The good news is......

After a reminder from a friend this morning, I realized I never updated Lainey's status after our appointment on Monday. There was some good news and some bad news....
  • GOOD news ~ The sutures were able to come out.
  • BAD news ~ She was limping the day of the appt.
  • GOOD news ~ Even though she was limping there were no signs of any damage to the leg (maybe sore muscle or something).
  • BAD news ~ She needs a new "customized" brace for her hock as the one she has doesn't fit her properly.
  • GOOD news ~ She has started on some new joint medication.
  • BAD news ~ I have to inject her with it myself
Within the next week she should be off of bed rest (again) and can go back to running, playing and just enjoying being a dog. Fingers (and toes) crossed and praying that this saga is over!
Lainey and her friend Kappy hiking last May
This was the last hike we took before tearing her ACL! 
I can't believe this saga has been going on for a year now!  And to think that I almost cried when the first doctor told us we were looking at 4-6 months recovery. 
If only I knew then what I know now
