greetings from alabama.

Greetings from Alabama!

I am overjoyed to report that we just got a fantastic call from our surgeon to let us know that our little guy is awake and doing great! She said the surgery went exactly as she had hoped. 

We were so nervous when we left him at the hospital this morning. Our surgeon is wonderful and was so helpful to us, but she had quite a few concerns for things that could have gone wrong during surgery. Tucker was the last of three dogs to be operated on today and they saved him for last because of how tricky his surgery was going to be. We had lots of reasons to be concerned but everything went perfectly!

We had hoped that we would be able to visit him tonight but our surgeon wants him to rest as much as he can. We'll be visiting him first thing in the morning and hopefully taking him home right after that. We don't mind letting him sleep and regain his energy before we cover him with hugs tomorrow!

Thank you all so much for the prayers! The surgeon said there were lots of prayers going up for Tucker within that surgery room and I know there were many more among our friends and family. We are so appreciative and thankful for every single one!

We are off for an evening of celebrating in Birmingham!
