Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Daisy, the Havachon Nurse

on April 28, 2014

S-l-o-w-l-y but steadily, I can see small improvements in my back and the quality of my days. Little things like being able to move each leg an inch more forward when walking, taking more of a step rather than a shuffle, and slowly (and weirdly) getting myself down onto and up off the floor rather than DH having to lower and lift me up are all good signs of improvement. Where I saw a dark permanent dead end threeΒ weeks ago, I’m now seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. πŸ™‚

Daisy is the one member of our little family who is happy that my recovery will take so long. For one thing, she has company all day, every day.

Even better, she has a floor buddy several times a day. Lots of cuddling and snuggling as well as a 109-pound cushion to lie on.

Yep, that roll underneath the blanket is me!

As soon as I get into floor position, she hops on top of me to make sure I’m okay. And this is what I see….

Helloooo, Mommy! Just checking to make sure you're okay!

Helloooo, Mommy! Just checking to make sure you’re okay!

Here, she demonstrates how to keep a floor bed warm for her mommy.

Can we keep this here even after you're all healed?

And here’s where she discovered that the doubled-over “pillow” area of the sleeping bag is even cushier than the rest of it. The softer the better for our little girl!

Ooooo, cushy-soft!

Ooooo, cushy-soft! You don’t need this right now, do you?

Thank you all for your good wishes! Your positive thoughts have helped and your messages have kept me company as I live these weeks “off the grid”, so to speak!

    When I saw the second pic, my first thought was that it was worth of it. My second thought was that it is not the proper thing to say after such an injury and long healing process πŸ™‚

    It’s so good to hear that you are improving – albeit slowly, but it’s still progress and it looks like Daisy is there to help and encourage you every step of the way.

    Oh no, just read about your tumble and it gave me the shivers as I have also had my share of back trouble. Do hope you keep making good progress and that Daisy continues to be a loving nurse.

  9. Glad you are getting better! Wonderful pictures of sweet Daisy!

    Daisy, you’re such a wonderful nurse to your Mom, keep up the great work buddy!

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚

      I’ll be by her side – or lying on her – until she’s all better. In fact, I hope she keeps lying on the floor even after she’s all better! πŸ˜‰
