yyyy... so here's the update! took him to the vet today and we were supposed to fast, no water no food, which made me think.. hmm... surgery today??? No, no sugery today. but i will tell you that fumble is probably at his worst today. when we got out of the car to go into the vets, he laid down 4 times before we even got near the door. we saw the surgeon, great guy! and i had my list of questions, all of which he answered. he explained the sugery to me, the tplo, and what they would do and everything. i have to go back every 2 weeks after the staples are out and then we track his improvement. he definately tore the left knee, right i guess is partial, but has a high probability of tearing in the next 3 months, and that's the earliest he would do the other one. he said that he does an average of 8 knee sugeries each week, and that people come from all over. there was actually a dog there from the north shore (which is all the way above boston) and they drove all the way down to the south shore for emergency sugery (poor dogs screws popped out of his leg, now that's a botched up surgery i felt so bad for him!!!).... soooo that being said, fumble is going in tomorrow morning for surgery on his left acl, the tplo sugery. we won't be able to see him tomorrow, saturday we can go visit him and then he may or may not come home on sunday, it depends on how he's walking on the other leg. so if not then he'llcome home on monday. i've already taken tomorrow and monday off as personal days, cause i'm pretty sure i won't be able to get anything accomplished anyways. i'm going to be a basketcase without him for 3 days, but if it means he can walk again then we need to do it. he really honestly isn't even walking today, fell up the one step to get on the deck.
so tomorrow after i drop him off i'm going to get lots of throw rugs with the grips on the bottoms, plus wood to make ramps for t he deck and the porch. we've already jumping proofed the porch, and i'll put the AC in there when it gets warm enough... soo that's the update. i'm a nervous wreck, but i know it's for the best. he's in so much pain right now, something has to help, anything! thanks again for all of your well wishes everyone!!
it not only means alot of me and stacy but to fumble too!!!
