As you know I went to Dr. Eddie on Friday to they could take pictures of my shoulder to see if I have OCD, Osteochondritis Dissecans, a disease of the cartilage.
Momma would not feed me breakfast. I did not understand this. I mean, I eat breakfast at 4:30 in the morning and here it was already 7:30 and NO breakfast.
"Momma I know it is Friday and that day I let you sleep in until 5:30, but we have been up for 2 hours now and there is no breakfast in my bowl. What gives?"
"Bud you can't have anything to eat or drink until after you appointment with Dr. Eddie."
"What you talkin' about momma?"
Well we got to Dr. Eddies and I waited with momma in the exam room.
The wait wasn't long, but since momma didn't feed me my breakfast I thought it best to take a nap while we waited. I mean I DID NOT HAVE breakfast! I did not want to faint.
Finally Dr. Eddies nice helper peoples came in and stuck me in the butt with a needle, and I fell a sleep. I DO NOT know why they had to wake me up to stick a needle in me so I would go to sleep. I was ALREADY sleeping!
They took my pictures and then brought me back out to my momma and laid me on the floor so I could wake up while Dr. Eddie looked at the pictures they took of me. Then Dr. Eddie came out and showed momma my pictures and explained it all to her.
This is my shoulder. You see where my shoulder joint meets? That white half circle on the bottom is white with the darker part right above it. If I had OCD then that white part would be black. So that means I do not have OCD!
I was still a bit sleepy as Dr. Eddie showed momma more pictures of me. Let me just say, while Dr. Eddie is a GREAT doctor he is no photographer. If momma wanted more pictures of me she should just ask Dr. Liz (who has taken the most bestest photos of me) to take some more.
Anyway then Dr. Eddie showed momma a picture of my elbow. What you see in this picture is my elbow joint. There is that round circle part and above to the left you see that part that is sort of rough and jagged. That should be smooth. What does this mean you ask? Well it means at the age of two I have arthritis in my left elbow. Not to big of a deal, not compared to OCD. I will just take joint supplements.
Momma says I have to tell you this part of the story even if it is embarrassing for me. While Dr. Eddie was telling momma about my elbow, momma was petting me. Then I sort of came to a little bit and I heard Dr. Eddies voice, opened my eye and it scared me so much that protective barked and I pooped a little. Dr. Eddie literally scared the poop out of me. Thank the Lord above momma didn't take a picture of that.
Then momma took me home. I was still seeing dancing rainbows and dragons. That sleepy shot sure does make a guy see strange things. But I did remember that momma said after my appointment that we would stop by the magic cheeseburger window.
Momma always keeps her promises. I have heard about these cheeseburgers and now I get a whole cheeseburger all to myself!!!!
Now I am wondering, "why is this not on my menu everyday?"
After my cheeseburger, momma laid down next to me and we took a nap together. I'm not sure if momma was seeing and dreaming of dancing rainbows and dragons, but I still was. Thank you dear friends for all your well wishes, good thoughts, POTP, and prayers. Next time you see me I am sure I will be in the wilds having an adventure with momma and my pal Bert.
