NOT QUITE ALL THERE YET ....

Benji stays pretty quiet so I can get a few minutes of bunny time. Got to be awful still with that left arm for about 4 weeks. Here I am 4 1/2 days into it! The lydocaine pump ran out after a bit more than 2 days and I'm to a percoset pill every 3 or 4 hours now. Magic, those are, but I'm pretty cautious about that stuff.

I can sleep about 1 1/2 hours at a time and sort of wander the night away! 10 rabbits, a refrigerator, a thermostat controlled propane heater, a huge herd of calving cows down the road, plenty of coyotes on a moonlit night, and a 100 plus car freight about 5 miles away making two runs a night do provide interesting sounds.

Lot's of fine care from BL ... bless her bunny-luvin' heart!

Couple more days will make a big difference .. thanks for all the cheer-ups! I've been reading blogs, but no writing yet .. still just one hand useful.....

Looks like you've got a little bunny therapy going on there. Nothing like a bunny to get you hopping around soon!

Benjy; therapy healing bun, he looks like he is working hard. Do feel better soon, RG, though I am sure BL is an excellent nurse. If she wants she can Email me for easy Chinese home remedies for faster healing....

As you wander the house at night listening to the train, you should play some Willie Nelson or Johnny Cash. Yay, Benji--a sweet bun who doesn't jostle the bad arm. Get well soon, RG.

Do you know how you messed up your rotater cuff originally?

Benji you are sooo cute. We are furry happy that your human slave is healing nicely. We hope you are patient with him.

aww i'm glad he's still enough so you can safely hold him. yeah you take it easy as long as you should, it's always smart to take the medicine ahead of the pain rather than chasing it. stay warm and get well soon!
