TODAY is the DAY! I cannot believe it is here!
BHRR's Maverick's SECOND leg surgery! Sean dropped him off an as the car drove away, all the dogs began to howl….it was a bit of an unsettling moment….
SO, please, everyone…..can, I ask for extra special positive vibes and thoughts sent his way for a great successful outcome?
HE is in the best hands with Dr. P……
Will update as I can………….
UPDATE: 1:00 PM
UPDATE: he is prepped and surgery shall begin shortly….as those who know me can say, I am not a nervous sort….this surgery has me worried…he put on over 30 pounds before his first one, lost almost all of that in recovery/rehab and we have battled to get him back up and my stomach is anxious. That type of howling we have heard only twice before…..
I love all my dogs….BHRR's Mav is a really super special boy to so many of us. He is in the best of hands….he has been told how much I love him….will update more as I can….
UPDATE: 5:30 PM
UPDATE: HE IS OUT OF SURGERY! OMG! YES! I cannot recall the last time I was this 'unsteady'….and uneasy….EVER!
There is no external fixator this time as Dr. P. put in a larger plate from when he did his first surgery. SO, IRON MAN he definitely is now!
He is just waking up……………photo's and copies of x-rays to post shall come soon!
THANK YOU everyone for being there today!!! My hands are trembling in relief and sheer gratitude!!!
UPDATE: 10:30 PM
I have him home and he is now resting….the dogs howled in a very similar way when Sean was helping me get him inside the house….very goosebumply…..
He was given at my request some buprenorphine before heading home. Dr. P. was so supportive in my desire to have him have stronger meds than he did the first time around. Cannot say enough about Dr. P. and all my lovelies at KAH! I truly work with some of the best of the best! Thank you from my soul and beyond for any possible consideration to his care……even a $1 donation is super!! His Bills shall be extensive! Yet, he is as deserving as any other dog out there of a helping hand.
