The Last of the Season
Other than some onions and beets, I put the garden to bed today. These are the last fresh veggies of the season. Lots of tomatoes, some peppers, and I had a boat load of celery.
Today we had our appointment with Coco’s surgeon. Well, she does have luxating patellas, but they are only a grade 2. What has happened is she has a torn cruciate ligament. Poor thing. They gave her Metacam right away for the pain and she is a bit out of it, which is good because it’s keeping her from running right now.
Since she is a small dog our prescribed course of action is to attempt to keep her as quiet as possible. No more on the bed, which means no more flying off the bed. No more chasing squirrels, balls, or cats – can you see we will have our hands full. She has been cleared and encouraged to go back to swimming, so we are going back tomorrow. We are getting six more weeks to see if there is any recovery. If no recover – then it’s surgery.
