Dog Days of Surgery, Part 3

by Charly Kayle posted Jul 9 2014 1:20PM
Sasha adjusts to being a conehead. 

Even though Sasha felt much better after a month of laser therapy, x-rays showed the inevitable... elbow dysplasia and severe joint deterioration.  
(See Dog Days of Surgery, Part 1 and Part 2

I tossed & turned, and literally lost sleep over what course of action to take.  While arthroscopic surgery was the recommendation, I was warned it would NOT "fix her" back to where she was.  It would only slow down further deterioration and lessen the pain she felt now.  This decision was not taken lightly (or inexpensively).
At least I know what it feels like.  
I had my own knee scoped many years ago.  

The cone and the elbow.  (8 weeks of this? Oh no.)

Kitty kisses!  Actually, Kashi just wants to see what the heck is going on. 

Now he's claiming the cone! 

With three dog beds set up in her recuperation room, she chooses the rug on the floor. Go figure! 

Limited view of the world. 

Getting iced. 

My view of the TV. I spent a lot of time on the floor those first few days after her surgery, comforting her.  

Brooklyn peeking over the side of the bed, looking down at us. He doesn't want any part of what's going on down there!  

Tomorrow: more of Sasha's medical journey.
