A few days ago we were basking in 70 degree temperatures. My mind was already planning for the garden and the planting of spring flowers. Today everybody is home because of a snowstorm. Welcome to winter in Virginia!
Kitty (name still to be determined) and I accurately predicted this snowfall. When the sun began to set I could tell that she was uncomfortable. Considering that she is less than two weeks post amputation, she is doing remarkably well. Yesterday was the first time I sensed any discomfort, affirming my worry that she was also going to experience phantom pain.
While Kitty and I settled into warm blankets to sooth our phantom leg/ paw issues, the boys hoped for one more snow day. Their wish was granted, and they will be able to enjoy a long weekend. I would bet that this is the last one for the year, but with this crazy winter you can't be sure.
