Happy 11th birthday to my boy!

Kind of bittersweet as it’s his first birthday not shared with his sister Trinity. Tyler said he’d eat her treats.

6 weeks postop and I’m making a change

Today I made the decision that feels like pure common sense to me to stop PT with the bands. This is what I sent the surgeon this morning. “I started back with the bands daily as instructed. The pain got worse again. I tried every other day instead of daily, and my recovery is still going the wrong way. IF, and only if a PT would give me guidance for now and tell me what to do later I’d like to go once. If they insist on multiple visits I’m going to just continue movements like this and see if I can start hurting less than before the surgery.

Regardless of the exact size, it was a site to see. Continue reading

Pet Food Recall Poll

Recalls seem to come in batches. I want to add them to my site as soon as I see them BUT I don’t really like them cluttering up my Catch-all ie: blog page.

If you subscribe to my blog (sign up on the first page) you’ll get an email when I post regardless of where the post lands on my site.

I think I’d prefer for the non-subscribers who don’t sign up for email updates, to have to click under the Cat or Pet/Pet Food recall tab.

What are your thoughts?
