Luci is doing very well. She doesn’t seem to be in any pain. She’s not having any trouble getting around with the lampshade on her head. We’ve nicknamed her "Crash" because she crashes into everything. The incision looks good – no signs of infection and she’s hasn’t popped any of her stitches. The rest of the family, though, is a little worse for wear over this surgery. She’s crashed into each of us a number of times and that little plastic thing really hurts. We’re trying to deal with the activity limitations that she’s supposed to observe. . . ever try to keep a 6 month old lab puppy from running or jumping?! Luckily, the weather has been a little on the cold side so she doesn’t really want to stay outside all that long.
I’ve had a wonderful long weekend – even though I’ve been worrying and fussing over Luci. I got to spend some quality snuggle time with all three of the animals. Even Smokie came out of hiding a couple of times to snuggle on my lap when Luci and Blacky were upstairs asleep. I got to watch some DVD’s that I’ve had for a while but just didn’t have time to see. I took a nap on the couch. Finally started a new cross-stitch project that I’ve been thinking about since just before Luci came to live with us. Even spent some quality time with hubby on the couch watching TV.
I think the relaxing weekend is my reward for the worrying that I did last week before Luci’s surgery. . . . and all the guilt I put myself through over the surgery. I just have to get through the next few days of Luci and the lampshade, Luci’s activity restrictions, and making sure the incision stays clean and healthy. It’s going to be an anxious few days, but I’m going to be off work again this coming Friday and I hope that it’s just as relaxing as this weekend was.
