Doctor Today - Updated

We have an appointment to see the surgeon in Vegas at 1345 this afternoon. We're anxious and praying for a good outcome. Angus has been doing really well so we're optimistic but fear lies just below the surface. I'll post an update as soon as we get home.

Fingers crossed.

Update: We're home from the appointment. The news is good.
Doc took new X-Rays and removed the old splint/cast. He said it all looks good so far but because the break was so bad he wanted to wait another 4 weeks before releasing him to full duty (as it were). Angus got a new soft cast that will allow him to start walking more on his paw. Doc wants us to keep him activity limited for a while yet. He'll get the soft cast off in 2 weeks and start serious rehab then. Especially swimming. We see the Doc again for hopefully the last time in 4 weeks. Until then it's business as usual. Not as good as we wished but much better than it could have been. Doc is pleased with his progress but an injury like his just takes time to heal. That's Ok because if there's one thing our dogs have taught us it's patience. We're happy. Angus' energy level has returned to what it was pre-injury. He's off the pain meds and acting like his old self. Heck, we can't let him off leash lest he get the rips and take off running. We didn't get any pics but here's one I took the other day. Angus curled up on the couch with Mommy. He's so cute.

We'll keep Angus in our prayers, and remember: "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love, and a strong mind."
(2 Timothy 1:7)

I believe Angus will be fine! :^)

That's beautiful Rev. Thank you.

Thanks NFO. I think he's progressing nicely. Doc was pleased.

Thanks Brigid! The news was good.

It was Dann. As well as we could reasonably expect. Thanks.

That's good news, but with the soft cast and him walking on the paw, keeping him 'quiet' is going to be a PITA!
