One last post-op checkup!

This morning I went to see the surgeon for my final post-op check.
My knee feels GREAT! It's not slipping at all and I'm using it more and more. Now I get to do even more like no more ramp on the front steps. There are only 3 but I was still using a ramp until today!
And I can play ball for short intervals. Each day a little more and if everything goes well then I will be able to go upstairs in 2 weeks!
That will only be for limited trips depending on how I do.
The doc says I should be totally off restrictions in 4 weeks! Woohoo!

I am back up to 141 pounds. Doc said it wouldn't hurt to lose a bit because of my knee problems. He said 130 but mom say's that is TOO thin for my breed. Mom says we will shoot for 135 and re-evaluate.

We arrived home to find that we couldn't drive down our road! The utility guys were there trimming trees. 2 huge trucks blocked the road! Dad parked the car and we walked the 1/10 mile past the big trucks to our house. Mom was very proud of how well I did walking past strangers and all that unfamiliar machinery.

Well, off to take a nap now. All this activity wore me out.

Love,
Sunny
