I am lifeguard at our pool. The grandkids come over to swim and I watch them in the pool at all times. If they are swimming I run back and forth along the side of the pool so that I can watch them. When they bring friends with them I really do a lot of running. On Tuesday they came over with a bunch of friends and I ran back and forth the whole time they were there. That night I was tired and rested like I normally do.
The next day I could barely walk. I would not let mom look at my right paw, which I kept licking. I also had no interest in eating or even taking water. Mom took me to the vet and the vet gave me pain pills and an anti-inflammatory pill to take. She felt my leg and paw and did not think I had anything broken and had not hurt the pads on my paw, so she wanted to try this first. If it did not work I would have to be sedated to have x-rays taken.
I am doing better. I was walking better on Thursday and today is even better.
Mom says I am not to go out anymore and watch the kids. She said I am overdoing it and I can only go out if the grandkids are there but not when they have friends because I work too hard then. I wonder if this means I will be getting a cut in pay now!
Bailey, it's highly possible that you slipped on the wet surface while running along the pool thus twisted something. I hope with a few days rest you will be back to your normal self and what ever you do, DON"T let the employers cut your pay or cookie allowance because you were hurt on the job so all pay and treats should still be awarded. If not, contact Finley or Whitley and see about taking the employers to court for lost wages and benefits.
So glad you are doing better Bailey! You just overworked yourself trying to watch all those kids at once! But no cut in pay because you got hurt on the job & workers comp should kick in with lots of treat payments!
Keep getting better!
