Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: Since so many of you asked, here is an update on #1. She had both ultra-sounds and x-rays yesterday. The ultra-sound showed that there is in fact nothing wrong with her tendon (phew!) but that there is still some knee-joint effusion. The knee cap also seems fine. The x-ray, however, showed a hairline fracture of the tibial plateau. She will be talking with and seeing her GP again over the next couple of days but it doesn't look like there is anything much to be done, other than let t heal. She is walking better and feeing more comfortable every day. Paws crossed that she will be well enough to go off to her big heavy horse event in Belgium next week.

I have of course been very busy, keeping her company in bed...


Making sure her breakfasts are delicious and nutritious:


Making her feel calm and peaceful:


I have also been keeping watch on the outside to make sure there are no unwanted intruders:


And one of course needs one's beauty rest in there as well...

  2. Your mission now is to make sure #1 gets her rest. You might need to crate her if she insists on cavorting about. Either that, or just pile up on top of her.

    Kisses,

  6. Take care with 1's injury, Tama. Be sure she rests the leg. That injury is in a major load bearing area. No
    exacerbation or complication wanted.

  9. Excellent work, Tama-chama. I'm sure you are the best nurse that #1 could ever have :D

  10. C'est plutôt une bonne nouvelle pour le genou. Il faut mieux une toute fine fracture du plateau tibial plutôt qu'un problème ligamentaire ou tendineux qui prendrait deux ou trois fois plus de temps pour guérir.
    Continue comme ça Tama ... tu es une parfaite gardienne-infirmière...

  11. I'm glad to hear that #1 is healing, and that it is nothing too awful. Make sure she rests up and does not get too active too soon - that will hamper healing! You know humans, always trying to rush getting better. ;-)

  22. Very smart Tamt. The first thing to learn is to take care of yourself so
    you can help #1.

  26. We are glad its not more serious! We are sending healing purrs to #1, but the best medicine is to snuggle up with a couple purring kitties. We're sure you are all doing everything you can.

  27. Doing a great job on the nursing routine.

  28. We join the others in saying we hope #1 heals well, and to really look after that tibia. In the long run it should lay her up much less than a tendon would have, but she should rest rest rest!
