My ER Visit

On Labor Day I was in the ER.
My left knee is crunchy.
I was trembling.

see, I'm weak and crooked.
I screamed in pain.
Mom shivers when I scream.
This is my chart.
Doc said I am going to have a gold plated name on a reserved parking
 space soon or a wing of the hospital named after me, BOL
So we arrived at the hospital.
They took my Lily.
I waited 87 hours.
I went home without my Lily cause we didn't 
know if she needed surgery on her knee.
Mom spoke to the surgeon and neurologist the next day.
Although creaky, no surgery, no pain.
Lily! Lily!
Hi mom, hi fatty
I'm better.
Going home.

Pee S.
Mom could be an ER tech by now.
You learn a lot owning Frenchies ($$$$$$$$$$$)

I have strong pain meds in case my knee goes out.
If it happens often, I will need surgery on it
(already had it on my right knee and twice on my back)

My back legs are weak, but no pain.
I ran when I got home until mom caught me.

  1. Oh Lily, are we ever sorry to hear you had to see the V-E-T for your knee. We hope that you will listen to your Mom and not run around like crazy (wishful thinking!) Hope today finds you pain free sweetie.

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  2. Oh Lily, your poor little knees. I wonder why they are giving you such troubles. You need to take it easy so you won't need another surgery. I will keep you in my positive thoughts!

  3. Oh Lily, you just keep having problems! How about you give yourself and your poor momma a break for a little while? Feel better!

  4. Oh Lily, you just keep having problems! How about you give yourself and your poor momma a break for a little while? Feel better!

  5. You poor, poor baby. You are incredibly lucky though to have a family that loves you so much...your chart is amazing!!!

  6. Oh lily we were so happy when we saw that picture of you trotting out to get in the car, please rest and take it easy, just have Edward wait on get your food, carry you toys to know brother stuff.............stella rose

  7. Bless your little heart. I can sympathize with your knee pain and hope you feel much better. ♥

  9. Lily, you beautiful baby, I wish you lived near by I would drag you to our vet he does acupuncture and he makes it all feel good. JD has a crunchy hip....

  10. Lily oh Lily holidays are meant for celebrating and spending time in the clinic is not a celebration. Lily you are definitely filling a book with all those records. Feel better fast.
    Thanks for being a friend

  11. poor sweet Lily - did they look at a cortisone shot in your knee

  12. Doggie knees can go out like quarterback knees our vet told us when Timmy's knee went out. Sometimes they just heel themselves without surgery. Hope that is what happens with yours.

  13. Whew! Glad your crunchy knee is feeling better, Miss Lily! Parental Unit last pooch, Carson the ornery Wire Fox, had his own personal credit card from MedVet, so she knows the feelin';-)

  14. Oh boy, Lily, the title scared me! I'm sooo glad you are back home and okay. We hope your knee stays strong and no surgery! Us Moms don't like to see our babies in pain! Give yours a big hug from us! Oh, and PS - your brother was very worried about you!

  15. That's little boy had to have that surgery....luckily he's been doing well for two years!!

  16. Oh Lily! I wondered what had happened!! You take care of that knee. No kicking Edward, OK? Xxxx

  17. Darn it! Hope you'll be feeling much better soon!

  18. Man, what a rotten holiday for you! That ER place is always spendy, but it is good it is there just in case. Hope your knee gets better.

  19. Thank goodness you didn't have to have surgery and got to go home. Take it easy on yourself, Lily!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  20. What a scare! We're thankful you didn't have to have surgery or anything. Please PLEASE be careful with that knee, Lily!!!

  24. Lily, we are so so sorry that you have the knee problems. Lady said there should be a wing at our clinic for her first dog who had a rare disease. She is sure that she paid to put at least one of his kids through university. Take care of yourself. We are sending you hugs!

  25. Lily? Did you ever go on one of those water treadmill things?? Bart did and it made him strong like bull. 'Course he liked water...How do you feel about water??
