The results show....

As you all remember I went to the vet
yesterday because I was limping and
wasn't getting better.

I saw my regular vet and an Orthopedic doctor.
 They did a VERY thorough check up
and I also had to walk around a lot for them.
Then they gave me some medicine and I took
a nap.  When I woke up Mike and Beth were there
and they had taken a bunch of pictures of my
bones....hips and legs.

Much to EVERYONES surprise
my hips and legs are good to excellant!
Not a thing wrong with them.


I broke my toe....

don't ask me how I did that!

Nothing they can do about it --
it's all up to me!
I need to take some pain medicine and rest.
They said it can take up to days or weeks for
it to heal.

Mike and Beth were really happy....
no, not because I broke my toe but
because it wasn't something really
serious that would require surgery.

THEN we no more than got home and
the door bell rang.  A delivery for....

Guess who it was from....
Two of my best friends --
Remember Jack the one
that wrote that great book!
(just click on his name above
to see how to order one of his books! 
It's worth it!)
Yep, him!

Did you see all the treats in that basket?
You know how to make a guy smile and
it even made my toe feel better!

Back to getting better....

Later -- Remington --
resting in Minnesota
-- out!

I think Jack and TG are about the most thoughtful, caring friends to send you a get well basket full of goodies.

Ginny Hartzler said...

Well, Rem, I have been nervously awaiting the results of the doctors today. And I am SO glad!!!! Yippee!! I wish I was there to give you a big kiss. Now i'll tell you something. I broke MY toe when I was a young pup, er, girl! and they said you cannot wear a toe cast! Or a toe sling, either!! It will get better, Rem! The picture of you and Mike is priceless.

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Owie! While we are sorry your toes is borken, we are glad it wasn't something more serious!!! Enjoy all your goodies! We will be purring for your toe to heal quickly!

jen said...

Hi Rem, tell your Mom it took Sherman about a week until he wasn't favoring his toe, but to be honest it never healed correctly. It was digit 2 on his front left paw(which would be the toe closest to his dew claw) and the toe sticks out a bit to the side now but not much, it doesn't cause him any pain and you hardly notice it with all the hair.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Remington, get better really soon please!! A broken toe hurts! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Anonymous said...

Bummer about the toe, but we're really glad it wasn't something more serious! When Riley first got diagnosed with hip dysplasia, they had originally thought that she had a broken toe that was making her limp...unfortunately it was her bum hips, so we're REALLY glad that you don't have a major problem like that!!

Rest up and feel better soon! :)

Elyse and Riley

White Dog Blog said...

Glad it was nothing horrible or superserious, my friend. But you still must rest and take it easy so the toe has time to heal. We are sending White Dog healing energy your way. Guess this means you won't be trying out for male lead at the NYC ballet this year, huh?

Suka said...

hey Remington,

Great news! So furry happy it was just a toe and nothing major. I hope your toe heals quickly, and I am furry sorry you broke it. Too bad you can't share with us how that happened. :->

Please rest up and take it easy until you are back to being 100% you!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We are so sorry to read about your toe, although we're glad it's not worse. Hope it heals as close to perfect as it's possible to get.

Interesting to see Ozabella is pursuing an advanced degree. A girl [or guy] can never have too much education!
