Kersey: Our dog is back to her usual happy self and is following Brett around while he works. She checks in with me once in awhile, but primarily focuses on Brett. Her pain medication is keeping her comfortable and the bone spur seems to have settled into its new home.
Me: My foot isn't broken which is great news. However, it does have a significant "crush injury" which involves bone contusions, ligament strains and nerve irritation. When the doctor told me it would take six to twelve months to heal, I about died. He assured me it wouldn't take that long to stop hurting. In the meantime, I need to support and pad it so everything can heal. It feels pretty good when I wear the walking cast so I'll keep using that for awhile. I did clean one of the pastures this morning and that was all I could manage. It will be a slow process but I can do whatever I want, as long as the foot is supported and it doesn't hurt. Works for me.
