Although I really don't want to get into all my own health woes, I have been diagnosed with cancer (very treatable), but, of course, I was one of those statistics that developed complications and have been hospitalized for 3 weeks instead of 3 days.
I will see my soon-to-be one year old Teddy tomorrow for the first time when I finally get to leave this hospital. I can't tell you all how much I have missed her.
Unfortunately, due to surgeries, etc., I am in rather fragile condition, and I know that she's going to be nuts when she sees me.
I figure that she's going to have to be crated when in the same room with me for the first couple of days, and I don't think we can be alone together for a while.
I've always let her do things to me (paw me, lick me, flop her front paws across my legs when I'm sitting on the furniture, etc.) that I would never let her do to others, but I can see where this is going to be a problem, now.
As you might imagine, she's had little exercise and training lately - probably the last five or six weeks.
Any suggestions on how to reintegrate her back into my space?
And your prayers would be greatly appreciated, too.
