This is the face of a very stoned cattlefrog who will be having knee surgery on November 1st.
This surgeon agreed that the original August x-rays look very clean, which was a relief; I was just gutted thinking he’d had a CCL tear all this time after all. But tonight’s exam and imaging following on his recent backslide were suggestive of an early partial tear.
So here we go. I feel great about the surgeon and hospital and am glad to have a plan. Otherwise, I’m pretty disappointed and guilty and sad. This poor little dog just cannot catch a break.
