Home Sweet Home
Well we have been home for two days now and Santiago has been improving every minute - appearance wise and how he is acting. On Tuesday when we got home, he was so excited to see Roxie and to be able to walk around and see his toys. I was extremely nervous letting him walk and I think Hector and my parents were too. His equilibrium was a little off and he was walking a little crazy. We had to hold both of his hands every where he wanted to go. He would take a few steps forward and then go to the side or backwards. He almost looked drunk haha! This got better and better with time as well. Now he can walk normally but we are still be cautious because we do not want to take any chances with his head. The picture below was taken today - Day 6 Post Op. You can see that he is smiling. The top of his head and forehead are still pretty swollen. His eyes are just a little swollen and his right eye has a little black line under it. His overall coloring isn't back to normal but I am surprised how fast his purple eyelids disappeared.
