Got back from the ortho doc a little while ago.
Java has a partial CCL tear in BOTH her rear legs.
Her first TPLO surgery is Monday.
Her second TPLO surgery, on the other knee will be 8 weeks later.
I just got done crying hysterically.

I am so sorry this has happened and that you have to go through this. I can't imagine the worry.

I am so, so sorry. Moka, now Java, you are really being tested. You are in my prayers and thoughts.

Oh my gosh, you poor thing. I am so sorry. I am really glad you got the insurance when you did.

Thanks guys...I probably wouldn't be such a mess about it if not for everything we have already gone through with Moka and her broken leg and surgeries. It's just been one thing after another with no break in between, which is what is so hard. Moka is not even off crate restriction yet...she still has 2 more weeks. So they'll both be on crate restriction for a week, then Moka will be out.
We haven't had the pet insurance for that long, so cross your fingers that they will cover both surgeries!!

I'm sorry, this has certainly been a rough couple of months for all of you. Hang in there, hopefully the pet insurance will come through - it's great that you got it.

On the bright side, if you believe that bad things come in threes, there's your third so you're done!
