It’s been stinkin’ hot. I missed my window for planting my shrubs by one week. Now I’ll have to wait until the temps come down a little. 80s would be best, but if I can be assured a week in the low 90s I might take a chance with the more established shrubs.

I got the word from Nana’s regular vet that her other knee is pretty much shot. I expected that, but I wanted an expert’s opinion. So now it’s another surgery for her. I feel so bad about that. I wish I could spare her the surgery.

That was the most heartbroken dog I’d ever seen when I took her for her first surgery. She didn’t want to leave me and it was all I could do to let her go. She probably thought I was abandoning her. If only she knew how much it tore me apart.

I should know more after Wednesday.

    Maria know that look and the feeling well. When we had to leave our two cats overnight after getting them fixed when they each turned 6 months old was traumatic for all of us. The female was the worst next day when picked up because you could hear her growling through the entire vet clinic and when home she gave us looks that could kill if they had the ability. Two years later our Tom has his turn and since he was such a “Momma’s boy” leaving my baby overnight was actual torture.

    I hope this surgery is Nana’s last and that her recovery goes as well or better than last time.

    Stay cool!

    It has been very hot lately. Yesterday, I attended a Battle of the Food Trucks to support a friend and I’m pretty sure I could have lathered myself in butter and been a baked Angela Special in less than five minutes.

    I am sorry to hear that Nana will have to have surgery again. You’ve all done so wonderul in going through the recuperation process with this first one. The second one should be an improved process, or at least that is my hope since you’ve got the experience from the first one.

    Hugs to you all!!

    • Angela: Oh, that rehab! A whole month of walking her on a sling and not letting her bad leg touch the ground.

      The first week is the most critical. She was so patient despite all the bandages, pins, and mommy never letting her walk. 🙂
