@thebiglybestestdoggie: Follow up appointment with vet went really well! So excited afterward that I jumped right into the driver seat, where I clearly belong. Momma didn’t think I was ready for that leap though, so I didn’t get to drive home after all. But at least my leg is finally healing well, and will be starting on physical therapy exercises this week! Hooray for progress!
After this long road to recovery, I really do think I’ve earned the right to drive…
~Happy Tuesday, friends! We’re so happy to finally be on the right track to recovery, and we appreciate each and every one of you for all your support!~
@thebiglybestestdoggie: Notice anything different about me? I’ll give you a hint: look at my neck! That’s right- I’m finally (FINALLY!) free from that torturous cone-shaped contraption! Still on antibiotics, but my leg is finally healing properly! AND… I even managed to take a short walk up and down my street today!
Keeping these paws crossed for continued progress!
~Happy Tuesday, friends! We are so happy to finally have some good news to share with you! Thank you for all your encouragement and support!~
@thebiglybestestdoggie: Lasted a whopping four days without this dreadful cone before landing back at the vet with another infection. Back to hopping around. Back to a bunch of medications. And back into the cone. I’m frustrated. Momma’s frustrated. Paws crossed this is the final bump in the road on my road to recovery…
This nonsense is getting old…
~Hey there, friends. Jett’s recovery process has not been going anywhere near as well as we would have liked. At this rate, we might be on track to setting a Guinness Record for the longest time a doggie has ever spent in a cone… Yikes!~
@thebiglybestestdoggie: Got lots of time on my paws while I work on recovering… so I decided it might be a good time to catch up on some reading. This goofy graphic novel is a real page turner!
If this book suddenly gets boring, guess I can always eat it…
~Happy Tuesday, friends!~
@thebiglybestestdoggie: Just when it seemed I was on the road to recovery, woke up one morning and realized something wasn’t right. All the progress made since surgery seemed to have disappeared, and I was in a lot of pain. Went back to the doctor, and discovered I had developed an infection. Looks like I’ll be wearing this cone for a while…
One step forward, two steps back…
~Hey, friends. Jett’s recovery process has been nothing short of frustrating and challenging, but here’s to hoping for better days ahead. Hope you are all doing well. We’ve missed you!~
@thebiglybestestdoggie: OMG! OMG! Momma coned the kid too! Wait, what? He’s willingly wearing that thing? In support of me?? Oh, that’s really sweet…
Whoa! What the heck just happened?
~Happy Tuesday, friends! Jett continues to improve a little more each day… and with any luck, he’ll be free from his stylish blue cone in just a few more days. Woo hoo!~
@thebiglybestestdoggie: Surgery went well. It was very rough at first, but I am slowly feeling a little better each day. Momma was so happy to see me finally smile again for the first time since last Thursday!
Heeeeyyy! Look at me being all cute and silly!
~Thank you, friends, for all your well wishes and positive thoughts. We are so grateful for you all. 💜~
@thebiglybestestdoggie: Today’s the day I get my leg fixed. Surgery is this morning, and I’m kind of scared. But Momma and Daddy will take good care of me while I recover, and those crazy kids are here all the time now, so I know they’ll help out too. I suppose it would be nice to not have to hop around on three legs anymore…
Please wish me lots of luck!
~Hey friends, hope you are doing well during these challenging times. Wishing you all good health and better days ahead. 💜~
@thebiglybestestdoggie: So I went back to the vet… and my leg is definitely not improving. He referred me to a veterinarian surgeon. Going for a consultation in a few days, but seems very likely I’ll be needing surgery if my leg has any chance of getting better. 😦
Just doing what I do best these days… sitting around, looking cute.
~Thank you all for your continued well wishes. It means so much to us, as we do our best to help The Bigly Bestest recover so he can get back to having more fun adventures soon. ❤ ~
@thebiglybestestdoggie: It’s been two weeks now, and I’m still very wobbly on my leg. Going back to the vet this morning to see what he says. Please wish me luck!
This is no fun, no fun at all. 😦
