Shyla is hoping that the plans get solidified very soon so I'm not so tense.
For perfectly understandable reasons, our east coast expert surgeon had to cancel his trip here. We have a back-up plan - a west-coast vet who is an "instructor" in the surgery that R needs. That vet seemed enthusiastic about traveling here when I talked with him about 3 weeks ago. I'm awaiting his reply to my latest call, asking that he head out here!
Shyla is begging him to come out and make her brother's elbow less painful.

I never dreamed that a surgery that we first started planning back in February of 2015 (more than a year ago) would end up being so very difficult to get done. It's now spring of 2016 (as you can tell by the elk who are shedding) with no surgery scheduled.
We have our fingers and paws crossed that we will manage to get things scheduled and that R's liver is actually fine. We want him to run freely again before too long!
