K had her surgery late this afternoon, and it just ended. The surgeon repaired a ruptured tendon in her paw that had caused one of her middle two toes to stick upward at an awkward angle.
K will be in a splint for 6 weeks and will do only very minimal walks while the tendon heals in the splint. That will be a tough 6 weeks for both of us.
Today is K's birthday so before I took her to the surgeon, we did a sunrise short hike.
A little later in the day, still before we'd departed for the surgeon's office, I saw a beautiful rainbow as I rode my bike. It seemed to follow me, as I rode from west to east. If there was a pot of gold, it was following me too! (Notice the soaring hawk in the first photo - he seemed to be following me too!)
DVR wondered what a vision like this means. I hope that it means good things for all of us, especially K.
Thanks so much for all of your good wishes - they mean SO much to me. K will come home tomorrow. I'll be doting on her!
