Char is Healing!!!!

April 3rd, 2017 by

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Finally got to lay in his favorite spot on the couch!

My little munchkin is healing!!! YAY! His bruising is nearly gone. His drain hole is 80% closed up and has completely stopped leaking! Woot! He’s up hopping around everywhere and wanting to let his weeks of built up energy out, but mommy and daddy say no. Charlie’s stitches are itching him like crazy though lol scary when he tries to scratch it, so we gently do it for him. Almost all of his dried blood has been cleaned off or fallen off. His ears are soft and kissable again (we like to kiss behind them). Eating and drinking and relieving himself perfectly. Thank YOU for all of the support. I do have a question, will the excess skin from the amp eventually recede back against his body or will it remain giggly like it is? Just curious.

    THIS UPDATE MAKES MY DY…MY WEEK…A D BEYOND!!!! 🙂 Sooooo thrilled to hear how well Charlie is doing!!! You both stayed the course and yiu are fi ally starting to see the rewards!!! 🙂 🙂 GRRRRREAT JOB!! 🙂

    The pictures look soooo much better!!! SO MUCH BETTER!! 🙂

    Yeah, the excess giggly skin eventually tightens up. She had a lot of swelling. Guess it’s sort of like if a human has swelling from a sprain, or whatever, the skin is stretched butnit eventually tightens back up.

    Thanks for this great update!! Still grinning ear to ear over here! 🙂

      Thanks so much! Yeah that makes sense. After his first surgery his skin was stretched over his stump so we didn’t notice anything, but with this one he’s got all of this empty space. He’s so cute though. If he is a jiggly boy forever idc as long as he’s happy and healthy!

    SO HAPPY TO READ THIS!! Royal has a lil bump of skin that stayed that way but after the stitches and staples (royal had 26) came out it healed right over and you can barely see a scar. Heads up don’t freak out when his fur doesn’t grow back right away Royal had his surgery in January and it still hasn’t completely grown out. This is such fantastic news for your sweet pup.

      After his first surgery it took forever for his hair to grow back lol I can only imagine this one will take longer as they shaved more D; my little bald baby. Charlie has been through two amputations, if they had done it right in the first place he would have never had to go through this again.

    That’s a great update!! Phew! I’m so happy for you!! 😊⭐️Did you get a chance to talk to the vets again regarding the cleanup? Not that it matters right now, just curious 😊
    Manni is a front leg amp as well and his scar is fine with no excess skin. There’s pictures here:
    All the best!!!
