Sweep's having surgery 3/10 *Update, now 3/11*


Recommended Posts

Appealing to the powers of GT for my girl. She was zooming in the yard this morning and gave the GSOD and wouldn't bear weight on her back right leg. The e-vet/specialist clinic has diagnosed a spiral fracture of the lower tibia and thus far does not see evidence of cancer; her rads were reviewed by the attending, a surgeon, a radiologist, and an oncologist. (And I am keeping Dr. Couto in mind.) They'll repair the break tomorrow and biopsy if they see anything suspicious. I've cried all day fearing the worst and am still trying to be realistic, but at least there's some hope. We'd appreciate good thoughts from her friends and fans.

Sweep!  NOOOOOOOOO!  Sending all sorts of healing mojo that she'll be back soonest chillaxing on her porch and milking this for all the treats in the book.

Is she at the vet's tonight?

Thank you everybody. I'm so grateful for the support and friendships I've found here. :heart

She is. They assure me she is comfortable (she's on fentanyl so I'd imagine so) and everyone has said how sweet she is. I can't believe my drama queen was so stoic; I was shocked it was a break.

That's when you know it's bad -- when they're being stoic.  

Hoping she is floating on a nice comfy cloud on the fentanyl.  You couldn't even go in with her because of virus restrictions, right?  :grouphug

Right. We had to stay in the car. They called us for her history first and then came and got her and sent us home. :( Thankfully we're <10 min away.

Oh, poor Sweep! And her folks! I'll be sending all my good thoughts for a good outcome and easy recovery.

Wiki says having a metal leg won't slow you down at all.

Oh no!  I'm so sorry.  :grouphug  Sending prayers that this surgery will go well, with a good solid repair to that break and nothing to worry about but how to keep her still for a few weeks.

Pupdate: She might have to wait until tomorrow. They are slammed with emergencies today and she is comfortable and stable so she can afford to wait whereas others can't. They'll call me again this afternoon.
