So we are going to start our week by wishing you all a belated Happy Easter. We are sorry we missed visiting all of you for the past couple of days.
We had some misfortune happen on Friday night, and it really put a damper on our weekend. Friday night was not a good Friday for Lightning.
A visit to the vet on Saturday confirmed the bad news. Unfortunately things are worse this time. There are some complications beyond the rupture. It is not looking likely that surgery will be an option. The vet is going to consult with the surgeon today to figure out what is the best way to proceed. For now Lightning is on some pain medication and is back on total leash restriction and lots of rest.
Lightning is such a good boy and a real trooper. He is trying so hard to get around, but the leg that was injured last fall has still not completely returned to normal. The leg is not as strong as it needs to be to make up for the newly injured one. He is a big boy and getting around is not easy. We would all welcome all the POTP you can send his way.
For now he is in good hands and paws with all of his nursemaids.
