Not a whimper of pain since starting on the Gabapentin 300mg the evening of day 7! (Velveeta worked like a charm for the second evening in a row – what a relief!) One thing we just thought about today – it sounds like some dogs have experienced leaking and oozing from their incision sites. Lucky’s incision was closed with sutures (versus staples) and he has experienced no leaking at all! The incision looks great, and the sutures are scheduled to come out on day 14 (when he goes in for his first chemo treatment). He went out for a couple of short walks today which he really seemed to enjoy, and went up the stairs (12 steps) to the second floor tonight without any trouble! Lucky is still sleeping a fair amount and not quite back to his happy-go-lucky personality, but we are thankful he is now comfortable and making progress each day. It is so helpful and reassuring to read through everyone’s experiences! Thank you to everyone!
