No news is good news! I’m happy to report that Riley’s most recent x-rays looked “awesome” (as the surgeon put it). We’re still limiting her activity a little, trying to keep her from jumping too much, etc., but overall, she seems great.
We’re working on getting Riley to lose a few pounds, since she was pretty sedentary for several months, which is a little tricky because she can’t overdo it–we don’t want to stress her implants and the bones they’re attached to. But the extra weight isn’t good for her hardware, either, so we keep her exercise moderate and are feeding her a little less. However, as one of the vet techs said, “She fell out of a third story window. She’s doing pretty darn well.”
