The foster mom writing today while Daisy enjoys her pain meds:
Sweet little Daisy had surgery yesterday to repair her left knee. The very wonderful Dr. Schwach of Avenues Pet Hospital performed a tibial tuberosity transposition that will help her left knee cap stay in place. This is a very complex surgery requiring multiple steps to reposition the knee and create improved knee and joint movement. Dr. Schwach describes this surgery as more complex and difficult than the more common TPLO surgery that our last foster dog Lolo had. Although Daisy will never be an athlete, she should no longer experience pain living a normal dog's life.
Daisy is a very happy dog with a wonderfully positive attitude. Even when her leg has been hurting she always has a wagging tail and is eager to be busily involved in whatever is going on. Today she is wagging her tail as she staggers around finding a way to manage walking on three legs with a cone and now a donut on her head.
Poor Daisy. Good thing she has a sweet nurse watching over her.
