Minor Update – Pooch & Human

Minor Update – Pooch & Human

Cricket is still doing well while taking her Rimadyl. Even when Phoenix jumped on her back while they were playing, she still didn’t limp. She snarled and acted like she wanted to fight, which is the closest they’ve ever come to fighting, but her leg held up. Breaking up snarly little dogs is SO much easier than breaking up snarly big dogs. Snarly big dogs, you have to let them finish or try to distract them by throwing plastic trash cans at them...not that we’ve ever done that, no sirree. Little dogs, you can quickly swipe at them, while making sure they don’t bite you. Or at least, that’s what you can do with Phoenix & Cricket. Other little dogs might bite you, I don’t know.

More Doctor Fun – Admit It, You Just Can’t Get Enough

After much reading, talking to my chiropractor a second time and talking to my brother (a chiropractor), it sounds pretty much like surgery is unavoidable. When you get two chiropractors saying, “Yeah, that’s pretty bad, I think you’ll need surgery”, that’s fairly definitive. Chiropractors very rarely want anyone to go the surgical route, if they can be helped any other way. So, I have a consult with an orthopedic surgeon on November 8th, the earliest appointment I could get. Next week, I have to go to his office for a twenty minute consult with someone on his staff. I guess to see if I’m worthy or something. Anyway, I’m hoping that maybe that consult can get my appointment with the doctor moved up. My hope for seeing the sports medicine…
