We got Shasta bak on Fri. and she is doing very well! She didn’t eat much yesterday, but this morning ate a little over 1/2 of what she normally eats, she is also very thirsty.  She gets herself up and goes to our sliding glass door to let me know she wants to go outside to do her business. 

 We have 2 slight drops from our deck to her potty area on the side of our house and she was having a difficult time with this.  This morning my husband got his saw out and did some handy work and made it easier for her! She seems to be in pretty good spirits.  I just hope

She is draining quite a bit- drain hopefully comes out on Tuesday. We just got some old cotton shorts from out daughter and put them on her.  The shorts absorb all the fluid and she also can’t get to the wound site- so I don’t have to use that e-collar (she hates those!)

Thank you everyone for all your wonderful advice and support. I’ll update in a couple of days…keep your fingers crossed that everything goes as smooth as these past 2 days have!

Jerry- My kids would love to do a short blog post – school is tommorow so we’ve been a litlte busy with that, but they will soon!

Yeay, she’s home! So hoppy for your guys.

First few days are the most challenging. And if she’s eating even anything, that’s a great sign. Keep us posted.

Oh, tell your kids thanks, we can’t wait till they can find some time to write! Thanks a  bunch.
