What a day! I’m not sure how you lose a 120lb dog but I did it .twice today. One minute she is sleeping so I drift off next to her, the next she has wandered off somewhere and I have to go hunt her down. But on the bright side she is moving pretty good. Until I try to get her to go to the bathroom, then she becomes dead weight that we have to lift out to the backyard and lay her in the grass. She sure does know how to work it! Lol  she prefers to lay on the floor and on the side she had her surgery on rather than any of the dog beds something her daddy gets concerned about but I’m pretty sure if it hurts she will roll over and get onto a bed. Izzy is just amazing us. And I’m doing pretty good at letting her find her own way around and not helping her too much. I’m more concerned with how her pain meds are affecting her balance right now and I’m sure she get more mobile as she needs less pain management, right now I’m keeping to her maximum schedule for them since it’s only about 48 hours post op. Rome wasn’t built in a day after all. I am so grateful that her recovery is going so well so far and staying optimistic that the trend will continue. Although I sure am regretting that I haven’t made it to the gym in a couple of months because hauling a huge dog around ain’t easy on the muscles!😁

    Yay for Izzy! If she is on Gabapentin, that will make her a bit sedated and off balance, yet it helps. Stay ahead of the pain as you are already doing. Remember not to expect much that first week other than to get her outside and keep her eating.

    The chat room on this site is great too, if someone is on and you have a question or just need some support.

    You are doing great!

    So glad she is home, I know that work or not you’re happy to have her home with you 💖
    Izzy, be a good girl and don’t break your pawrents backs when it comes time to potty. Just go nice and slow, you’ll be fine 😉
    Thank you for such a great update! I hope things keep going well for you ❤️❤️❤️

    Welcome home Izzy! Sounds like you’re finding your way around pretty darn good.

    Yeah, pain meds make pups dopey but you’ll get the hang of things soon. As long as the pain is under control, recovery goes smoothly. Glad to hear your peeps are staying on top of it.

    Let us know if we can help with anything OK?
