you're welcome i'm doing ok, dealing with the dog who had the knee surgery is a 24/7 job though she is so tired of being locked up in the crate, and she HAS to move around a little and put pressure on the leg, the problem is she's a terrier, and she doesn't know what taking it slow is i actually have to give her sedatives every day, so she's somewhat calmed down. when she's out of the crate i have to keep her on a leash so she doesn't jump around. i sleep like that too, with her leashed to me (my husband thinks i'm nuts). she is finally allowed to go outside for short walks in less than 3 weeks... and i. can't. WAIT.
