    @ChanelnBrutus - Each time I tell someone were using Garden State, I get positive responses! That is SO reassuring to us!
    @Chunksmama - You're so sweet, Turi. I'll text you when we hear back today after his surgery. We miss you guys! Hugs to everyone and special kisses to my Chunk and Baby C!

    Thanks everyone. We're leaving in about 25 minutes. Oliver is still asleep which is weird. He is always up at 6am. He isn't allowed to eat so his personal alarm clock (the sound of his food hitting the bowl) hasn't woken him up yet. Ha! Everyone here is so kind and we appreciate it.

    Whew! We dropped Oliver off at 8am and were told his surgery would be in the early afternoon. Instead, they just called (at 11:am) and said they ended up taking him early. Surgery went well, he did great and was just waking up! He will be on morphine throughout today and tonight. They will call us tomorrow morning at 9 to let us know when we can bring him home. We're SO relieved it all went well. And now, onto recovery! Thank you all for your support!

    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Well, Oliver is home and sleeping soundly. He wasn't very happy to see us at first. I honestly believe he was angry at us for those first 5 seconds. But then he felt better when we said the key word.."home". He is shaved almost up to his hip, however they left a fur "bootie" around his foot. It's pretty comical. We were told he doesn't HAVE to be crated as long as we keep him confined to a small room, preferably with carpeting. So he is in his usual spot right now, on his nice bed in our bedroom.

    They tried feeding him this morning and he refused to eat. He was starving when he got home so I was happy to see him snorffling down some food. We have 3 medications, one being a pain medication that will make him sleepy - which he needs right now. He doesn't seem to be in pain but he does seem very nervous, which I completely understand.

    We were surprised that the doctor told us he CAN go down our 2 concrete steps to go out to the bathroom, IF we feel comfortable with him doing so. Otherwise, the doctor said to carry him or sling-walk him out. (we're carrying him for the next 2 days) He can put weight on his leg ONLY to pee or poop - and naturally, must be leashed.

    His stitches come out in 10 days, on June 1st.
    I was also surprised that we weren't given any exercises to do with Oliver but secretly, I'm relieved. I was worried I would hurt him.

    My biggest issue right now is physical therapy. We have opted to do it. The doctor doesn't recommend it until after Oliver's 6 week visit - but the physical therapist said she always begins therapy after CCL in two weeks. I think we will call our own vet to ask for advice.

    I'll update as we progress! Pictures below. (He was eating a treat in the first picture. Ha!)
