Well just as most of you have said, days 3 and 4 have been really rough on our little guy. We are mastering going to the bathroom which is amazing, but the sadness upon his sweet face is just heartbreaking. We can tell he is in immense pain. His behavior has also changed too—he’s wanting to hide in rooms and under tables away from the family, which is not like him. We did make a few calls to the surgery team today and they prescribed another pain medicine to add in. Throughout the day, we are also icing to help with swelling. I did notice some bruising on his stomach and sent in pictures to our vet as well. They also reassured me that it is very normal and we may see some fluid build up as well, which we started noticing this afternoon.
We know it’s going to get worse before it gets better, but we just want to see his spunky, energetic, life of the party personality to show again really soon! We know it will come with time so we are staying optimistic and taking it day by day! Pain management and keeping him comfortable is going to be our focus 10000% in the coming week. Please pray for Otto (and our breaking hearts) ❤️
