Growlmy's ouchie on her wrist is still furry bad. It is hot(!), swollen and she can hardly even pick up a mug.
The xrays that were done do not indicate any break...so why this agony still after 2 weeks? I hear Growlmy 'yelp' a lot lately, she seems to forget that she isn't a pup, but my growlmy!
Well she went to see a specialist today, and he feels she is having a reactive inflammation to the original soft tissue injury.
So he said she needs 4 weeks of physiotherapy, to wear a splint and to stay off of work until 6 weeks have past. So that will be almost 2 months before she can go back if she figures in the time she already missed...the doc said she could go back if she would only do work with her left hand...yes, that will be cute, work as a one handed nurse's assistant! Um...not going to happen...so she let the office peeps know this, and she will bring her paper there tomorrow...and set up the PT...in the meantime she hopes she can get by without that paycheck she had been enjoying...
And I and the kitties will keep her amused here, so she won't get too bored...and you know she only needs one hand to pet us or scritch us under our chins...BOL!
Well, if that pesky dog that caused this to happen (She was trying to catch the neighbors dog that had gotten loose...) had done this today, Growlmy would only have gotten a muddy mess, or no fall at all, because it is quite mild here, about 50F. All the 6 or so inches we got the other day is about gone!
What a not winter we are having...
Woofs to all!

Awhhh...you's poor Growlmy!
Aw poor Growlmy! I hope you're feeling better soon!
Oh, deer :( Dis r nod gud, bud habbin' Gwowlmy 'wound more r gonna be pawsum, wike Fweckles??
We love it when she can stay here...maybe I will get some more walkies in, but I guess not if we get more snow, I heard growlmy tell pawppy that she was getting way paranoid about that, even with those ice grabbers that go under the boots/shoes.
So sorry your Growlmy 's wrist is still hurtin'-- just be sure to give her lots and lots of kissise fer me, okay?
Kissies make everythin' better...
So sad to hear your Growlmy's wrist is not feeling good. Hopefully you won't get any anow to make things difficult. POTP to your Growlmy!)
Hope your growlmy's wrist gets to feeling better soon!
so sorry that she is still in pain, but Mom knows how she feels, last yr me and Mom went for a walk and Mom tripped and fell hard on her hand, so thought she broke it too, had xrays nothing, it took months for it to feel better, it's still bothers her if someone shakes her hand and squeezes hard. Hope Growlmy feels better soon
poor Growlmy! Hope that injury starts to heal soon, soft tissue injuries are incredibly painful! And it's too bad she's off work and not getting a paycheck, is there no disability pay available? Give lots of love and kisses to her!
love Rudy and Izzy
Thanks, too Whitley, Finley, Anya, Petey, Rudy and Izzy!
Growlmy starts PT on Monday, in her past experience, that should help a whole lot.
Well, we 'lived' on one paycheck here for many years, so we will get by...the pawlace where Growlmy works didn't offer that type of insurance, but with FMLA legislation she should be able to get the same work back... at least she hopes so!
For now we do not expect any snow...
Poor Ol' Growlmy!! I hope she feels better soon!!! Make sure she works out her good hand with lotsa back scratches!!! bol!
Thanks, Louie! I even have been getting in some walks, because there is no snow or ice right now...and I walk mostly on her left side...
