Bionic Franken-dog!!

Riley doesn’t even need to dress up today for Halloween!  With all those staples in her leg, she can officially be “Bionic Franken-dog” for Halloween.  Hehe!  Is that bad?  Yes, that’s bad…

Riley’s “official” Halloween portrait from her pictures with Miss Amy back in June!
Franken-dog gets her staples out tomorrow!  Hooray!  We’ve almost made it 2 weeks!  Tomorrow will be two weeks after surgery.  Wow.  That time actually did seem to go by pretty fast, thank heavens!
I called Franken-dog’s surgeon’s office today to ask a few questions.  First was how long she should be taking Tramadol and how long she should be having heat on her leg.  We’re good to stop both.  Yay!  Then the next question was about how to do her physical therapy exercises and I just have to flex and extend her leg for 10 minutes at a time 2-3 times a day to prevent muscle atrophy.  Luckily, she had big muscles to start with!
Can I just say how nice the people are at Dr. Dassler’s office?  The receptionist answered my 2 calls today and was able to get answers to all of my questions and was just very pleasant in general.
Anywho…Riley has her 8 week follow-up appointment scheduled for December 14th at 9:00 AM.  She’ll get X-rays taken again (cha-ching!  $$$) and may have to be sedated for them (even more $$$).  I’m going to see if I can get a digital copy of the X-rays to post on here!  I want to see “Bionica’s” leg!  🙂
