Been A While ...

... too long since I last posted. Lot's has happened since. Most notably Thekla had surgery #2 on her elbow and also had some fat removed from her belly, a Doggie Tummy Tuck. Not to improve her figure, but to grow some stem cells which will be injected into the elbow starting tomorrow. The hope is that tissue will be produced that will reduce the problem of bone on bone in the elbow joint which is causing pain and lameness. Other than holding up her paw and limping occasionally, one would never know that she's uncomfortable. The hardest part of all this is trying to keep her calm and inactive after each procedure.
Thekla as a sad petunia in May after surgery #1.
Thekla in July - feeling better.
And this morning, watching me out of the corner of her eye when I interrupt her snoozing on her new bed. Wonder if she knows what's in store for her tomorrow.
