    Default Katy is home post surgery

    The trip south to melbourne took two hours longer (Nearly 6 hours), because of rain, flood and car accidents

    The vet was great, Katy loved them all over there. I was allowed to visit through the night and the morning and she had her very own fan, as promised. Visiting was a bit of a non-event as she was passed out on morphine LOL......They keep the dogs on sheep skins. She was walked by them three times and did her p's.

    She is walking better now then she was before. She has a real sway, but he says that will all settle. She is allowed to leash walk for the P's and we just have to keep her contained with at least 4-5, 5min walks. Just no steps, unless in sling.

    They gave me a copy of the pre-arthroscopy, but I will have to ask for the x-rays as there was 2x arthroscopy and no x-rays on the CD, someone made an error.

    All in all I am pleasantly surprised at how well the trip went....now comes the hard part, rehab

    Any great ideas will be gladly taken on board
    The last pics are all about the last few days getting ready for and taking Katy for her surgery

    Feb 29........reading over all the info




    March 1........We got to the Surgery and we were handed more info and more talks about the surgery. Take note.the ortho vet owns a Berner



    March 2.........We got home after another challenging drive through tempest, flooding and storms....A drugged Katy with Morphine on board





    March 3.......This morning, we are NOT talking to anyone. We are not happy being crated

    I hope it was someone else having car accidents - not that I'd wish that on anyone.

    As best I can tell the southern bit of South Australia, and Western Australia are the only places not underwater right now.

    One I was nearly part of....if it hadn't been for the 4x4 with new Cooper tyres......No one badly hurt, just very messy and cars not moving or able to be moved

    I was in Vic recently and on a Sunday I was driving towards town on Dandenong road or whatever it's called as it goes through Dandenong (looked like about 6 different names on the map)... The weather was wild. Blowing a gale, some horizontal rain, bits of tree going everywhere.

    All the locals were going about 40km/h in an 80km/h zone. And I'm thinking - this would never happen in Adelaide - they'd all be going flat out as long as they could still see out their windscreens - and even then sometimes they don't slow down.

    I was glad I was driving a 4WD with chunky tyres that weighs a couple of tonne. Though the side blasts weren't fun. And it was tricky dodging all the little cars. They might have been going slow but that didn't mean they were going to stick to their lane or use their indicators.

    Vics are more likely to use indicator before a lane change than Adelaide drivers tho. Here the indicator is more like "look what I did" not "watch what I'm about to do".

    Good luck with her rehab and hope it all goes well. It is not much fun for anyone.

    Talking of rain, I would love some. My paddocks are bone dry and dusty and I am handfeeding sheep at the moment. Shame that there isnt a more even spread across Australia, instead of flood and drought

    Great to hear the surgery went well and she is home on the mend

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
