My Girl Is Home

Just a quick post to thank everyone for the beautiful comments, emails and healing thoughts you sent to Willow and our family. It's amazing to have the support of so many of you out there in the blog world.

We were able to take Willow out of the ICU and bring her home last night.  Our hope is that she will be able to rest much more comfortably in the familiar surroundings of our apartment.  Unfortunately we still have a long road ahead, as her mobility is quite limited and she is having a hard time walking without support for her hind legs.  We are hopeful that this will improve, but are not really sure what the future holds.  For now, I am just going to take care of her, love her and enjoy each moment with her.  As I write this post, I am cuddled up next to her while she sleeps.

Here is one more photo from our afternoon pre-surgery earlier this week.  If you missed my first post about this and don't know what the heck I am talking about, go here.


Thanks again to you all, it means so much to us.  Woof.

Willow, Willow, Willow....I love this shot of your sweet girl. I know the place you're in...not easy. Amazing how much our pets do for us, mean to us, and live in our hearts.
I'm glad to know surgery was successful. Pets are incredibly resilient. I bet she will surprise you. Enjoy each moment-it is all you can do.
I am sending virtual K-9 hugs and an extra pat and scratch under the chin for Willow...and virtual hugs to you too.

Lots and lots of hugs to you and Willow. I'm glad you got to bring her home. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a good recovery. Doggies are wonderfully, amazingly resilient creatures, and I'm sure Willow is incredibly happy just to have your love and comfort, regardless of what's going on in her little body.

I'm so glad to hear Willow is back home with you ... I hope she gets better and feels more herself with each and every day.

As the owner of beautiful dogs I know just how you feel when faced with difficult times at the Vet's office. It's hard to see a much-loved member of your family feeling unwell. I'll keep you and Willow in my thoughts as she recovers.
