Previously I posted that my pit bull Sydney is having 4 surgeries this summer. Complete joint replacement of both hips and both elbows. Well Tuesday she had her first hip replacement. Things went pretty well although there was one complication. She has some (hopefully temporary) nerve damage in her leg. It seems to be getting better already, but we have a few weeks to go before we know if it will resolve completely. She's coming home today!!!!!!! I've missed her so much even though I've visited her twice a day every day! My pitador (lab/pit mix) Samantha has been doing pretty well until this morning, she's really gotten depressed today so she'll be really excited when her sister comes home today!! After she heals from this one, we start all over again on her second hip
But hopefully after all 4 are done, she can lead a totally pain free life for several more years.
