Izzy is doing well. I took her to spend some time with my mom and her dog and my brother today. I took Gus to visit my dad (he is in a nursing home for demetia patients, he is 60 yrs old, has early onset Alzheimer's), so I didn't want Izzy to have to stay home again. Sometimes I take both of them there, but I didn't want to take Izzy because I was afriad a resident might give her food on accident. It was about 70 degrees here today, so Izzy got to take a nap out on my moms deck and sunbathe. It was like we had a heat wave, LOL. Its been in the 40's or 50's. I am sure she has a blast. I put 2 doggie beds on the deck so she could lay in the shade or the sun (my mom has a bed for each of my dogs at her house, for when they come visit). Then she came in my moms house and played a little with her cocker spaniel Coco (Coco is a crazy man, he is almost 4 yrs old, he's a rescue, chocolate cocker spaniel). She isn't suppose to be playing because of her knee, but she did play a little. She is limping now
I guess I should call the orthopedic. She said to call in 2 weeks if she wasn't doing better. But maybe I could give it more time to rest since she was sick. I dont want the doctor to put her on any medications.... I am sure that's what she will do. I think Izzy enjoyed getting out in the nice weather. It hasn't been very warm and she only goes out to potty. She was probably happy to go somewhere that wasn't the hospital or my house. At my moms house, we can block off the deck so she can only go on the deck and not run into the yard. My deck has 3 places to get off it, so its impossible to block it off. Izzy pooed today, and it wasn't diarrhea, just a little mushy. So, it's getting better. She wants to run and play so badly. I wish her knee would just get better. I think I will start giving her a little of her food tomorrow with her rice/chicken and hoepfully she does good. My mom just got an inground pool and they are opening it soon. When it gets warmer, I was going to sneak over during the day and take Izzy swimming. She doesn't really like to swim, but it will be good for her knee. My mom doesn't want her in the pool, but she is not there during the day, hehehe. Izzy does the water treadmill, but its 40 dollars a session and it adds up since we go every week. We haven't gone since she hurt her knee though. I am letting her rest from everything. I should be nice to my mom since she helped me with all Izzy's expenses. I will pay her back eventually, but I think I am over 4000 dollars now. I don't care if I have to pay it back the rest of my life, I love Izzy so much and she is worth every penny. Sorry I am just going on and on!! Izzy is doing well, and hopefully she keep improving. I will keep you posted how she does when she is back on her food.
Thanks for checking in on her!
