Hi all! Hope everyone is hanging in there!!
I had news from my rehab vet last month and it wasn't great. She said my left knee, the one I tore my CCL 6 years ago, is now bone on bone. That means I have none of the cushioning stuff left in my knee joint that I should have. She gave my man some Tramadol for me to take and gave my people a prescription for me for Tylenol with Codeine. My people still haven't given me any of the Tramadol and haven't filled the Tylenol prescription yet because they said they don't think I'm having any pain issues from my knee. They did talk to my acupuncture vet and she is now doing cold laser on my knee when she comes out every other week. I really like having laser done so my people are looking into either renting or buying one to use in between vet visits. They also want to talk to my regular vet about what pain meds she thinks would be best for me with my various issues.
It was really hot the swims after we got back so I skipped going to the pool. I got to do my 1st post-vacation swim at the end of August. My woman was able to go in the water with me and we all had a lot of fun. They decided to have me swim for 30 minutes instead of my normal 45 minutes and I didn't get exhausted. I've been swimming my normal every other week swims for 30 minutes.
We had some smoke come in from wildfires from southern Oregon. We had to keep the windows closed and run what my people call the house fan so stuff goes through the filter. I still have an air purifier in each room. It wasn't bad like last year though and the air seemed to clear each night so we could have the windows open.
We had some rain last week. Real rain!!! The 1st real rain we've had since June. My grass is starting to get green and it doesn't crunch when I walk on it anymore.
