Labraduo Happiness

I've got to admit it. I've been staring at a blank screen with no post written for a while. The reason is that this knee pain has pushed me over the edge. My spine always hurts... but the knee is like the straw that broke the camel's back. I'll be getting an MRI early next week. At least that will tell me why my knee hurts so much and is disfigured with swelling. Fixing it will be another task altogether.

I had the Labraduo today, both halves! Normally, that's cause for happiness. And I was happy while we were out together on the trails. I just can't muster happiness right now with the backdrop of pain that I'm feeling.

Here's the Duo! R looks as carefree and joyful as ever! Shyla tried to be funny by sticking out her tongue.
Happy Saturday! I'm going to muster some happiness, have no doubt.


  1. Hari oM
    You will. Having borne pain of arthritis in almost every joint of my body since childhood (yes, spine too), I have developed a high threshold... but let there be a new pain (like the sciatica last year), and it occupies the whole focus! I understand that the MRI must feel like it's 87 weeks away right now, but no, it's more like 87 hours and that's long enough. Sending POTP to keep you going till then. YAM xx

  2. KB, we will never know why it it is that some people just have to face so many physical challenges, but I am awed by your ability to overcome each new issue as it comes your way. I am grateful that you have your duo :) Wishing you strength and relief!

  3. I am singing Happy Ears to you to the tune of Happy Trails to you from the old Roy rogers show. they look so happy. sorry you have additional pain.

  4. They sure are a happy Duo! We hope your knee gets better so you can feel happy too.

  5. We're sorry to hear you are in so much pain. At least you have the labraduo to help lift your spirits.

  6. I'm sorry you're dealing with so much pain right now. I only (very minimally) began to understand chronic pain when I had carpal tunnel syndrome for four months. After a time I no long consciously thought about the aching and throbbing, and the electric shock pains from touching something would surprise me. But there was always that low-level malaise, and I saw it clearly when it began to lift, after my surgery.

    I really hope the best for you.

  7. Round up that happiness, the Duo will help heaps!!! Once the MRI is done, hope that you will have a better idea of what the HUGE problem is. Pain is insidious, and on top of your spine, too much. But, as always, your words tell of inner courage and strength galore. I hope some sunshine days, with snow lingering on the tops, will help these days along.

  8. Life is throwing you too many curve balls, KB. We are sending you lots of healing vibes! Shyla and R are sure happy pups!

  9. Hope you get that sorted soon...painful knees are no fun.

  10. I'm so sorry about your pain. Fingers crossed they can help the knee at least.

  11. I was fighting migraine this last week, and it is SO hard to function or feel enthusiastic about anything when you don't feel well or are in pain. We hope they can get it figured out quickly so you can be on the road to recovery soon.
