Monday AM Update: Daisy continues her recovery
Good Morning All!
What a different weekend this one was compared to the 3 previous weekends! This weekend was all about relaxing at home! I am happy to say Daisy is now sleeping through the night, no more crying in her sleep (that had been heartbreaking).
We have started her physical rehabilitation by going for a short 10 minute walk last evening. She was happy to be on her leash and walking with her constant companion Penny (our 15 lb mutt). Daisy used to have such muscular thighs and I’m hoping she can restore her previous physique. Dasiy is very much in a recuperation stage of her recovery, sleeping many more hours than previously. I expect that will change once her energy returns.
Daisy continues to eat well. We have changed to slightly larger meals every 4 hours and again Daisy has had no digestive issues. We did take the suggestion of feeding her Kraft macaroni and cheese and she ate it all. I made her lots of bacon as well, thinking both the fat and protein are good for her. The trick of grilling bacon in the streets for her did not bring her home, but grilling bacon for her at home will hopefully keep her home!
We have a follow up appointment with her veterinarian on Friday and hope to have bloodwork done at that time.
I have made thank you flyers that I am posting in strategic areas so that the people who might want to know that Daisy is safe will read them. I have given thank you daisy bouquets to Cindy on Grace Lane who allowed us to put the live trap on her property and to Barb on Simonton Bridge who allowed us to sit for days in her backyard by the pond where I had seen Daisy. Both were pleased to hear of Daisy’s return.
Well wishes have come from near and far. We have heard from folks whose greyhounds have survived similar ordeals and have ultimately thrived and their reassurance are appreciated.
I have attached Daisy’s most recent photo with Chris and already she really does look better! Plus, I had to share her most “unladylike” pose with you as well. She is a nut!
