Taking Care of Daddy

Well pups, dad has finally had his knee surgery. Mom took him to the hospital this morning. I was NOT allowed to go. That's ok, I had to rest up to take care of dad when they got home, because mom is a terrible nurse.

When mom and dad got back from the hospital, mom said SHE needed to lay down for maybe a half an hour. Three hours later mom got up. Fortunately I was there to take care of dad. He just rested as well.

Then after mom got up, she left the house. She went to pick up perscriptions and get dinner and DO THE LAUNDRY! leaving me to take care of dad once again. Dad was up and could move around a bit. He took some medicine and played on the computer while I made sure he kept petting me to keep his blood pressure down.

Finally, mom came home and made us a delicious dinner of chix and microwaved mashed potatoes. And as a reward she took me for a walk.

Dad, by the way, is doing fine. His knee is a little swollen(mom left the ice bag out and forgot to make ice.) but he can get around ok and he says he can tell a difference already. So even with mom's bad nursing care, dad is recovering.
