Well, I just thought I would post an update for those who remember. Our Boston, Lucy, had surgery for her luxating patella in October. It's been a little over a week now since her 6 week post-op check and x-rays. They said everything healed great! So, now she can finally do stairs and have free reign of the house again. So, thanks for all your help and advice. We're glad to be done with this chapter.
