Lily had sutures removed on 4.21.14 and was checked for healing. Her veterinarian is so happy with how well Lily is progressing, she has scheduled the next surgery for May 9th, just 4 weeks post first surgery. She will verify that morning if Lily is ready to go and if so, Lily will stay for surgery that afternoon. At this point, she is using the repaired leg better and with less pain than the other. Because of that, the vet thinks Lily will be much more comfortable once the second leg is corrected.
Please take a few seconds to view a short video of Lily walking post surgery. She began using the surgery leg on Wed, one week after surgery. It goes to show just how much pain she WAS in that she is using this leg so soon after a rather ambitious correction.
Thank you all for your support and well wishes! She is well on her way to becoming pain free thanks to your help.
