  1. Rose: dog needs surgery

  2. Rose: dog needs surgery

    Today, Rose has had a set back, 1 liter of fluid was removed from her today, and she was not looking as well as she did earlier this morning when I was there to visit and feed her. Judy, I took a bandana to Rose yesterday that I wear when I work or ride my motorcycle with my scent and she is wearing it The doctors are discussing an option of inserting a shunt into her, and that is another surgery. Rose did not have much of an appetite this afternoon when I went back to see her. Let's see how she does this evening and with prayers hopefully tomorrow she will be doing well and have some positive updates from the doctors. Thank you all for your continued support, and prayers Pete and Rose
  3. Rose: dog needs surgery

    All, Rose had her surgery yesterday, and after 3 1/2 long hours Rose was out of surgery and in recovery. The Vet told us her sodium level was low and would have to monitor and replenish with proper medication. This morning around 4:00 AM I received a phone call that Rose's blood pressure had dropped, when i heard those words my heart dropped. I was told that she was stablized but it was difficult to absorb all that and to think Rose was alone without me. I was informed that they stablized her . I went in this afternoon to see Rose and was told that she was going to need a transfusion , her Albumin was low ( Albumin is used to treat or prevent shock following serious injury, bleeding, surgery, or burns by increasing the volume of blood plasma. This medicine can also replace low blood protein.) and it would be costly! Our local newspaper San Diego Union Tribune did a story on Rose and I; the story was on how I did not give up and how I scrambled to get the money to save my dog. With the generous donations on IMOM.org Fundraiser at my friends bar and the help from family, friends and the community, Rose was able to get the transufsion. I was able to see her and feed her from my hand twice today Rose is fighting to beat this as I am fighting to get the money to save my dog. Rose will be in the hospital for the remainder of the week, and is still not out of the woods yet, but VAC doctors and their staff are doing a tremendous job on Rose as they are still giving love and attention to their other patients. Thank you all for your love and support Hugs and Paws Pete and Rose
