UPDATE: BHRR's Maverick's surgery was a THUMBS up! I have copy of x-rays to post when I get home from work and took a couple of post-op photos. He is so freaking adorable and amazing! 🙂
As soon as he became 'aware' that I was there, he was working to pull his head up and move. I WUV him so much!
THANKS Auntie Margaret for dropping by KAH and for giving him some special loving! He will be your 'date' for Sunday and I may put another approved BHRR Volunteer with him too to ensure he stays quiet.
Per DP, he did the most deformed leg first and as he is such a big dog, and still growing, he put an external stabilizer bar to help keep things in place and that he does not exactly have another great front leg to help him out right now. He has a plate and pins on the inside once DP performed the osteoctomy surgery.
He was so scared at reception when he was first dropped off, yet, fared better as time went on…..
I will take his bandages and packing off in about 5 days time(unless I need to re-pack and re-bandage before that time) and going to keep him on fluids until just before I leave tonight.
ALL those well wishes are working!!!
NOW, he needs healing vibes….he has a LONG road ahead and I will bring him back in 8 weeks for post-op x-rays, first post-op follow-up and to possibly remove the external stabilizer then too under a light sedation.
I am sooooooooooooooooooooo relieved and thanks everyone for the blanket donations and Fiona Cousineau those homemade 'pads' are going to be great for drainage.
For all those that have been texting, emailing plus calling as to what he needs – his biggest thing is time….quiet time and the obvious is donations to help pay off his thousands and thousands and thousands of Vet bills, yet, my priority and biggest worry is to just take it one day at a time to get him back up on his feet, healing well and moving forward in his rehab!
I will be looking into possible massage and hydrotherapy if he proves to be a good candidate.
In 12 weeks time, hopefully, we can do the second deformed leg!
SOOOOOOOOOO appreciative and feeling blessed by our BHRR village today! SUCH good folks standing beside us!!
AND, Lion King BHRR's Timon is going to be JUST thrilled to see his best bud tonight! THEY are two peas in a pod!

AND, BHRR's Maverick put on another 9.24 pounds!!!! 😀
