The waiting is over the poor pup is recovering now. He will stay with the Vet for 2 more days to come home on Friday. hubby will be home on the weekend to carry the pup up and down the stairs. Monday I will carry him for his mid day out. I went to the Fabric store and bought denim for a floor quilt for him. No up and down on the couch. The surgery went well but he may have pulled the suture thru the ligament. So he needs to stay calm, not an easy thing for Max. So medication is the way we will go for him. Keep him in your prayers for a complete successful recovery. Wish me luck. Cut, Piece and Quilt Enough!
