April’s when all my shots are due. But until then, I’m free! No more staples in me, no more being “threatened” with being a “cone head”!! AND I CAN GO VISITING AGAIN!! AROOOO!! as my buddy Little Buddy would say!
Mom had a chance to look at the x-rays they took and I’m in better shape than they thought, bone-wise. What they thought was a slipped disk is not– it’s just got some extra calcification so it doesn’t want to bend or move as easily as the surrounding vertebrae but it’s nothing Mom needs to really keep an eye on. My hips look great, and there is just a slight film of the beginnings of arthritis in my shoulder but the vet says Metacam as needed should do the trick for quite some time to come. I’m going to try to NOT need that stuff– it tastes nasty! BOL
Mom and I are both on diets now. I’m not allowed to tell you how much weight she needs to lose but I need to lose 12-15 pounds. I know going back to visiting will help– all that walking’s gotta be good for the both of us– we’ve had a pretty sedentary month this past month!
Thanks to all who sent words of encouragement and thoughts of healing– all were geatly appreciated. (And if I missed answering any posts/e-mails… sorry…)
