We've made it through the first 48 hours.
Thus far Gaines has adjusted pretty well to life at home. Before we brought him home, my biggest concern was that he would require extra oxygen once he was in our house. I guess my thought process was that he was doing so well in the hospital...a sterile environment. Our house is not a sterile environment. How could it be with a dog and a two year old little boy? I figured the new environment might cause him to require more than 1 liter of flow. Fortunately he is doing great. His breathing has actually been really good.
The only concern we have had since we brought Gaines home are spit ups. He spits up a lot. Our doctors assure us that his frequent spit ups aren't anything for concern. However, it does mean that we frequently clean up after him.
Again, so far, so good. Hopefully we will have more time to update later.
