    Truman is officially out of surgery and waking up.

    The good news is that he only needed two out of the three surgeries - the two less invasive ones too! So he got neutered today and also had the JPS surgery, which destroys the growth plate in the bottom of the pubic bone on growing dogs to encourage the top of the pubic bone to continue to grow around the femur and form better joints. It has a 90% success rate in dogs 16 weeks or younger, but every dog grows different, so we have our fingers crossed.

    He did not need the big surgery - the FHO or femoral head ostectomy, which basically removes the ball of the femur bone to create a false hip joint. The surgeon found that the bad hip was not as bad as she thought from the x rays so she stitched the partially dislocated hip back into place and now we wait for him to grown and, hopefully, the hips to get better. They will know for sure how good the JPS worked by 7 months but most likely sooner.

    Truman is still at the surgeon's office. He is going to stay overnight since his surgery was later in the day so he can be monitored but he should be good to go tomorrow morning. I am told his spirits are good and he can't wait to see his momma!

    Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers. I will continue to update as new details roll in!

    Great news on the success of the surgeries. Truman is absolutely adorable, (but then you already knew that) I hope this works out well for him!

    He is soooooo freaking cute. I never really cared for "brindle" but Truman has changed my mind.

    Oh what good news! Cant wait till you get him home and are able to start healing. How long is that process estimated to take? Do you have to keep him locked up so he doesnt move or are they wanting him to move or what? Just being nosey, dont mind me.

    **clapping hands** Fantastic news that it all went well, and that he didn't need the more major surgery!! Let's hope that he recovers fast - puppies bounce back quick! Your next major task will probably be to try and keep him as quiet and still as he is supposed to be after that kind of surgery!!!
