I haven't posted too much, but I am thinking about you guys, hoping Andy's swelling is improving and the antibiotic is working!

Boy taking their temperature is a learning experience. Hannah was not happy about it, but we managed. When I was checking her for fever, the Dr asked me to take it morning and night for a few days - he didn't say it, but I suspect in case there was user error on the part of the "temp taker" (me ).

It's good news that his appetite is still strong though

Thanks

Sorry I haven't been around much this week. Earlier this week I was on a dark stretch of freeway heading to a singer-songwriter friend's house out in the country NW of Nashville and hit a bumper laying in the freeway. Made a huge bang. Completely blew out the sidewall of the rear right tire and cracked the alloy rim. Luckily it didn't do any body or undercarriage damage. Very dark and cold and not a lot of room to work with on either side of the car. Small jack, small spare. Got the car home last night. It could have turned out a whole lot worse. Thank goodness for guardian angels

Lessons learned: Carry a full sized spare in the trunk and use my brand new 2 ton hydraulic jack that's now in the trunk. That little scissor jack collapsed, but fortunately I had the lug nuts on the spare tightened enough. Oh, and have a bright flashlight. Trying to change a tire in pitch darkness is for idiots ... like me LOL

Andy has several more days of antibiotic to take, which means no walks or runs. The swelling has been down for a few days. His left front ankle still feels warmer to the touch than the right, but it's much improved from a couple of weeks ago. There is another antibiotic they can try to finish off whatever is inflaming his leg and especially his ankle if this 20 days of Clava don't work completely. As swollen and warm to the touch as his ankle and leg were, it was really, really infected and inflamed. This could be as a result of his paw injury a few weeks ago.The left is still just a little warmer than the right ankle, so there's some inflammation going on there still, but still improving. I'm getting Andy the last of his McNuggets from the gift card a kind soul from here sent him

Andy's leg continues to get better so he can resume having fun. He's got to be bored to death. No exercise or out of the yard activities the past few weeks, only once since he hurt his paw, then he started limping again and all this leg stuff flared up. It's cold enough to go walking trails by the lake and in parks around here. I'm hoping he gets all better by the end of this round of antibiotics and that it doesn't return as soon as he's off of them due to a suppressed immune system. We'll see. So far everything has turned out as well as could be hoped for. I have no reason to believe it will be any different now.

A sweet soul from GRF sent Andy and Katie freshly baked home made dog cookies that arrived today. There were waggy tails all over the place.

I am glad you are okay considering blowing out your tire. You could have had a serious accident.
I would be so helpless if I had a flat or blew out a tire, lol. I am glad I have Onstar

I am glad that Andy is responding well to the antibiotics and I hope he will be able to go for walks very soon

Your tire ordeal sounds very scary. So glad you're okay, and got the tire changed without further injury.

I hope your boy is better soon. Tell him his pal Tesia over here is very sympathetic as her person also seemed to forget how much she loves parks and hiking in the woods for a good three weeks. "When have we ever just walked to the crescent and back??!!!" She is also very interested in getting to know those chicken McNugget things you get so often, now that she has tasted the food of humans. She says you're pretty lucky you get so many treats.

Get better soon, Andy!

So happy to hear that Andy is improving, and the home made cookies that someone sent for them sound lovely!

Glad that you're okay after your tyre trouble, scary stuff!
