Those of you who follow our Facebook Page, Twitter, and our Google Plus page already know this news, but Natasha came through her TPLO surgery fine Monday. For us, though, it was just a day of waiting for news.
The TPLO surgery to repair the damaged cranial cruciate ligament injury went well. The surgeon did discover some meniscal injury (cartilage damage), but we were already prepared for that possibility. This is a good article if you are curious about meniscal injury.
Based on her progress yesterday, we are expecting Natasha to be discharged from the hospital by mid-day today and then we begin the long road to recovery. The hardest part will be the first few weeks where Natasha’s leg will feel much better, but we can’t let her use it much as the bone heals. Grumpy might be the overstatement of the year!
Thanks to everyone for your best wishes.

Funny story to lighten things up –
Monday evening, the hu-dad decided to take the Pack of Five for a walk, figuring it would do everyone some good to get out of the house. That plan was great except for the part where the hu-dad forgot to check the weather radar before leaving the housing. At exactly the furtherest point from the house, the rain began – a steady, driving, cold fall rain. We were all soaked when we arrived back at the house. We suspect the Queen is laughing at us.
