Update: Mom’s Surgery

Standard

I meant to post for Motivation Monday and also make a new content post on Tuesday, but life’s been a little crazy! Mom had her total knee replacement surgery on Monday morning at about 7am. Things went great! The surgeon says that she looks like a million bucks and her therapist anticipates a great recovery; however, it has been a little hectic around here. Stick with me while I get back on track tomorrow with Work in Progress Wednesday! I’m making some headway!

In other news, we had some big breakthroughs with the dogs this week. Since mom is on a walker, we had to take down the baby gate that separated Maggie and Oskar. He had shown some aggression towards her and I thought it was best to keep them apart for awhile. This week, they’ve been together a lot and they’ve done really well! I totally attribute this to our work with Jaimee Flinchbaugh of Forever a Keeper dog training. Here’s a link to her Facebook page (she’s also a professional photographer — see attached picture of Maggie from when she graduated obedience school!)

Anyway, that’s all for now. Today looks like it’s going to be just as busy as the previous days but I’m so glad that everything is going well for mom. We have many adventures to have yet!
