Well, I have been trying to get Summer to the vet for the last few days (possible UTI), but due to a lack of vets (one left for a position at Johns Hopkins) and the others on vacation, they have been booked solid. To make matters worse, I got my days mixed and we missed Summer's appointment on Monday. I thought is was last night.

This morning she was in pain, a lot of pain. When I picked her up she screamed. So I ran her to the E-vet that is 5 minutes away. Its not a UTI. They think its her back, possible disk issue. Here we go again. The good news is that she shows no signs of paralysis and still has deep pain. The neurologist will call once he has a chance to evaluate her and do imaging (x-rays, myleogram, etc.)

I'll update you when I know more.

We have good news and bad news...

Bad News:
The Myleogram CT scan showed two bulging disks near the lumbar/thoracic junction of her spine (nearly identical to where Murphy ruptured his). Summer will undergo surgery tomorrow afternoon to correct this problem. The surgeon will call us once she is in recovery.

Good News:
She shows no neurological problems like paralysis and loss of deep pain. She still has full function and is uncomfortable but only due to pain. Because of this, her post surgery outlook is very good. If surgery goes well, she should recover fully.

Currently she is resting quietly. If all goes well, she should be home Saturday morning.
