Lily's Lumbosacral Spinal Surgery

As you know, I had surgery on 
Tuesday, November 4.
I came home on Thursday.
We were so excited.
But I pooped in my crate two times when mom was 
driving on the freeway. 
We got home and I was resting.
Suddenly I threw up twice
The third time was blood and blood clots (enough to cover 1/2 a pee pee pad).
Back to the ER.
Mom was talking nerves, heart attacks, shaking etc.


My neurosurgeon said I most likely had a tiny ulcerated stomach due to meds and surgery and not to worry.
I needed to stop the prednisone asap.
 Mom worried.
So $6 million pennies later
I'm home.
Fatty won't let me out of his sight.
He tries to lay by me and was actually nutty enough to sit in my jail.

CAUTION..........
PICTURE.....................................
Lumbosacral Spinal Surgery
So I have 33 blings on my back.
Doc said he has never seen anything like this and does not understand how I was walking or 
doing pee pee or poopy on my own.
There is no place like home....
No place like home.
So...
meds....
Metroidazole
Sucralfate-belly stuff
Metoclopramide
Gabapentin
Tramadol once my Fentynal pain patch is removed

my regular Atopica allergy stuff

Thank you for all your thoughts, prayers, good vibes
positive thoughts and ju-ju's.

Love,
Lily (& Edward)

  7. Oh Lily sweetie! I've been there and surgery SUCKS! Your war wounds are very impressive girlfriend!! Mine were under my neck when I had my IVDD surgery so you didn't see them too often, but nasty just the same. We are praying for your swift recovery. It takes time, so enjoy the pampering we know your Mom and Edward are providing.

    Love,

  37. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Oh Lily, you are such a strong and brave Dog! We are so proud of you for going through that!

    Look at your back... I want to lick it better, but my person says this would not help. She says that sending love and wags and healing thoughts will help.

    So today when we climbed up to the Top of the World, Cobi and I stood on the edge and we thought of you. We though of how brave and strong you are, and how quickly we want you to heal. We sent sooo much love your way - we hope you felt it!

    ReplyDelete

So we're sending you some kitty purrs and your mom some kitty hugs.

  49. Oh Lily. I'm so glad that you're healing. We have lots of experience with that surgery in our house. First there was our chocolate lab, Acadia, many years ago. Then, there was me. I have a scar just like yours is going to be (except that yours will be covered with fur). I hope that you keep on healing, with Edward and your mom taking gentle care of you. I know they will.
