We took Olive for her four week checkup yesterday with her surgeon. He said that she’s healing well, and that she no longer needs the sling assist while on walks. I’d say over the last week to ten days, she’s been using the leg normally, and is getting around much like her old self. We have started giving her a little bit more freedom around the house – mostly in the kitchen when we’re preparing meals or during the day when the sun is at it’s peak.
She had a 30 minute rehab appointment last week, and she did 8 minutes in the hydrotherapy tub. She was a wee bit apprehensive at first, but she quickly got into the groove. She’s been crushing her exercises at home, so we are very proud of her progress! She has an hour appointment this week, so we’re anxious to get back into the routine. We scheduled her eight week appointment for March 18th, and so we can feel the end is in sight!!
Thanks for following along on Olive’s journey!
