Just for a little bit because for the next 2 weeks, while recovering from surgery, he's only allowed to go outside for 'potty purposes' 3 to 4 times daily. The first thing he did when we went out was lay down on the grass in the sun. (Aww, my little sunbather❤️!). After he went potty, he lay down in the sun again, so we got a bath towel so his tummy wouldn't be on the grass, & enjoyed the sun together for a few.❤️
Surgery went well -(photo pre-op) visited him after and got to kiss him and tell him I love him and will be back 🖤
Quick clarification to friends who msg'd me re: lay post of screenshot to sister: when I replied 'Never' to 1st option euthanasia - This was minutes after I was informed (didn't mention pain etc., told me after surgery., dogs = happy in the moment (don't know prognosis)<-only way I can describe- I made the decision right there without hesitation- there was no question of quality of life after - He will definitely feel better than today and the last couple of days. (Otherwise not make it through the week.) (Have not read fb yet), but THANK YOU ❤️SO MUCH❤️FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND Love
Thank you very much for your prayers and good vibes. It really means s lot to me. ❤️ His heart is enlarged and bulging on left side. Bulge could be due to damaged valve , or (I forgot exactly) fluid pushing on wall? 2nd picture shows white circle @ top part of heart she is concerned about, may or may not be cancer. Blood tests show possible liver disease OR the 2 concerning parts on test related to liver MAY be result of the heart disease. Red blood cells are low. Sending X-rays & test results off & hopes the results are "not as dire" as she thought (her words) & that it is something treatable. She will call me tomorrow probably later in the day when she gets them back. No explanation for what I originally brought him in for, (more concerned w/how he looked (weight loss) &his heartbeat) & inserted fluids & medication into back of neck, something similar to electrolytes for dehydration, & something for nausea and lack of appetite. Thank you again for the kind words & wishes, I read them all❤️
Dr. said it is more serious than sick from bad water and she is very concerned. His heartbeat is too fast & doesn't match his pulse. She did an ultrasound on heart and saw no fluid, which she was looking for. He is now having chest X-rays to see heart.better & blood work done. Sending to cardiologist and adding a 'STAT fee' to have results rushed.
Gonna be here a while...🕘🕝🕢🕜 Guy next to me called "Hello! Welcome to the mental health hotline, press this or that" on SPEAKER PHONE just as I was heading to the restroom... Speaker phone? Well, everything seems to be fine now..:)) (Except for the cussing guy, but I have a feeling that's just his everyday personality..😛) #waiting
Chip drank water last night & this morning when I put it in front of him. He refused any food for over 24hrs, but just now I fed him pieces of drumstick I made him last night. I tried to sneak RICE, pieces of dog food, & pieces of treats in, but he turns his head away from them. Called his Vet office 1st thing this morning & described the last 30hrs, & they will fit him in @ 2:30.
