RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

It got down into the signal digits last night. It is 12* right now with a windchill of 2*. We will recover slowly with a high near 30* but it will not fall much after that. It will start to warm back up and next week back to normal. Happy Birthday Garland hope you have a wonderful day. Everyday Pickles is getting back to her normal self. Yesterday was the first day I did not give her any pain medications. I was a little worried with how cold it was but she ran out of the liquid Gabapentin. She still has a few capsule of that left as well as Tramydal. But she was good this morning so I will see how she does after her walk. According to the surgeon she is supposed to be calm until December 1st will be 6 weeks from her visit. Then another 4 weeks of slowly activity. But she is way ahead of schedule. I have not seen her favor that leg in a few days. But it has been 6 weeks since she hurt herself so I guess she is not that far a head.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dale glad things worked out for you guys. Sounds like a great place. We got snow last night and today. Did not get what they called for. Only about 3 or 4 inches. A little southwest of us they got pounded with 11 inches. It is cold and windy but not as cold as Doug’s place. But warm up is coming back to normal next week.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Yesterday was a beautiful day sunny and a high in the lower 50's felt great. Our high today will be in the low 40's and that will be about noon. Then the temperature will fall as well as the snow. We are supposed to get around 5 inches or so. With lake effect one never knows. It will stay cold through out the week. We will have days that it will not get above freezing. But then come them come the weekend and temperature will climb. Sunday we will be back in the mid 40's and by Wednesday back in the mid 50's . Richard looks like you will still have good weather when you get to Ohio.

RE: Fifth Wheel cameras and tow vehicle

I know you mentioned Ford, but have you checked the new Chevy HDs? They have been advertising a new camera system to use while on the road. Not sure how it works, but supposed to integrate up to15 camera views. I recently just purchased a 2020 GMC Sierra. The new camera system is awesome. When the trailer is hooked when you engage your turn signal you have a side view camera that looks down the side of the truck and trailer. You have a camera to help you hitch. The invisible trailer camera gives you a nice view when backing up. When you are driving there is an app button on the home screen you can hit and see different camera views. That will view for about 6 seconds or so. GM really did a great job with these extra cameras. If yo have not checked any of the 2020 models out it is an awesome truck.

RE: Bizarre text this morning at 1:48

My sister received a phone call from her husband several days after he passed. Of course she did not answer it. But sure makes you wonder!

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We are in a little cold spell. The 8 day forecast will not be friendly. We will see temps in the mid to upper 20’s at night and in the mid to upper 30’s during the day. They have Snow or wintery mix in the forecast through the middle of next week. Richard the long range forecast will be back in the mid to upper 40’s when you arrive in Ohio. If you can bring another 10 degrees with you that would be awesome.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

On the news tonight it said decorating a Christmas tree and looking at decorations can improve your health. I guess if decorating and looking at decorations makes you happy. Then I can understand why they say it can improve your health. So break out the decorations.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dale hope you guys find what you are looking for. Winter will be here for the next few days. We can expect near freezing temps at night and low 40’s during the day. Then it will warm back up to fall like temps in the 50’s but weather man says it will not last as next weekend winter temps will be back.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

It is cold here and the wind cuts right through you. But that is Ohio. At least we did not get any snow yet. Pickles is making a good recovery. She is almost back to her normal self. She is actually starting to want to play again but we have to be careful as she is not completely healed. Sure glad we avoided surgery. It has been 4 weeks since she hurt herself. DR. Says she has another 5 weeks to go on bed rest so we have to try and keep her calm. She has been going for short walks to do her business I try to be careful if I think she has gone to far I pick her up and carry her. Glad she is only 15lbs.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Hey Dan, Garland and I are confused. She just got a Facebook message from Patty saying that the surgeon DID get the tendon to move???:? The ligament must of went back into place a while ago. He could not get the ligament to move when he examined her today. He said there maybe scar tissue starting to build and holding it in place. That is why she is on basically bed rest for 6 weeks to give it more time. He said this is his first case that he is holding off on surgery to repair. This is because the ligament appears to be holding in place.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Met with the surgeon today. He could not get the ligament to move. Suggested we keep her calm for the next six weeks to let the scar tissue strengthen to hold ligament in place. Gave us traxodone to keep her relaxed so she does not jump and get excited. We will just give her that when we know that will happen. He said short walking to do her business will be OK. He said this his first case that he could not get the ligament to move after being diagnosed. He did say he felt hard tissue around the ankle are and the Achilles. After we got home from the clinic Pickles appears to be hurting. The Vet really worked on her leg and I think she is feeling pain and discomfort from that. She will only take few steps and then stop.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We take Pickles today for a consultation for surgery. We are hoping that after the examination today he will not recommend surgery. Pickles has been doing much better. Yesterday morning she started being Pickles again. She was full of energy and went to her toy box and pulled out a toy and wanted me to play with her. This is the first time she did this since hurting herself. She was out in the yard with me for a while in the morning following me around like she used to. Took her for a ride and she was excited and would not stand still to get her harness and coat on. Although later in the evening she was in a little pain as she calmed down a lot and was sleeping. This morning when I got up she got out of her bed and went to the front door to go out and take care of business. This is the first time since she hurt herself she did this. So we have questions for the surgeon today, and hopefully we will not have to put her through it.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Hope everyone made it to Sevierville safely. We had our first frost last night. There is still some ice on the roofs here at 8:00 am. There isn't much change in Pickles. I have talked to 3 different Vetenarian clinics that are close by us. Non of them are willing to do the surgery on Pickles. The last Doctor I talked to is a specialist. He said if Pickles was a lab he would not hesitate, but because she is a small Pomeranian if it was his dog he would stick with Metropolitan Clinic that did the diagnosis. He said the 2 Doctors there are the best specialist and they handle all the hard cases. He also explained to me that if surgery is not done it could effect the Achilles' tendon if it has not already. He also said it after it is repaired it may happen again. He told me that he repaired 3 in labadores and 1 reinjured it in a years time. She is eating good now and drinking water. But you have to take it to her. I can tell it still hurts her as she tries to move around. So she really does not unless she gets excited so we try and keep her as calm as can be. She still is not doing her business as she should but is urinatining once a day. She did poop yesterday this was the first time since Thursday.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Pickles is doing a little better every day. She still will not move around. Her day is spending time in her bed when I give her pain medicine she sleeps. She usually sleeps on the bed with us but the last few nights she has been in her bed alongside of me. She does stay in her bed all night. She is eating and drinking but we have to take it to her for she will not walk as she is not supposed to either. I think she is starting to enjoy the waiting on her. This morning when I finished giving her the meds. I put her back in her bed and sat down next to her. She look at me and started licking her lips and sticking her tongue out. She wanted a drink of water so I had to go get her water bowl and bring it to her. She is acting like the pain is lessening so I only been giving her pain meds in the morning and before bed time. I think she knows she has us wrapped around her little paw and we will do what we have to for her.
