Shelby Has Been At The Vets For Over A Day Now


Recommended Posts

Ay-yi-yi, poor Shelby, poor you, poor wife. None of you deserve this much grief. :grouphug

Wow, I'm so sorry you've had to deal with so much lately.

 

On another note, I attended a seminar at GIG and the vet neurologist said that anaesthesia isn't risky for older dogs, it's just a myth. However, I wouldn't want my grey to have to undergo surgery but I thought I'd mention it anyway...hoping Shelby will heal and feek better soon.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

Poor Shelbie! Life is just not easy right now! I am glad to hear she is at home for the healing process where you know what's happening and where she is most comfortable. All good thoughts being sent to the WHOLE family at this difficult time!

Bow Wow Wow Yippie Yo Yippie Yay :)

Kyle...continued well wishes as she recovers. I truly believe that the comfort of home is the best when owners are competent to handle wound management, etc. It is best that she is with those she loves and who love her!

Sorry to hear about the complications. I hope she's feeling better. It might look scary, but it sounds like she's on the road to recovery which is good.

Shelby is healing which is good. The dangling plastic drain is still dangling from her cheek but it's definitely done it's job. It's supposed to come out on Wednesday and of course I am not home to take her is so Lynn will have to. I know she is not looking forward to it.

Shelby is being brought back to the hospital as I type this. Lynn is taking her back in as she started bleeding badly again today and she had brought her in earlier in the day due to this and decided to bring her back home after they told her it should clot again but it hasn't and now it's getting out of control. So poor Shelby will be there overnight at least as I believe the tied off vein is bleeding again as the description from Lynn on the amount of blood tells me something else has gone wrong.

Oh no. :( Do they have a laser there? I don't know if that would help with a bigger vessel, but ... Maybe I'm just grasping at straws for you.

 

I've got all my limbs and digits tightly crossed for you all!!
