Healing, I think...

Wow, what a difference two weeks makes... But not really.

Basically what I forgot to update about was the specialist deciding that he could not tell whether or not my foot was broken, but that "something clinically significant" had happened to it. It was black and painful, too painful to even stand on until Saturday. But, with my CP and other issues, no one knew how to read the Xray!

So I spent the last 2 weeks in a cast and went back to the specialist again- Still a lot of pain, still swelling, still from a clinical exam they could tell me where the fracture *should* be... but it wasn't there.

So, they took me out of the cast to let me have a bit more freedom of movement, told me to let pain be my guide, and referred me on to yet another specialist in Feburary.

Otherwise, though, things are going well here. Mackers saw the vet for the second time on Saturday, he has doubled his adoption weight (0.8- 1.6 kilograms) had his second booster and tested negative for the feline leukemia virus!

I wasn't able to get out to get his pictures done with Santa as they were being done for pets the weekend I fell, so here's our best attempt

Happy Holidays from Ashley, Lady, and Mackers!!

A. picture.

February sounds like a long time away for something that sounds pretty painful.

Merry Christmas to you, Lady & Mackers too!

Awww, what an adorable lil Meezer! Looks like he's fitting in nicely!

Now, excuse my language...but what the hell is "Something clinically significant"?

Do you have a caseworker through your insurance? If not, you should get one because it sounds like you are going to have to get a second opinion or find a place where they can at least read your x-ray! Probably another referral, etc...

Just because things should be a certain way doesn't mean they will be. Hubbins spent 5 days on an antibiotic he was deathly allergic to because he didn't have the usual symptoms for an allergy to that antibiotic. Medicine and doctors are insane. really.

Merry Christmas to you guys too!
