In just a couple hours I will be headed down the hill with Schatzie to the vet clinic. Today is the day for her torn ACL surgery. Like most moms before their "kids" have surgery, I am nervous and anxious. I wish Schatzie could understand what is about to happen. The next two months will be stressful for the entire Bloy family. Her rehab will consist of limited activity, basically only being able to go out to relieve herself and numerous trips back to the clinic for laser treatment on the knee. The lack of activity will be the most difficult, especially for a German Shepherd who loves to go. She is extremely active and hates to miss anything her sister Gracie gets to do. We pray the next 2 months go quickly and without too many hiccups. We will muster through this and look forward to the days when Schatzie can walk and run freely with no pain. If all goes well, she will be back home later today.
So until next time, if you have a spare moment we would covet your thoughts and prayers for our girl. Now it's time to get the rehab ward ready!!
Val, R and Gracie
P.S. Gracie says Mahalo for all the Gotcha Day greetings--she enjoyed her day on the bed!!
