9/22/22 – Prayers for Maddie. We were contacted before we had to put a hold on future medical cases. She had been rescued by a very kind person after being seen hit by a car on I-94. Her rescuer took her to an emergency hospital and paid for an x ray which indicated a fractured tibia. Her leg was splinted and the rescuer was advised to see an orthopedic specialist. The rescuer then contacted us. First we tried to see if our “go to” doctors who do some orthopedic surgery could help but that was unsuccessful. Then we tried specialists to get a consultation — did she need surgery or could the fracture heal without a significant impact to her quality of life? That was taking too long and Maddie now needed to have the splint re-wrapped so again we authorized a visit to our doctors at Patterson Veterinary to at least re-wrap the splint and provide pain medication if needed. Well, thankfully, Patterson worked it out for Maddie to be seen the same day of my authorization. Dr. Lynch saw Maddie and decided that a pin would work and asked if we could cover that and I authorized the surgery. Tomorrow she will have her surgery. Maddie is a very sweet girl who will now have a wonderful home and, hopefully, a long, loving life. – diana.

P.S. We still have a stoppage on helping with new cases but as I’ve said we will follow through with prior requests and our commitments.
