We just got home from the hospital and are so happy to have our baby back! Heidi's exhausted, but very happy to be back with us and Chico. Chico is being very sweet and gentle with her and he hasn't left her side since she came in the door. Heidi is doing very well considering everything she has been through. She is still having some problems with her bladder control. If that doesn't get better in the next day or so, they want to do another ultrasound. Also, she keeps her head real low to the ground and doesn't seem to look up at all. We're hoping this is from all the meds. This is a pic from tonight. Chico is her bodyguard right now. I informed him that her must bark loudly anytime she seems to need help! So far he's barked nonstop since she came home! :roll:

Good boy Chico. So glad she is home. The meds probably are making her
feel down, but she has gone through alot and it will take some time
for her system to feel happy again. Poor Heidi, just want to cradle her
and make her feel better.
:love7:

YAY!! What a great way to start my day! I bet Chico missed her bunches. I'm sure the meds are making her a little loopy. I know with any of my dogs (in the past) anytime they've been given meds or been sedated it takes a few days to wear off completely.

Postsome more pics when Heidi is feeling up to it!

Glad to hear she is home. I haven't been on here much so I missed all of why she was there. Hope she is doing better soon.

So gald to see her home!!! That really made my day. Keep an eye on her. I don't mean to dampen your spirits but that head drooping really concerns me. I'm sure if it's something to be worried about your vet will let you know. Give her a big ol' hug from me and my gang. (and to Chico too, for being such a good big brother!) :D

Welcome home, Heidi!! If she did suffer some neurological damage, have faith that they DO eventually improve. I've seen animals with SEVERE brain damage, and 2-3 mos later, you can barely tell anything happened. Good luck, I'm sure she will do fine -- she's a fighter!

Oh poor Hiedi! I hope she feels better soon and back to her normal self. I just want to cuddle her and give her a big hug in that picture. Chico seems to be doing a good job watching over her.

thanks, that is encouraging! I just want to snuggle with her all day, but I'm trying to give her some space. I don't think she wants to be bothered right now. It's so hard to leave her alone though!

I know this is totally different, but my ex's cat was hit by a car and had a brain hemorrhage. When he came home from the hospital, he was the SAME way! He would hiss, bite, didn't want to be touched or messed with. Any damage to the brain can affect personality and cause agitation or irritability. After about 2 mos, the cat was just as loving (if not more) than he used to be. He's still blind in one eye, but he learned how to eat, walk, and PEE all over again, and now you'd never know the difference. At one point Andrew had to manually express his bladder, syringe-feed him, and the cat couldn't walk -- kinda walked like a drunk who was spinning in circles. No coordination. Now he runs and plays and does all the things he used to do. It just takes time! Animals (especially young ones) are VERY resilient!
