Daisy came home last night after being at UT for a week. She is doing very well. Her leg is swollen; but, it looks better than it did before surgery. I think the biggest improvement is in her elbow. I can't believe how much smaller it is. She had so much scar tissue that it was as big as a tennis ball. The surgeon cleaned it up as much as possible.
I feel so bad for Daisy. She has to wear a e-collar any time that I am not with her. She is not wearing a cast. The doctors wanted her to use her leg as soon as possible. They felt a cast would discourage her from doing that.
She has to have ice on her leg three times a day. That's an adventure! I can't believe this sweet dog just had such an invasive surgery and she is ready to run and play already! Of course she is not allowed to do that - which makes her recovery a challenge. Daisy has pain medication which seems to sedate her. She sleeps a lot.
I do have pictures of her that I hope to post later today. Please keep Daisy in your thoughts and prayers.
