Norman Update: Part Deux

Norman got mad when I held Wellstone, the parrot

Norman's orthopedic surgeon called this morning with their recommendation. As predicted, they believe he has a torn ACL and meniscus.

They recommend surgery as soon as possible to avoid further tearing and arthritis.

The recovery time for this surgery is 8 weeks. During that time, I will have to keep Norman's activity level to a minimum. (Easier said than done.)

Since we are in the middle of a huge basement renovation, I have decided to schedule the surgery when it is completed, or at least mostly completed.

I'm looking at early June.

Thanks for all of your well wishes. Norman & I appreciate the support!

Basement reno, day 22

You'll totally need to think out of the box to keep a french bulldog inactive. Nice that the problem is at least fixable (well sort off) poor little bugger.

Kick'n renovation effort (great to know the T-shirt arrived I just could'nt be bother hassling the good rabble folk by sending it to NZ)
