surgery tomorrow - please think good thoughts for Bruno & I

Postby brunomom » Thu Jun 10, 2010 11:43 am

Remember the corn cob he at over 10 days ago? Well he was puking again this morning. It has been on and off since it happened. And I finally asked my vet for an xray. Sure enough...he has a decent sized chunk of something (ahem - corn cob) rolling around in his stomach. The vet thinks it is acting like a tumbling plug of sorts. So one day he'll feel good and eat and poo. Then the next he won't.

Bottom line is that he is having surgery tomorrow morning to have it removed. I am beside myself. I managed to stop crying long enough to take my husband's call but when my best friend called I totally lost it. I know it's silly since there is nothing I can do to change any of it...but you guys....he is my canine soul mate. He is so special. I have never had a pet that has given me such joy so the idea of him being put under the knife is just making me sick.

Please think good thoughts for us both. I trust my vet so much and I know he is great. I just really wish this hadn't happened. :(

I already made a post but don't see it now :huh?:

so..
I am keeping Bruno in many prayers that the surgery goes well and he is soon home and well (plus a very fast and smooth recovery too)
p.s.
I hope the person that gave him the corn cobs are, at the very least, helping to pay for all the exta vet visits and surgery??
try to stay clam so you don't put any more stress on your baby boy tomorrow. if your like me, you will loose it as soon as you the leave the vet's office with the empty collar and leash in your hand. :crybaby:

hugs to you and Bruno

I'm confident the surgery will go well.

If you haven't dropped him off already, I agree that you should try to calm yourself. Think happy thoughts...then when he's out of sight lose it if you have to...but don't leave him with you feeling like that. He'll know.


Let us know as soon as you can.
