep until 10am. He seemed much more tired today. This afternoon I took him out to potty and he wanted to walk around and look at everything. I take him out on a leash and I try to keep him from moving too fast, but its hard. I could tell he was wearing out, he layed in the grass for a little bit then I made him go in. And I was relieved to see that the oozing had stopped this morning! I do wnloaded my pics from my cell to this computer so I’m going to try to figure out how to post them…wish me luck!
Thanks again for all the encouragement, tips and support! You’re all helping me more than you know!

I realize I’m a little late here, but just wanted to welcome you to our “club” … yes, it is a “club” no one wants to belong to, but Tripawds.com is really great for advice and support (as you have already seen). About the only additional advice I have for you is to keep Jennings’ toe nails short … otherwise, I think most everything was covered for the time being.
Glad to read Jennings is doing so well! I look forward to hearing about Jennings for a long, long time to come!
Amputation on 11/10/09, due to Histiocytic Sarcoma in left elbow. Angel Harley earned his wings on 06/24/10.

glad the oozing has stopped. don’t let him over do it – it was major surgery after all… there will still be good and bad days, but sounds like the good is already way surpassing the bad. YEAHHHHH. i recommend power napping for optimal healing!!
Life is good, so very, very good!!! Gayle enjoyed each and every moment of each and every wonderful day (naps included). She left this world December 12, 2011 – off on a new adventure.
