The door is up, laundry inside, a few groceries and goodies I picked up, (yes, little Home Run Inn Pizzas when they're on sale and Pirate's Booty, I do have my vices), and it's off to rescue the Black Knight.
He was quite happy to see me. He either missed me or it was the fact that I was out of my good Advocare Omega Softgel tabs and picked up some cheap Trader Joe Wild Salmon Oil tabs this morning as I left the Range. Now I'm burping Salmon Breath. If there's a Grizzly in the parking lot, I'm a goner.
My good friend Monkeywrangler shipped me a ramp for him for the truck that she wasn't using, should be here tomorrow. Until then, the makeshift sling. It's a tote bag with the sides cut out (ignore the dog hair and blood stains, par for the course in my world). I can put it under his chest and lift him by the handles like a 86 pound Poochi Purse.
He's still limping some on that front leg, not nearly as bad, but that may be due to pain medication he's on daily for now, that is new with his anti-imflammatories. I gave him one when we got in, as prescribed, as he was whining a bit. He did eat some food with it, which is good.
I'm not certain, but I think he's a bit stoned right now.
The two beds and the chairs and couch are blocked so he can't jump up on them. He's not real happy about that.
He goes back in two weeks for more x-rays. They could find no evidence of injury. The down time helped some but that might have been the additional pain meds. It's been three weeks since the limp suddenly, and for no reason, showed up. The good news is the blood work and liver function was normal. So another x- ray in two weeks to look at the bone again, then possibly a biopsy of the bone (given his history of a malignant cancer) if he's still in pain that can't be explained. I'll worry about that later, I'm just happy to have my furry best friend back with me.
Barkley, what do you want for supper?
