So much has gone on the last couple of weeks I don't even know where to start! I officially threw the crutches away a week ago and so far everything is going well, besides stiff muscles. I go once a week for Physio , and let me tell you it's not pleasant, so much for a nice relaxing message- it's 2 hours of PAIN!!! hahaha. I haven't ventured into the gym yet, but I am hoping to go back tomorrow. The problems with my hip inspired me to do a challenge about something I dislike about myself, and I came up with this, a bit dramatic I know, but at the time when I found out about the Avascular Necroses it was very scary!
We are missing Jackson terribly, our lives are so quiet without him, even our friends who come over say that it is just not the same without Jackson attempting to climb on their laps, or haring around with the kids. Besides, we always felt so safe with him around, he was our protector and because of Mark's job, he is away often and I just don't feel safe anymore without my protector. I did some looking around to find another Cane Corso , never to replace Jackson, but to try to fill this big hole left in our lives. The happy news is we have bought a new pup from the USA,(Avalanche Kennels- link in left hand margin) he is only 4 weeks old, he will be flown to South Africa when he is 8 weeks old. He is one of these, I could never choose between them so I have asked the breeder to choose for me(taken at 3 weeks)
Another exciting thing to happen, especially for the guys, is that our rugby team, The Sharks, won the Currie Cup!! We got together for a party, along with Kim (of KimB Designs fame) and family. Long before Kim and I met we used to laugh and talk about our Pink Drinks, well we finally had them together!
My life has been threatened , so these are the milder ones hahaha(and excuse the blurred ones hee hee)The Guys- Kim and I realized how similar Mark and her hubby Wayne are!Doep and ElizeWe went all out with tattoos, stickers, straws...Except for Wayne, he was the only non supporter there!YAY!! The Sharks won- celebration!!!!!
