Report from Belle's visit to vets today
Vet really pleased with her, she shows no sign of pain or discomfort in leg, however he would prefer to remove plate and pins in 4-6 weeks as the screws do interfere with the ulna bone and he feels in the long term they could cause problems. I have left greyhound gap a message to see whether they can fund the removal of them. In the mean time we carry on with crate rest, lead only exercise but in two weeks her jabs will give her full cover and walks outside of the garden can begin.
I was desperately hoping for more freedom for her but as vet said we’ve come so far lets err on the side of caution. Easy for him to say!
Twizzle’s visit to vets today
Not so good news! Vet thinks the screaming when she runs may be as a result of a neurological condition or a congenital defect (both of which I had been thinking) has prescribed some painkillers but if it’s leaning towards what he thinks the pills won’t have any effect, booked in for x rays Wednesday but again probably won’t show what he suspects but it’s a starting point, he thinks she will need a cat scan. Feel really sad as we all suspect it could potentially be serious but keeping paws crossed that it isn’t.
Bone day Wednesday! favourite day of the week for the hounds
Yes every now and then Gangley does move off the sofa LOL
Have my pre admission appt for the operation I will have on 25th Oct, darn it I was doing such a good job not thinking about it but now I have the pre admission appt I can't get it out of my head grrrrr
Layouts prepared for my weekend away, I don't think I have ever need a break this badly before, Belle was playing and managed to catch my hand with a tooth and the skin ripped quite badly so consequently I now have anti biotics because my immune system is squashed with drugs we can't take the risk and they are making me feel yuck on top of exhausted, poor Belle not sure who is struggling more her or me.
Wedding layouts13 and 14 done, have been on quite a roll with them but had to stop to prepare the paper ones for the weekend and I was itching to keep going, almost half way now yay!
