I started writing a post about how nice it was to have Leo back home after his operation, but before I posted it he was taken back to the hospital in a pet ambulance after being back for only two days.
He was supposed to stay for one night and ended up staying for four. It was a joy to pick him up. He was so happy to see us that he tried jumping and we all had to restrain him so he won't hurt his leg. The vet inserted a big metal plaque secured with big screws and he must take it easy for at least six weeks. No running, no jumping and no falling. We even reinstalled the child's gate at the top of the stairs to prevent Leo from running down the stairs in case someone rang the doorbell.
As soon as he came back he started licking his bandage off and managed to infect his wound. On Sunday morning he didn't touch his food and barely moved, putting no weight on his bad leg even though he had started to slowly use it again. Off he went...
Dexter was depressed to lose his brother again, but he bounced back since. Leo also didn't eat very well at the hospital so I cooked him some chicken livers and drove over to deliver the liver (hahaha) and I heard that he wolfed it down. He's feeling better now, so hopefully he'll be back home before the weekend.
Deliver the liver... Haw!
