I wasn’t able to visit Mr Darcy today. The nurse told me he would get too excited when he saw me and we need him to be very still in order to make a proper recovery. So I just dropped off some more food for him, even though that was quite pointless as his appetite has not returned yet.
Sorry there was an ambiguity in my last post concerning the reaction Mr Darcy had with the anaesthetic. The reaction wasn’t so much to do with the fact Mr Darcy is a big boy as that a fair amount of function returned to his spinal cord the moment the last bit of bone was removed; this changed the effect the anaesthetic was having on his body! But yes, big dogs are prone to problems with anaesthetic. This was the fist time Mr Darcy had a problem, although he has been under a general anaesthetic five times now; so we’ve been lucky. At the Vet school Mr darcy has an actual anaesthetist taking care of him during the operation so it makes it much safer.
The vet said all things goin well Mr Darcy might come home in 5 days time! I know how am I going to wait that long – and how are all you dear readers going to put up with my drab writing!!!
Well I think the solution lies in some puppy photos.
sorry about our back yard, it is most definitely a work in progress; very slow progress…
