Clover's Other Knee is Gone

Yep... as happens a fair amount with any cruciate injury, with or without surgery, Clover's "bad knee" is now his "good knee" because the non-surgery side blew his cruciate last night.

Spent a good amount of time at my vet today discussing the newly injured knee and the knee that was fixed last year, and the verdict is that Clover is awaiting an appointment in Franklin for knee surgery #2.

If it was a partial tear, or if he had a really tough time with surgery or recovery last time, I'd certainly be resting him and hoping to avoid it, but, not the case. Almost an easier choice this time, knowing that the surgery was the right choice last time and this knee is looking just like that one.

Sigh... just needed to vent. Would have been nice if he waited until the first knee was paid off before I needed to pay for the second, but, like any Hav, he's always giving 100%...

Good luck with the surgery.

That is sad news! I'm sorry you and Clover will have to go through this again. The recovery is long and challenging, I'm sure. Keep us posted as to when the surgery will be, o.k?

So sorry to hear about Clover. I hope this is Clover's last surgery. Poor you, it is always soooo hard to keep them resting.....and now you have to do it again.

Both of my havs have had hip and leg surgeries. Milo had hip surgery for LCP, and Brook went through three casts for her broken leg. I feel your pain. Things will get better in time. We'll all be wishing for a speedy recovery for Clover.
