new at this tripawed thing

Our youngest member of our fur family “who has had issues ever since we brought her home” has just recently became a tripaw.  Lets start from the beginning. June 2015 Nibbles was found and taken from a dogs mouth and we took her on as a foster, we took her to the vet and we were told she would not survive “she was bruised all on her underside, her left leg was not stable {floppy}, and there was a small bite hole on her side”.  We brought her home and made her as comfortable as we could, she made it through the night and then the next and the next……days, weeks, and soon a month had passed. She lived!!  A few months later she had fractured her pelvis, after weeks in her porter she was freed only to take a ride in the dryer a few short weeks later “all was good” “thank God”.   She has had a good life since then. We decided to make her a forever member of the family, got her spayed, with minimal complications she survived it.  One year old now living life to the fullest she still favored her leg, occasionally limping, not bending it “we were told she had no knee that is why she did that”, but happy nether the less. Then on Aug. 12th we woke up and something was definitely wrong. she was limping real good not baring any weight on her leg. Another visit to the vet, she had broken her femur. We casted it for the weekend, but she was miserable and couldn’t move much, The vet gave us options and amputation was the only one we would do.  One week into having a tripawd.
