A torn Quad muscle+2 Crutches+Butler=A whole new experience!
So now I am hobbling around on crutches, it is just fantastic....and yes that is sarcasm. A few weeks ago I played in a soccer game and pulled a muscle in my thigh. So trying to be all tough and manly I "played through the pain". This resulted in my current condition, AKA a torn quad. The funny part(kinda funny, I see the funny in everything) I went to the doctor on Thursday to have them tell my mother I was fine and could play. Instead the doctor walked into the room and asked if I had any crutches at home....hmm, not the response I wanted. So now I am on crutches with a sore leg, which is not so awesome. Butler has decided that he HATES the crutches, yes you heard right, I have an assistance dog who doesn't like medical equipment. Thankfully he is getting used to them. I have learned a few lessons through having crutches and a pup! 1. My short 1 foot leash is so much easier than using the 6 or 4 ft leash. 2. I never understood how useful the UP and LAP command were. These commands make it so much easier to put the gentle leader and cape on and grab his leash when I drop it. 3. People give me funny looks with the dog and crutches, I now *slightly* understand the looks people with disabilities get from the public. Pretty much having a puppy and being on crutches is really hard. I can't wait till I'm off them!!!
