    Baby molly got tangled in the electric ,pulled it down. Cut into her deep last night on her right hind. She's currently in surgery. Tendons are in good shape so are bones. What is most concerning is that there is infection in the cuts. The surgeon is opening her up to flush and clean and make sure all the tendons are in fact ok, and remove any debris from the wounds . the vet is most worried about the infection. Her white blood cell count is 75000 from the wound site. Normal would be around 1000.

    So please send prayers and jingles that the surgery and cleaning is good, and we will find out the prognosis after surgery & wbc tomorrow.

    I don't think I've been this heart broken in a very long time...

    Ough, that's awful. Jingling like mad. Dont' worry about the high white cell count, that tells you her immune system is working very, very well~!!

    Getting walked up to surgery.

    I'm just taking a rest in the truck now while we wait.. Should have some idea in an hour...

    The surgeon told my vet she is one of the best well behaved babies they have worked with. And I should be proud of my work with her. Of course that made me cry when I am trying so hard not to..

    So sorry she's hurt! For some reason I had this terrifying image of little Molly entangled completely in electric wire! Praying she'll be all good when it's over. :)

    She's cute! Remember there is nothing wrong with crying and it sometimes is the only way to let go of your fears. Please let us know how she's doing after the surgery.

    Thank you. When I found out the BO was going to feed dinner. They found her 3 legged lame. So she untangled herself. But did too much damage by then..
