Update Surgery: Mr. Whiskers reporting

Hi Everyone:
Thank you for all the well wishes for Miss Lillie. It's Mr. Whiskers reporting on the little gimp. Here's the scoop. Lillie left today at 9:30 a.m. for her consultation with Dr. Koluk and hasn't returned. Mom just got home and informed us that they did infact need to do the surgery. She said that Dr. Koluk said that Lillie had a congenital deformity in her knee cap and that is why the patella was luxating (dislocating). It wasn't due to any trauma. The other knee has the same issue but not to the same degree- she probably won't ever need surgery on that knee (paws crossed) but they are going to have to watch it closely. The vet said that if they hadn't fixed the problem early that she would have blown out her ACL. Something with how it was sitting in reference to her knee. (Whatever the heck an ACL is). I don't have all the details but will let mom fill you in later, once she is feeling relaxed. Jordan and Mom went to see Lillie and mom was a little frazzled when she got home. Lillie was not resting alright, but was very anxious. The Vet had to give her some anxiety medicine (NOT MOM, LILLIE!!!) and then she calmed down and was able to relax. The Vet did say that Lillie was able to sleep for several hours. Lillie was pretty uptight and in some pain when mom and Jordan visited. They could hear her crying in the waiting room! The Vet did let her out of her kennel for some loving, but she was very uptight. She really missed mom and Jordan. She was being a cry baby....I mean, she was crying because she was in pain the poor thing! I really do miss her alot and am glad that she is going to be gone tonight......Did I say that? What I meant was I am going to miss her tonight and I can't wait to have her back! Mom will post more tomorrow. The little gimp will be home tomorrow sometime. Then it's back to strict bed rest for six weeks. Thanks for stopping by. Mom will help Lillie update tomorrow, or if she isn't feeling up to it I will let you all know how she is doing.

Mr Whiskers,
Thanks for the undate on poor Lillie. We feel so bad that she is feeling so poorly and is so sad to be alone. We'll all be happier when she is home tomorrow. Please give her a big cuddle from all of us down under.

Hugs and tail wags

We're sending lots of AireZen to you, Lillie! We don't want you to be in pain! Six weeks is a long time for bed rest! Maybe your mom will get you some peanut butter bones to keep you busy!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
