The amputation was successful on Friday - we gave him a day to rest and visited him on Sunday. He is off morpine. He looked tired and weak, that is expected. He back end looked like Frankenstein - a lot of staples and stiches...and no leg
He did wag his tail and lick me a lot. We got him to eat some chicken, his first food in a week.
The Dr will look at him today and we maybe bringing him home this afternoon. As his good leg was Lag Bolted back together walking is an issue - we will have to use a sling on him for several weeks till that leg gets strong. Poor guy. I feel all the bad stuff is behind us and now its the task of healing and recovery. I do wonder what his brothers reaction will be once he comes home.
Thanks to everyone for their kind words. This past week has been rough
