Hello Friends... I need some prayers for Scooter our swimmers Syndrome kitten... He is walking running and jumping and doing well.. Someone stepped on him yesterday by accident. I rushed him to the vets. His pelvis is fractured and his leg popped out of the hip joint.I had to leave him at the vets over the weekend.

They are sedating him and popping his leg back in the hip joint. They are hoping it holds otherwise he will need expensive surgery. The fractured pelvis should heal on it's own..
I worked so hard and for so many hours to get him to walk now this. He has had a lot to deal with in his 12 weeks... I am so upset about all this.
Please pray he is alright and does not need surgery.
Thank you all!! Suzanne

Update on Scooter. Doc was able to pop his leg back into the hip under anesthesia .. he has a sling on . His leg is under his belly bound up in a bandage.. Scooter needs cage rest in a small cage to heal his pelvis. In 10 days I bring him back to the vets to be knocked out again for another x--ray and they will change the bandage. Hopefully his leg will stay in the socket. We are taking it 10 days at a time. He is home here in a cage and very uncomfortable. Poor baby... I feel bad but so far so good. Hopefully he will heal fine.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. He still need them but doing better.
Thanks all! Suzanne

Still praying for the little battler, tears won't stop now reading this after reading Michelle and Jerri's posts and feeling so gut kicked by all the sad news.

Praying for poor little Scooter, I hate seeing or hearing of animals in pain and hurting. God bless you for caring so much for him, if he gets through this he is truly blessed. Shedding a few tears here and sending the Angel of God's Creatures to watch over him.
