Hiya it’s me, Chance the most handsome blogging Border Collie in all of Nordern Minnesoda! I have news….about Far Side. She has been having a lot of pain in her hand, arm, elbow and shoulder, night, day, brace, no brace, she was ready to let her carving buddies whack away at it…one is a retired Veterinarian and one a retired Anesthesiologist.
Uffda she did it. She had surgery (with a real surgeon) on her hand yesterday for her carpal tunnel problem.
She mowed the lawn, she weeded the flower bed, she walked with me in the gardens, she did all the laundry and she even mostly cleaned off her desk in preparation before going under the knife.
She deserves to sleep on the couch and watch the weather channel for hours on end.
She says “the pain afterwards certainly cannot be worse than the before …can it?”
Rest assured she is in fine
paws hands, Far Guy and I are taking good care of her…this time she wants Far Guy to read ALL the nurses instructions and not skip the last page…like last time…she got really pissed off, hollered and cried when the last page had a pain prescription to be filled that she read about TWO DAYS after her last surgery… a lot of big fat hairy help it did then. I hope there is no crying this time. I hate the crying part and Far Guy wasn’t too thrilled with it either. If I could read the instructions I would…but dogs cannot read….but I am special so I can blog.
Perhaps if and when Far Guy reads this he will leave a comment and update you all on the her condition. Far Guy you got that??
I doubt that she will ever win the “patient of the year award.”
She might be back tomorrow, if not maybe I will show up again.
