I posted a few weeks ago about how I was told Dakota needed surgery on a torn CCL... well the time has come.
We met with the surgeon last Wednesday. I really liked him and he seems very confident about the procedure and how she will do. We are doing a traditional repair on it. The only thing that made me nervous is that I am not getting much of a physical therapy regimen from him. In fact, the only thing he said was to keep her on leash outside at all times until December. He even said we'd be able to start jogging again pretty quickly... it seemed like his timeline was way too fast, at least for a worry wart like myself.
Dakota has to be at the vet around 7:00 am. I am not sure what time her actual surgery is, but I know that I am going to be a nervous wreck until the surgeon calls me after he is done to tell me how it went. In all honesty, I'll probably be a nervous wreck until she is back in my arms the next night (She has to stay over night and most of the next day), and then I'll probably cry.
I can't even stand it... I am so nervous and I don't know how to handle it!
