Yesterday marked two months since Chelsea’s FHO surgery. She continues to improve daily and her hair is slowly but surely growing back. We’ve been walking, swimming and stretching to continue rehabilitation but Chelsea’s favorite part is finally being able to play with Scarlett and Harley. She can also run now and we play fetch outside daily to continue to grow her leg muscles. When she’s running, she uses both back legs equally as opposed to slightly favoring her “good” leg when she walks.
Though we are only a third of the way through Chelsea’s complete rehabilitation, it is clear she is healing fantastically. Last week, we got a sweet surprise as we watched her jump on the sofa for the first time ever unassisted! She just pulled herself on up– something she has never been able to do, even before surgery. It was a very proud moment for all of us 🙂
We also want to thank everyone for the kind, supportive comments and encouragement for our baby girl, Scarlett. She is really improving on these meds so we have our fingers crossed that FHO surgery will be months or even years away!
Happy St. Patricks Day to all of our two and four-legged friends! We hope you have a great weekend 🙂
