July 10th, 2012it worked!
Regina had her first post-op appointment today – eight extremely long weeks after her ligament surgery – and we’ve been given new marching orders. 10 minute leashed walks (and she’s allowed to do stairs) for a week (then 20, 30 and 45 minutes in the next three weeks). Apparently we did a good job keeping her mellowed out (uh, no, but thank you?) and restricting her movements (oy) and her leg has healed quite well.
Incidentally the Peanut has taken to poking her in the eyes (and she lets him – wtf), so I think she’ll be more than happy to get some outside time away from his grubby paws.
