My bendyfooted mudpuppy is losing her bendy foot today...

Hi all,
my sweet little mudpuppy Jaida is at the vet's right now...they are amputating her lower leg to remove the malformed part. It's always been in her way and impedes her mobility, not to mention it gets bonked and scraped on things all the time. We're only removing the lower part (below the elbow) because we're going to get her a prosthesis after she's healed up.

I am nervous. Sad. Missing her little "boo-boo leg" already, it was part of her. Trying to imagine how she's going to look. :sad:

Hoping and Praying that all goes well with Jaida's surgery today . You will have to give lots of hugs and kisses to help her heal when she comes home!

s and s crossed for a good outcome! With all those good wishes and s headed your way, how can she lose?

Just keep focussed on the goal, bendyfoot! She'll be so happy once she's healed up and gets her prosthesis!

She's Out!!!

Just got the call...she's done, awake, and fine. Everything went well, no complications other than her elbow was a bit tricky to work with because the bones don't fit together the way they're supposed to. She's alert, mor alert than the vet expected her to be at this point.
All is well, including my pounding heart!!!

I just finished reading Jaida's (and your) story from beginning to end and checking out her blog. What an amazing dog, with equally amazing parents. All of you are truly an inspiration. Jaida sure knew what she was doing when she picked you! I wish everyone would take their responsibility to their animal companions as seriously as you do.
Best of luck to all of you.
Just want to add kudos to your vet for being a wonderful, caring man who was more interested in the welfare of your dog than the $$$.
