Odin's Journey


Post-Op Apart

I haven’t posted in a few days because my husband and I packed our bags and flew out to Vegas for a concert this weekend. We’re currently killing time at a Starbucks before our red eye flight back home tonight. The anxiety I had about leaving my sweet Odin was beyond dangerous levels. I was worried about him and my mom having to take care of him. There was nothing to worry about, his incision is healed and he was getting around just fine. Sad to say I was more worried about him than my daughter 😂

I separated all of his AM and PM meds into Dixie cups for my mom so she didn’t have to worry about his dosages. Every day we have Face Timed, even while I was by the pool. I’m sure people were wondering what my problem was, asking 100 questions about my dog. Up until last night everything was going well.

Last night Odin tried barreling into the house and took a dive. My mom said he was yelping really really loud and it broke her heart. She lifted him up, helped him to the den and onto his bed. She then stayed up with him for a few hours to make sure he was alright. The woman was on baby duty as well, but instead of getting a few hours of sleep in she decided to sit with him. She told me she spent about 15 minutes just holding him until his whimpering stopped (spoiler alert: he’s a drama queen).

Today I got a picture of him guilt tripping my mom into giving a belly rub. So clearly he’s feeling better after his little tumble. Other than his spill he was eating great, taking his meds with no protest and just soaking up his time with grandma. It was refreshing to not hear my mom threaten to turn Freya into a coat (seriously that dog is the worst, but we just love her so darn much 😍) so apparently shes been good while we’ve been gone, which is unlike her. She loves to up her reign of terror a little bit when we’re out of town. Perhaps she took it down a notch for Odin’s sake, one can hope right?

I can’t wait to see this nutcase in a few hours and rub that belly ❤❤❤❤

    Good for you for trusting your mom and moving forward by going to Vegas. I know it was hard but when you can normalize your life after amputation, it is the BEST medicine there is for Odin. GOOD JOB!

    I’m glad he recovered from his little spill. Eeek! Must have freaked out your mom. She sounds tough like you though, sounds like he got the care and attention he needed.

    Keep up the great work.

    You guys are an adorable couple by the way 🙂
