    DefaultGood News UPDATE at top

    Looks like his knee/leg is just sprained/strained. The vet did a thorough exam of the spine, hip and knee. His spine was fine. His hip was tender, but his knee is definitely where the problem is. She said his knee joint shows no sins of an ACL tear. There's non slippage at all. He doesn't want to extend it forward or backward. She thinks it's all muscular. He's on rest and limited exercise. He's on Deramaxx and Tramadol as needed for 10 days. If he shows no sign of improvement by next week she wants to see him again. Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts.

    Saturday morning:
    He's so much better this morning. It's amazing. Still favoring the leg, but definitely walking better. Resting better, too. He even seems to be smiling today. I'm so relieved.

    Thanks, everyone. Yes, I am so thankful. Right after I got back for the vet, I had to leave to go to a wake for a member of our Church. When I got back, I asked the SU if he'd had Buddy outside to potty. Yes, he said. Then proceeds to tell me Buddy had chased my DD's cat, Bob. Great, Buddy. I spend $130 so you can come home, down your pain medicine and chase the cat. WTG, Buddy, WTG
