Just dropping in with a really quick post.
Lots of ideas about Art and about my Blog are swirling in my head
but I have no time or energy right now.
Last Sunday, Jimmy Chew was all hunched over and crying in pain.
ARE YOU GETTING SICK OF SICK DOG STORIES? BECAUSE I AM!
anyway, lucky for us I had some pain pills left from another time he hurt himself.
NEVER EVER give your dog IBUPROFEN or ALEVE or TYLENOL it could be FATAL.
Anyway, it helped him some and then I took him in for a chiropractic adjustment on Monday.
His neck seemed to be in bad shape.
We figured it's probably from him jumping up and down and up and down when I leave him in his kennel.
I rarely kennel him but sometimes I can't take him with me and if I left him loose he will chew my house into tiny pieces.
So probably the jumping ....and the fact that I'm always grabbing him by the collar when he's acting crazy doesn't help.
(I have now ordered him a harness instead.)
Doc gave him a chiropractic adjustment and then prescribed more pain meds and muscle relaxers.
On Tuesday Jimmy had a laser treatment.
Wednesday night he seemed better.
Thursday morning he was hunched over again, panting and crying.
I had to lift him into the van and carry him inside.
They did X-rays.
A slipped disc. Third one down in his vertebrae.
Another chiro, another laser treatment and meds refilled again.
Friday, another laser.
Jeez, I'm going to working there FOREVER.
Anyway, MUCH better TODAY.....Finally.
I myself, have been working everyday this week and this morning and tomorrow morning.
Lily helped me this morning. We were crazy busy.
So many dogs and so many more coming in...she said she doesn't know how I do it everyday.
Day in and Day out. I told her that I didn't know either.
I usually just try not to think about it.
I'm exhausted but it's Spring Break and it's going to be this way for a while.
Then it will drop off and then....
it will be Summer.
