To Dopey and his Family,

I have been gone all day and just came home and the first place I went was IMOM...

I am SO HAPPY that Dopey is going to get his surgery tomorrow morning...right now it's 3:15 in Ohio which I think is the same for you...pretty soon you'll be taking up Dopey's food and water and getting him ready for his 8:30 surgery...

I don't know if he has to spend the night or not, but see if you can bring a tee shirt from one of you that has your smell on it...when he wakes up from his surgery he will have a familiar scent with him...and he'll feel comforted...

I'll be checking in all day tomorrow to see how everything went...Hugs, Judy

I'm just stopping in to let you know I'll be thinking about you and Dopey tomorrow morning. I am so glad he doesn't have to wait any longer to start on his road to recovery.

Please give him a kiss on the forehead for me tomorrow morning, and tell him we'll be anxious to hear that he is out of surgery. He's been such a good boy.

I just looked at the clock and in less than an hour Dopey is going to get fixed up!!!

All I can say is YIPPEEE...

I know that you and your family are thrilled and Dopey is going to be as good as new once he gets through his recovery...he has a wonderful family that cares alot about him so in a couple of weeks or so he's going to be going on his walks with his brother again...

Can't wait to see that all is well...Hugs, Judy

Nelson says he and the two dogs are still taking walks, but it is strange with Dopey's leg being hurt. He, like his whole family, is suffering with Dopey. He and his family thank IMOM for the wonderful program.

hello everyone, well we jus picked up Dopey not to long ago from his surgery, and as happy as i am that he got it, it just hurts to see him like this. the doctor said his recovery will be about a month. he just looks so bad and like if he is in so much pain... i will keep all of you in the loop of what is going on day by day of this journey we are going through. again many thanks to everyone on hear....

(i dont mean to sound so down and out but seeing Dopey like this is so hard, seeing him in pain and not really being able to stop the pain is just hard on the family, but we are very grateful.. i know Dopey needed the surgery and that his pain is on temporary)

Ooh, I know it is hard to see Dopey like this, but you know Dopey is feeling tons better already even despite the stitches. Just think how happy Dopey will be on that first walk you are able to go on together. It'll get better, and really quickly!

I know it is difficult to see your sweet little Dopey like this - - but, PLEASE remember, while it is difficult seeing him in discomfort after this surgery ~ you will be having SO much fun with him and his brother on those special walks together when you ALL ring in the New Year !!!!

Please give him some gentle hugs and kisses from my Bandit and me. And may God bless Dopey and your family as you go through recovery process.

Feliz Navidad, Prospero Ano y Felicidad !!!

Love, :hugs: and Purrs ~

The 1st three days after the operation are always tough. Part of it is the effects of the anesthesia, but for a mom and dad, it's very hard to watch. I hope the vet provided adequate pain medication, but at the same time, Dopey needs to realize he is sore so he doesn't do too much.

The month is critical to how he will heal for the long run. As tempting as it is going to be for him to move and jump and play, especially with the holidays, he needs to rest too. Just keep loving him and talking to him, and letting him know you are there.

I know how hard it is to see Dopey groggy and worse yet, in pain, especially when you love him so.

Did the vet give you a "cone" for his neck so he doesn't irritate or wrose yet, tear out his stitches?

Does he have to be contained? I would imagine he is on restricted activity for his month re-cuperation, right?

As he starts feeling better it's going to be harder to keep him quiet...and that's when you'll know he's soon going to be feeling like his old self...

I know that this is really tough for you but your love for him is going to make it somewhat easier...after these first couple of days he's going to start feeling better and better...

THANKS for the update yesterday and I hope you have better news when you post tonight or tomorrow...Hugs...Judy

I'm so happy to hear that Dopey's surgery went well and that he's back home with his family. I'm going to move his thread to Happy Endings.

Thanks to all of the amazing angels who helped Dopey!

hello imom, Dopey is a little better but still in pain. he did cry in pain last night in the middle of the night, but during the day he didnt cry as much. He does have a cone on his head which i can tell he really hates it, and the doctor told us that Dopey and Scrappy could not be around each other for the first couple of days, so that Scrappy dont hurt him. but we can see that they hate being apart. Scrappy crys and circles around where we have Dopey. that is hard to watch but like many of you guys said its just for now and he will be running and having fun in no time.. Thank you all for being so nice to us and having us in your hearts... i will have more updates later
