Princess Maggie has injured herself yet again. She seems to be very accident prone and has spent many a night at the vet. She was playing outside with her daddy the other night. He let her in and I noticed blood all over the floor. I freaked out – of course – and opened the door to go get John Paul and she ran back out.
Thank god Bert’s cousin was here, she worked for a vet for a while, and they took control. I was a hot mess and it’s very likely we would have made a trip to the emergency vet had Jenn not been there! I may have called 911! Mags cut her back left foot on something, probably a piece of glass. and Bert said he could see tendon. They bandaged her foot and we headed to bed. (I slept at the foot of the bed so Maggie could sleep by her daddy – we have to sacrifice for our babies, right?!)
Mags went to the vet the next morning and we waited for the doc to call. She tore her flexor tendon so it was off to surgery to try and repair the tendon. A few hours later the doc called and said her tendon was shredded and they were unable to repair it. They stitched up the cut and we would have to wait and see how her leg would heal.
I was super sad and completely worried that she would not be able to run again. Berty picked her up from the vet and now it’s a waiting game. Her cut will heal and we will see how she can maneuver without her flexor tendon. I am super dramatic and I cried when she came home walking on 3 legs. :(
*she had to cuddle up with daddy after surgery
So if you’re a vet, your husband’s a vet, you slept with a vet, or you googled it, I would love any info on what to expect as her leg heals. I hate waiting! I think she will be fine but I wonder if she’ll always limp or run weird. Who knows!
