We have got our little Scarlett home after her op yesterday which went very well. She is confined to the conservatory mostly to rest her leg & has 3 different meds for pain & antibiotic cover. Laura the vetinary nurse showed us how to do her physio this morning & massage her leg to encourage the flow of fluid back up her leg to prevent swelling. Since she has got home she has managed to eat some food & had her treament which she tolerated very well. She even had a waggy tail when I was doing it! Having a pet really makes you consider life from a new perspective. You have to notice their little signs & nuances that say Mum I want feeding, a stroke, a wee, I'm uncomfortable etc. It beggers belief that some people can hurt an animal which gives you only unconditional love.
Well I've done my kettlebell & Zumba cardio workouts today & am feeling bright & bushy tailed.May go out for a walk with hubby later this evening. Off to make a quiche-without the pastry for tea & I may try out a new lower calorie cake recipe for the family. I find that I am enjoying cooking more these days by making new things-you can get in a rut sometimes can't you! Anyway I'll say TTFN.
