Yes, and grimaces too, like when the PT gal challenged pawppy to do some things he could do, but OMC, it was hard...
Pawppy did a lot of walking using a quad cane, graduating from constant use of the walker. He walked all the way around the whole building with that device. Then he grinned and said it would be great to use as a weapon(!) when we try to get under his feet...what?!!
He got into the bathtub, not to have a wash, but to try & see how that would go when he gets home.
He practiced some more stairs and did some strange exercises on a squishy sponge...to work on balance he was told...and to make some other muscles and tendons get stronger, too.

He had a big grin on his face when the PT said how awesome he was! We, of course, agree!
Then he got to finally sit down and get time to himself...to watch the football game: Go Blue!!

 

Hard Work

Pawppy is doing a lot of hard work...he walked up and down the corridors, did a lot of different exercises, and even got to work at using some stairs.

He might come home even before the scheduled Oct 10th date!
Yeah, Pawppy! Go, Pawppy!

Go Tigers, too!

Those red birds won a spot, and now we want to watch & see if the orange birds might have a chance...those baseball games are hard work, too! Its a tie right now...ooh, tense! Suspense!

 

'Rehomed'

Pawppy has a new home...temporarily, BOL!

He was discharged from the hospital and transferred to the rehab hospital for a few days.

He is getting stronger evfurry day...and more bored, too.

We can't wait for him to come home.

When Meowmy gets home we can smell pawppy on the laundry she brings in, but then we wonder where the man is that usually is inside those clothes...sigh...we shall go into zooming mode when he comes back! Oh, and we will be able to join him in his bed...hooray!

 

Productive Day - Update Fur October Third

October 3rd 2012 8:33 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

Here is the update on Pawppy for today:

Meowmy has been spending long hours at the hospital with Pawppy.
Today he was so much better already.
Making treks with the walker to the hallway, to the chair and to the potty...the place where he, Meowmy and the nurses all rejoiced in his production...MOL! (Those were his own words, we are not kidding!!)

Well, he agreed to go to the rehab hospital for a week or so to be more independently mobile and stronger. So tomorrow the plan is to be 're-homed' there.
Meowmy was glad with this, because she felt so scared to have him home so early, needing all that help. No one else here to help, it is daunting...he will have about 3 hours of therapy each day, and then upon discharge from there he will go to out patient PT 2 - 3 times a week for several weeks.
Meowmy will of course be his chauffeur or is it chaufesse?
She sure will be looking forward to the emergence of an 'new' Pawppy...thank the Lord that his level of pain is not that bad by now, and that he even told peeps that he can tell that the damaged hip is not there anymore to cause that kind of discomfort.

Patience will be learned by this, and more of the same for Meowmy!

We have noticed that that camera box is a lot less visible lately...so we don't think any new pics will be forthcoming...that does not make us sad at all, MOL!!

Well, Meowmy has to get ready fur another busy day tomorrow...nighty-night!

 

Update #3 Twentyfour Hours Post-Op

October 2nd 2012 2:33 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ]

Well, today is 24 hours post-op and counting.
The PT peeps came in early this morning and tried to get Pawppy up...well he sat up, that went OK, he stood up, about 30 seconds and his BP dropped under the floor; he went back in the bed.
'Phew!
Good thing those were strong men, and they had a transfer belt around him.
So, then a few hours later they were back. More of the same, and this time pawppy took about 5 - 6 steps with the walker into a chair.
Progress!
He went in that recliner chair to an exercise class with others who also had joint replacements yesterday. Meowmy was there to learn what she has to do.

Later back in his room pawppy said he felt like he had just finished a full day's hard labor. He couldn't believe that yesterday he walked into the hospital unaided and now he can hardly even move his legs let alone walk...OMD The road is stretching out long befur him...uphill all the way. Good thing he is motivated.
Meowmy giggled a bit, and called him a wee weak kitten, she couldn't help it, but pawppy did have to agree, MOL!
Meowmy is trying to find out if there is anyone who can come to our den to see what still needs to be 'fixed' so he can come home...otherwise he may need to be at the rehab hospital for a week or so, till he is more mobile.

