Simon's week 1 recovery is routine:
He gets pain medication twice a day.
He gets anti-inflammatory medication once per day.
He sleeps - a lot - day and night.
He eats twice a day in limited amounts because he's putting on weight due to inactivity.
He's on a leash if he's outdoors.
He wears the e-collar most of the time - if we take it off, he immediately starts licking the sutures.
He wants to run with Alvin, but that's a no-no.
He has to be carried up and down stairs, and he's no light weight.
