    The Plan

    My vet called me back just now. The plan is to up his pain meds even more and see how he does. If he's not back to more regular weight bearing on that leg by Friday, then he needs to go in to the clinic.

    After describing his behavior she told me it is unlikely that he broke the top of femur (a big worry for me since it is so thin now) or FULLY ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament (in the knee)....but it is possible he partially ruptured his ACL. It could also be that he just bumped or tweaked the hip and it will just clear up on its own. It's hard to say at this point, so we're trying a wait-and-see approach.

    Please send prayers and good thoughts our way.

    Thank you so much for reading.

    Kate

    I pray for you both... no one, human or dog, should have to go through what you 2 have gone through already.

    Oh Kate, I am so sorry. I almost want to cry everytime I see this thread resurface. I hope this will truly be the last of Kirk's problems and he goes on to become a strong, active BC boy. {{{hugs}}}

    That makes two of us about the thread resurfacing ...I just want to post GOOD news for once. On Saturday I had just been telling everyone at work how wonderfully he was doing (I work at my vet's clinic and all my coworkers know him and his history). Now I feel like I jinxed it or something...
    At least he's doing better today....I could hardly stand seeing him like he was last night.

    Poor Kirk and poor you. It has been too much for both of you I'm sure. I was just thinking about Kirk the other day,wondering how he was doing. I will pray for him, that he may be healed and able to be 'normal' and play. I will also pray for you that you will be able to make it through all of this. {{{hugs}}}
    I have had a taste of this with my Lacey, surgeries, repeat surgeries and just praying she would be able to walk, it is not easy.

    I am so sorry to hear about these problems. It is most unfair for Kirk and
    for you too. You must have the patience of a Saint to keep carrying
    on for as long as you have. Could you keep Kirk caged while you are gone?
    I hope he starts to put more weight on his leg soon. Do you think he just
    over did things & strained a muscle?

    Thank you so much for your kind words. Thankfully today he does not look half as distressed as he did yesterday.
