Rehabilitation

Finally!

Today I start my rehabilitation to get the movement back in my right hand fingers.

It’s amazing how much we need our thumb.

Frustrating not to be able to do what I normally do, things I have done thousands of times without thinking. Like Button my pants, my bra, shirt, opening jars, taking off and putting on horse blankets… you name it! Try yourself not to be able to use your thumb….my favorite thing….writing!!!!

But slowly I have made progress, and I have to thank my children 13 and 11 years old for their amazing support. Cooking, making coffee and making me feel better (and seen and sometimes wiping off my tears)

I never thought a dog bite could create so much danger and damage! I have been lucky with all The thousands of dogs I have been working with without a scratch.

I noticed though, when dogs are coming barking towards me — and I am not prepared, I sweat!

Not good, something I truly need to work on too.

But the best thing is that Sammy( that was attacked) is home and doing wonderful. To kiss him and feel his stinky breath again.

That’s Amore!
