Recuperating


I'm in jail again. I'll be confined in my pen for at least ten weeks. I injured my left knee this time. Tore my anterior cruciate ligament and had to undergo surgery last Wednesday, Feb 29th. If you recall I had surgery on my right knee last April. The doctor warned us last year it was likely going to happen to my other knee too.

This time around though had some side effects from the fentanyl patch. Had been feeling disoriented and confused the first few days which worried mom and dad since I didn't have these side effects previously.

evening of March 1
Obviously the person who shaved my fur didn't train under Paul Mitchell or Vidal Sassoon. I'm not happy with the fur cut. They shaved too much, I think I'm gonna cry.


March 3, enjoying the sunny weather



March 5, just woke up



Anyway, if you don't see or hear from me for awhile, no worries, I'm just home recuperating.

Poor, poor baby. There are so many of our friends needing the knee surgery. So far Easton's is not bad enough to require a bad haircut (if you know what I mean).

Take it easy, get well soon. Do what your Mom says at all times. You'll be taking walks again before you know it.

Oh Meeka, I'm so sorry you had to go through this. I wasn't following you when you had your last surgery so this is the first I've heard of it. I feel so darn bad that you've been having a rough time. I know you'll be up and running in no time. Sending a lot of healing prayers your way.

Oh Miss Meeka, My heart really hurts for you. 10 weeks, oh my. I almost died having to stay in my room for two weeks.

I sure wish I could come and be with you.

My Vickie was pretty upset when they cut off all my hair on my tummy but boy you really got a shave down. But don't worry, it grows back (or so they told me)

Love
Bert

We heard about your surgery over at the Thuglets and came by to leave healing purrs and barks. We're sorry you'll be in prison so long.

Sherry said...

I'll bet it was your mom who cried at that shave job. I hope you don't mind too much lazing around for ten weeks. It's such a looooong time when you can't play.

Casper Bear said...

Hi Meeka! So sorry to hear from the Thuglets about your surgery. I hope you feel better very soon. I have had luxating patellas done in both my knees and am now awaiting a hip replacement, so I know only too well how you are feeling. Good luck and I will visit you often.
