Billy’s first night at home turned out to be a rough one. There was not a lot of sleeping and going up and down the stairs turned out to be much more difficult than the original trip made it seem. All three of us were very concerned about the next couple of weeks here at home.
Then, around 6AM, the situation changed for the better. Chipper McNugget graciously booked us a ground floor room at a nearby hotel (we figured Billy could fend for himself by now, and Maggie and I really needed some sleep).
Just kidding, the hotel room was for all of us! And let me tell you it is wonderful! Billy does not have to fight the stairs every time he wants to relieve himself, and we do not have to worry about hurting him all the time when we take him down either. Hopefully the sleeping situation will improve as well.
Billy and I spent most of the day together at the hotel. He wanted to watch HBO so we did that almost all day. I noticed that he was beginning to feel a little bit better, and by the time Maggie got back here, he was pretty much wagging his tail constantly just like he did before he got bone cancer. It made us all very happy to see him feeling better, especially two days after his leg was amputated.
Can’t wait to see how he is doing tomorrow!
