Calling All Angels - Urgent Purrs Needed UPDATE

***Scroll down for the latest update***
This morning as Maggie May was running upstairs to the bedroom to eat her breakfast, I saw something that knocked the wind right outta my chest. Maggie was limping. The kind of limping she did last year before her surgery. We let Maggie have her breakfast then put her in the carrier with Stuie the pig and left the house. It was 7:30am and we got to the vets office as they were opening. Right now I am just waiting to hear from Dr.W. I'm assuming xrays are in order to check her knees. She was just there on Wednesday of last week for a tummy issue and he felt her knees and they were fine. We need all the purrs and prayers we can get right now. I will update as soon as I hear something.

Update on Mags!
Good news...... Dr. W did an xray of the right knee and felt both knees and they are still in place! He said the limping could be that she may have pulled something or even her right knee may have popped out then popped back into place. The right knee is swollen compared to the left one. The plan of action is to give Mags Metacam, an anti-inflammatory, and also a new product called Feline Joint Gel. It looks a lot like laxatone, so hopefully she will eat it right up.
I had been giving her supplements ever since her last surgery in September, but stopped them recently to see if they were causing her upset stomach. I will not make that mistake again!

Thanks to all for your purrs, prayers, and kind words. I will keep ya'll posted!!
