I’m sure no one wants to hear my complaints because there’s a lot of good things going on in my life. Plus, people usually just don’t care. But seeing as how today is my Weepy Wednesday, and I haven’t really posted a lot of whining in a long time, I thought I’d give myself permission to vent a little today and then move on.
BooBoo went back to the vet today. Even a month after her eye surgery, the doctor can still see the grid lines he put in her eye. They should have healed in 5 days. The poor thing has been wearing the cone of shame for 6 weeks now. What’s worse is that last week she suddenly developed a really bad limp, refusing to put weight on right back leg. There were a few days last week where she couldn’t keep her food down, too. They x-rayed her today and looks like she has a torn ligament that connects the top bone to the bottom bone. He also said it will never heal or grow back. They also took some blood today because the vet is thinking these are textbook symptoms of a poor immune system and that maybe something is wrong with her thyroid. Maybe we’ll find out more tomorrow. We will also have to decide on whether we want her to remain a 3-legged dog, or go ahead and have her get surgery on that torn ligament. I guess first we’ll have to see if what’s causing all this is more serious.
In the meantime, she’s on some anti-inflammatory and pain meds today to help with her suffering. Poor baby girl. Getting old sucks for everyone it seems. I have a few health problems accumulating as well. I haven’t really talked much about them, and for now, I think I just want to make sure we do what’s right for BooBoo and then I can deal with my stuff.
