Long overdue for a posting. Everything here is fine and not so fine. Firstly, my back is much better. Doctor's office called and said she wanted to see me about the results of my x-ray, nothing urgent, thank goodness as I waited 10 days to get in. I'm sure if there was a problem I wouldn't have had to wait. Just as she predicted it is degenerative, but not as bad as my pain would indicate, not to mention how often it happens. It's also weak muscles and weight. I am slowly working on it, baby steps at a time.
Last Tuesday I worked and when I got home Tiger was outside and so happy to see me she came running down to the garage and was jumping all over me. They say things can happen in a split second, well she ran ahead of me and I heard this yelp. She started limping and was obviously in pain, laid on the floor all evening, didn't eat. The next morning I took her to the vet and she has a torn ligament. She had this same problem last year, although I don't know how it happened, and it was the other hind leg. She is improving, can now get up on her outside chair and some mornings I find her sleeping on the couch. She has only come upstairs once since this happened and it was kind of funny, at first I thought it was my Mom banging her cane, only to find Tiger limping up the steps, she went to her usual spot in the computer room and I bent down petted her and asked if she wanted to go to Trout Lake, well the tail started going and she got up and started limping off, turning back to see if I was coming. We went and I parked as close to the off leash area as I could and we just spent our time there. Tiger can't walk too much, but just the fact that she is wanting to get out is a good sign. Today she went swimming, which should
be good exercise for the leg.
However this is how she felt when we got home, after 5 minutes of realizing she couldn't stay in the car she did get out.With Tiger not being able to walk, even when she can she's not as fast as she used to be, I have decided to start going to a track to do "my" walking. Last Monday was my first day and I did 3 laps, 1/4 mile each lap. For some unkown reason I skipped yesterday, oh yeah I was lazy. I did go today, told myself it's only 35-40 minutes out of my day and with the weather being so nice, it's good to be out and about, fresh air and all.
As for stitching I have done some, don't have any pictures to post today. Battery is being charged. I will take some and post them tomorrow, might even have a finish tonight.
