OK . . . so a few weeks back my 13 and a half year old dog jumps down from the bed and lands badly, dislocating her knee. But not only did she dislocate the sucker, one of the ridges that holds her knee in place cracked off, so the vet couldn't just pop her knee back into place because there was nothing to hold it there! So she needed surgery to dig a new groove into her bone so that the knee will stay in place. Well, because it was the holidays, she wasn't able to get surgery until yesterday . . . and I got her back today . . .
For $1200, I now have a dog with a huge neon green cast on her back right leg, a big morphine patch on her back and half of her ass shaved . . . but at least her knee is fixed . . . now we just have 6 weeks of recovery . . . man oh man . . .
