Wrapping up the Weekend
We are still watching LadyBug closely as she is still clearly not back to her normal self. She is still being picked up to go up and down stairs. She is being carried when she has to go outside. As much as she wants to run and play...we just cannot let her do that. Every single time she even tries to play....just a little...she starts not using the leg again.
She's still on the metacam once per day and I am trying the heating pad. My friend suggested a heated, vibrating foot bath. I haven't yet tried that because even with the heating pad...she doesn't seem quite comfortable. She is still a little bit skittish about "strange" things. So...I am trying to massage by hand and make sure she stays ON the bed at night. The biggest challenge is that she loves to follow me everywhere, so I am having to stay PUT more than I'd like to...in other words...laundry is piling up...things that should be getting done...aren't.
LadyBug's health is more important to me...so we will stay huddled close while she is recuperating.
Tonight we enjoyed the Golden Globes Awards on tv in front of the fireplace...both her and Chloe love that!
Hope you had a great weekend!! It is eight degrees right now...quite frigid!!
