Weekly Update August 6, 2022

August 6, 2022

Welcome to this week’s UPDATE at Lamgo Farms. I’m so happy you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening with our family, farm and furry friends this week.

I know it’s been a good while since I’ve updated the blog for you. Thank you so much for your patience in waiting for me. It’s been almost three weeks now since my spinal surgery. I am home from the hospital and recovering.

Unfortunately, I started feeling better and was up and participating in our puppy pick up for Emerald’s litter when I apparently did too much. I’ve aggravated the nerves and muscles which has left me with constant muscle cramping all the way down my back down on to my toes. It’s incredibly painful.

I’m still on narcotics for pain but that is something that will be going away even if the pain does not. Because of drug abuse, those of us needing pain medication are left to deal with pain without help. I’m terrified of what I will do after my bottle becomes empty.

My surgeons are still happy with the surgery and with the help of steroids and anti-inflammatory meds, they are hopeful I’ll get back on track. I received a huge lecture from my main surgeon who reminded me I am only allowed to be up on my feet about thirty minutes at a time.

Yeah, all of you moms are laughing with me right now. Besides the pain from the actual spinal fusion, this surgery required us to use an access surgeon who opened up my stomach, moved all of the organs out of the way so my spinal surgeon could work on the back. Learning a little more about how they performed the fusion has helped me to understand why I need to be gentle and patient with my body.

The first week was pretty rough. I’m required to wear my back brace for the next six weeks. I’m also not allowed to bend over, twist or lift anything over 5 lbs. Luckily our puppies are all under 5 lbs while here!

I’m usually so busy with puppies, owners, kids and cleaning that I really haven’t had much time to think about my limitations. My focus has been on puppy picking, learning to use my grabber to pick up things off the floor, and pain management.

Today was the first time my limitations really bothered me. I had one of my littles pick up a puppy and bring her to me. She didn’t care that my hair was a mess or that I was still wearing the same t-shirt I had on two days ago. She was happy to see me and as though she knew I was injured, she snuggled her little head right under my chin as to give me a big emotional hug. It was exactly what I needed in that moment.

For those who have reached out, prayed or sent well wishes. . .thank you so very much! You have no idea how grateful I am for you.

Speaking of these little fluff balls. . .I have been concentrating on my recovery and have dropped the ball on those inquiring about our doodles. We have seven mini Goldendoodle and one petite Double Doodle available to go home next week. The Double doodle is a little girl. I have 3 female mini goldendoodles and 4 males.

Those interested please text me at 817-366-7995. The puppies are priced at $1950. A $250 deposit is required to hold a puppy. We won’t be able to entertain visitors this week as we will be flying puppies as well as sending puppies home; but you certainly can visit with the puppies when coming for pick up.

Before my surgery I inseminated several of our litters for our Fall puppy season. If successful, puppies will be going home early to mid November. Those bred are listed below. Once we confirm pregnancy I will ask for deposits for picking spots.

Now for a little housekeeping. . .
