Why My 11th Birthday Sucked, By Diamond Doggie

Not the Birthday Hat I had in Mind...
Hey kitties. Diamond Doggie here. Two and a half weeks ago I went outside for my morning inspection of the yard and saw an introoder in my territory. I ran to chase the introoder and popped my knee. Ouch! That bought me a trip to the vet. Guess what I did? I tore my doggie ACL. Which means that I bought myself a longer trip to Columbus Ohio to a place called MedVet. They took pictures of my leg - not only did I tear my ACL, but I had a Luxating Patella! Mommy had a consultation with a doggie orthopedic surgeon - Dr. Kennedy. He's a very nice guy, but look what he did to me! I'm a mess! I have a big boo-boo on my leg and I have to wear the cone of shame so I don't mess with my boo-boo. I hate it!
I had my surgery on April 25th. I got to come home the next day. I have to do exercises and take all sorts of medicine. I turned 11 years old on May the 1st. I spent my birthday at the shelter with Auntie Megan (she works there and took me to work with her), That's because the 'rents had the nerve to go on vacation! She took very good care of me, but it wasn't much of a birthday.
The 'rents have been home since last Friday and tomorrow I go back to my regular vet for a check up. I also managed to get a fluid sac on my boo-boo, so that's slowed down my recovery. AND I got bopped in the eye by some kitty around the time of my popped knee and have a prolapsed eye.
The only good thing is that I get a lot of treats when I have to take my medicines and Daddy has slept downstairs with me every night.
I could use some good vibes - this has been a no good, very bad birthday.
OH - and the 'rents say that I have a new name - "New Fence". They say that's my new name because that's what it cost for me to have my surgery. Funny, real funny. Sigh...

Oh, no, that was the suckiest birthday on record, Diamond. We're so sorry! We're sending healing purrs for your recovery, hoping that things goes smoothly from here on in.

That is a bad birthday. I hope that all the rest are far far better than this one! YUCK!

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

OMC! We would certainly be whining if we had a birthday like that, too!

Our Coco had knee surgery about a year ago and Teri thought she tore her ligaments, too, when she fell off a tall cupboard.

Turns out the ligaments were fine, but he kneecap groove was too shallow, so she had to have ortho surgery, too.

Teri said she could have gotten all new furniture for the rumpus room, plus a TV for what it cost...but you know what? She says it's ok cuz she would have been sad to see Coco limp around forever...and we are aure your pawrents feel the same way.

Oh, Coco had to do exercises, too and she liked them but she was glad she didn't have to do underwater treadmill though we bet doggies might like that!
