Healing Is Boring!

A week into my back problem & my problems seem to have all gone away, except for one…boredom!

My peeps have me locked in the sunroom where there are no stairs to go outside & have the couch blocked off like this.

2013-08-23 22.54.16No way for me to jump up there.  But you know who can still get up there?  The cats, Chloe & Moe.  Not fair, I say.

I’m only allowed into the yard to do my business.  I can’t chase squirrels, secure the perimeter or even warn my peeps about possible intruders.  I know it’s for me to feel better, but it’s still boring.

This is where I hang out all day with one of my people.

My peeps mostly lift me on & off of the mattress, because even climbing up on that could be bad for me.

At night I have to go in my crate, but since someone always sleeps on the sunporch with me, I don’t feel lonely & cry.

I feel 100%.  In another day or so my Prednisone will be decreased again to only every other day for 5 last days.  Hopefully then I’ll be all better for good.

My mom person is doing well also.  She is kind of whiney because on Tuesday she has to have a test where they put a camera down her throat & up her bum!!!  I sure hope if they use the same camera for both, they do the throat first, BOL!

Thanks from both of us for all of your love & wishes.  When I get sad my mom person reads them to me & I feel better!

  4. I am so happy you are getting better!!!! Miss Bella is doing tail nub wags, as she is happy too!!!! Keep being good, love ya!!!!!

  5. We know it’s rough, but if you get better quicker, you’ll just have to put up with it. Now about those cats having free rein–not sure about that!

  6. We are so glad to hear you are feeling good, Oskar, but best to follow the doctor’s orders so you are completely healed. We will cross our paws for your MOm and add some of our Mom’s prayers for her test to go well.

  7. Mommy had the throat/butt test before. She said she was shocked after the butt test because you have to pass the gas they inject in you by “passing gas”. How come humans get all upset if dogs fart butt its perfectly fine for humans to do that after a test. No fair.

  8. Oh! I’ve been away on holidays for a week and you have been going through all this trouble. I’m so sorry to read about it. I can sympathise with how you’re feeling, because we had weeks like this when Penny had her cruciate operation. The good news is, it does pass and you will look back on this difficult time as just a faint memory.

    I’ve also had that camera down the throat and up the backside, too! I hope you get good results.

  9. Yes, healing is really boring and difficult, isn’t it, Oskar? But you are doing a great job of it, buddy. Keep up the good work, okay? We;ll be purring and praying for you, and for your Mom Person’s upcoming test. Hugs and love to you both!

  10. Oh Oskar!! I’m so sorry I’m so late! I’ve been a terrible blog friend lately – my human has been so busy with the book launch stuff – and I’m just so behind. I only found out about your back ouchie now. I’m so sorry to hear about it! It sounds like you’ve been under “strict rest”…but I’m glad to hear that they’re dropping your medication now and I really hope that you’re on the mend.

    Oh! And good luck to your Mom Person for her tests too!!
