Thank you all so much for your encouraging words! Rylee is doing SO GOOD!!! She woke up, ate breakfast, was mad that there wasn’t more breakfast, ate her cheese (with meds in it), was mad that there wasn’t more cheese, BUSTED OUT OF HER EX-PEN which we forgot to latch, dragged her daddy outside, peed, pooped, and hopped back to bed. icon_lol

I’m so excited about the poop! We hadn’t been expecting her to poop anytime soon because of the pain meds. She is on Rimadyl twice per day and Gabapentin three times per day for pain, as well as an antibiotic (Clavamox) twice per day. She had an infusion of Nocita (a local anesthetic) around the incision site, which will keep working for about 72 hours, so I’m expecting her to be a bit more uncomfortable tomorrow after that wears off. But her attitude couldn’t be better! She’s just such a happy girl and I’m so relieved to see that hasn’t changed. 

I can’t thank y’all enough for being here! This site is a godsend! sp_hearticon2

She already pooped! Wow, she is way ahead of the cure! And eating on her own! All I can say is wow! She must really be happy that bum leg is gone, and she is home with her family.

I am Soooo Happy For All of You!

Yeeehaw! That’s the hoppiest news I’ve heard all day, thanks for sharing. And I love love love that she was able to get Nocita, it’s a terrific new pain drug.

She’s not really stubborn, but she definitely makes her opinions known. LOL! Right now, she’s giving me an earful because she wants more breakfast and she wants out of her ex-pen. 😂

Oh, so she talks back. That is the main thing I miss about Brownie.

I just love the lab breed. Black, yellow, and of course choc.  So loveable, but determined and protective.

I am so happy she is doing so well! She will continue to surprise you as this journey begins.

That talking is a great sign, that’s when you know things are on the upswing. It’s wonderful to know that her sparkle is returning!

The sparkle is definitely back! I was nervous when we brought her home on Friday because she was so quiet and reserved, which is not like her at all. But that was 100% the drugs. Saturday morning, she was back! ❤️
