9 Months Post Surgery

The last time I wrote was five months ago.  Shame on me.  Blogging is certainly not my strong suit, that’s for sure.

Tessi is doing amazingly well.  Looking back I think a lot of little quirks she had may have been due to her inability to jump or run.  I think she probably always had a problem with that knee and now that it’s repaired she’s like a new cat.

I won’t deny it…I still cringe when she jumps.  But, less and less each time.  It took me several months but I finally put the perches back on the seven foot cat tower.  She leaps up there like it’s nothing.  It is amazing.

Looking back on the fear and hesitation before having her operated on, I am so very thankful I went through with it.  She has certainly faired far better than I have.  For those of you who might remember, too exhausted to think clearly after her surgery I took a fall and separated my right shoulder.  After physical therapy, anti inflammatory meds, ice every night (still) and an MRI this summer….I guess it “is what it is” and it’s “my” new normal. Guess the arm won’t be what it was before…the older we get arthritis settles in to all those messed up spots and takes over.  Oh, well…it’s always something, isn’t it?

I’d love to say I’ll post more often, but I say that every several months don’t I?  I wonder if there’s such a thing as an annual blog?  lol

    So very wonderful to hear she is like a new kitty! I know how great it is to see a once broken kitty thrive with their “new knees.” I also know what it’s like to cringe every time she jumps! Trust me, there will come a day when you won’t and it will be as if she never had a problem… never had surgery. I used to look at Maggie May all the time and only think about what she went through with her knees. Now, it’s almost forgotten. It has been over five years now.

    I am also sending you lots and lots of healing vibes for your shoulder. That sounds like such a painful injury and I hope that someday it will feel as good as Tessi’s new knees!
