Good News

Good news today! After pestering the Colorado State specialist incessantly, I received a brief email saying that she thinks that Shyla's bone lesion is consistent with a "healing fracture", perhaps from a fracture that happened fairly long ago and was recently re-injured.
Shyla flapped her ears in happiness! Of all the options, that was the best. We'll still have to keeping following the bone lesion to make sure that it doesn't change in a bad way - but, for now, no more worrying about Shyla's leg for me.
Of course, our first question was, when can Shyla start running like normal again? I don't have an answer to that one yet. Our regular vet is going to talk with us tomorrow.
I'm so relieved that we aren't talking about bone cancer. The anniversary of K's diagnosis on Christmas Eve last year is weighing heavily on me. Now, I don't have to worry that we're facing a similar holiday heartbreak.
As you can see from these photos, Shyla and I were up before the sun today. We greeted its first rays from a high plateau with views of the mountains and the eastern plains. I adore seeing sunrise, especially with a chocolate pup by my side!

  5. We're so happy you got this good news! Don't understand why it took them an entire week to get this report to you, but so relieved for you. I hope Shyla will be able to return to a normal exercise routine soon. It's so difficult to keep a young, energetic dog quiet! Happy holidays!

  14. I'm so thrilled for you! Give Shyla a hug for me. :) An old injury that was reinjured actually makes a lot of sense for a puppy, especially if no one knew about it the first time. I hope that you and Shyla can go out and make some new happy memories on Christmas Eve that will help you enjoy the magic of the season!

  15. Oh, I'm SO GLAD! My ears would flap for joy as well!


    (though I must say, the picture that accompanied "When can Shyla run as normal?" made me think of the old "Doc, when can I play violin?" joke.... ^^)

  43. That's great news. Now I wonder how she fractured her leg in the first place, and if it has anything to do with her shyness or fear of children.
