Thanks for the well wishes; Hope appreciates them.
So a positive update: She's really bounced back to her happy, pushy, want-to-play all the time self; which is a problem we're happy to deal with (because she NEEDS to stay CALM for 2 more weeks!). I've really noticed she's gotten that sparkle back in her eye that was dulled a bit due to, I'm sure, the pain of surgery & loosing a leg. She's been doing quite well, though she and Cody remain separated because both of them want to PLAY!!! and we are NOT having another popped stitch around here! There's still a little seepage on the far end of her wound where she can still move her shoulder, but nothing we're too worried about - just keeping an eye on it to ensure the staple the vet put in holds given she already popped that particular stitch once.
Here's a pic of her incision; you can see the staple on the left side of the photo; to give you a reference point, that is closes to her tail-end. The front of her wound, as you can see, is scabbed over nicely and healing. We're keeping a t-shirt on her when out of the crate to ensure no debris/dirt/whatever gets into the wound.
And here's a photo from this morning while I was getting breakfast; you can see her personality has really returned:
She really is such a sweet little girl and will make somebody a great companion when it gets to that point - yeah, the plan is to still let her go so we can help more... at least that's the current plan
