12-26-12 We had our appointment with the specialist this afternoon. Friday, the 28, Brandy will be going in to have a TPLO. He feels that she has probably torn her meniscus too, because she still will not put any weight on that leg. Since that's the case, surgery is a must and we decided to get it done as soon as possible. Her other leg is strong right now and we really want to keep it that way!
I felt really good about this doctor. He does 20-30 of these surgeries a week and has an awesome success rate. He said that he never really has to see his patients again after this unless the other leg goes out which is always a possibility (knock on wood!). The hospital that they're at is honestly better than some of the human clinics I've been in.
I'm still scared and nervous, but feel good as I can about it. We we drop her off on Friday and pick her up on Sunday.
Please cross your fingers and paws for Brandy!
(Also my husband is in a job interview right now, so please send some positive vibes for that too!)
