Otis came home on morphine and an anti-inflammatory. He's very sad and uncomfortable and whiny. We have limited him to his bed in the living room, where he can see everything that is going on without needing to get up. He's not allowed to go up or down stairs, which means that any time he needs to go outside, Nate carries him.
The vet told us to come back in on Monday, at which time they will be able to determine if it is a sprain or a tear. If it is a tear, then Otis will be scheduled for surgery some time next week to repair the damage. If it is a sprain, then we will need to continue to limit his activity until it is completely healed.
The boys don't quite understand what is going on. While Nate was at the vet with Otis, they did help me make a welcome home sign for Otis, though. Anyway, just wanted to post a short update to let you know what was going on. I'd better get back to assisting with the patient. Nate is downstairs hand feeding Otis his dinner. Now that's true love.
