Welcome back Sherry,
the accident. We must have dogs of similar ages, mine is 2 1/2. I have a female chocolate labradoodle named Shea. She is very smart and well tempered, better than I could have hoped for.
This morning I was walking up my stairs with a cup of coffee in my hand and tried to step over her but got her tail. She jumped and I moved immediately to get off of her tail. With the coffee in my hand I couldn’t grab the railing. I almost feel 6 stairs down to the floor. I was very close but I regained my balance. I have to be smarter about
this stuff. All I had to do is tell her to move out of the way.
The PT folks are great, I don’t think people understand how important it is to rehab and injury/surgery until they complete it for the first time and see all of the progress they’ve made.
Did you have to stop Remicade for the surgery? I had to stop Stelara for my hip replacement and then restart it 6 months later. No antibodies so far to Stelara, I was just tested the other day. Prometheus Labs has a test for Stelara now.
How’s the grandchild and your daughter? It’s nice to see you on here and I hope that you continue to visit us regularly.
