The good news is that Lucy does not have any internal injuries. She does have a cut on her tongue which is why she was bleeding.
The more difficult news is that her left hind leg was broken into 4-5 fragments. We were given the option of a referral to a surgeon who with plates and screws could try to put it back together which would be a long and painful recovery or our vet could amputate her leg. Once it heals she won’t be in pain and should be able to manage very well.
Greg and I went into this wanting what was going to be best for Lucy. I asked the vet if this were her kitty what would she do and she didn’t hesitate to say amputate. Given Lucy’s age it’s simply what is going to be best for her. She has surgery tomorrow and if all goes well we should be able to bring her home on Saturday.
The best news was that Dr. Coder said that she is in excellent health for a 16 year old kitty.
Once again thank you!
God bless you and yours. ~ Margret
