Misty and Mom met with the surgeon last night. Misty will have one of her knees repaired today. She will come home late this afternoon. Please remember her today and send lots of POTP for a successful surgery and a full and speedy recovery.
Depending on what the radiographs show, she will have either a TTA or TPLO repair. If all goes well, she might be able to have her other knee repaired in 4-6 weeks. That was very good news to Mom because she would love to see Misty fully recovered before the ice and snow of winter arrive when it would be a lot harder for Mom to walk her multiple times a day. But we will follow the advice of the doctors and not rush things along.
Meanwhile, Lightning is in a holding pattern with all his testing. He has had a relatively better week with dryer nights. So the vet wants to let a week or so go by before we move to more testing. Some have suggested that his issues could be due to the stress of the past few months, and that may very well be true. But it still doesn't explain the enlarged adrenal gland and the very low specific gravity urine readings. So if you have any POTP vibes left, he could use a few too.
We will update here once we have news about Misty.
Many thanks to all for all your support. And special thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for these two beautiful graphics and to Cecilia of Madi and Mom for the POTP post.
