    Truman has his post op follow up tomorrow morning! I am hoping for the best since everything would indicate he's on the road to a good recovery but I will update as soon as I get home since I know you have all been following and supporting since Truman's hip blew out. For now, he's trying to keep cool by relaxing in the leaves under the tree in the yard:

    Truman's appointment went well today. Actually it was one of the most bizarre appointments I've ever been to but no bad news to report.

    I looked his post-op x rays with the surgeon and she watched him walk around and said something like "we'll be optimistic because he's so cute." What? I didn't know what to make of that kind of comment. First, to my eye, he is doing exceptionally well and building the muscle back up his hip. She said she "couldn't remember" how he was walking on the hip before...there was a BIG improvement almost immediately. But second, I would prefer the surgeon to avoid discussing working his cuteness into his prognosis. She drew a diagram of the surgery that was performed on a white board and showed me the adjustments she made to the surgery because he is so young for his growth plates and seemed to be second-guessing her decision as she spoke. It wasn't the highest degree of professionalism I've seen out of a vet but since she performed the surgery, we will ride this out.

    In any case, he is doing good, the use of his right hip is very good thus far, and he will go for another follow up in two weeks to get a last set of x rays to see how the hips are developing as he ages and JPS has time to work. To this point, I am thrilled with his progress - he stands more, uses both of his legs more, and I remain very optimistic - regardless of his cuteness!

    That is exactly right, I have no idea what I would do without this board and all the great advice when the worse case scenario kept becoming reality.

    Just a quick update on Truman, now that is he almost one month post op - he's doing really well! So far, so good. He is walking with weight on both legs and right hip continues to build muscle and recover. His hair is almost grown in and when I took him to visit one of my friend, he's commented that if he didn't know Truman had hip surgery, he would not know there was ever anything wrong with him - so that was encouraging.

    All of his post op follow ups have been good so now we just wait to see how the JPS worked and continue to give him plenty of care, rest, and (controlled!) play time with his big brother. This pic was taken this afternoon. Baby T looks so funny in it, I joked that he is going to take up a career in the bulldog ballet once his hip is fully recovered, he looks like a ballerina to me!
