Thanks all, I guess he is doing as well as he is suppose to be. Last night was rough. The first night he slept in his crate with it closed without a peep all night. Last night he whined off and on all night. He had had all his meds, but I gave him another pain pill at 4:30. I really think though that he just wanted on the bed with me. I guess the first night he was just too out of it to care. Last night he wanted out of the crate. I just got the new crates with the door on them so I haven't had a chance to get them trained to them yet. Other than that, he had a big poop this morning which I was glad of. It had been 48 hrs since his last one. That may also be what was bothering him last night. I had ordered an inflatable neck pillow for him instead of using the hard plastic kind. Well, wouldn't you know, it must have a hole in it. It won't hold air. So I guess I will order something else and see if they will take this one back. He is not licking constantly, but definitely does mess with it some. Anyway, I guess we will make it - but not the most fun we have ever had.
