Today's the day of the second surgery and I'm so scared. I'm really hoping and wishing and thinking all sorts of good thoughts that the surgeon can find the best way to repair Colorado's ligament.

I'll update as soon as I can.

OT - Dog Surgery Update - Round 2
Well, we are back home from surgery and Colorado is sound asleep (sleeping off anestesia). He doesn't seem like a happy camper at all, but then again, look at what he's been through...

He had torn his patellar tendon cleanly off the bone. It is a really rare injury, but our surgeon did the best he could with the repair. His leg is now in a splint, which will remain on for 2 months, give or take a couple weeks. Quote from our surgeon a few minutes ago when he called to check on us "The surgery went the best it possibly could have."

So, I'm not going to jinx anything, but we are hanging in there. I did have a minor breakdown, but DH is taking care of me and I know everything will be fine.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! They really mean a lot to me.

P.S. This surgeon and his staff have been so wonderful that I am going to have to knit some blankies for the doggies when they come out of recovery.

Hi everyone,

I think everything is still going fine. I ended up taking Colorado back to the vet because I thought the bandage on his splint was too loose since his knee was moving a little bit, but they said it was fine and he's right where he should be 2 days out of surgery, so that was a relief to hear!

I had a minor heart attack on the way to the vet's when he bent his knee (or it looked like he bent his knee) through the splint. I was sure he had torn the surgical repair... LOL But the nurse told us that it should be fine and a little movement isn't going to cause too much damage and they can't totally immobilize the knee. Here's hoping that the repair job is still holding strong and will totally heal!!!!!

So, while I can't totally be at ease with the situation, I guess it is the best it can be given the circumstances. Now, why can't I stop worrying?? I'm sipping at a beer, in the hopes that it will help me loosen up! (It's not working...)

I also started my first pair of clogs for my dh (since he's been so patient with me and Colorado through this whole ordeal), and I think they are one of the only things keeping me sane at this point! :XX: :XX: :XX:
