Update on my girl! Pics.

Hey all.

First of all...

~*~Thank you all for the well wishes, prayers and support~*~

Well It has been a long day. At least for my mind!

She had the surgery and I was able to go and see her for about 30 min.
I spoke with the doc right after surgery. He said the OCD lesions were as originally thought and not very deep at all. So he cleaned them out. He told me they were on the periphrial (sp) edge of the condyle as seen on X ray.
He also told me that Candi had a difficult time with the anesthesia. Poor girl. She was a bit wild coming out. They had to get her up pretty quickly.

It was about 330 pm when we spoke and then I had to wait an hour before going to see her.

I felt so bad. I was not allowed to go into her stall but I was able to open the little side door for her to come to me.

She was still quivering from the anesthesia. Poor thing. I almost cried and didn't. I did not want her to stress on my stress.
She was completely soaked from head to toe with sweat. Some dry and some still wet. She pooped and peed while I was there which is good. Especially since it wasnt the nervous runs.

She did not really want to be touched at first. Finally I just kept telling her in a low toned voice what a good girl she is and she finally came and rested her head on the back of my shoulder. But only untill she got the quivers and had to move again...poor girlie. I could tell she wanted to have me there but needed to just deal with the side effects of the medications...anesthesia

When I finally ended up leaving she started to really scream. Calling out to me I suppose. I couldnt go back in. She needed to just "be" for a while.

She will be staying at the vet hospital until Thursday but I would imagine that is subject to change if she doesnt do well.

I plan on speaking with my vet about some type of calming suppliments. I know she is going to be full of herself when she gets home. The hand walking is what will comcern me as she will want to get her pent up energy out
Oh my poor girlie...

So far the surgery is in the past and now we move on to the imediate recovery and then to rehabing her per whatever my vet and the surgeon decide.

Here are some (not so good) pics I took with my phone. I forgot to turn the falsh off in one pic and her eye was all lit up. I tried to fix it as best I can. And yes my finger is in the way on the other one.

well thats the scoop as of now. I will update as things come about!

Thanks bunches

I'm thankful she made it through the surgery. Just remember one day at a time with her when you get her back, and hopefully everything will be fine. Still sending prayers.

Thanks a bunch.

I think I am exahusted! Tomorrow I have some errands to run and then I hope to see her in the afternoon. The office will call me in the morning and give me an update.
We are just gonna hang in there and deal with stuff as it comes. Keeping her from getting to "frisky" before she needs to be is first on my list to discuss with my vet...
Oh the poor youngster....I hate having surgery so I can only imagine how she must feel.
