    @rijasterp @julescoffman I can't imagine how hard it is to watch your babies go through that...the surgery..the recovery..but I admire you guys for making sacrifices and doing all you can to make life as comfortable as possible for them while they recuperate! Hopefully the other knee holds up and the vet is wrong...

    Thank you chumley,it's a tough surgery,but they are our furry children crazy thing about Jasmines' surgery,is day before hers my daughter had sinus surgery,my mama flew here from Ohio for 2 weeks to help me..that was a blessing! We took turns taking care of furry daughter Jazzy and human daughter Kylie..had one with a cone on her head,and the other with her nose packed full of gauze,not fun! Lol but we all survived

    @2BullyMama so sorry bout your guy,that's so sad! I really think the only reason she hasn't messed the other one up is I baby her so much,I carry her heavy butt down 2 flights of deck stairs every time she goes out,and we put her in the bed so she doesn't have to jump..well,now she's so rotten that she stares and whines till I pick her up!! I may need back surgery soon lol

    My blossom is 21 weeks old and has popped her back right knee. She limps and keeps lifting her leg off the floor she's on anti inflammatory meds and pain killers. I was hoping this will get better with no lasting problems, or am I kidding myself? Is she more likely to have problems in the future and need op?

    I would definitely get an xray done,that will show them how bad it is..keep us posted,hopefully it will heal on its own.

    The specialist that did jazzys knee said the way to tell for sure is put your thumb right in middle of knee cap and push,if she yelps and you can almost feel it kinda dangling,its torn..

    Thank you for the kind words. I do not hope anyone has to go through this. Jewels next appt is at the end of the month. She still limps but is not yelping. We have increased our walking per the vet. We'll see.

    Hope jewels gets a clean bill of health! It takes awhile to heal.i have a friend that has a cocker spaniel,he tore his knee 2 weeks before jazzy did,he limped for a year! Kept taking him back to vet,they did xray said he is fine and shouldn't be limping..they all agreed he had gotten so used to walking/limping that he was just doing it,he finally quit..

    And we were also told that they may reject the metal,hope not!! But if it is that,they can remove the metal and will be fine without it,the knee has had time to heal..hopefully that's not the case with jewel! Praying she will be running around soon.

    Thanks. Jewel is a work in progress and with "Tincture of Time" and patience she will heal and be running around with her brother.

    @agingermom will start her journey on the 28th with Miss Bertha Bacon and to let you know...I'll be here for moral support. Also @xxaprilrose will be starting this journey.
