Wilma is Home!
We had to go to the vets at 3.30pm Thursday to discuss Wilma's condition with the vet.
The x-ray he showed us showed the pin which had been inserted on Wilma's right hip and the arthritic left hip.
We have to ensure Wilma does not jump up and displace the pinned hip in any way so the next 4 weeks are to be a time of complete rest for Wilma. What she shouldn't do is to put all her weight on the newly pinned hip.
In order for Wilma to receive the rest and peace she needs we are on 24/7 care. We will not be leaving her, one of us will be with her all of the time, sleeping downstairsso she does not try and climb the stairs.
Wilma is also on a number of pain killers, anti-biotics and sedatives.
We let her out to have a twinkle last night and were really pleased to see her walking in a way which the vet wanted to see.
We are so so proud of our little fighter!
