We Shall See.
Got Richie to video me doing my morning arm exercises, they may not look like much but these exercises have given me back some serious upper arm muscles.
Just before I started doing the arm exercises I had suddenly noticed that my arms had become scarily thin, and muscle seemed to be non existent.
Since I have been doing them every morning for 30 minutes, I do 12 exercises and repeat each exercise 12 times, the difference is noticeable.
It is amazing how effective the exercises are, which is excellent, as a small daily input gives me such a good return.
Today Richie got me out of bed and to the shower in a smooth and quick operation which went well.
Once in the shower he trimmed my hair, something that I find takes a long time but once it is done, it feels great and looks good too.
Spike and Marleen always do their best to be at their cutest and most playful just as Richie is busy with me, even now in his box Spike will do his best to get our attention.
Which he gets from all of us, he has been in good form and even better since his appointment with the orthopaedic vet yesterday.
Great to hear from Richie how pleased the vet was with Spike’s progress, he is about 5 days ahead of where the vet thought he would be.
Richie was given the advice to walk him as slow as possible to encourage him to walk slowly and calmly on the leg that has been operated on.
Spike being him has devised his own routine, which is he hangs back and does not keep up with Richie and then catches him up by charging on his three legs.
What can you do with a dog called Spike apart from marvel at his antics and his adaptations and his amazing spirit, he is a fine dog.
Still no sunshine today, it is cloudy, dull and cold with outbreaks of drizzly rain and no sign of the weather becoming nicer before the end of the afternoon.
Who knows it could become pleasant weather tomorrow we shall see.
