Heisman has seen continuing progress on the Cipro for the staph. We have no bruising, no swelling, and, best of all, NO LIMP!
On Friday, Heisman goes for her 8 week appointment, where she will be sedated and re-x-rayed for the first time since surgery. I have always known that this is a milestone for her, but not exactly sure what it will entail for the days following the business. It is very clear that life cannot return to "normal," but I hope that Heisman can start regaining some of the freedom of life before surgery (that is, before we take it away again for the second surgery).
She is beginning to become "used to" this lifestyle, very lazy all day and very accustomed to sleeping at all times. I am very anxious to get her out of this house some, even on short walks - just so that she has SOMETHING to look forward to.
She is limping some on the other leg, and alternates which leg she will "tuck under" her when she sits. That's another question that we will have to ask on Friday - how long until surgery number 2? While I want to give her right leg long enough to heal, I am anxious to have both surgeries behind us so that we can fully resume a "normal" life.
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers - look for an update when I get home from work on Friday, and keep praying for good news!
