I Just Can't Believe It......nor Do I Want To!

I know it seems like an eternity that I posted.....life has been sooooo busy.....so many changes in my life....... I am trying to make it thru day by day......

 

Yesterday, Bullett was outside......did his usual "run around the pool" one time --- you know, we can't over-due it...he he..... and last nite, the right front leg started to swell at the joint, with him limping..... I figure, aaahh...just a sprain...no biggie...give him 2 baby aspirin (he is about 85 lbs now)...... does not seem to help. So I give him a Rimadyl (75 mg???) about 5 hrs later.....seemed to help a bit.... but this morning, he was still limping.

 

I call the vet..... they still have 2 hrs of hours on a sat am.......well, they are too busy...go to the e-vet...... great...... another huge bill...but you do what you have to....... so we go to the vet......sign in at 5:04 pm..... at 10 pm (and I was hot ....just waiting and waiting for even a doc to come in!!!!! :angryfire ) He comes in....listens to his lungs...and I see the look on his face...knowing it was not too good....almost like it was not a clear beat....... I let it go, not upset Ben.............

 

They take him back, do xrays of the leg --- of which the lovely techs mark incorrectly........L or R hmmm...which was it?????? ok...no biggie...I knew it was the right, and unless they had him lay on his tummy.... it had to be the right side...... with markings and shadings on it!! eeek.......knew almost instantly!!! Now, he is an ER doc, and wants me to check with a specialist..... but I had to ask for a chest xray..... gee....maybe should be putting the MD behind my name........ some idiotic docs sometimes......... One girl who worked there, lost her grey to osteo, same symptoms.....worked until 9...but stayed on, in the room with me and Ben until all the results were there. There were about 6-7 "shadings" in the lungs......damn!!! I said it last nite to my ex..... I thought that this is what is was..he said not a chance....but then again...what does he know.....

 

I have the disc, and the code #s and hope to get in touch with Dr. Couto this week, that he could maybe look at the disc and see what he thinks.... Please say a prayer that this is so unreal!!!!!! just a stupid mistake.......... When I lost my heart dog, Ramsey, thought life could not get any worse....geez, was I wrong! I am so heart broken and trying to stay strong for Ben......

 

I just changed my bedroom around, as my ex left....and wanted to change all memories...and framed the gorgeous pic of virtual col of quilts for Hope for Hounds--hung it right for everyone to see..........

 

If this is all true, Ben will suffer the most. Bullett sleeps with him every nite...next will be my mom...he is "her" heart dog....she always loved Boo!!! He has always been her favorite!!

 

please, just please, if I may ask...say an extra special prayer for Bullett for the next few days until we get to the bottom of it all.....

 

I truly, truly thank all of you.......

 

hugs,

I know just what you are going through. We got an osteo diagnosis on Tuesday for our girl Snickers. I kept asking the vet if there was any chance it could be anything else. After the initial shock and disbelief, I read as much as I could on the subject so I could be informed about what was the best thing for her. Not much else manifests itself like osteo unfortunately.

 

Dr. Couto is as wonderful as everyone here on GT says. I e-mailed them and they answered very quickly.

 

Circle of Greys is also a wonderful supportive group. Join right away.

 

Sending prayers for Bullett. :candle:candle:hope:hope

:cry1 Did you get him pain meds? Send it all to Dr. C asap and also talk with your regular vet first thing tomorrow morning. Talk directly with the vet. Let him know you are sending everything to Ohio State. You need him on board since he will work with them and he will be the one to give you pain meds.

thanks so much for all your prayers..concerns, everything!!!!! I sent all the info to Dr. C last nite (Thanks Mary Jo)....

 

I slept about 2 hrs total..........I just cannot believe it.....how can an animal be fine 3 days ago........ and then be "Filled" as the ER doc put it....... with this ugly, deadly monster????

 

Unfortunately, Miss Blast, who thinks she owns the house....would not let him up on the bed last nite........ but I made him a real nice fluffy comfy bed in my room now (no ex dh to argue about it, yeah!) and he slept..... pretty much all nite. Not me.....but at least he did.....

 

I had planned to go out shopping today....but just can't. I want to be with him...... My reg doc comes in on Tuesdays, so I will call tomorrow, and then again on Tuesday.....last nite they only gave the rimadyl, fortunately, I do have access to tramadol. (gee, sometimes that darn job is worth it!)

 

all I can say...thank you..........thank you..........thank you...........for all your prayers......... I know there has to be a reason...... I told Ben that Ramsey needs Bullett to protect him in Heaven........ Ben cried himself to sleep last nite----- broke my heart!

 

please keep praying......

 

hugs,

Terri :sad1

So sorry to hear of this !!

 

If you are unsure of the diagnosis..maybe a second opinion is in order....see what Dr. C says.

 

Prayers to you and yours. :f_red:candle:candle:hope:hope:hope:candle:candle:f_red
