I'm not a doctor, but from all accounts Lion's surgery has not failed. I've spoken with people whose friends, relatives, acquaintances, etc. have had the same surgery and even after a year do not have the range of motion or strength that Lion has after three months. And it has only been three months plus a few days. I am anxiously awaiting the results of the MRI on Thursday so I know whether I need to go open a can of whoopass on the surgeon.
The more I think about it, the more annoyed I get. What sort of bedside manner do you have when you blame the patient and jump to such dire conclusions? I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he was having a bad day. The first time Lion saw him he said the surgeon was curt with him and not forthcoming with details about the surgery and recovery. I went to the pre-op with him and suddenly he was a friendly guy with all the answers on the world. Lion said he thought he might be afraid of me. Well, doctor, you should be afraid now. Don't make me come to this appointment with Lion. It won't end well for you.
I don't want to paint a picture of Lion as a basket case. He's not sniveling in the corner mourning the failure of the surgery. But he is worried. And when he's worried he's not horny. And I like it when he's horny. I prefer the Lion weather reports that say it's hot and steamy or tropical. When he doesn't mention sex at all, it's a sad day.
Of course, it's not all the surgeon's fault. Lion's allergies are also bad. He's itchy and it's hard to be turned on when you're scratching. Even snuggling has to be cut short when the allergies are driving him crazy.
Lion has been wild since the other night. I see no reason to cage him again since his MRI is tomorrow and he'll need to be wild for that. He's also been wearing his own underwear. That's not to say I've given up any power. Last night I caught him eating first so he will be punished for that. He admitted he was distracted and wasn't paying attention. He'll get his punishment tonight for that infraction.
Now, should it be a spanking along with a "dessert"? I don't really want to bother his skin any more by making him sit on the punishment stool. I don't really want to introduce more chemicals by soaping his mouth. That leaves just plain old corner time. Works for me!
