Somewhat Wordless Wednesday 84 - Bella's limp

For those wondering how we're doing with Bella's limp, she is in Boston today having her shoulder joint aspirated and a steroid injected. We just got news that she is out of surgery and resting comfortably. Now we wait to find out if it worked.

This is what we're trying to fix:


For the record, it's chicken dehydrating on the counter that has her so captivated.

We will give an update when we have one. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the rest of the blogs in today's Wordless Wednesday blog hop!

    Hope she's able to jump around for that chicken shortly after she gets home. :)

  4. Oh no. Poor Bella. I had no idea her limp was so bad. Glad she is out of surgery, and I am sure keeping my eye out for some good news. I am a little behind and will try to catch up, but why the aspiration? Did they see something they were concerned about? :-(

  7. Oh my, Bella, I so hope your over that limp real soon. I have the occasional limp. When I was a puppy, I had to get my rear left hip bone removed. I'm mostly okay. You might call be 'one hip dog'! :) Seriously, you are a lovely dog and you sure can tell Leslie loves you as much as you love her.


    Pawsitive wishes,

  11. Hi Donns, The aspiration was to confirm the diagnosis. I don't really understand but they were able to confirm that she has "moderate, chronic inflammation" in the left shoulder joint. I've got some research to do on the injuery/treatment so I can better understand but I think it basically means we're 'treating' it, not 'curing' it...

  16. Okay. Phew. When I hear aspiration I think cancer and what not. Thanks for clearing that up. I saw on facebook that you are cautiously optimistic that the procedure helped. We have all of our fingers and paws crossed over here for you! (And Bella of course!)
