More about Lacey's Condition

by sands904 on 12/5/2007 at 5:39 PM in Lacey

Well, we took Lacey into the Veterinary Specialty Clinic this morning. We had a consultation with the doctor that would be doing the surgery about the procedure and what to expect. He said that she should definitely have the surgery because her knee was pretty bad. He talked about how the cut the muscle and tendons and how they deepen the groove in the knee if needed and how they may have to file on the actual kneecap if the bone is too big to fit that groove. It all sounded horribly gross and painful, but if it will make her better I'm all for it. Then came the worst part, I had to leave her there. The nurse came to get her and I had to take off her harness so they could put on their own leash. Lacey kept trying to climb up toward my shoulder and hold on tight. Then as I handed her to the lady, she had a look of fright in her eyes that I had never seen before. I was very sad.

The doctor called a little bit ago and said she was out of surgery and awake and that everything went fine. I am sooooooooo relieved that everything went okay. It is going to be one LONG day tomorrow waiting until I get off work to go and pick her up.

More about Lacey's Adventures

by sands904 on 11/27/2007 at 6:59 PM in Lacey

Lacey is still having trouble with her leg. My husband talked with our vet yesterday and they referred us to a specialist. We are taking Lacey there next week to have a consultation and see if she really needs surgery. I believe she is going to have to have the surgery based on what I have read about this condition. Just tonight she was running and the stopped limping. I picked her up and rubbed her leg. All of a sudden something moved. I am guessing it was her knee popping back into place. I feel really helpless about this there is nothing I can really do to help her. It is heartbreaking to see her limping around. I really hope she is not in too much pain. Hopefully things will go well next week. I will keep you posted.