Meowmy moved a lot of fur-niture...and found half a ton of furry kittens under that stuff, MOL! Now we are having a ton of fun rediscovering the new layout! Once we came out of hiding from that naughty fur stealing machine...

MAYL!


PS:
Thanks for all the gifts, and comments and support.
Those balloons were a fun thing! Our page is going to float away, MOL!!

 

Update # 2

Here is some news about Pawppy's surgery today.

They had a bit of a wait at the hosp. this am, but then he was taken back, about 15min later than first thought. He was in the OR about 90 minutes, then the surgeon came out to talk to meowmy, he also showed meowmy a picture of the old joint. There was NO cartilage left on it at all.
He said that he thought this was caused by a shallow joint 'cup' a congenital malformation.
Pawppy then told everyone in the room that he had been having a soreness there most of his life...go figure.
Maybe he thought this was just how he was until recently when it got to be unbearable, and likely worsened by that fall he had 4 years ago.

He had a lot of severe pain right after the op, but once that got under control he did much better.

He had a good liquid lunch...YUCK!

Then he had some rest until before supper.

Well, when the nurses let him sit on the side of the bed, he felt very faint, so it didn't last long...
But he was eating a solid real food dinner, and looking 100% better at 9pm than earlier this afternoon.
So that is progress...and he isn't using morphine anymore, just a more ordinary analgesic.

Tomorrow the PT & OT peeps will assess him and design a 'plan'.

Well, thanks for your thoughts and prayers and our tired meowmy is going off to bed!
Tomorrow will be another busy day!

'Shutting Down'

[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ]

Well furends, meowmy was hoping to spend the whole weekend with pappy, but she got asked to work Saturday evening. That leaves a lot less time to do all the things she still wanted to do befur pawppy's surgery, so we are going to close the 'picture shop' starting Sept 29th. Not sure when we have it open again.
There may be an odd picture made, if meowmy can get some time, but we are not going to commit or promise.
We will let you know here in this diary about what progress is being made with our pawppy...
Please purr fur him, he has his op on Monday morning, early.

 

Mr Arthur Ritus Is Making Us Absent

September 22nd 2012 8:18 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ]

Mr Arthur Ritus...He is causing us to have to be in absentia fur a while, starting a few days hence:(
That nasty dude pinched our pawppy so hard that he can hardly walk. The human medicine man said he has to have a total hip replacement, as the only sure way to help.
Well that also means that meowmy cannot let us be here in 'full mode' for a while. She has to be his taxi, rehab coach and general helper.
She will try to be here to give you updates and progress notes, but we will NOT have time to make pic/mementos fur our furends. Some of those take an hour or more to make. Meowmy loves to do them, but there just will not be any time...we want pawppy to get better, we know you will understand, because you are all such furtastic furends.

We will have a new name/title to let you know when we are going into 'mini-mode'. Something like WBS-On Temp.Leave, or WBS-No Pics Fur Now...

Our den is getting to be looking intriguing fur curious kitties right now...and we can't wait until pawppy will be sleeping downstairs fur a while...but we sure hope he doesn't poke us with that cane thing we saw, MOL!

Please purray fur Pawppy, that things will go well fur him.

Well, we had a lot of rainy times today, it was nice so snuggle...on the laps of pawppy and meowmy.

We are not sure if we let our furends know that we got our new kitty bed from River's Contest. The one where we had to guess all the names. Well it came a while back,and we told River how much we loved it, etc, but we can't post any of the pics we have...yet. We are still on this old borrowed confuser...it does work, but can't hold many things in its memory, because it is too small there, It must be like amnesia, MOL! Eventually we will be able to do all these things when meowmy gets a newer confuser...um...then we may have to lie low until she gets that all figured out, MOL! Technology is not one of her strong points. Hah!


Purrs!
