We gave her a bone to try to keep her entertained this afternoon. You can see how put-out she is. (Those are the hubby's knees strapped up to his super-duper ice machine in the foreground.)
|"Most boring weekend, evar!"|
So, unfortunately, our poor bored girl has not gotten up to much mischief lately!
All this sitting around
Top 5 ways the hubby's knee surgeries recovery is like Abby's amputation recovery:
1. You have to help them get around. (For Abby, I had a sling; for the hubs, I have a rolling office chair.)
2. You have to get the pain meds dialed in. (At least the hubs can tell me when and where it hurts!)
3. You wait days for that first post-op poop. (Still. Waiting.)
4. You have to have special foods handy to entice them to eat. (Abby had her Flying Dutchman; the hubster seems to want nothing but soup - even though it's still crazy-hot here.)
5. You can't wait to see them up and hopping around again!
Top 5 ways the hubby's knee surgeries recovery is NOT like Abby's amputation recovery:
1. No Cone of Shame! (He has neither the desire nor the flexibility to lick his incisions.)
2. No visitors! (My family members came to visit the dog. Guesss how many have come to see the hubs? Did you guess none? You'd be right! I guess we know where Abby rated!)
3. At least the hubs doesn't want to be alone. (Abby "hid" in the yard behind our huge potted plant. The hubs at least prefers to have me hang out on the sofa with him. Besides... who would fetch his meds and snacks and the remote for him if he was alone??)
4. Haven't had to drag the mattress on to the floor! (Since Ab slept in the bed with us, we put our mattresss on the floor so she could still get in and out of bed with us if she wanted to. At least I haven't had to do that. Yet.)
5. There's not going to be any video of the hubby's first time walking around!
Here's hoping things are back to normal(ish) around here soon so Rita can get back to mischief making!
