Daddy's Surgery

Hi EveryPuppy,

Here is a Daddy After Surgery Update:

Daddy had his surgery on his left shoulder yesterday (Friday). Mommy said that he had to be there at 9:30am & since there was a cancellation, his surgery was scheduled at 11:15am rather than 12:30. Mommy got to see Daddy after the surgery at around 2:30pm. He was wide awake, but not bushy-tailed, haroo! The doctor found a big bone spur, bursitis, & a small tear. He cleaned up the bone spur, bursitis & was able to cut out the tear. They did it arthroscopically (which means no major cutting as Mommy 'splained to us) sos R Daddy will have a quicker recovery. While Mommy was present, Daddy asked his Doc if he could drive. With witnesses around to make sure Mommy heard right, the Doc said that Daddy could drive (some times - more than some times -R Daddy is difficult & rush the recovery issue after a surgery, like trying to mow the lawn after gall bladder surgery, or driving after the Doc reattached his bicep back on his tendon in his right arm 2 yrs. ago!) as long as he hasn't taken a pain pill.

Well, by the time they came home yesterday, fed us, fed them & cleaned up, Mommy & Daddy were tuckered out. Sos we all had a jamie party & veged out & watched TV.

Til next time,

-da boys, Cosmos & Juneau-

Glad your dad is home and feeling okay. You probably shouldn't play fetch with him for a while though.

We're glad Dad's surgery went well. You could both squish him onto the sofa so he can't get up for awhile. Make sure you share your dog cookies with him too.

Good luck to your hu-dad. Our hu-dad had back surgery a few years ago and he tried to ignore the doctors advice to not walk us - imagine that!
