OT - Dog Surgery Update
Well, my baby Colorado needs to have a second surgery on Wednesday. It looks like he partially tore his patellar ligament on Friday during a fearfulness episode (that was probably the result of psychological trauma from surgery). Needless to say, I'm heartbroken for him. He has completely stopped bearing weight on his operated leg, which is what prompted us to take him back to the surgeon. His patella is not moving normally and the surgeon needs to open him up to take a look at what's going on in there. There is a chance that it can't be fixed, but surgeon said he was optimistic, even if he didn't like this situation. Of course, I'm focusing on the negative and I wish I could change that.

I think I need some xanex (sp?) or something. I can't sleep, I can't eat, I can't watch tv; pretty much the only thing I can do is knit....

Thanks everyone. We're hanging in there. I really hope everything will go well on Wednesday and he will have no further complications. Our surgeon is excellent and I feel confident in his abilities. He is one of the gentlest, nicest persons I have ever met. The complication Colorado has is one that he's only seen 2 other times, and he's been practicing for 10 years. This is one of those times where I hate for him to be "special".

One of the girls that worked at the front desk had a huge skein of baby yarn that she was using to show someone else how to cast on. Too bad I was too distraught to join in... LOL

Praying that you BOTH make it thru this ordeal. Give Colorado a hug for all of us.
