It's been six weeks since Morgan tore the ligaments in her knee. We've tried to keep her very quiet during that time and we carry her up steps. She's had a reduction in her food to try to drop a few pounds. A lighter body means less stress on the joints. She's been doing well and I've been able to cut her pain medication in half.
Yesterday I took her to the clinic to have Dr B assess her progress. He was pleased with what he saw. She's putting about 75% of her weight on her leg again when she walks. He examined her and when he stretched out her leg then bent it, I winced, but Morgan showed no overt signs of pain.
