    Frankie's Recovery Post Op - Left Knee Surgery

    Here is Frankie. He will be 2 years old Oct 24. And Nov 1, he will have the first surgery for bilateral luxating patellas. As some will recall, Frankie was given to me when he was 9 months old;unknown to me, he already had serious issues with his knees - both are Grade 4.

    My vet said to hold off on the surgery until age 2, hold off on neutering as well. Neutering has been done (Aug 13 at the MSPCA low income clinic). First surgery is Nov 1, estimate is $1680. Second surgery - for the other leg - will be 3 months later.

    I was not thinking of major surgerys when I accepted Frankie. I have not worked in 16 years (caring for my Dad, with dementia etc.) and this major expense was not known when I accepted Frankie into my flock. All my pets have been rescues, and I have never asked for any help with them. However times change, and this is a huge amount.

    If you could find an extra $5 for Frankie, to help with his surgeries, please mail it to the vet: Johnson Veterinary Hospital, 160 Winthrop Avenue, Lawrence, MA 01843. Or phone 978-794-0022. Be sure to let them know it is for Frankie Sammartano. Many thanks. I have also set up a youcaring fund, please note that paypal will take a commission.

    Oh, what a little sweetie!!! He looks so cute on that wagon! I would love to help out. To expedite things, maybe the vet will accept a donation over the phone, using my debit card? I know that's worked before, with the others here needing a little help. I'll call the office tomorrow to ask. If they say no, I'll go the "youcaring" route or send a check!

    Give that little sweetie a hug and kiss for me! And thank you for all you've done, are doing, for Frankie! He's so lucky to have you as his mom!

    What a cutie he is!

    I'm so sorry he has problems with his knees, and it's really disappointing they gave him to you without telling about it. They ought to pay half the bill.

    Will PM you later.

    Best wishes for your surgery, Frankie!
