She is resting/sleeping a lot which is great. However, last night was not so great.
I tried to leave her on the couch to sleep and gated her in the living room but she cried. I let her on the bed and she literally was moving around every 5 min. She could not get comfortable and I was super conscious of her leg. I barely slept on and off through the night.
We were supposed to get up at 6:30 for our team run today and we opted not to go. I was completely exhausted and still had to get May out, give her pills, etc. It was not happening. It's OK. We can run on our own and I'd rather do that than run on no sleep.
We are thinking that Evie needs to be crated at night, unfortunately. If we give her a sedative pill and put her in there, she should be fine. She needs to sleep, too!
Today, we took that wrap off of her leg. Her incision & stitches look amazing - minimal bruising, great stitching. We are so so happy with the Sam's Clinic of Mill Valley, where the surgery was done. Dr. Sams is awesome - very gentle, transparent with all procedure details and costs, very patient. He is great.
She IS going to try to lick the crap out of this incision though so when we aren't home...she has to wear the cone. Sad! But, it's for her own good.
