We decided to forego our anniversary dinner. It seemed silly to indulge when the bill for Nana turned out to be so much more expensive. But that was fine. We won’t miss it.
This week is all about easy-to-make comfort food that comes with its own leftovers. I am exhausted looking after Nana. I have to lift her with a sling any time she gets up or tries to walk–and she’s a heavy dog! Her kidneys seem to be functioning fine, but she’s yet to have a bowel movement which is beginning to bother me. Another visit to the vet tomorrow if I don’t see improvement in this area.
The cone of shame is uncomfortable for her and she kind of shuts down when it’s on. We’ve elected to take it off but only when we’re sitting right next to her to make sure she doesn’t touch the incision. Strangely enough, she’s left it alone without any intercession from us. At night, we put the cone back on. We have not left her alone since we got her back. Poor Iko seems content with his lot in life, but I try to make it up to him by taking him for walks.
For now I’m living on too little sleep and aching muscles. I’m sure next week will be better.
