Charlie’s Post-Op Recovery – Day 16 11

Today we are now 16 days post-op for Charlie and he’s doing fabulous.  He honestly feels like he could probably run a marathon, I’m sure (my opinion as a crazy pet-parent).  He’s got spunk and this renewed energy.  But, so far he’s listening to his limits i.e. Mommy yelling.  He now has his stitches out (yesterday) and he’s very happy about that.  He spent one more night in the cone and this morning, he is cone-FREE.  Pet parents reading know that this is such a triumphant moment.  Cone-wearing is always such a shitty thing, for both the dog and the […]

Canada Day Festival

Thursday Thoughts & #ThrowbackThursday 4

It’s Thursday today, but it doesn’t feel like a Thursday because we had a statutory holiday yesterday (Canada Day) and so today, it feels like it should be the beginning of a work week but alas, thank god it is not.  Only today and tomorrow until the glorious weekend.  I live for weekends, don’t you kids?  Yesterday, we didn’t end up visiting Jeff’s Mom in the rehab facility.  She was placed in isolation due to being sick so hopefully she’ll be feeling a bit better come the weekend and we can perhaps visit her on Saturday or Sunday afternoon.  Instead, […]

Update on Charlie – Post Op 16

So Jeff and my Mom went to meet the orthopedic surgeon last Thursday morning, which was the next step before his surgery was to be scheduled.  The surgeon agreed with the other Veterinarian, that Charlie indeed had what appeared to be a torn cruciate ligament.  Not only that, it was discussed that because there was a possibility that his patella, or knee cap, was luxating, or shifting ever so slightly, they might have to create a deeper groove for the cap to sit in, so it would no longer free-float, so to speak.  The doctor also said that if the […]

Charlie’s Diagnosis 18

This will be  the beginning of a long journey ahead, for us, for Charlie and I want to try and capture as much detail as I remember it, so I can look back months from now and see the progress. Back in January, Charlie was playing with his brother like he normally does and I guess he happened to move a bit differently this time, but we noticed him limping a lot and we just chalked it up to him spraining his ankle or pulling something.  Since then, the limp has been less prominent but it’s been quite clear that […]
