Well, we're about 33 hours post surgery, and Eli is a completely different dog. Wide-eyed, shaking, whining, antsy..... it's a bit much. He also continues to bleed from his leg. There's a small incision beneath the major one, and since there's so much fluid building up, it bleeds and oozes each time he gets up. There's a path of blood from the crate to the front door. I wonder if that one needs stitches too. I'll be sleeping (if you can call it that) on the floor next to his ex-pen tonight to try and ward off any licking of his wound. I am anxiously awaiting the 72 hour mark, which I hear is a good one.
