Good morning all… today is a good day. Sophie had her surgery yesterday and, while the whole ‘thing’ is sad… we feel relief. We feel so very glad we didn’t lose her to the attack from the Mexican dog; glad she survived the long and challenging drive back to Canada; and glad she will very soon be back on her paws and enjoying each day. Dragging the splinted, useless leg around was beginning to tire the Princess and we feel quite certain if she misses her leg at all, she won’t miss it for long.
Our Vet called last night to say the surgery went well. He also confirmed that our decision to ‘lose’ the leg was the right one as the quadricep muscle had contracted in a big way and the leg would not bend at all. It would have been next to impossible to recreate the leg into something usable. So… we call this morning to confirm what time we get to bring our little tripawd home and our plan is to spend the next several days cuddled up on the couch watching movies.
Just wanted to let you know, as I know many of you are wondering. Hope your day goes well and you too have a ray of sunshine to enjoy. CJ
