You know how people always say " It's gonna get worse, before it gets better."? I think that must be what's happening here. At least, I hope it is, 'cause Poodie was doing pretty good yesterday. Today, not so much.  Today is the day where she starts to wonder if something isn't seriously wrong, since she still can't lie down on a bed, and her bad leg is refusing to follow her brain's commands. Plus she has no appetite, and might possibly have a case of thrush in her mouth.

For her previous surgeries, we had therapists coming by frequently, whom we could ask "Is this normal?" This doctor, however, doesn't feel therapy after hip replacement is warranted. He just gives you exercises to do on your own, and says "Come back and see me in a week." Since our appointment isn't until Thursday, I'm guessing we'd better put a call in to her doctor's office -- see if they can allay some of her fears. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day.
