We are stressed. After losing Reekie and Baxter we feel we may lose more of them. I posted this in a message post but will here too in case you are busy and can't get back.
Not real good on the chins. The vet has decided, due to their age and increasing medical problems, that he will have to change how he sedates them for surgery. He is giving them injectable sedation and using less gas.
He is putting off surgery on Bun as she is too high risk. She had a spell there due to anxiety and was freaked out and having trouble breathing. She is not feeling well today - not eating well. I'm trying to baby her. Squeaker and her are fighting too which they never do. I may have to separate them.
He found that Blocker has a heart murmur and mildly enlarged heart and he had to do her teeth. She is eating okay but we have had to start her on vetmed and she is fighting us on it. She is wheezing today. We added some sugar to it but she doesn't want it. Any suggestions on how to get it down her?
Porkie seemed to tolerate the new type of surgery well and he doing the best - eating better than Blocker or Bun.
Squeaker already has a bad heart and she is doing good right now. The meds have really helped her and we are hoping it will for Blocker too. He is thinking Bun may end up having it too.
Yes, I have missed you too and think about you a lot. I hope things are going better for you too. I worry about the stress you are under - physically and mentally with Shandi and your FIL. I'm here if you want to talk.
"Progress. Just make progress. It's okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It's okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again --- and again. Just make sure you're moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps, but at least take steps that keep you from being stuck. Then change will come. And it will be good." -Lysa Terkeurst
