Last Tuesday though he woke up with his good knee too sore to stand on, and with BoaB away I had to carry him down the stairs (I still can't believe I managed it), get to work, phone for a home visit vet, change appointments, get back home for the vet. Of course I drove the car so I could cope with all this, and although he came good really quickly with a pain killer and muscle relaxant, I drove the car the next couple of days as well so I could get to other appointments and check on Rusty, and generally leave as late and get home as early as possible.
It has been years since I have driven a car for 3 days in a row. So I lived 3 days like all the 'normal' people who clog up the roads and I have to say, they can have it. I am over it. My last appointment of the week was Thursday, at my own Doctor's. "Your blood pressure is a bit high" she says. !!! Well I drove here in the CAR, of course my blood pressure is up! I am stressed OUT! And I haven't ridden my bicycle for 3 DAYS! "Well you had better get back on it soon".
So Friday Rusty was looking bright as a button, so I rode to work. Saturday was a good coffee ride, and I am starting to feel like a real normal person again. My kind of normal I mean.
