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.

  • So does this mean she does not need surgery for the other thing? How involved risky is this thing? Do you like the doc? and how come your other doc didn’t catch this or is it a hard to find thing? That’s my 20 questions for the day. And by the way Madison and Daisy both got compliments from one of my pen pals who also follows my blog. She also really enjoyed all the quilt show photos. Those are getting a good deal of mileage so thanks for bearing with me as I snapped virtually every single quilt we passed. 😉
