UPDATE: Post Surgery Day 10

It has been 10 days since her surgery and it is time for those ugly stitches to come out... So i asked Coco Bean if she was ready to go for a ride in the car and she ran to the closet because she knows she can not go out without a coat on:I took Coco Bean for a ride in the car to have her stitches out...it was a quick in and out procedure so i didn't have to be put into a room. they just took Coco Bean into the back and brought her back out to me no more than 5 minutes later :)

When we got home, Coco Bean was a very good girl and let me clean up the incision site because when they took the stitches out it bled a little, and she let me take a photo too!
Even though it was a quick simple procedure, shortly after we got home Coco Bean was tired from all the excitement, and was sitting at the bottom of my chair BEGGING to be held
Coco Bean is more wonderful than you can imagine. She knows exactly what she wants and if it is a lap to sit on, she settles down very quickly. At first, she wanted to look out the window:And when she was done with that, she fell fast asleep on my shoulder:
And from there, as if that wasn't comfortable enough, Coco Bean did what her favorite thing to do is...she insisted on crawling into my shirt and sleeping some more:
Coco Bean is using her leg a little more and more each day. I still dont let her wrestle with Lady Godiva & Truffle and oddly enough, she doesn't really try to partake in their crazy doggy derby bitey face sessions yet. I think she knows that she is not ready for that just quite yet.

Lady Godiva & Truffle spend a lot of time sitting with Coco Bean and cleaning her face and hears for her. they are being really good little nurses and i am very proud of them.

I will continue to keep you updated as Coco Bean's progress continues.

Back Scratches, Belly Rubs and Extra Cookies to you all,

We're so happy to see Coco's recovery continues to go so well. Sounds like she's pacing herself really well.

Have you considered getting her a snugli for her napping in close proximity to mom pleasure?
