Meg the Tripawd

Rear leg amputation due to a MCT, still lovin' life

Meg the Tripawd

Not long until surgery day!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

I’ve been counting down the days ever since we booked Meg in for her amputation, and it is getting very close now. 2 more sleeps! Eeeeeekkkk!

On one hand having three weeks between finding out we need the surgery and the surgery date has been great – getting things ready around the house, making sure things are ok with uni/work before taking time off and of course spending lots of time spoiling Meg. On the other hand, it has been a very drawn out process of getting anxious, feeling better after doing research (mainly on tripawds), only to see Meglet being so happy and playful on four legs. I know she won’t mind three legged life once she recovers, but it is hard to be 100% sure of that when all the nerves are at a high! You all understand!

At least Meg has had a lovely last three weeks as a quaddog. Lots of big walks, trips to various parks, a visit to a dog cafe, and exploring lots of new places.

Run Meg, Run!

Run Meg, Run!

Meanwhile, we’ve gotten a lot of things around the house sorted, and gotten nearly everything ticked off the list:

  • Harness
  • Memory foam bed
  • Rugs, rugs & more rugs

The only thing missing is a baby gate, which hopefully won’t even be needed! Anything else? Raised food/water bowls perhaps?

We did have a few set backs during the three weeks, last week Meg woke up with a swollen eyelid, another trip to the vets! Yesterday she woke up with a sore jaw/snout, I think she got too rough with her sister, but that seems to have fixed itself!

So Wednesday is the big day. I’m terrified, but trying to be more dog about it and getting on with things, just as Meg is. Any advice for keeping sane on the big day would be appreciated, I’m sure I’ll be on the forums all day and even add my own topic!

Keep exploring Meg!

Keep exploring Meg!

Good luck Meg, you’ll kick arse at this tripawd thing!
