Dr. Devall is wonderful & Tate enjoys his visits with her.....I was right when I suspected his pelvis was higher on one side, I know my dog!! Dr. Devall did some pushing & stuff to fix it, do you like my technical explanation!!, his ligament that is attached to the pelvis has tightened do to his injury, ie: Kort flying into him & sending him rolling!...he has been favouring the one side so now it is bigger/thicker/tighter ?, something like that! So we will still have to see Dr. Devall again as it is something that can't be fixed in one visit. Luckily, she will be attending the regional agility trials here in 2 weeks, so I claimed a spot with her ! Tate also had acupuncture & laser therapy on his hip. This will promote healing. I have a ton of exercises & stretches I need to do on him everyday too. We also came home with some Chinese herbs to boost his immune system into gear. I am so thrilled these vets exist, I know this really helps Tate.
So after getting some parting instructions on how to find the McLeod Trail, I headed out. I did find it, however, I somehow managed to get myself heading north instead of south!! Have I mentioned all the one way streets!!! After an hour of circling & sight seeing LOL!, I even got to see China Town, whoo hoo !!!!, not !!, I found my way south.
But wait, the fun was just beginning!, as I was doing my circles, I noticed this funny grinding type noise every time I turned my steering wheel.....I knew this was not good, so as soon as I could I pulled into a garage station & pulled out my handy dandy guide to owning an aerostar. I found out that I could be low on power steering fluid....soooo, I look under the hood to find the power steering thinga ma jiggy, & pull out the dip stick, yes, dip stick!! Ha, it was low, so, into the garage station I go & purchase some power steering fluid, I maneuver my arm into the burning hot engine & fill it up. Gosh, I felt sooo butch!!! Works like a charm now, no more grinding noise! As Wendy would say, " I am woman, hear me roar" !!!
It's been a long day!, but a great day!, I'm tired, can you tell??
Ok, I'll leave you with pictures of Tate this morning as we were about to leave. He looked happier on the way home! My intention was to take pictures in the clinic but I forgot to bring the camera in, oh well!
