Hi gang. Sorry about being MIA. I've been traveling with business and Thanksgiving for the past 9 days. Murphy was surrendured to us last Saturday and he's been settling in. He had one run in with a golden retriever that he didn't care for, but so far, he's doing well. He's spent the last 9 days with a vet tech and he'll be coming tomorrow to my house.
On Wednesday, he was neutered, microchipped, and he had both shoulders and elbows x-rayed while he was sedated. My vet and Murphy's original vet are actually good friends, so they have been in constant conversation about his diagnosis. His owners never took more x-rays than just his left shoulder, so we don't know if it's a unilateral thing or a bilateral thing. The films are being sent to MSU tomorrow for a thorough reading, as well as to be compared to the original films.
At this point, I do believe with the checks we have had mailed in to us, we are now at our goal!!!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
So many people helped make this a reality. Now, we just need to figure out when to get him to Paul. :-D
I'll post pictures when he arrives here tomorrow.
Again, I thank you so much for all of your generosity, your love, and your support for this handsome young man.
