A Rough Day for My Big Tough
Even though we thought Lola's knee was getting better, it turned out to be a false start. If she walks too far it is still bothering her. On advice from a coworker, we brought her in to see a muscular specialist. He took an x-ray and recommended a major surgery.
She won't heal on her own without the surgery. I know it's the right choice, but I'm nervous. The receptionist told me that she will need to be crated for at least four weeks and can only go out on a leash briefly to do her business.
It's going to be hard to see her unable to walk easily and feeling so sick, especially since she's usually so rambunctious. It's going to be a rough weekend at our house. And probably a rough few weeks.
