Finally Home

Well, I'm finally home, and I don't feel so good. My back hurts and my legs still don't work yet, so I am whimpering a lot. It makes Mommy and Daddy sad, but I can't help it. I'm trying my bestest to be calm, but I'm pretty scared. At least I'm home and not at that scary hospital anymore.

This is the pen that Mommy and Daddy set up for me in the livingroom. It is right next to the Christmas tree. Mommy says that having me home is almost the best Christmas present ever. (The best would be to make my legs work again.)

In my pen I have an orthopedic bed and some grass to go potty on, and my favorite yellow blanket. I also have my wubba. Sometimes when you are feeling sad it is good to snuggle with your wubba.

Thank you to all my DWB friends for the wonderful comments over the past several days. It has really helped me feel better. We have a long way to go, and I have to learn to do something called "rehabilitation." I wonder if that is like agility... Although I heard something about an "underwater treadmill." Surely you jest.

Resting With My Wubba,
Poppy the LBC

We are glad to hear that you are home, Poppy, and not in that scary, strange smelling hospital. You need to rest and recover. Your beans made a very nice setup for that. They are taking very good care of you.

Please don't be scared! You will see everything is going to be ok.

Soo glad you are back home! Hospital's are not good! Especially the smell. Too clean. Not natural. Anyhoo, please get to feeling better, we are still praying for you!!
Get well sugars,

Little Poppy, I am going to sing you a lullabye to listen to while you are resting to help you get better. I am very sorry that my singing voice is not too good. Here I go:

"Nighttime comes with shadows trailing;
Baby's eyes are open wide,
Watching what the twilight pale
Hides behind her purple veil.
Sleep and rest, sleep and rest,
Momma knows that sleep is best.

Sleep shall take you where the lilies
Star the quiet pool with light,
Where the winds are whistling mild,
Glad to greet a weary child.
Sleep and rest, sleep and rest,
Momma knows that sleep is best."

Please get lots of good rest so you can get better very soon.

Oh, Poppy. We are so glad you're home. You are the sweetest Christmas gift your parents could ever receive!

Get lots of rest and snuggle w/ your Wubba! You need all your strength to make a full and speedy recovery.

With love and healing licks,
Wiley & Fievel

Poppy, rest well and get well soon. I still remember the time when I was temporary paralysed last year. It was scary and stressful for both me and my hooman.

Please ask your hooman to contact my jie jie if they need any information about my recovery process.

Way to be stong, Poppy-cicle. Just do what they tell you (YES, even "in the water" stuff) and you'll get better quicker.

Pee Ess - I'm still jealous of your pee-pee pads. *sigh*

Hey, Poppy Girl!

I just heard about your surgery from Randi the lab/Newf, and wanted to come by to tell you that I'm sending you some healing goober smooches your way. It sounds like it would be hard to be quiet and in your pen, but rest up, girl. You've been through the ringer, but it sounds like you're emerging on the other side.

You could also give some goober smooches to your mama and dad from me. I bet they've been worried about you.

Maybe you could come visit me sometime in my country, GooberStan. (I'm a rescue Airedale Terrier and I have my own country you see). Take your time. You're welcome whenever you want to come by.

Your new goober friend,
