    Default Off to the vet we go

    After a wonderful weekend of my daughter graduating and my son getting engaged things turned crappy in an instant last night. When we got home from picking up my daughter from work Harlea was her usual excited self and followed me in to my bedroom and hopped up on the bed while I was changing. She gets up there by jumping up on the hope chest at the foot of our bed so it is almost like having steps. After I changed I go up to go in the bathroom and Harlea decided to get the zoomies and jump off. I didn't think anything of it at first until I heard my wife screaming. Naturally I freaked out as well. So now she is favoring her left rear leg. She will put it down but you can tell it hurts.

    I did the normal feel around and movements of her hip and knees and didn't feel anything and Harlea didn't budge when I put pressure or manipulated them. However, when I got to her foot and toes she wasn't too happy so off to the vet we go as soon as they open this morning.

    Ugh… well hopefully she just sprained it, and needs to rest. Willow got the zoomies in the house AFTER playing in her pool, so of course she is slipping/sliding all over the floor and got tangled up in the vacuum cord Congrats on all the GOOD news this weekend, sounds like your kids are growing up and moving on. Let us know what the vet says this afternoon...

    Just got an update from my wife. They took xrays and didn't see anything broken which is good and it doesn't look like she tore her ACL either which is great. Howver, it looks like she may have a torn meniscus so she will be on 10 days rest and confinement and then a recheck to see if she is better.

    Well the confinement will SUCK, but at least she may avoid surgery… I hope she feels better soon!!!

    Me too. If she isn't better in 10 days they will do surgery to fix the meniscus. The timing just sucks as now one of us has to stay home when my daughter goes to freshman orientation later this week.
