Hi EveryBuddy! Jo here. We have been seriously delinquent about posting this week, its been a busy time. But here is some good news, at 9 weeks post op, I have been having PT, and today got the boot! No more PT and for that I am quite happy. Its been a good time, though. My new knee is within 5 degrees of use of my "good" knee and the surgical scar is even looking pretty good. I have a card for five free sessions at our local health center, and will also do home exercises for several more months. I may even join the Health Center if I am able to do that. Stella, as you know, has been walked by our good friend Lori, and they are both fast movers. So yesterday, I harnassed her for a walk and she makes like she is taking off with Lori, but I stopped her and reminded her she is back with her pokey Mom these days. As usual, she adjusted to that and we moseyed a good bit. I just can't risk falling yet, so I will stay slow for a few more months. The only pain I get at this point comes with thunderstorms and heavy weather! So I am celebrating once again having my time as my own and getting around very well! Thanks for your encouragement!
Hi all you pups and kitties, goats and hamster (lol!) Stella here. I really wish I had a whole lot to write, I have been getting out for some walkies with Lori first and then my Mom, Pokey Petunia and right this minute I am ready to go outside and chew up a marrow bone which just smells wonderful. In a couple of weeks, I think my Mom will be geared to walk a couple of miles to the Lake, like we used to do. Then we will take some nice pictures for you to see. But just for right now, I have a bone waiting for me on the back porch!
Hi Kitties and Pups! Ali Z here. I am going to tell you about a little adventure I did. About a week ago Stella was going out the back door and I sneaked out right behind her! Now I never go outside, but sometimes I just want a little grass to eat. The backyard is fenced in so its not like I can go furry far or anything! My Mom left me out for a while, then she called for us to come in and Stella did, but I stayed out. I watched the lights go out in the house and for me, I spent the whole night OUTSIDE by MYSELF. I loved it and I might do it again sometime too. Meow, Meow Ali Z!
