Aruba's home !!!

Another thanks for your continued concern for Aruba... your thoughts and prayers have meant so much!

Aruba was released from the hospital last night .... we're so happy to have our precious angel back home with us !!! And she seemed pretty happy on the car ride home.

She'll need some recovery time; the stroke left her with vertigo (she's taking meds for that--- between hers and Buddy's meds, I'm running a doggy pharmacy here! LOL). The stroke also left her with a weakened left side. :-( To strengthen her and prevent muscle atrophy, we'll be doing some basic range-of-motion physical therapy with her here at home. After she goes back to the neurologist for a follow-up in a couple of weeks, she might need more advanced physical therapy.

For now tho, we're all just so tired after a trying week! She and Buddy snuggled-up and fell asleep together, so sweet! He missed her.

Come back soon... as we get settled down here, I plan to blog our last few days spent in Costa Rica. We have some amazing experiences to share!
