I have been working flat out. And not getting on much since before xmas really.
bernie dislocated his knee 3 weeks ago. He did it chasing rabbits at dawn. So at least it was worth it in his books.
I was told initially, rest it. Then rest it and take these anti inflammatories for a week and we'll see. It will either of improved, or it wont, in which case he'll need surgery.
So now it operate time.
$3,320.00 IF all goes well. Likelihood of him having full recovery - im told his new knee will not be able to take the dog fun n games he adores.
And having to rest a very high drive dog is driving him nuts.
I feel shit. That i cant afford the surgery. We are back at vet tomorrow for pre surgery ax. I felt too ashamed to say i didnt have my insrance and couldnt pay. Though will have to come clean tomorrow.
Bernie does not know his knee is dislocated. Its sickening to watch him mobilise. But he just wants the ball, please, any time your ready mum, now'd be good! That sort of thing.
He shows no trace of discomfort in his demeanor. His knee joint rotating out and back into the socket makes my stomach lurch though.
What would you do?
Im lost, to close to this to work it out.
Ive asked about installments, but no fee, no surgery
