She's home!

Disclaimer: Do not look at the pictures if you don't like to see the "med" stuff.

Yes, my baby is finally home...and looking the best that she has in the past 7 days!! She's happily sleeping next to my feet, and couldn't be happier to be back in familiar surroundings. I still can't believe the difference 24 hours can make in her recovery...besides some funny walking and silly shavings, you would never know what she just went through! She greeted me at the door today with a wagging tail (we have a glass screen door and she can see when cars pull up), and has even been going up and down stairs! Perhaps the ONLY good part of this whole ordeal is that Tyanna lost the extra pounds that we were working off, and is back to ideal weight.

I have plans to go out to dinner tonight and out on Sunday, but other than that, I will be home helping her recover. Next Thursday she will be going to another CCI PRs house while I am in Saint Louis for a college interview. She will be the only dog in the house, and the lady she is staying with is a nurse, and has plenty experience with this stuff, so I feel completely confident with Tyanna being with her for a few days. She will even be accompanying this lady to work on Friday, and working on some commands through out the weekend. This will also be a great experience for the adolescent Tyanna who has recently begun to get a little "loose" with other handlers other than myself.

Here are some pictures of her incision:

whoa! They shaved her up pretty good! Rei's was just around the belly area so you couldn't see it unless she was jumping.....course she did that a lot...
