ok folks, this vist is important.
this is bernies follow up appointment with his surgen. this is where he tells me bernies long term recovery program and tells me if theres any issues or worries. please, cross your fingers and toes. pray if you will. bernie needs a good report. my heart is on edge right now. im a wreck honestly. i told ya a week ago that bernie had back slid in his progress a bit. i think hes back to moving forward a bit. or at least leveled off.
so his appointment is at 2pm tomorrow. we leave out of here at 12 on the dot. will be praying the whole way im sure. join in if ya got the time.
see ya tomorrow evening with the report.
bernie was a ham at UGA. we got there and he was soon taken to the back for about an hour.
so when it was time for me to come join him the on duty student came got me and was just shaking his head. i asked him what was wrong. he said that everybody knows bernie. i asked him what he ment. he said there were students coming from all over the place and other buildings to just say hello to bernie. they were popping their heads in just to tell him hello and give him a good petting. the student and i just looked at eachother.(the student is a guy).
my chin was on the floor. these beautiful doc/student from everywhere just popping up.
im like OMG! the last time i saw anything like this was my first concert back in 77.
it was the king himself, elvis. it goes to show my theory is correct.1, the dang dog is a chic magnet, and 2, everybody loves a beagle.
it was crazy. i wonder why he was so glad to see me when i went to pick him up post surgery.
if i were him you woulda had to drag me outta there kicking and screaming. the dang dog is a hit everywhere he goes. so in seeing this, my hunt for a beagle costum is back on! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
oh your probably wondering what the report is. ok, here it is in short:
:thumbup: :bounce: :bounce2: :animal18:
he didnt get to see his surgen, which i was totally disappointed about, but the resident surgen was on duity and filling in for dr platt.
he said bernie was doing just great as far as he could tell. he cave bernie 2 more weeks of crate rest due to his recent back slide. said then we can start to give bernie 10 minute walks. do that for 2 weeks, then bump it up to 15 minutes, and so on. said the drunkin hind legs could take up to 6 months to heal. told me to take it easy with bernie and to not expect to much from him. he said bernie showed signs of great possibilities for himself and his recovery. he said bernies
energey level was fantastic and thats exactly the way they like to see their patience. bernie was all over the place let me tell you. in to everything as a beagle always is. so im tickled to death about his report. on our way out, bernie did what he does best. we werent 2 ft out the door and up goes the leg and a gallon of his finest was left for other dogs to read.
thats bernie for ya. so there we have it folks. i hope everybody is as excited as i am about this.
i cant wait til we can snuggle again full time.
im gonna take my bed down off the frame so he dont have to jump to get in any more. well, after his crate rest is done. i took a nap in my own bed today. first time since bernie got hurt. boy that felt so good! i didnt want to get out.
so im gonna go cause i wanna hear everybodies input.
