Shelby had her surgery yesterday. She had to have a repair for her torn ligament and they also found that the meniscus was torn. This is the first time that she has not been home with me for the night. Sidney and Sophie spent a good part of yesterday sitting in Shelby’s favorite place. It was so sad to see them looking for her.
I picked her up this afternoon and she looked so sad. She has a cast on her leg and will have to keep it on for a week. After that, she will have it removed and a week later the stitches will be removed. She will need three months to recover the total use of her leg. She will have to remain quiet and not use it for running and jumping. This is going to be a challenge. The cast will have to stay dry. This is almost an impossibility in Florida. The ground is wet almost every night and early morning. I’m keeping my hopes up for a successful recovery. Shelby and her cone of shame that must remain on for the next two weeks.
