Mally Update

Hey everyone!  Great news!  Yesterday afternoon I got a call from the surgeon that Mally was out of surgery and did great.  They said she woke up quickly and was already sitting up!  That’s really good news!   They removed the femoral head and neck on the right side and cleaned up some debris that was in the hip socket and probably causing her pain.  They kept her overnight for observation.  This afternoon I got the call that she was up, walking around and in good spirits - almost ready to come home! 

And if that wasn't enough, sometime after her operation, she was sweet enough to send me these...
The card said,
"You're the best mom ever.  Thanks for fixing my hip. 
Love, Mally."

She is one thoughtful pup.

Right now, Ryan's picking her up and taking her home!  I can't wait to see her!

Just wanted to say thanks to you all for your thoughts and prayers over the last few days!  It means the world to me!

Love,
Sara

  13. Just got caught up on Mally's troubles!! So sorry you're going through that, and am so glad she's doing well. When Brody and I visit next month, we will not bring Sadie --- don't want her to be tempted to herd! :)

  15. I've been thinking about you since we talked about this on Twitter that day. I'm glad to hear that Mally did well with surgery. Hopefully it won't take her too long to bounce back! My dog took a while but not because of pain, just because he got lazy!! Good luck to both of y'all with the rehab!!

    Don't know why this took so long, but I'm now a follower! :)
