Well, it looks like Momma is most likely gonna need surgery on her foot, pups. She's ALL messed up. Her foot hurts real bad, and she went to her first therapy session today. The guy told her one of her peppermints (Note from Momma: I believe Fizzy means LIGAMENTS) is hanging on by a thread, and he's not sure therapy will help. He's gonna try real hard to make it better, but if she doesn't get it fixed, she runs the risk of getting arthur-itis (*sigh* arthritis) in her hip and knee when she gets to be SUPER old. Even older than she is now! That's OLD! (HEY! Remember who feeds you, buddy....)
Momma thinks she's gonna get a second opinion after her next vet appointment in September. She was gonna wait until June to have surgery if she needs it, but her boss lady yelled at her and said if she has to have it done, to just do it and not worry about school. We'll see what happens. It's gonna suck cause we only have a bathroom on the second floor, and Momma won't be able to move much for at least a month. Poor Momma...she says Daddy's gonna destroy the house if she can't walk BOL!

As we age, we need to take preemptive measures when needed.
Also after you recover you can make Daddy clean up the mess he made over the month. BOL
I know all about that bathroom and wrecking the den junk, too...well, at least I saw growlmy feeling those things...she was in Grrr mode then, BOL!
(And recently we had 6 adults here and there is only one Bathroom, no matter where its located...it is not fun, BOL!)
Maybe a potty chair in a quiet place beside the couch?
Or teach your Daddy to carry your Momma up to the 2nd floor...well maybe not...
My pawppy would use the steps by sitting on them and using his arms to do the walking, imagine seeing your Momma trying that!
Fizzy, you can teach your momma to use the grass or the bushes like you do!...what growlmy?...OK I will stop...
Ok, seriously, growlmy says that the sooner she gets it fixed...the sooner she can feel a lot better, and get back to normal. Its true, just ask my pawppy...he had knee surgery after a fall, and of course he had no hesitation to have his hip fixed too, and he is GLAD he did...so much easier to get around now, and no pain either.
Sending tons of POTP and good wishes...and I can lick the ouchie ankle too,, if she wants, but I think I will let you do that, Fizzy...
Oh this isn't good news. Maybe your momma should have the surgery done now before Detroit workers are on Obamacare, I'm just saying...
Yikes! Dat do not sound like any fun.
oh noes...this isn't good, looks like Nurse Fizzy will be on duty soon.
Oh No! This sounds a lot like what is goin on with Jelly's Mommy. She is in the hospital furever!
Tell your Momma to take care of the owie foot Now, don't wait 'til it's too late.
Sending lots of POTP for your momma!
Oh, gud gwief. Pardon my wanguage, bud dis summer r SUCKIN' weal bad.
My Momma sez pwebentitibe stuffs r bedder dan 'mergencee surgurwy. Pweeze tell yur Momma tu deal wif it ASAP! My Momma sed so!!
BOLBOL, Fweckles!! Yu r cwackin' me up here, dood!
Mum says she should get the second opinion now not in September. Okay, I said it can I bark now? Geez the peeps are tough around here. But really if you are gonna need the vet to fix it you might as well get it done now. My first Mom has had multiple surgeries on her knees and ankle (klutzy is what I think). It is tough to get around but she did master crutches. The sitting to go up & down the steps only works if you can move your knee so you would have to check that out. Have your Daddy move the fridge upstairs and the microwave and anything else Mommy might need. But you, Fizzy will have to learn to let your self out the door.
POTP for your Mommy!
Sending your mom lots of POTP from us too! The sooner she gets it done the sooner she'll be all better and back to school where she's needed!
Thanks, pups. Momma says she's gonna wait cause her appointment is September 4 and that's not that far away. She starts back on Monday for a 2 week summer camp with the kids, so she figures THAT will let her know how painful it's gonna feel lol. Grammy has a porta potty thing that Momma can keep downstairs so she doesn't have to do the stairs so much. IF she has surgery. *sigh* She's a stubborn one, pups.
But Fizz, what if she hurts her tootsie worser than it is now while she is at the summer camp. And what if she don't even know it is hurt worser? Ya know?
Then we will be able to say "told you so".
Well, Zoester, it kinda doesn't matter cause insurance won't pay for a surgery unless she does therapy first, and the vet wrote her subscription (PERscription to last all the way up until her next vet appointment in September, so she can't do anything about it yet anyhow. And she's working the camp cause she gets paid a lot of extra money to do it, and she figures if she's gonna miss so much work she might as well earn as much extra money as possible while she can!
Sure hope your Momma feels better soon-- dat surgery stuff sure don't sound like fun........
Sending hugs and best wishes to your mommy!!
