Paw Circle of Healing for Sweet Chloe
The last thing that happened before she jumped up to meet her fate, was me putting some ointment on a rash she was being treated for and saying, "Up on the bed, Chloe!" so the ointment would dry and her momma, my daughter, could keep a close eye to be sure she didn't lick off the ointment. And Chloe, in her bright-eyed trusting manner, listened, only to experience the worse pain of her life, followed by all this trauma. I understand from the vet that this was in the making...that her rash could've been her biting at the joint from the growing pain. That this could be a genetic disorder. Still...I feel awful, as though she thinks I caused her pain. In the long run, if this was going to happen anyway, I am very glad I was right there and it wasn't while she was going up or down the stairs or while she was running in the yard with the others. Still...she looks up with her bright blue eyes pleading for help. I pray the orthopedic vet will have positive news for us.
Prayers and positive vibes are most welcome! I will be taking a break for a bit from blogging until after we see the ortho and get our girl through the surgery and back home to recover. I know it will be a long road, but she is young and we pray in a year from now this will just be a distant memory in her mind. Right now, she really needs us and my daughter really needs me. My heart breaks for her since she just lost her cat Smokie, and now her baby Chloe is in such distress.
Please join us in a pawcircle of healing for our "Cozy Girl." Thank you for all your kindness and support. I look forward to returning back to Blogville at a later date and bearing good recovery news about our baby Chloe.
