Getting Patched Up

Bandit is at the vet hospital now. I dropped him off this morning for his surgery, and he will be staying there overnight. The doctor called me earlier to let me know that the surgery was completed and that all went as planned. He said that once the bone heals (in approximately 2 months), Bandit will be able to jump, run, and do anything else he would normally be able to do.

This is the x-ray of Bandit's broken bone:

To think, he went at least a week with this injury. It makes me very sad to think about it.

Here is a video of Bandit this morning being dropped off at the vet's:

And one of him coming to our home for the first time yesterday, straight from the shelter:

Thank you to those who have already donated to Bandit's medical fund. I think we have raised $255 so far. I have heard from many who have fallen under Bandit's spell, and it really feels good to know that others see in this great, soft-spoken dog what I see in him. (I will reply to everyone as soon as I catch up on everything--I promise!)

Poor Bandit! That x-ray is painful to see, I can't imagine what he actually felt. Heal fast, Bandit! And make sure to give your foster mom some kisses when she picks you up, she's doing a great thing.
