    More bad news we got him home Wednesday night noticed on Friday that his leg was filling with fluid so back to Des Moines today to the clinic and emergency vet took an x ray and something has come loose they kept him till surgeon can see him on Monday the er vet mentioned that his hip displaysia was pretty bad for not being quite 2 yet so I wonder if that why we are having so many issues with recovery and breaking scres? I can't believe it is something we are doing we only had him home 2 days this time and he was either in his crate or was being taken outside to go with the sling supporting his back legs, we fed him either sitting or if he was standing with his sling supporting his back legs. I will talk to surgeon Monday and his brace will be here Wednesday I am a mess emotionally but I refuse to give up

    Oh Amy, my poor darling, I'm hugging you close to me thru cyber space.
    I'm so, so sorry to read this update and not going to pretend (not that I
    can anyway) it is big time discouraging news!

    I don't know how you are continuing to continue but glad you are and as of
    right now, I'm going to pray, every hour on the hour for Radar's leg & recovery.
    Really.

    My tears won't solve this but know, my heart hurts for this ordeal continuing, as
    I think of all you are dealing with & knowing you must be at the breaking point.
    Sending you all the faith, hope, courage & perseverance to continue standing firm.
    Poor 'lil Radar, give him a soft kiss from me & Cami, what a fighter he is, how is his
    mood & demeanor? Does he seem in pain? I hate, hate, hate he's back at vets and
    know he does too. I'm asking God for a miracle...Amen!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I am so sorry that you are going through this. We luckily haven't had serious ACL issues but I know that many members have had the surgery on their bullies. It seems like you guys are doing everything right. Hopefully other members with experience with the surgery will chime in, but I am sending lots of positive thoughts and support that Radar gets through this and starts healing quickly.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    Met with the surgeon this morning, he is not sure why or how this is happening, since we have had 3 surgeries already and there isn't much left to work with he is suggesting fusing the knee joint so that it can't move he will have a limp of course for the rest of his life, but it will save his leg.

    Any thoughts opinions on this option, I haven't had a chance to read much about it

    If this is the only option, I would think a limp would be better than taking the leg. I'm so sorry you guys are going through this.
