Oh, My Mabel

Please, please, please bloggers: I am begging you all to pray, think, send good vibes…whatever positive thing you can do. My Mabel is in not good shape.

Yesterday afternoon she was hit by a truck. My poor husband watched it happen and then promptly sprung into ‘dad-mode’, didn’t panic and got her where she needed to be. 

She is breathing on her own, they don’t think there is any internal bleeding, and she’s pretty doped up.  Her back left leg though is destroyed.  Wade and I are currently faced with the decision to operate and fuse her leg back together or amputate.  We heard just now that her pelvis on her right side may be fractured as well. 

Any advice from the pet-people and the ‘I’ve been thru this’ people and anyone in general – please comment.
