 An update from Elaine. Latest update below.

Leda appeared not to be in so much pain today and was a bit brighter. There was even a first tail wag since the accident when Carolyn came over to say hello.
Furkids are being far more relaxed over the money issue than the original specialist was. They know that there are a lot of donations being made and will not stop surgery because money is not upfront.
I will get a better estimate tomorrow when the head vet gets to see the new xrays. She is fairly confident that she will be able to do it and Leda will not have to go to another specialist, but wants to see some xrays from other angles to make sure she knows what is going on in there.
The emails with the xrays didn't arrive, but hopefully will have them tomorrow.
She was being put back on IV fluids as she was a bit dehydrated. It was what we were expected as she was not drinking or eating on her own.
I think she is in good hands down there.

I left my baby, but she was looking a bit perkier today.

Latest update from Elaine McDonnell.

Seems while I was chewing my fingers off yesterday afternoon, Leda was having her operation. Carolyn rang this morning to let me know she is doing fine and has started eating and drinking. Hip of course is still swollen and sore. Took a little while before I realised she had had it and Carolyn realised I hadn't been told. Saved me worrying about her being under anaesthetic.
More xrays tomorrow morning and if nothing has moved and she is still eating, drinking etc alright she may be able to come home tomorrow afternoon. If they aren't 100% happy she may stay in over the weekend.
Thank you so much everybody. Bad news: Should get the invoice on Friday as well and I find out what needs to be followed up. :D

 

Just heard from Elaine. She is on her way to collect Leda. It will be a round trip of about 4 hours. It is just after 11.00AM, Friday 8th February in Australia. They are 10 hours ahead of the UK. Will update again as soon as we get more news.

Two picture of Leda after her operation.

Photo: Another picture of Leda upon her return home...Thank you everyone for your help! We hope to post some more updates shortly!   Photo: The most recent surgery pics... The good news is, while painful, she's able to stand. The bad news is...now we wait to see if the clubbing issue resolves itself, and to get the new bills...At least she's home for now...

I nearly forgot. A big thank you to Gene for allowing me to post this. I have added a link to the vet bill so far. As we all know, it soon mounts up. Andy

Pay pal uses USD, so if anyone interested as you cannt put the £ sign in 30 USD = just under £20.

Hi Angela. Leda is in Australia. PayPal will convert any currency into Australian dollars when they arrive in the fund, but it just takes a little longer. Not a problem at all. Any currency will be most welcome. Andy

thanks for posting Andy, donation sent

Hi John. Thank you very much indeed for the donation. Andy

Just to let you know, Leda has had the operation to save her leg. She is doing well and is now eating and drinking.

Have added information under the pictures, that was sent by Elaine.

Wonderful news Andy for Elaine and Leda. With everyone helping out with the cost it will take away some of the stress on the family. A feel good story :))

Hi Dianne. I totally agree with you. I think it is wonderful that Leda's leg has been saved and she will not be a tripod. I think Elaine can relax a little now and hope Leda is running around again on four legs as soon as possible. Andy

Here is a video put together by our own Kenny Jarvis.

What a great job he has done.

Amazing!

I think so too, Astrid.

Thanks for the update Andy. Leda looks to be all good, our family and Irish will keep her in our prayers that her recovery goes well. :) We can learn a lot from the animal world they are so resilient when the chips are down. Look forward to the video but having trouble downloading it. Wonderful job you have done Andy helping Leda and keeping us updated. Dianne.
