Charlie's home!

Charlie came home today from the vet. His surgery went well, but the vet said there was a lot of scar tissue around the break which means that Charlie's hip was probably broken for longer than we thought. He will undoubtedly be much more comfortable once he heals up than he was before the surgery.
He has to wear a cone to keep him from messing with his stitches and his right hindquarters are shaved. He looks pretty pathetic and we are already counting down the days to his stitches coming out so he won't have to wear the cone anymore. But most of all we are just glad to have him home and healthy.I'm curious to see what he's going to look like in the coming months as his hair grows back in. Should be interesting...

Oh, Kate, it's really not as bad as I thought. I wish I would have taken pictures of Regan after his procedure... He looked very similar. It always seems so horrible when they can't communicate with you and you imagine the worst. Just keep him good and drugged up and he'll be back to his old self in no time.
