Got a call from the vet today, and got not so good news. Ok, horrible news. The x-rays show no abnormalities in the bone, which means its soft tissue. The vet, knowing my situation, says he should probably be returned to the owner. She explains the therapies are costly, and don’t always ensure 100% recovery, so hes not looking like such a good prospect anymore.
At this point we are going ahead with the ultrasound just to find out what exactly is wrong with him. The owner is very understanding, even offering to keep him if he needs time off and calling me when/if he recovers. I called her half crying though, so she must understand how much he means to me.
This is all so depressing to me. This blog has become such a sad chronicle of everything going sour.
Again thank you to everyone for your support through all this. Although I may not know any of you personally, it really means a lot to me how much writing this all out has comforted me.
