CCL Surgery for Daisy Mae

Hi everyone,

Daisy Mae had a freak, traumatic injury to her CCL in her left, rear leg while in our backyard. The surgeon said this is not a genetic injury and a torn CCL is very rare in puppies. Her surgery is now scheduled for Friday, December 20, 2019, at BluePearl Animal Specialty Hospital in Orange Park. The total cost will be $3,000.00.

Latest Update

Hi everyone, Daisy had surgery four weeks ago today, marking the half-way point for stage 1 of her recovery. Two weeks ago, she was examined by the surgeon. He was impressed with her progress at that point. She no longer wears the cone, and she is putting more weight on the back left leg daily as we continue to take more (and longer) walks. Daisy is doing very well. She is still on sedatives and remains confined to staying in her kennel or on the leash (doctor’s orders) for another month. We go back to the surgeon mid-February to check the knee through physical examination and x-ray and receive instructions for her next steps in rehab. Thank you again for all of your support. The Shapard 5

Day 7 Update: We are beyond grateful for an anonymous donor who walked into BluePearl yesterday and paid the difference between our PlumFund amount and the actual cost of the surgery. Wow!! An amazing, and most gracious gift.... Whoever you are, Rachel and I are at a loss for words. Thank you, dear person (people?)🀷🏻‍♂️....and thank you to everyone who contributed to the PlumFund. Daisy is improving. One of her default moves...okay, her only move...is to roll over for a belly rub for any and everyone. She has not felt comfortable doing this since her surgery. Last night, she was able to roll over for the first time. She is walking, too, with more confidence.

Day 3: Daisy is definitely out of her post-surgery slumber and getting used to the sedatives, which means she is improving but tougher to handle at times. Regardless, she is still doing pretty well with the routine—all things considered. She is gradually putting more weight on her back left foot and leg than the first two days. In the posted picture, Mac is gently playing with Daisy while I ice her leg after her short walk and some brief stretching and rotation of joints, etc.

Daisy is home and resting. She is heavily sedated. Again, thank you for your support; we are very grateful. By the way, to enhance the Christmas 2019 “fun,” Daisy is having her first heat, thus the diaper in the picture...🀦🏻‍♂️. Some time ago, our surgeon and our vet advised spaying her after her recovery from this procedure.

Daisy update: The surgeon called mid-surgery. Evidently, Daisy did not tear her CCL in a classic sense. Instead, the place on the bone where the CCL attaches broke off. Likely a fracture of some sort—it eventually broke off...5 mm by 5 mm bone piece that is still attached to the CCL. The CCL itself remains intact. The surgeon is now reattaching the bone piece with a small screw (however, unlikely to stay in place because we can’t keep her hind leg still and straight for 8 weeks. He said studies show that you want to try and do this anyway because there is a small chance it remains in place and fully heals). The surgeon will still add the corrective piece appropriate to repair a CCL for a puppy (as prescribed). Dr. Aragon also said the last time he saw this kind of injury was 10 years ago. Yay!? More detailed info than you wanted to know, but thought I’d share due to the freak nature of the injury.

Oh my goodness! Well we will just pray it stays in place and completely heals. Thank you so much for the update. I promise I haven’t forgotten about contributing to this we just haven’t had it yet but as soon as I do I will be sending something.

Hi everyone, Daisy passed her skin exam today so no infection on the leg. She goes in tomorrow morning at 7:30 am for her surgery. She is first on the schedule. We’ll keep everyone updated on her progress. We greatly appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness. Grateful, The Shapard 5

Praying for a successful surgery this morning. Love to the Shapard 5

Hi everyone. Thank you for the texts, emails, and donations. Y’all are the best. UPDATE: They put Daisy asleep to prep her for the surgery. When they shaved her leg, they discovered an infection on her skin on the hurt leg. Nothing comes easy right now, I guess... Yadayada...antibiotics and the surgery is now scheduled for Dec. 20 w/a skin check on Dec. 19. 🀦🏻‍β™‚οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»‍♂️
