Maggie had her appointment with Dr. Bookbinder and I am happy to report that the leg is healing! It isn't going as well as we hope, but it is going, which is better than doing surgery. Whew. They put her under for about 1/2 hr to get the x-rays and gave her a new splint. Much smaller this time around. We are to still limit her activities, but Maggie is coorporating with us on that! She is trying to get on the couch, bed and run around in the yard. We are going to have to get really strict with her. She will go back in three weeks and he will take the splint off and see how she does. Doc will have her walk around to see if the joint will support her and she isn't in pain. Please keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer.

This is for Alyssa:

Prayer for Our Animals Friends (With permission The Prayer Pet Line)

Heavenly Father, our human ties with our friends of other species is a wonderful and special gift from You. We now ask You to grant our special animal companions your Fatherly care and healing power to take away any suffering they have. Give us, their human friends, new understanding of our responsibilities to these creatures of yours.

They have trust in us as we have trust in You; We are on this earth together to give one another friendship, affection, and caring. Take our heartfelt prayers and fill Your ill or suffering animals with healing Light and strength to overcome whatever weakness of body they have.

Your goodness is turned upon every living thing and Your grace flows to all Your creatures. Grant to our special animal companions long and healthy lives. Give them good relationships with and if You see fit to take them from us, help us to understand that they are not gone from us, but only drawing closer to You. Grant our petitions through the intercession of good St. Francis of Assisi, who honored You through all Your creatures.
