    Monday

    The vet report was not what we had hoped for. X-ray revealed that one of the three broken bones has not healed. The vet is consulting with his orthopedic guy and the question is whether or not Luci would benefit from the surgical placement of a plate to help fuse those bones.

    So we wait.:arghh:

    And Luci continues to klunk around with this cast on her foot. We're all disappointed about that news - and will see what the ortho guy has to say - apparently he only works three days a week - so will have to review her x-rays when he is in and able to do the consult.

    Luci seems fine with it - so we'll see what they say. Darn it all...:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Prayers for little Boomer @Judy and Boomer this morning.

    Maybe more cast time will heal it. Luci is so use to the cast now, she cares less.

    Oh no! Poor girl, Well at least she is already used to it at this point. Hope they figure it out soon.

    So frustrating about poor Luci’s foot. I’m so surprised it didn’t heal properly. I hope she won’t end up needing surgery. Like Sandra said, it’s definitely a saving grace that Luci is already used to the cast.

    fingers crossed for sweet Luci !

    So disappointing.... sorry for you and Luci ! I was so sure everything would be all right. A good thing the cast doesn't seem to bother her too much anymore !! As Paula said, maybe a little more time would help! You'll see what the ortho says.... waiting again !!!

    That’s so disappointing, Sue. Poor Luci, I hope she doesn’t need surgery. I’m sure all her kitty friends will keep their toes and paws crossed for her.

    Hugs and positive thoughts for you and your DH and Luci. :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Healing vines for Luci's foot. I hope that the consult with the orthopedist will clarify what can be done.

    I imagine it is very hard to set a cat's food. I hope the ortho consult is easy and the proposed treatment is simple.

    Oh no Sue :bighug::bighug: So is the dental on hold until you know more on the foot? I hope that maybe just a bit more time it will heal it without further intervention :cat:

    Poor little Luci! I hope the specialist can help and get it healed. Have you ever looked into infrared and also cold laser treatments? When my Livia was about 11 mos old, she twisted her knee and popped her kneecap out. We did a combination of both infrared and cold (Erchonia) laser treatments and it really helped her to heal quickly and she’s never had another issue with it anti jinx.

    Oh Sue, I am sorry to hear this news. I hope the doctor will have good news for you. I know Luci does not care about having the cast and she is a happy girl. Maybe the doctor will find a way to get her leg healed properly without surgery. Praying for both of you :bighug:

    Sorry I’m late in this... that’s a bummer. Well, I’m sure you’ll do what’s best for Luci even if it means more surgery or time with a cast. :(
