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!

The Big Cats WON!!

August 23rd 2012 12:18 am
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ]

Today (the 22nd), we were rudely awakened by a noisy, frenzied dog-guy!
It was still early,and the peeps were still all in their nests, and the doors were locked, which means that dog-guy couldn't go through his doggy doors...so he barked and barked and growled and made way too much noise...he needs to be taught not to disturb the peace of us kitties.
Since he would not stop with the noise, he also woke the peeps up, and they finally let him go outside, where he continued to bark his head off, but somehow when he returned indoors his head was back on, MOL!

The reason he was such a nuisance was hot air balloons!
A huge one was hovering right above the ground in the field across from or den, and it was getting ready to land. It made its own noise.And we didn't care fur that either, maybe dog-guy was trying to rid us of that thing...

There was another one flying over our den, it was from the U of M. it had a huge blue 'M' on it..'GO BLUE'!

Well eventually all was quiet, and dog-guy came inside to sleep, he was tired from all that early AM activity, MOL!

Then after a while meowmy baked a cake, and decorated it...to give to unfurbro, who had his birthday, on the 22nd. Two decades already!

Well, they indulged themselves, and then all was furry quiet...we had the sunpuddles to ourselves, and dog-guy was in the bsack porch, with his open doggy door, so he could come and go at will, and open windows to enjoy the fresh air, and he was also on guard duty...for almost 12 hours. Woiw!

The unfurmilt went to Ann Arbor, and met up with the other unfurbro. They soon left there and went to have a late lunch, and from there they went to the Motor City...aka Detroit.
There was a contest there between some big orange cats with black stripes, and some large noisy blue and white burds.
This contest was being watched by some 37,000 spectators who meowmy said made a lot more noise than those two teams of contestants combined. We think we are glad we stayed home...though it might have been a lot of fun to see some big cats stalking burds...
Meowmy told us that the big cats won this contest against the burds...yeah!

Tigers 3 - Blue Jays 2

Meowmy felt a bit strange rooting for cats, over helpless burds...MOL...since those burds came from Toronto, and she is a Canadian...sigh...but she felt it was necessary to support her furmily who consider themselves true fans of those big orange Tigers!

Well, they came home at 130 AM!! So furry late!

Sorry is we didn't get to snag her to do our catretarial duties fur Catsterland kitty-furends, but we hope that if you need one in the future, she will be there fur us to mew at to do her slave duties!!

Now we need to go and catch up on our beauty snoozes..or are they handsome naps??

 

Olympicatrobatics! Sticking The Landing!

August 8th 2012 11:12 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Today we were chasing each other all over the den, and we were furry much into some heavy duty super-sonic zoomies!

Dog-guy was nearby, but in the spectator section.

In our den we have two couches back to back, sort of like a room divider.If you look in our pics you can see them, where we are ladder climbing...
Anyfurs, we decided to take our zooming path around that fur-niture...suddenly Pipo jumped over Minko, followed by Minko careening over Pipo! It was like synchronized back flips!
Now dog-guy was becoming a cheer-leader...he was getting evfur so interested in what we were doing.
Then we disappeared into the tunnel those two couches make...and out we popped at the other end, but we were now on the coffee table where our lamp stands. Pipo was in such a hurry, he didn't pay any attention of where his path was going, and he did a long-jump right on top of dog-guy! OOPS!!
Is that how you stick your landing?? Well he hissed and swatted and took off, all in a fluffy huff, and poor dog-guy didn't even have time to react, let alone do more than look at meowmy with bewilderment, as if to say what did I do to deserve that!?
Minko was able to come to a screeching halt, he stuck his own landing on the table beside the lamp...with his whole self looking rather larger than normal, he had become a bottle-brush with fright at all this catrobatic hoopla!
Meowmy now knows how it is that sometimes things are made to crash to the floor...and how spectators can get caught in the fracas of The Kitty Games!

 

WeBeesSwamped!! Freezers Fur Da Meezers!

Yup, the Meezers are swamped...overloaded and overjoyed at all those huge cakes on our page. We shall have to send meowmy out to get a freezer; maybe more than one...
Mol: Freezers Fur Da Meezers! MOL!

Thanks to all of our loving and purry-furry pals who are spreading the love around, as well as the cake. We are having our cake and eating it too, MOL!

No one should be on a diet tonight, it is too tempting!

In Dogsterland it is The Furst Of Dog-ust, so they are sharing their fun with us, isn't that sweet! We think so, and we are now off to start gobbling our way through all the yumminess on our page.
Nom-nom-nom...(Burp)...nom-nom-nom...does anyfur have any nipitinis or catweiser to wash these down?? MOL!


Thanks HQ for opening the pantry wide! We need to have a pawrty!
ENJOY!
