First of all, thank you all SO much for your sweet emails and blog comments wondering how it all went with Maisie yesterday. They really warmed our hearts!
It's been an interesting week to say the least...here's what happened...
~ Maisie decided to take off the cast HERSELF once again on Tuesday. (James said that in dog years, she thought it was time).
~ We took her right in to the Vet where they decided to x-ray her a few days early.
~ Our Vet said that the toe looked healed to her but there was a small hole in the middle that had not filled with bone yet.
~ She left Maisie's cast off and told us she would consult a Radiologist on Friday to make the final call.
~ Maisie was a crazy dog the rest of the week. Linda needs medication now.
~ Yesterday evening, it was decided by the Docs that her toe was healed with a slight malformation. The cast is off for good though! TRIPLE YAY!
Maisie is limping a bit and holding her paw up occasionally but that's normal because her foot muscles are so weak. We are supposed to baby it for another week or so and then she should start to have a normal life again.
What a two months this has been. I have a few new grey hairs, an aching back and our house is such a mess that the vacuum is running for the back door. All in all...what a relief...what a journey...what a dog!!
Thanks again for going along for the ride with me...and for helping me keep my sanity. I couldn't have done it without you! xox
