Having neither children nor living parents, both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are pretty much non events in the Willowtree household(s). However, that’s not to say that I don’t wish all you muthas out there a Happy Mother’s Day. Enjoy it girls, you’ve earned it.
Now, onto other news…the obligatory Belle update.
When I worked in IT, our mantra when it came to Analysis, Design and Implementation was "It’s all about managing expectations", and this was without a doubt the most important aspect of the project.
What has any of this got to do with Belle? Good questions, and I’m glad you asked… Despite some early success with getting her leg to flex just a little, it plateaued out fairly early on in the piece, which was somewhat of a disappointment to me, as I was expecting to have her leg fully functional by the time I had to take her back to the surgeon. I was also expecting the vet to be disappointed in the progress to date.
Imagine my surprise when he was unexpectedly pleased with the results. While my expectations were that I’d have her leg working by now, his expectations were that the leg would be completely rigid by now and therefore no more than a useless appendage. So I left the doggie hospital with a much lighter heart than I did two weeks ago.
