Eight Weeks Later

Eight weeks ago today, this is where we were at:
But now check out where we’re at!
And eight weeks post-op is the milestone we’ve definitely all been waiting for (especially Moses, I imagine), because it means we can begin easing into a walking routine!
So Moses and I went out this afternoon for his first walk in eight weeks.
For the next two weeks, we’ll start out with two 5 minute walks daily, and once those two weeks are up, we can slowly start to increase time based on his progress.
And even though five minutes is ridiculously short, it’s still better than nothing, and it was great to get back out with the big guy.
Was going through surgery expensive and stressful? Yes. But it was worth it.
And unlike our short pre-opt walks, there was no tripping or scraped knuckles. He may be a bit clumsy still, but the improvement has been great to see.
I even made a short video to commemorate the first walk back:
What a good day.
