    Default Brandy update

    Well we have visited the little guy in hospital and I'm very pleased to say that's so far he's doing great! Actually he's the happiest I've seen him since the initial operation which just goes to show that he must have been in pain since the beginning and me and the vet was just putting it down to post-op discomfort.

    Anyway they finished operating on him on 1.30 am on Saturday morning and the vet rang me a couple of times throughout the night to keep me informed on how he was doing, the next couple of hours were going to be crucial and so far so good. We saw him yesterday afternoon and again this morning and he was barking his head off -.

    Now, because they had to remove some bowel and stitch/join the ends together the big test will be when they give him some solid food to eat. He cannot vomit it up and he has to poop. That will be today hopefully.

    Also, with major abdo surgery like this there still is a danger of sepsis and infection so really even though he's in great form right now he still might crash. But YES, so far so good.


    He was DELIGHTED to see us but incredible sad to see us leave and we could hear him howling as we closed the door behind him. We hated leaving him there.

    AND
    WE may even have him home on Tueday.

    AND THANKS ALL for all the wonderful messages of support - they have obviously helped Bran XXX

    So Big HUGGIES and KISSES to all of you from all of us.
    (But keep sending them till we know he's home safe and sound)!!

    Thanks for the update. We will keep Bran in our prayers that this is a very healthy healing time for him. I told my daughter about him and started crying. She thought one of ours was in trouble.

    Oh thank goodness - we are all worrying about him here. Relieved to hear that he is doing a bit better, let's hope he keeps his spirits up and manages to eat something and pass it ok.

    Please keep us posted - still sending lots of positive thoughts and huggles for the special wee guy.

    Thank goodness he's doing well, so far. I trust that the vet is paying for all care as it's all down to himself or a colleague. There should be compensation, too. It can't cancel out Brandy's suffering, but could be donated to help another animal in need of sepcial care.
