My precious Bayley is at Univ. of TN Vet School this a.m. and is scheduled for surgery on his little left front leg at 9:00 a.m. It seems his little elbow socket has problems. They called at Noon today to let me know that Bayley had come through the surgery really great, and that he was just coming out from under the anesthesia. It was a bit more extensive than they had initially thought it would be. They actually ended up having to remove a piece from the ulnar bone. The dr. said that the elbow moves much more freely now, and that he should feel so much better after he recovers from the surgery. He will probably get to come home on Thursday (day after tomorrow), depending on his pain levels. December 16, 2009---Bayley is in a lot of pain this a.m. so he will probably not come home until at least tomorrow. He's having trouble bearing any weight on that leg...and hasn't learned yet how to walk without using it at least some. My poor little fella, I just hate that he has to go through this, but hopefully he will be MUCH better for it in the long run.
