Just seeing this now, Kyle! Oh boy...I hope everything is cleared for her today. Second guessing ourselves after the fact is too tempting. You did the right thing by being cautious and proactive, regardless of the twist in the outcome. Hoping she is feeling much better now.


Edited to add....you aren't allowed posting in H&M anymore...sending positive vibes for more EEG or C&F postings from you guys!

Oh, Kyle! Please don't play that guessing game! Focus on Shelby - she needs your positive energy. She just wants you to make her feel that everything is going to be fine. It is........................

Sending best wishes for Shelby. I understand the second-guessing, I think we've all been there for one thing or another, but you know you did the right thing.


I hope she is home soon!

Shelby is home. We decided to bring her home even though the vet working yesterday would have liked to keep her another day just in case but we thought she would do better at home. When we picked her up, we were shocked to see what she looked like. Not what we expected at all so please brace yourself for some photos.


This was on Thursday night at home a couple hours after bringing her home. There was hardly any swelling when we left the vet that day. It got worse the next morning so we brought her back to the vet.

























And when we picked her up yesterday afternoon







She is home and resting now. The drain is doing what it is supposed to do so after Lynn cleaned her face some of the dry blood, overnight it bled again and so there is a bunch more. It turns out there was a vein that was bleeding and they did have to go back in and tie it off three times. This surgery should not have gone this wrong but unfortunately all surgeries have risks and complications can happen. She is eating, sleeping and going outside with even a short run this morning so she is feeling okay. Thanks for the well wishes everyone.

Poor baby girl. And poor you and Lynn. Shelby may look a bit worse before she looks better, but I bet she'll only be feeling better from now on. Being home has got to be a relief for her...and you.

e-w-w-w-w....that does look icky, poor girl. But she's still the lovely Shelby and looks mightily happy to be home.


Now we pray for good biopsy results. :goodluck

Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.
