Little Bear had cortisone shots in his elbows today. The vet said things may look worse before they look better but if we’re going to see improvement, we should have some visible results by Friday or Saturday. He said that Little Bear’s condition is a severe flareup of osteoarthritis.
Little bear is disoriented and a little delirious from the effects of the anasthetic. It’ll be nice when the effects if the anaesthetic completely wear off and he’s able to relax and sleep. Only time will tell if this procedure is going to work, and for how long, but after a day of worry and sadness, tonight I am relieved that there is hope.
