At home, and with work, it left little spare time. I felt like I kept up with all the work and things went pretty well. Even if it hadn't gone well, of course I was not going to complain.

While Carl was gone, as you know, Bo arrived. He's getting along nicely with all the dogs. However I was hoping that after nearly 2 weeks he would be a little more adjusted to the routine, but he's not. Maybe it's the blindness, and because how he is living is so different than what he has always known.
Max returned last Saturday to have his "healing x-rays" taken, and to also snap a picture of his other knee. One of the screws in Max's knee (3rd from the bottom) looks like it may have drifted, but otherwise, everything looks pretty good.
We're continuing with weekly cold laser therapy and acupuncture for both knees and his back which is sore. In between treatments I've been shown how to massage Max's back, and I apply warm compresses. He loves the extra attention and the pampering! Max is getting around pretty well and he's putting his full weight onto his repaired knee, but is still really tentative on his right knee. We're waiting to hear from the surgeon about the next step for Max. Until then, he's kept on a leash and is on "restricted activity" for (at least) a few more weeks.
Yes, there's no doubt that the last two weeks have been mostly business at our house. But there is the comic relief from "You Know Who" that always makes me laugh.
What would I do without him?
Thank-you so much for stopping by! I've really missed having the time read blogs, but I know you understand. I so look forward to being able to catch up with you!!
