Well Patch was operated on today and it was a success, although a slightly more complex operation than anticipated. Her leg now needs to be immobile for at least two weeks and subject to as little strain as possible for a further four weeks. How do you do that with a Jack Russell? She’s a bit distressed but ok. Looks like I’m not going anywhere for probably six weeks. It will give some time for my toe to get sorted. It’s a lot less tender now than when I finished the Challenge. I may see a chiropodist about the nail soon, but it seems to have stabilised.
