Dog update

Many hours of waiting and one long vet exam later... the prognosis is good. Joy is way over-tired, strained, and swollen. She probably doesn't have spinal/disk issues. Because she requires the help of three vet techs to walk anywhere, she'll be staying at Pender overnight. This will also help ensure that the diagnosis is correct.

I am... relieved. exhausted. thankful.

And I say again, both Rosehill Veterinary Practice and Pender Veterinary Hospital are the most amazing establishments in the world of animal care.

ETA at 5 PM: I just talked to the vet tech. They put Joy on five tramadol, and now the dog is walking. She'll only take a few steps, but those are the important from-bed-to-bathroom type steps.
