Home at last!
HOME AT LAST!
When I took Betty to the vet for TPLO surgery on her hind leg a week ago, I was expecting an overnight stay ... not a five night stay! Poor Betty developed a nasty seroma after her operation, so had to stay under close observation in doggy hospital. The vet did an amazing job with her and thankfully, she was allowed home on Sunday and despite two bionic legs, is already walking confidently again! I couldn't be happier for her.
It will take several months to rebuild muscle loss and regain full fitness but the most important thing is, Betty is bearing full weight on her hind legs and the awful lameness that resulted in her being unable to walk properly prior to surgery, is now nothing but a bad memory. With a little rest and recouperation, she is already looking so much happier!
It has been such an anxiety filled year but at last, the worry is starting to fade. This surgery will give Betty back her life and for that, we are so very grateful.
