May 10, 2012

Home doesn't often operate as a verb, but sometimes it just becomes one and reverberates until it has your attention.  Maximillian made it home from the hospital around 2:00 this afternoon, and that's the way it felt to him.  

I need to get out and walk Willie and Teddy between rain showers, but I wanted to demonstrate Nurse Teddy and Nurse Willie skilled nursing techniques.

I also wanted to give you another opportunity to participate in the health and maintenance of Maximillian's foot.  Let me introduce Maximillian's two new best friends, as shown in the above photo with Willie.  They don't yet have names.  Maximillian suggested Heinrich and Fredrich to keep with the teutonic theme.  I thought he might name them Mitt and Barack, so he could remember to use one in his left hand and one in his right.  Any other thoughts for crutch names?


  1. How about "Pokey" and "Slow"?

  2. Or Hokey and Pokey, as in you put your right foot in, you take your right foot out, etc. Looks like Max is receiving first-rate care. If you can train the pups to drive, they can do your grocery shopping, as well. Hope you like doggie treats.

  3. Looks like a speedy recovery in order with the exceptional care he is getting! All the best.

  4. Click and Clack? (from Car Talk)
    Fred and Ginger? (Rogers, of course 'cause soon he'll be dancing again)
