Momo February 15, 2007

Posted by jyu in Uncategorized.

Have to cancel two meetings this morning to take Momo to the Dr.  Momo somehow injured her right shoulder.  She has been limbing for a few days.  I thought she just gets numbed on her feets because of sleep.  Finally noticed that she had trouble walking last night and made the appointment the first thing this morning.

The doctor gave her a shot to relief her pain and then took three X-rays.  Turns out that she had a fraction of bone stick out  in there.  The doctor said that there are only two options.  One is surgery to remove it.  The second one is medication.  He said it’s probably not a good idea to do a major surgery like this in her age since it might be hard for her to recover from the surgery.  Therefore, we decided to put her in medication and go back after two weeks. 

Shoot an email to Jen and explain the situation.  Jen is crying on the phone.  She doesn’t want Momo to be in pain all the time.  I told her we don’t have a choice here since Momo is too old to take the surgery even if she wants to spend the money. 

It’s so sad to have to see Momo limbing and be in pain like that this morning.  Completely breaks my heart.  It really hit me big time to realize that Momo is getting that old.  I told Jen if the medication is not working out or if the situation gets worse, I don’t want to be the one to put her down.  I just can’t put myself through that…
