Leila and Me

A semi-tripawd cat's story so far…

Leila and Me

All good (so far)

I think I did very well today!

I dropped Leila off with almost no tears (almost).  I got on with my jobs, I’m still getting on with my jobs – for some reason going away for the weekend seems to lead to huge amounts of cleaning and laundry to be done on Monday.  The vets planned for a simple pin removal and said that, if it came to amputation, they would call me before they did it.  Otherwise they would call after the surgery.  I wasn’t sure exactly what time the surgery would be done as she was third in line today so I tried not to clock-watch too much.

They called after the surgery!

Her leg has healed.  It has not healed straight and the x-rays aren’t pretty (as I posted in a previous blog).  She will be back on the dreaded cage rest for at least 3 weeks and absolutely no jumping.  They are worried that the bone is still weaker. I will have to do some physio with her to help increase her movement, but she will always have slightly limited movement of that leg.  Fingers crossed.  We’re still on the road to recovery, and there is still no certainty that the leg will not break, but for now it’s hopeful.  I can bring her home this evening.

I will post a picture of her when she gets home.

    Surgery is done and she’s coming home! 🙂

    And you are doing a great job of holding yourself together! This whole ordeal is stressful to say the least! But all this is behind you now and you both can get on with a “normal” life. Well….I know keeping her calm at first may be a challenge though! Ugh!

    Looking forward to more updates snd, of course, more pictures!

    Sending love and kitty hugs!

    Oh now we can all breathe!

    Yep, there’s a road ahead but that’s not to say it’s filled with potholes. You’ll become even closer on this journey, and create a life you can both be so happy about. Keeping up your great attitude and approach to recovery will get you there.

    We would love to see photos and explanations of the physio, if you can. That would be super helpful to other kitty pawrents here.
