Day 12 ~ Slow & Steady

Lyla is slowly progressing a bit more as each day passes. Spending the evenings in the recovery room sleeping with her cone on and the days out and about the home without her cone and constant supervision. In the middle of the day she needs a long nap from overdoing it a bit. Trying to slowly ease her into it all so her good leg can handle it, I still worry about it being a FHO leg and hoping the range of motion is working okay for her body as a whole.

The photo above has some corrugated cardboard stackable squares we had from target, so we sawed one in half to make her a stair to the chair and another for the sofa.

The wound area looks good still and her hair is slowly growing in.

Tonight as it was nearing nighttime I was procrastinating on putting her cone on and in just a couple seconds she starting biting at her stitches ๐Ÿฅด So I cleaned it with the spray just to be safe and luckily it all looks good. Cone back on for the night, I do give her a treat right after and at least she doesnโ€™t hiss at me now๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

  1. Ooooh I love what you did with the stackable squares! Brilliant!

    3-paws up to you for being so good about the cone of shame. I can tell you are so conscientious about making sure she recovers properly. Good job!

  2. Queen Lyla certainly has a comfy throne to take her naps! And yes, the steps to her throne are purrfect!๐Ÿ˜Ž

    You are taking great care of Lyla. As you get firther away from recovery, you’ll relax more and more and worry less.

    Give her an extra treat because…..because she’s Lyla!!๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
