be taking Boo in for her ACL surgery. I am stressing out over this. My stomach is flipping, I am just so nervous about it. I feel like crying. Any suggestions from you to make getting through this any easier????
***Well, once he put Boo under and could really check her knees out, he recommended that an anti-inflamatory is the way to go at this time. He doesn't think she has any real damage but mostly inflammation. He also x-rayed her hips to rule out a hip problem and found that she has some HD in her hips. Nothing extreme at this time but she will probably have arthritis in her hips and knees as she ages. Right now tho, he thinks we need to monitor her rather than jump into surgery that may not be needed. I haven't gotten to talk at length with him but will when I pick her up in an hour or so. Whew, I have been a mess through this.
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers and support. You are a wonderful group and I thank God you are there for me and everyone else you all help.
Pray. That's what I did with Frankie's neuter lastweek.
I hope and pray that Boo will have a successful surgery and a quick recovery. Will be thinking of you tomorrow.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Good thoughts for you and Boo.
I second that. And prayers and good thoughts for a successful surgery and very speedy recovery!Originally Posted by jzgrlduff
good thoughts for a great surgery. Take it one day at a time. That's what I did. Don't look at the far off point, but just at one day at a time Recovery will go by quicker than you think.
