Good News: Joey the Garden Cat to head home to THV

Good News: Joey the Garden Cat to head home to THV

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- It’s been several weeks since our sweet Joey had surgery to remove a tumor on his leg, and today all of his friends and family at the station were relieved and excited to learn that he’ll be heading back home to THV!  Here’s more from Dr. Terry Dew:

“We're here today, eight weeks after we removed Joey's tumor, his osteosarcoma, from his leg. He's done well in his rehab period. He's been away from the station and confined a little bit,  but he's done very, very well; more and more activity each day. I'm sure you've been following along on FaceBook and those posts.

He's here today and we took some x-rays. We wanted to look at the healing of the graft that we put in and his tibia itself. These are the x-rays we took today. This is from the front of the leg, and what we see, we want to make sure our plate and screws are where we put them. Everything looks nice and tight; no change there.

The Theba Thing: Biking Bliss

The Theba Thing: Biking Bliss

"The Theba Thing" is about stepping out of my comfort zone, meeting new people and trying the things that have been on my mind and heart.

In the fall of 2011, I was bitten by the bike-riding bug. I went biking at Two Rivers Park with my brother and his family visiting from Fayetteville. I knew I was going to “have to” go, because they’re big into outdoor activities.  So I rode one of their extra bikes and I absolutely had the time of my life.

I had no idea these wonderful scenic trails existed so close to where I lived. I sure have been living in a comfortable bubble, which usually means to me, where there are no bugs, no potential for bumps and scratches and plenty of air conditioning.

Nevertheless, I was hooked. I started planning how both my mother and I could enjoy bike riding together, and get my friends in on the action as well.  But first I had to convince mom that she would enjoy it as much as I did.
