I've been remiss here on the blog. I have not kept you all up to date on the state of Jenny's limping situation. Despite our successfully keeping her quiet and . . . inactive. . . her limping has actually worsened in the three week period of healing.
A return visit to the vet yesterday revealed . . . a ruptured cruciate ligament in her knee. With possible bonus miniscus damage! (Not severe enough 3 weeks ago to catch on X-ray day; now. . . painfully obvious.)
Jenny is in surgery this morning. Her prognosis is good, although recovery is long. After a 2-week post-surgical recovery, she will have physical therapy AND a 4-month leash restriction. . . with 4 additional months of recovery restrictions I can't quite think about yet. All I can say is . . . thank goodness winter is coming! I can't fathom going through these severe restrictions in the warm months, full of light.
So. Please send cheery, healing, dog-thoughts Jenny's way!
