Monday's with Mayzie: Corbin update

Hi everyone! 
I've decided to take over Corbin's blog on Monday's for my very own day!
Aren't you excited?!
Well, I won't babble on too much about myself today, because I know a lot of you are interested to know how Mr. Corbin is healing up.  So, I'll spend my first day on the blog giving you some insider secrets about the Corbin's recovery.
Corbee was in a lot of pain last week before his surgery.  I never left his side and allowed him to snuggle up against me.  His toe kept getting bigger and bigger and he was limping more and more.  That's when his Doctor decided it was in Corbee's best interest to take his toe.
Foster momma kept us* away during Corbin's first night home.  I didn't like that because Corbin was very upset and cried all night.  But, foster momma said it was best for Corbin to stay as calm as possible.  What did she think I would do?  Well, I showed her.  When I finally got to see Corbin on Saturday, I snuggled up right next to him and never left his side.  I did my best to keep him calm and snoozey.
Corbin is doing well so far.  Today, foster momma and foster dad had to go to the workplace, so they left me alone to supervise Mr. Corbin.  Foster momma didn't think I was experienced enough to deal with a Corbin, apparently he's quite the master of getting out of stuffs and ruining surgeries.  So, she had to put some gear on him to keep him from getting to his paw.  You see, the doctor didn't give Corbee any pain meds aside from what he's already on for his back.  The reason being, Corbin can't use his paw all that much, otherwise the stiches might not hold... but foster momma will tell you more about that when she gives you the details of the surgery.
Well, that's it for me, for now.  I have to get back to Corbin watch.
Hope you enjoyed my Mayzie Monday!
 Oddles of lovin's!
Nurse Mayzie
**Corbin's blondes were visiting last week while Grandpa Jack and Grandma Nancy were on vacation, so Amelia went to visit Emmett for the week.  She likes Emmett and is used to Emmett's house because that's where she stays when the foster people are out of town.  She's staying a little longer so Corbin can heal with a quiet house -not that Amelia makes much noise, but just one less distraction for him.  She'll be back on Thursday!
