Prayer Request

Last night, Mom and Dad took Nanuq to Central State Hospital, in Petersburg, Virginia for Dog Therapy. Nanuq enjoyed his visit. He spent time with lower functioning patients. He walked from one to another sharing furry love with each of them.

While Mom and Dad were gone, my leg began to hurt. My human brother gave me 1.5 tramadol. I am prescribed 2.5 (50mg) every twelve hours when needed. I was miserable and when Mom and Dad arrived home at 9:00 pm I let them know how I felt.

I whined and barked at Mom, grabbing at her hand. Mom knows when I act in this manner it means I am in pain and she needs to do something. Mom quickly assessed my leg. She realized I was not using my right rear leg at all and it was a little warm to touch. Mom gave me 1 tramadol. Mom knew I needed the full dose.

After laying in Mom's arms for about 2 hours I began to feel some relief. During the night I whined a few times as I changed positions, but slept well in between.

Mom is working today. Dad helped me into our SUV via my doggie ramp and off we went to see my favorite doggie doctor, Dr. Richard Jordan.

After my exam, Dr. Jordan prescribed an anti-biotic and a different pain medicine. He, too felt inflammation in my knee.

Please pray my knee becomes stronger. I hate pain and Mom and Dad hate watching me in pain.

Thank you, my prayer warrior friends. You guys are awesome. I am amazed you love and follow me.

Woofs and Wags,
