Happy Friday! I have off of work today, so I am very happy to have a 3 day weekend.
Please keep my little hunny in your thoughts today . He has to have anesthesia to get x-rays done and get his paw closely examined to find out why he hasn’t been able to walk on it for the last 3 weeks. Bosco has been limping on his back left paw for weeks and now he won’t walk on it at all. We thought it was just his allergies (since he has limped before due to allergies around this time of year), but we finally took him to the vet when it seemed to only get worse, and the vet said x-rays need to be done to determine the cause.
Pat and I dropped him off at 8:30 this morning. The vet will need to do bloodwork before they give him anesthesia, wait for it to come back, and then they will do x-rays to see what is going on. The vet seems to believe it is either a torn ligament (like a torn ACL in humans) or arthritis. My baby had to fast since 8 PM last night, and likely won’t be able to go home until sometime after 3 PM. The actual process of taking the x-rays will only take 1/2 hr., but it takes time to do the bloodwork, wait for it to come back, do the x-rays, and then wait for him to come out of the anesthesia.
I feel so sorry for him and can’t wait until we can get him all fixed.
After we dropped Bosco off this AM, I went food shopping to get it out of the way for the weekend. I then came home, ate breakfast, did some laundry (including new sheets we just bought last weekend – woohoo!), went to the gym, and I just got out of the shower.
As for the rest of the day, I want to make a trip to Target to stock up on some protein bars (and I am sure 1000 other things I will see when I am there), read more of my book, and wait until we are able to pick up my love from the vet later.
I saw this earlier this week and thought it was hilarious (and SO true!).
Enjoy the rest of your day!
