Saw Dr. Root and his staff, who flocked around him and smothered him with love, as usual What a great crew! Dr. Vancil (Andy's oncologist) called before I left and sent the X-rays they took last Thursday to Dr. Root, who looked at them before we got there. He agreed there's definitely no break or hairline fracture.

Dr. Root pulled Andy's two middle toes apart and said, "see that purple? He got himself bruised pretty badly there and it's probably bruised the bone too. He'll need to stay as limited as possible for a week to give it a chance to heal. It probably hurts like the dickens, which I have first hand knowledge of since I did the same thing to myself years ago. It's still tender when I'm wearing rubber boots in the barn and step on something." So, nothing serious, just painful right now.

Looking at his chart, Andy's 'gotcha day' is February 5th, 2003, the day after my birthday. 10 years ago this coming February. Dr. Root marveled at how well Andy's doing otherwise. We talked about Andy's first and second visits. I took Andy there to meet everyone the day after I adopted him (they also took care of Trevor and Henry, the two senior rescues with cancer). Andy was so busy kissing them and squirming with boundless happiness Dr. Root couldn't get his heart or respiration rates. LOL Before I took him back the 2nd time I taught Andy to 'get an exam', to which he throws himself all the way on his back and spreads his legs .. with tail thumping in between them. Worked today like a charm, although with Andy on a double dose of Tramadol he laid down and just lifted his front and back legs without getting all the way on his back.

Anyhoo, Andy's looking at a week of laying around half looped on a double dose of Tramadol (an opiate). I wonder if he'll ask me to get him bags of Doritos and Cheetos when I go to the store

Danny you know with those eyes that Andy sure will be asking you for Doritos and Cheetos. hard to resist those eyes. Get lots of rest Andy and feel better soon. I'm glad it's nothing serious although I'll bet it hurts like the dickens

Ya, with the double opiates Andy's on I may as well see if I have "Wayne's World" and "Up In Smoke" on DVD for Andy to watch as he lounges on the couch with glassy eyes munching Doritos and Cheetos.

If he starts calling me from the couch when he wants something ala "Hey, duuuuuuuude, bring me a Coke, man" I'll regale him with anecdotal stories about the mid to late 70's in Southern California.

Too funny!
I can just picture Andy lounging all loopy, seeing pink elephants. What a trip Man, lol.
I wish Andy a speedy recovery and that the Tramadol keeps his pain controlled.

Ouch Andy, Ouch! Please take it from the Tobynator, the sooner you let it rest and heal, the faster you'll be out and about and forgetting about this little setback. I hope you heal quickly Andy!! Go easy on the Doritos so they don't come back and haunt you!!
