Licking his Wounds, Nacogdoches TX
I got to have breakfast with Sala yesterday morning and take a few photos of his bionic leg. He’s doing great! I was very surprised to see the vet tech come walking out of the office with Sala following behind on a leash. Technology is so amazing. They put in 5 pins and an external brace to realign his tibia and transfer all of the weight to a carbon fiber rod. So with the help of some pain meds, he was limping around on his own just fine and putting a little bit of weight on it. The doctor showed me the x-rays, and has assured me that this injury will not slow Sala down once he’s healed up in six weeks.
Thank you for all of your support while we went through this tumultuous weekend. Your well wishes on facebook especially were very comforting while we were still in search mode. I hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend!
