    • So I had to totally miss out on a fun gala last night related to the Big Boy steam locomotive.  Hubby & Shortman went, Shortman was introduce to the man that is head of Union Pacific steam program.  The gentleman was nice to have his PUC taken with Shortman & also signed the special edition cover of trains magazine.  Talk about making a 9yr olds day.  Oh & it was encouraged for guests to dress steam punk. Hubby & dressed up Shortman on open platform of UP business car.  I wasn't totally forgotten.  Hubby bought me a pair of car marker lamps for my business car on silent auction.
    • Watching him take the first couple steps was funny, he high-stepped on all fours for the first few minutes.  He figured it out pretty quickly, how to step up and down and last night when I did bed-check, he was laying down and got up pretty well to greet me.  I put him on grass today.
      I can't put another board on top of the manger as then they wouldn't be able to reach the floor.  Don't want to put a board they have to duck under as if anyone spooks, they'd crack their head.  Ken is mulling some ideas.  I showed him something called a "tombstone" panel and he thinks he can weld something similar.
        I'm glad your surgery went well.  I didn't get to see the part of my colon they removed but the Dr. told me that portion was completely diseased over the outside layer.  Inside, it looked inflamed like the rest of the colon length, but outside it was clear what the damaged area was.  
      Your stew sounded wonderful!  I'm sorry it was the trigger but I'm hopeful it has become the blessing-in-disguise as it prompted the surgery that will allow you to eat again.  You know yourself best, start slow and see what you do and don't tolerate.  As far as not eating greasy, fried or fast food - I tend to avoid those and can't say I feel as if I'm missing anything.   It won't be too big.  Vet says I can remove it Monday and I can just wrap the injury itself w/out the standing wrap after that.  She did this to help prevent swelling for the first few days after the injury.
    • Whew!  Sounded like a mountain of obstacles to overcome but it seems you guys are getting a handle on things pretty quickly.  I'm sorry he had a bad day and night, those are no fun for anyone.  The person with the pain is feeling it and everyone around them is 'feeling' it too, but mostly wishing they could take the pain away.  It is a pretty helpless feeling, no matter which side of the pain you're on.  (((hugs for all)))  
    • Yes it can always be worse, the skin grafts would have been so much worse. Much better to have broken bones than nerve or spinal damage too.   He’s home with us now. He had a bad day and night but seems as if the leg is settling down now. I feel he will be here longer than I thought he would be. Car transfers are extremely difficult with a leg that doesn’t bend. The long drive home, bumpy country roads and the porch stairs into his house will have to wait a while.  Cooked dinner for the fam last night and was up last night on medication duty, I am pooped but we’ll be a fine tuned machine in a few days.
