My poor little button head.
Well, the news is in with my sweet Peanut. She has one knee out and a ruptured ACL in the other, as well as that knee out too. She also has very bad hip dysplasia. The Dr. says on a scale of 1-4 she is a 4 . I saw the xray and her hips have no sockets. The little bones just hang out there helplessly and put all the pressure on her knees and then they just cave in. She needs her hips replaced and has been in chronic pain for who knows how long as hip dysplasia is degenerative . I had no idea, she is only 5 or will be june 15th . I am sick to my stomach knowing she has been in chronic pain and now adding the knee pain, her pain level at this time the Dr. says is about an 8-10. How can they tell us they are in pain , bless their little all giving hearts ? I feel horrible . I had no idea, it just all visually showed itself in the last 2 days. My poor little baby . We have her on doggie morphine and a sedative to keep her from moving around to much, yet she still wanted to go for a walk tonight. She keeps hobbling over to the door and plopping down and I keep taking her back to the nite nite nest as I call her bed. We see a specialist hopefully monday. My heart is breaking to see her in such pain.
