Silly Mom, taking my picture with the sun in my eyes!!!
Mom, you need to remember my shades if you want a photo when the sun is shining so brightly.
There!!! That's much better.
Some of you have been wondering how I am doing. I am OK. There really hasn't been any change in my condition. Mom says she thinks that my second knee injury is now healed about as well as it it is going to get. There is a lot of popping going on in that joint when I walk, not all the time, but when I am too tired to walk any more, it sounds like there is a Fourth of July celebration going on inside my knee. I don't put a lot of weight on that leg, but I do try. I lost three nails on the other leg from dragging my feet. Mom made me wear socks for a while when I was outside so my paw could heal. It is better now, and the nails are very slowly growing back. The dragging is still there so the nails will probably break again. I don't like to walk very far when Mom takes me out on my leash, but she says I have to keep my joints moving. So she takes me out 8-10 times a day. I know it makes it hard for her with her busy schedule, but she says I am worth it. I continue to take my pain medication and joint supplements. Misty and Timber do a good job of keeping me company. I just wish I could go out in the yard to run and explore with them. I keep trying to sneak out with them when Mom lets them outside, but even as old as she is, she manages to keep me inside. So that's the scoop. Time for me to go rest up for my next stroll outside.

Take it nice and slow and easy, Lightning. We continue to send you lots and lots of AireZen and positive vibes! Love the first picture of you. Your furs look so soft silky and you are so handsome!ReplyDelete
It's hard to pose nicely when you are blinded by the sun, but you still mad a good job of it.ReplyDelete
It's hard to take it easy when everyone else is charging around having fun, but your mum is only thinking of you.
We hope you start feeling better real soon, Lightning. Take it easy.ReplyDelete
You're looking good Lightning. We are keeping our paws crossed that you continue to do as well as you can. Your mom sure loves you to take such good care of you.ReplyDelete
You have an amazing Mom.ReplyDelete
You poor baby. You have the heart of a hero. We are sending love an prayers to you our friend.ReplyDelete
Lightning, it's a real dampener, having such ickies. Trust me I know. My left knee kinda does all that pop and crackle as well! Totes sympawthighs honey-bun. I think you are managing, with lots of help from mum, to make the best of things and that is just fine. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
We're glad you are doing ok Lightning, and it sounds like you and your Mama are keeping your chins up!ReplyDelete

Lightning - I can tell how much your mom loves you. She's taking incredible care of you. You are a lucky boy to have a mom like her. We love you, Lightning, and we do hope that things keep on improving.ReplyDelete
Hi Lightening, you have wonderfully caring Mom. It must be frustrating for you, but Gail and I think you should try to cooperate with her efforts to keep your aches and pains to a minimum.ReplyDelete
Oh and well done to Misty and Timber for helping keep your spirits up.
All the best to all of you.
"... but even as old as she is, she manages to keep me inside." Bless your mom for taking care of you. Love and best wishes to you all.ReplyDelete
It is so wonderful to see you and I’m glad to know you are getting along okay.ReplyDelete
Hey my handsome Woo friend....OMDs look at that smile!!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the update and your mom is correct...you gotta keep moving.
Once I heard a PT tell a patient that 'motion is lotion'!!
You and your Mom are both in motion.
You look GREAT Lightning - even with the sun in your eyes. It's nice to see you and we're glad you are getting around but don't overdo it. I know your Momster is keeping your activity well monitored and that's for your own good dear boy so "keep to the plan" !! Happy to hear you're taking your supplements and meds too - it all goes to help keep you moving, happy, and loving life. BE GOOD!ReplyDelete
You're looking very 'fur-bulous' all the same. 😍ReplyDelete
Good to get your news, Lightning. We are just wondering whether there is a facility anywhere around you that would have a aquatherapy pool? Would that help your joints and to get exercise without risking further injury?ReplyDelete
Of course you're worth it! You do need to walk. Glad your mom is working hard on getting the walks in. There are worse things than socks, hope they work for your nails and paws.ReplyDelete
Lightning, sending POTP and your Mama rocks!ReplyDelete
Brave Lightning, we're keeping you and your Mom in our prayers. POTP. You sure look beautiful today sweet boy.ReplyDelete
Oh Lightning, we are so glad you are getting out for some strolls. You are looking mighty good. We know the Mom is exhausted but happy to go for little walks with you. Sorry we are late, but two cats had to go to the vet this morning and and they fine. Sissy got her stitches out from the eye. You all take good care.ReplyDelete
Sounds like your mom is doing a wonderful job taking care of you. XOReplyDelete
we want to send some pug kisses to your mom for taking such good care of you Lightning. Glad you are hanging there. Things have been pretty busy here, what with extra classes and then baseball and softball tournaments with the grands, we are late getting around.ReplyDelete

Lulu: "Hang in there, Lightning. You are a real trouper!"ReplyDelete
Charlee: "You sure are!"
Chaplin: "We send lots of purrs for fewer knee fireworks in the future!"
Lulu" And I send tail wags!"
Angel Casey used to say "Growing old isn't for sissies!" We're glad you're tough enough to manage it.ReplyDelete
Your mom is the BEST for taking such good and careful care of you. It takes a lot of time I'm sure, but you are so worth it! Just be sure to give her an extra kiss now and then to show her how much you appreciate it!ReplyDelete
