: Christmas Turkey!!!
: Kermit December 25, 2006, 12:18:04 AM
Hi everyone and a big Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!!!!!!! :D :D :D

As some of you know, my dog Turkey was hit by a car about two months ago and broke her back leg and her pelvis. Well... today she comes home from North Carolina from her second surgery. She had the pin taken out of her femur, and got some ex-rays. The ex-rays showed all of her bones to be totally healed!!!! YAY!!!! And in a few hours I will receive the best gift, my little Turkey!!! ;D

So she will have to be confined for a little bit longer while she's still sensitive from the pin, but no more surgeries!!! YAY!!!!!! I am so so thankful!!!!!!!! So we'll see how she feels, I am hoping that now that the pin is out she will be more comfortable about using her back leg. So far she had been just truckin' around on her three good legs. But I am really crossing my fingers that she will use all four legs very soon!

Thanks everyone for your support while we went through this, it was so hard in the beginning and it really feels like a miracle that I still have my baby girl!!! YAY for Turkey!!!
I'll post pics of her after she gets home today. ;)
