On Friday, I dropped Evie off at the Vet in the AM so they could look at her when they had a chance. I was a nervous wreck all day thinking about her, googling what was wrong with her, and waiting for them to call me. Finally, at 5pm,our I walked over to the Vet and got the diagnosis.
Evie tore her CCL aka her ACL aka the major tendon in her knee.
She is hobbling around when she walks; prefers to run/skip instead of walk. She needs surgery. :-(
This surgery is going to be a long road for us all. It is going to be expensive, it is going to take her awhile to recover, and we all have to be patient. This is our poor, baby, Evie May, and we will do whatever it takes to make her better.
We are seeing a specialist in Mill Valley (north of SF) at the end of the month with the hopes of getting scheduled for surgery in early August.
Our summer is changing big time. We had a lot of plans that can't happen now, a lot of overnights that will become day trips, and having fun exploring our own city. In some ways, I wonder if this is a way to make us all slow down and chill out a little bit. I am also grateful that my new company is super flexible and understanding and will allow me to take time off/work from home to be with Evie.
Well, you know what they say about best laid plans! We'll keep everyone posted!
