Stories From the Crate


Good news: Frank is feeling much better, is learning to walk on three legs and is acting more like himself!
Bad news: His mind is back to itself(still good!) but we have to keep him constrained for two weeks post surgery. 

It's Wednesday and we have 9 more days of strict crate rest and he is already sooooo over it. I mean I am pretty sure I have heard him swear at me. 

For the most part I have stayed calm and positive-he really is getting better everyday! BUT there is also a lot of guilt because I have to enforce so many if these rules he can't understand and rules he hates might I add. And I feel terrible about the fact that I brought him to the vet last week to have this horrible procedure done-blergh guys blergh!

Jon has been excellent at helping me keep my calm but with me still dealing with my grief over Nani and having to deal with Frank's recovery-sometimes I crack! Like last night for instance, our anniversary no less-I was sobbing over our Chipotle and champagne!

I'm so not myself these days. I know this is a really rough patch and it isn't forever-but in the meantime...ugh. Just ugh.

Healing Thoughts

Our Franker bear underwent surgery yesterday for a torn acl-the surgery was supposed to take one hour but ended up taking two and a half hours-the damage was more intense than we had thought. It breaks my heart to think of my doodle bug in so much more pain than he was letting on.
we knew from the day we brought him home that knee surgery would be in his future it is hard to actually have to go through with it.
Especially in light of losing Nani-I am feeling quite overwhelmed lately. 

 While he is home and safe with Jon and I-it is very difficult to watch him be in so much pain and confusion. We are doing the very best we can to make his recovery as tolerable as possible but gosh, it is doesn't seem like enough. 

So for the next couple days we will be crossing our fingers, holding our breath and hoping all of out efforts are enough to keep my baby boy comfy. Any healing thoughts or prayers you could send Frank's way would be do appreciated.

Back to Life...Back to Reality




We are now home after a whirlwind of celebration for two good friends. It was such an honor to take part in such beautiful tradition in such a beautiful setting. I do wish that it could have been pure celebration for me but it was also so helpful to have something positive to put some focus on.
Tomorrow is Monday and it means we are back to the real world. I'll be honest, I'm a bit nervous to get back to the real world but I'll just have to take it one step at a time.
