Update on Maxie

After a restless night sleep (Maxie could not get comfortable, nor could I), I took Maxie to the vet this morning and she has a sprained shoulder. The vet thinks she slid and stretched her shoulder too far and in a weird way. Anyway, he described it as being like a sprained ankle, but in the shoulder.

He gave her a shot of an anti-inflammatory and some other anti-inflammatory medicine. She seemed to feel better immediately and by the time we got home, she was walking normally. I am to limit her walking and jumping (that is going to be really hard) for the next week.

I had to leave for the office, so I am hoping all is well by the time I get home!

    Oh I'm so glad it was that! She's probably sleeping now with her long night and you have to try to stay awake all day :)
    Give her a smooch~

  2. Thanks for letting us know; it's like my worst nightmare. And I SO RELATE on the jumping thing. I wouldn't know how to stop Riley. He's a crazy dog that way.

    I've been thinking of you so much since the break-in and hope you're ok. Let me know if you need anything.

    [Hi, Robin... I love seeing you everywhere I go! :)]

  3. I'm glad Maxie is ok. Sorry I got signed off gchat. Stupid internet threw me off :(
