We made it back home this afternoon! Wow, it was nice to finally get back! Jeremy is doing great. The doctors were right, this surgery has been much easier than his first one. He is still hurting really bad and I worry that he is going to over do it, because he hates to have to rely on someone to do things for him. The doctors told us that this surgery should not cause a flare-up of his pancreatitis, and so far he hasn't had any problems! We spent a couple of days in Gainesville before coming back home, to give Jeremy more time to recover before riding in the car that long. We are so blessed, we had family there who pampered us and helped us in so many ways. We could definitely feel all of the prayers from our friends and family. Maggie was wonderful while we were there, but I think she was very happy to be home and able to sleep in her bed again. Taylor kept Cole while we were gone and I think he and Lexie wore Cole out. As soon as we put his kennel back together, Cole went in and slept (and has stayed in there all night).
We really appreciate all of the emails, comments and phone calls checking on us. Hopefully it won't take us too long to get back in the swing of things.
