My poor baby!

No creative post for this week or maybe even for the next few weeks.  I am on nurse duty.  My little baby had  surgery on her two back knees this past Monday.  She's slowly recovering, but today I notice a little swelling on her left leg.  Please say a prayer that it's nothing serious.  I will be taking her to the Vets tomorrow morning.  Hoping it's nothing and just part of the  healing process.  I'm taking her in because they say if there's swelling to take her in.  So hope it's just a precautionary thing they do. 

Here's some pictures of her progression from Monday night till today:

This was the first night we brought her home.  Wish the pic wasn't so dark, you would have seen her tongue sticking out.  It was cute and sad at the same time.   We had a bit of a rough night with her because she was in pain and uncomfortable.  She woke up every hour and we figured it was because she wanted us to turn her to her other side, she's usually a restless sleeper so once we did that she was fine.

Tuesday morning, she looked miserable.  But earlier we had given her her pain meds and she went right to sleep after we gave it to her.  It was adorable because she wanted to sleep on my chest so we both got a good three hour sleep.

This was taken after we came from the vets, he removed two of her bandages and she was a happy camper.  He also gave her a bigger cone since the other one was way too small and she was able to lick her stitches. 

This was taken today, since we didn't have to go to the vets nor were there any service people coming to the house I decided it would be a stay in bed day.  She and I hung out together all day keeping one another company.  She's such a great dog and an even better companion.  She's always entertaining me, even if she's not feeling well.  Gotta love her!

That's it for now...again, if you don't mind saying a prayer for her, we'd really appreciate it!  Have a Blessed Day!

Poor Roxy, I hope by the time you read this, she is feeling a little better.

It's good that she has you to nurse her back! ending Hugs!

Hope your baby gets to feel better soon! I love animals, also, and it breaks my heart when they don't feel good.
