    I’ve often wondered about animal communicators, this is one that I might actually try it.



    Yup, but not ready to do without it yet

    Now I have the knee bend machine, doing an hour to 45* today, then 60 tommorrow it feels pretty good.

    Some orthopedists don’t use the machine, but I was glad mine did. It sure helped me. So how are you doing? Feeling somewhat better?im sure you have been up and to the bathroom or commode by now.

    Best wishes, sending you sympathetic thoughts, keep your eye on the prize (Stella) and pain free walking!

    I just woke up and good to hear. Yeah, morphine tends to make you nauseas. I tried it for a couple times and never could deal with it, but that was just pain management in general not post surgery. It is so affective on pain, I'd just deal with it unless it was bad. They'll switch you soon though.

    Thinking of you-!!

    Hi, mooselady, hope you feel better soon.

    Quick question, have you had her teeth checked? Something wonky about how she's holding her head on the left side when she has her bridle on.

    No not yet, and it needs to be done for sure, she’ll be on the list for the next visit.

    Not sure i’m Seeing anything wonky, but definitely need to make sure she is not struggling there.

    Hope you recover soon, nausea sucks!!



    We don't use the CPM anymore, research showed it didn't help the knee gain flexion in the long run, so insurance stopped paying for it, and we have a goal of 90 deg the day after surgery.

    Get well soon!!

    I really like her but her face makes me so sad. She just looks so disconnected and depressed. I am very glad she is with you and will see a better way of life.

    90deg :eek::faint:

    I can make 65* on a slide assisted by my “reins”

    I made 75* on the CPM tonight.

    I can sit on the edge and dangle 90*

    She does look sad, and she looked so sweet on the videos, I guess it is going to take time and consistency...and I am confident they will take the time with her....
