Not the best news


I'm feeling sorry for myself! (and Chesty)

He was seen for a follow-up visit this afternoon and had an x-ray of his knee. There's not been a lot of bone growth AND he has a broken screw that is used to attach the plate. The surgeon is not particularity concerned BUT is not ready to lift the activity restrictions yet.

So we have another 4 weeks of no running, playing, jumping, or stair climbing and then another visit and another x-ray.

Oh, I am so sorry. Poor Chesty. Wish there were some magic vitamins or something.

A picture is certainly worth a thousand words. I really feel for the little guy. Hopefully, 4 weeks will go as quickly for him as they seem to do for us.

Poor dog! He looks so sad! They won't have to remove or replace that screw?

Oh dear - I'm so sorry. Sending lots of positive healing thoughts and hugs to Chesty of course, and to you also. I know how much he means to both of you - just like our Shadow meant to us.

I'm so sorry! This is probably much harder for you than it is for Chesty . . although he looks pretty stressed in that picture! :)

I'm so sorry, I know you were hoping for better news. He looks so sad.... Hopefully another 4 weeks will do the trick.

Jeanice said...

Poor little thing, he's had a rough go of it. It's so hard to see your little pal feeling poorly.

Oh dear. He looks very upset with the vet. I hope he can think of it as extra cuddle time from mom.

Love you Chesty.

Poor little Chesty - his picture says it all. Give him lots of cuddles and hopefully the time will pass quickly.

Oh poor Chesty, that picture! Sure hope he begins to heal but what about the loose metal??

poor sweetie pie. Give him lots of extra TLC, Mary. He's lucky to be in a place where this kind of treatment is a possibility. I'll keep him in my thoughts.
