NeedlenoseJake Posted March 21, 2016 Share Posted March 21, 2016 I posted this on Facebook, but now it's 3 am and I can't sleep. Jake broke one of his rear femurs last night. We were at the dog park, late as it always is so that we can be alone. It was on his first run and I think he ran into a bench. We were initially worried about some bleeding, but then he refused to put any weight on it. It's a really bad break, the x rays are just sickened- multiple pieces. They don't know if they can save the leg. The surgeon is calling us in the morning. My silly boy was still trying to jump off the exam table! I just want him to be his goofy self again and I'm so worried. I asked about cancer and the vet said it didn't look like it. He did say the bone looked thin, maybe from a nutritional imbalance, which makes me feel like it's all my fault. I'll take any thoughts or prayers or good juju that you have to spare... I know sometimes it can feel silly top write good thoughts for someone you've never met, miles away, but already your kind words on Facebook have helped me feel better. I know you guys can appreciate how scared I am. End of 3 am rambling... Quote Photographer in Phoenix, AZ www.northmountainphoto.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
