Here is some recovery advice from Boomers Mom.
Take time for yourself during the stress of caring for a new amputee. (Never realized how stress was impacting my energy.)
Today, I got out of the cabin. Yes, cabin fever has been a problem. Boomer is no more trouble than he has to be. The only outing we’ve had has been to the vet. So…my hubby, Robert, took me out for some fresh air and lunch. My spirits are so much better now.
During the past 9 days my entire focus has been on Super Boomer and his recovery. Sleeping, eating and getting out have not been priorities for me during this time. However, today, Robert arranged for our oldest to sit with Boomer and told me it is time to get out. (Yes, I worried about Boomer while we were gone.)
Now that I am back home, (much refreshed), I am ready to resume taking care of our Super boy with a renewed energy. Boomer senses this freshness and is all wags about it (removing some of his stress as well.)
Hope other new tripawd pawrents, take this advice and get that renewed energy.
