percy survived the surgery

Posted: March 22, 2012 at 5:54 pm

he is still pretty dopey but up on his feet. two of our vets and their vet tech came to do the surgery and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts for working so hard to save the prince of saints.

and now we wait and see..will the sutures hold together?, will he herniate again during his healing? will he develop pneumonia from aspirating some of the fluids he was bringing up during the time on his back??

and big thx to mo, laura, nicole, brent, ryan, janice, renee, krista, janette and isabelle (did i forget anyone???..jeez i am so brain dead now!) for not only being here with him but for all chipping in to do what ever needed to be done to help him…plus all of the so kind well wishes…it is truly amazing the love and concern of so many people for one (pretty damn special) jersey steer.

the vets will be back first thing tomorrow to check him and load him up with more pain meds.

percy has had the very best chance to get well again.

i bought him one of the lotto max tickets..if he wins he will share it with all of his super surgical team!

our baby.

    Poor sweet boy. That is my favourite picture of him, so tiny.

  • Janice says

    The vets were AWESOME!! They helped lay down that big boy with quick and yet gentle ease as soon as he was feeling the effects of the sedation. No doubt to prevent Percy from falling down and causing further injury. I was really impressed with every one of them. It was hard to watch, from start to his standing up. Not the surgery, but the vulnerability of this gentle giant.
    Carol, you know i am home so if your doing a night vigil, call me and we will set up camp out there.

  • My prayers and wishes go out to Percy. Thinking of you tonight .

    I’m so glad that Percy came through the surgery. What timeline is there for Percys’ recovery. Off topic, but how is Daphne doing, I have a thing for daxies, especially cute little ball playing daxies.

  • Pam, Nashville, TN says

    Sending big hugs & prayers to Percy that he may recover and quickly.
    Carol, I don’t know how you do what you do. You have had such a tramatic week and my heart goes out to you.
