What he did discover was cancer. That required another surgery on her hind leg plus one on her front leg because it's gotten into the lymph glands there. Weird, right?
Ever since then, her back leg has been great. I have to say my Vet here is a good one. Her front leg, not so much.
Terrible picture, but you can kind of see it has returned on her front leg. A trip to the Vet yesterday confirmed my thoughts about it blowing out (causing irreparable damage) if we don't do another surgery. It's only been a year since the last one.
So this morning, my poor baby girl doesn't get any breakfast. Making it worse, even though I tried to sleep in, Cooper was having none of it and we got up earlier than normal. At the moment, they are both looking up and begging for food, wondering what the heck happened to Mom.
Boy do I hate going through this again. These are my kids and I don't do well when they are in pain. The Doc promised to give me lots of pain pills along with that HUGE bill. I'm going to need them more than Jessie.
Wish us luck ... I'm getting out every lucky charm I've ever owned and lining them up on the table. I'll drop her off this morning and pick her up Friday morning.
On the upside, Cooper's heart worm/flea and tick/worm medicine was $98 for one year. I'm sorry, but that's just ridiculous! But I paid it because they are my babies. THIS time I decided to drop the flea/tick part since I haven't noticed any fleas or ticks in the last three years, for a savings of $40. Almost half!!
In the last bit of news, third time's the charm, after the first ten tries. I finally got the outside security light control switch to work correctly, turning on at night and off during the day. WOOHOO!! I've no idea what I did really, but it's working and that's all that counts.
