I just had major knee surgery....Mom said I had to have it so I could continue to run and play. If I didn't I'd start hurting in my joint and eventually not be able to walk.
So..Okay she did it so I'd be good for a long, long time, BUT this really sucks! I can't walk without her putting a towel under my belly every single time! Doc Cook says I have to walk like that for at least 4 wks, but it takes about 10 wks to heal. Soooo, no running, jumping, pool, no NOTHING. Man does he know how to take the fun outta summer!
He gave Mom all these pills for me to take and they make me drunk! I'm tellin ya once them things kick in I can't even hold my head up! WHOA! And, believe me I try to fight it!
I think I'm wearing Mom out because sometimes I think I can just get up and go once the drugs wear off and she's constantly having to jump up and get me! Keeps her on her toes!
Just curious have you ever tried to pee or POOP with someone hoovering over you at your back door (if ya know what I mean) not to mention holding a towel under you? Well I HAVE and let me just say it's not fun or easy.....took me 6 days to finally go #2 and I just had to accept that Mom was going to be right there.....I didn't have much choice in the matter since she's been giving me pumpkin to help with that! Sneaky trick the Doc told her to do! HMMPH
In all though Mom says I've been a really good boy and Doc Cook ROCKS! Those doctors in Charleston really know their stuff and they are really nice!
I'm only a week into recovery, but Doc says my prog...prog whatever the surgery went well and I should recovery 100%!
Just wanted everyone to know why I haven't been around lately, but I'll try to get back into things ASAP!
Till then Rottie hugs to all,
