Izzie— Sunday Morning


The vet just called.  Izzie is complaining about being caged.  When they let her out to walk and pee and such, her tail wags and wags.  She wants to be around people.  In the cage "she vocalizes."  I assume that means she's either whimpering or barking. Probably both and she's very likely pawing the bottom of the cage. The vet said she would be better off at home since she's walking pretty well.  They will give me instructions on her care.

Instead of going to church, I'm going to go get her, even though I love the First Sunday of Advent. I finished Morning Prayer an hour ago, so that will have to do.

UPDATE:  Sunday evening.  Well she's home.  I had to wait a bit to pick her up.  I have no idea what they were doing.  The vet tech told me they had separated Izzie out from the other dogs and that she was quite a character.  She just needs to be around people.  I was shown how to do physical therapy with her.  We tried it out at the hospital and Izzie was less than cooperative.  Mainly it's massaging her back and back legs and working her legs four times a day.  She has two medicines she has to take.  One is prednisone and the other an antibiotic.  You should see her.  She has a rectangular bald patch on her back with seven staples in the middle.  I just took this picture of her battle scar.  You will have to click on it to see it in its full g(l)ory.

We took a little nap after we got home and now she's resting after a bit of food.  She won't let me out of her sight.  Her activities are supposed to be restricted, but mine are too.  She's worth it.  Right now she's resting on the floor at my feet.

She's home. We had a very stressful trip back. She wanted on my lap and I was driving. It took a half and hour before she calmed down and slept on the floor. I'm posting an update on the blog.

I'm sure that Izzie will heal much faster at home. Enjoy the quiet time together.

It's good to have her here. She whimpers a lot. Something I've never heard in her before, but I think I would complain too in her situation.

I whimper, I find it odd that you don´t...just drive me close to the eye doctor (right Mimi) and I can start in a flash...the anatheisolgist knows I´m a coward...I whimper for him and then he says ¨are you feeling drowsy¨...I firmly, yet wimperly, say nope and then I´m bonkers, gone and out...blessings to dear Izzy and I betcha big bunches of bananos that she would be sweet to you too if you ever wimper...betcha I´m right! Coban says HOLA and GET WELL SOON!

Izzie is great with people who whimper, especially me. She's a wonderful snuggler. Hola Coban. I feel much better this morning, I got a piece of bacon for breakfast.
