I know my pals have been following my recovery from surgery.
I'm here MYSELF to report with my own PAWS! Can you believe it?
1st. I must ask that our pals say a prayer for Precious. A
couple nights ago,Gpa went to put her in the sunroom for the
night. She jumped out of his arms! He was on the landing.
It was a HUGE JUMP and she landed hard! She started with
limping and Gma thought it was her hip??? Last couple days,
she has chosen odd places to lay. Gma noticed,she seems to
be having trouble getting up and down. Finding a comfortable
spot to lay. Is it her back? A strain? A pinched nerve?
A herniated disc?
She isn't eating like she normally does. She has a HUGE
appetite. She is just picking a little. She is drinking.
She is going potty in her box but not the normal amount.
She is letting Gma pick her up so she doesn't jump off
loveseat. While she is a senior,she naps alot,she just
isn't herself. No crying but appears like there is some
Gpa was going to town,Gma sent him to the Vet for
some pain medicine for a kitty. They can't take what
they give pups. Gma told Gpa, if she wasn't perked up
by Monday. Gma would take her to the Vet. The Fur Doc,
told Gpa...he really didn't know what to do for her?
Basically they are Livestock Docs and not specialized
Well, we know they don't have the pricey equipment
that the small animal Vets have. Angel Foxie had to
go to a specialist all the time. Gma said, well we
have 2 places where she has been, many times. They are
both 60 miles away. If we can find out, what exactly
is wrong, we can probably fix it. ????
I Feel BAD for her...She did tease me, while I was not
feeling so good,but I forgive her. I think, maybe there
is something to this TOO much JUMPING business????? If
you could just say a prayer for her, I'd be really very
As Grandma's Dad, he is finally home. He is stable,
not so weak now, some issues have been handled. He's
been home 2 days now. So far, doing better. We are
praying things are back on the right track for him.
Little ME.... I'm NO LONGER locked in the kitchen.
Gma took the laundry baskets off the loveseat today.
I'm jumping into the chairs. Using my bedroom Pet
stairs on the big loveseat. The smaller one, she
will let me jump on. I've stayed on Gma's heels
almost all day! (Just because I could!) Gma and I
are still sleeping in the kitchen. She doesn't want
me to wakeup during the night,not use the pet stairs
and jump off her extra high pillow-top to go potty.
She says, I'd be on the floor before either of them
knew that I was going to do it!
I'm playing,still taking the Rimadyl so I won't scratch.
I'm being very a good girl! I'm not playing as
rough at I usually do....Their Idea not mine!
Pawsome to go from a little living room playtime to
most of my Freedom restored...NO CAVE! It's all sealed
up...Whole different story for another time....

Sorry-that we couldn't correct our diary entry. On old puter now. Out of the blue,mouse on new puter wouldn't respond at dogster. After zooming around and seeing what was up....
Ended up disconnecting it and reconnecting. Don't know right now, as that puter is doing a full backup for us. No trouble at any other place. We wrote letters on puter this afternoon and that was o.k.
our puter would respond to everything but dogster. anyone else have this trouble? we had the past couple days,real slow response at dogster. dumped our history and cache....then it was better.
has also been sending double pressies but no biggy our pals deserve them all.....we will try and go in later and change the mistakes.
ty for your understanding.... Precious pain med. must be helping. she ate and is on Gpa's lap resting and ear rubs.... he feels so BAD!
BUUURRRRRRRRRRRRR it is now -5 raw temp....I'm looking for a blankie!Spring please come EARLY!!!!!!!!
aww...we sure hope that Precious feels better soon and glad that you have more freedom to get around now
We hope Precious is feeling better soon. Ouch!! Glad you're feeling better, but don't be trying to do too much too soon, ok?
Take it easy little one, you don't want to re-injure yourself all over again. Sending "feel better" wishes to precious. Hope she feels back to herself real soon. :)
Poor Precious, I sure hope she starts to feel better. Since you don't know what is wronge with her, why not put her in a nice roomy crate with something really nice to sleep on such as a big piece of memory foam that would allow her to lay comfortably undisturbed. Only let Precious out to use the potty and eat, all other times make her stay in the crate. When Puffy hurt his spine one of the things momma was instructed to do for him was to crate him for two weeks and not let him move around. Maybe it would help Precious.
Lotsa prayers on the way for Precious... our Jezebel is really old-- almost 20! She surprises Momma now and then by jumping up somewhere Momma thought she couldn't anymore... gotta keep 'em guessin'!
Take good care of yourself, Mazy and hope ya heals soon, too...
And glad to hear your Momma's Daddy is back home!
Hope Precious feels better! Glad you're outta da kitchen.
ty pals....I'm not being a zippy as normal, but do Great!
This experience has reigned in my protective barking and my jumping. Today is 10 days on the surgery. I suppose in the next week the stitches will dissolve.
The pain medicine helped Precious,she ate supper,did lap time on Gpa. She isn't jumping around. Her potty business seems normal now. She slept last night on Angel Baby's big pillow bed. She stayed there all night. Gma checked her at 2 a.m.
When she got up this morning she was a little stiff to start with. A little limp in the back left leg. We think it is a strain. The pain medicine is for 3 days. 1 per 24 hrs. Think she will be fine with just resting it and not jumping. She isn't a big jumper....Don't know what made her leap out of Gpa's arms???I think, maybe she wanted to sleep with me on that big fat queen bed in the kitchen? Her hair close to Gma's face,makes Gma sneeze. Doesn't bother Gma as long as she isn't right in her face...
Gma went to bed and 9 and made me go too...She was pooped! She slept like a rock until 2..then laid awake for 2+ hrs. Don't know if she gained anything???? Her body is still screaming from the cold wknd. It will settle as the weather moves east...
