Peanut Update

Peanut has had a bit of a setback. She banged her surgical leg and started limping badly. We tended to her for a few days and it was getting worse so we decided to bring her in for a recheck with her surgeon.

Still a little groggy from sedation.

X-rays indicated no damage to her hardware! Yay! We were so worried the screws or plate got messed up. She does have swelling around the knee that goes down to her ankle. It’s possible she has a small infection that is causing some of the swelling so we’re going to give her another round of antibiotics.

Obvious swelling.

We’re so relieved no damage was done to her hardware. We’ve both been sick to our stomachs thinking a serious setback had occurred that might require more surgery. The surgeon wants an update next week on her progress.
