    DefaultSaw Tessa's surgeon last night.

    Her leg isn't right. I am noticing more it giving way and she stumbles, so she is spending the day at the vets on Tuesday. The ortho vet will be back and another from the vet teaching hospital is coming down to see what they can do. My surgeon has tried to contact the N.Z. surgeon who pioneered the procedure to see what he advises.

    She is booked in for surgery to have wires put in the leg as they think this is the only to help it, but will all look at her and see what information they can find out over the weekend before they make the decision. They love my Ma Brown and trying their best to do what is best for her so can't ask for more.

    It seems it is the surgery that can do it not the fall. No point blaming anyone as it doesn't help her leg.I just hope agreeing to the surgery is the right thing. I thought the longer it is left the longer it is before she can do the things she loves, harder to do surgery later, and more risk of her doing the other one. Hearing her cry because she needs her run at the park or hike is heart breaking.
    Being on pred isn't ideal with more risk to the bone putting the wire in, and her skin is doing so well any upset will set her off again.

    My poor girl has been through so much.

    I hope whatever they decide works and Ms. Tessa heals quickly so that she can get back to the things she loves.

    Chris (((hugs))).

    I really hope that they can find something out and come up with a plan to help your wonderful girl. Is her leg collapsing on all types of surfaces or only on slippery surfaces? Lots of good thoughts.
