No Place Like Home for Hamlet

This morning I picked up a very woozy and drugged-up Hamlet.  Right now he's not really able to stand on his own, and I'm hoping this will pass in a day or so.  Until then, it's lots of rest and medication.  I'm glad that its worked out that I'm off of work on Monday and will be able to stay home with him.  The past 4 days have been really busy, and I look forward to having a day to relax, read blogs and take care of 'the patient.' 

Many thanks for your continued prayers, good karma and healing energy you're sending Hamlet's way!

  2. Oh that poor boy. That's a major incision. Will it affect the use of his leg? We're hoping that after a few days of rest and love, he's able to move around and enjoy his surroundings again. How are you doing? I know how stressful this is for you.

  18. Kim,
    I'm so glad Hamlet is home with you to take care of him.
    That's one nasty looking scar but it really looks like the tumor has been removed and he doesn't seem to have any puffiness around the skin.
    Maybe it's just the picture but I really think Hamlet looks very good for the type of surgery he underwent.
    Please give him a big kiss right on the boo boo. Always works for adults why not dogies too.
    Take care of your special patient nurse Kim.

  22. Poor Hamlet! I'm just getting caught up on everything. I'm so sorry but glad you are back home. I will continue to pray for you.

  23. I just read your recent posts about Hamlet's journey. That looks like a very large incision, so I imagine they got a lot of the tumor out. I will pray for his recovery. And I know that having made the decision and gone ahead with the surgery must have lifted a burden from your mind too. He is sooo adorable, that old boy. And tough too, I think.--Inger

  27. Home is always best, especially when surrounded by those who love you. Poor baby, he does look a little dopey, but that's probably a good thing. Still sending up good wishes. Enjoy your day as a nurse tomorrow.

  30. Isn't it terrifying, seeing him so weak and helpless? I remember bringing my dalmatian home after surgery and he was so "lifeless". It was frightening. I slept on the floor with him for the first 24 hours! But look at the love and trust and awareness in Hamlet's eyes. He knows he's home and safe.
