He is home and recovering

January 12th, 2021

Hello Tripawd family,

So we got home and it been a slow go. Patches is able to stand for a bit. He has tumbled over my husband thinks that he forgets that there is no leg because it appears he is trying to shift his weight and then he falls. I have been using a sling for him to go to the bathroom. Today it appears he tried to get up and walk by himself. As I found him out of his bed where I left him while I took Mr. Groucho out and my husband took my daughter to the bus stop. Photo below. The incision site I think looks amazing! So Patches has been stitched in the muscle and then in a matter of speaking super glued the skin on top, looks good.

Currently waiting for him to poop. I say that out loud and it just sounds weird but its what I am waiting for but he is eating and drinking and peeing no problem though he is eating laying down for now.  I was very thankful for the Instagram post about the mastiff and it was 12 days before he was doing things independently. Its just 5 days post op so I keep saying everything will come with time.

    YAY Patches! You are on your way my friend. I’m so glad you are in recovery mode and getting spoiled rotten.

    Don’t worry, poop happens!

    Sweet Patches is recovering at his own pace and in his own way.
    And yes, we love to celebrate 💩💩, so let is know when 💩 happens!
    Hang in there! Recovery is no picnic at first, but it does get better!
    Hugs
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie!
