He keeps trying to brush off that silly cone from around his neck, but so far he's fairly good about it. It's difficult when he tries to go out the door and down about 5 steps, and then the return trip back up. The cone definitely gets in his way. Last night neither one of us got much sleep - we stayed in the living room and I tried to sleep on the couch. I think the sedatives affected him as well, but we both survived until this morning. I hope to sleep better tonight. He whined and cried nearly the whole night long.
The vet's office always calls after a visit, and today they wanted to know if the patient was doing okay. I told them that he would never get to the 10 day mark with that cone. I looked at the surgery site and to tell the truth it didn't look bad at all - I couldn't see any stitches, but they may all be internal. I'm just glad we have the first day behind us.
It has been drizzling or looking like rain all day long, but we have been able to get in a few short walks between the raindrops. The cone sure gets in his way when he wants to taste something on the ground!
I haven't been able to duplicate Donald's skills with the TV so far, and I'll have to ask him to give me another lesson, which I will write down. As remotes go it looks fairly easy, but I haven't had any luck.
The days go by pretty quick lately with the shortest day of the year coming up in a few weeks. I wish we could slow time down a bit. I hope you all enjoy the rest of this week and the end of November. I just can't believe December is almost upon us!
