We've been in kind of a holding pattern for the past few days. The lack of sleep is similar to what we experienced when she was 9 weeks old and we brought her home from the breeder. The good news is that the swelling has decreased significantly. She still won't put weight on the leg, but we're hoping she will start using it soon. The vet will be re-evaluating her knee next week. *fingers crossed*
