Pipsqueak’s Surgery

Update posted by Antje Hockly On Jul 24, 2018

It is 11.13 am and I have just had a call from the Veterinary Surgeon: They did another X-ray to prep for surgery and there is no more evidence of a diaphragmatic hernia!!! I was like "WHAAAT?" She said, that on the initial X-ray the lungs were either so badly bruised/inflamed that it mimicked a break in the diaphragm or the hernia retreated which is rare but apparently happens! So after all this drama and the tears and heartache I can tell you that I can pick my Pippy up this afternoon! The vet wants to do another X-ray in a weeks time to make sure and leave the bandage on the rip cage for the time being but SHE CAN COME HOME!!! Wooooohoooooo!

So hopefully I am spared the R10000 for the surgery for good and my furbaby doesn't have to be cut open! When I come back this afternoon I will post a photo and an update regarding the cost.

Thank you to all of you who stood by and helped so selflessly!

Ja du, ich war vielleicht platt!! Ich habe heute morgen, als ich den Findling abgegeben habe schon gedacht, ’Mensch, sie sieht so fit aus". Bin sowas von froh wie Du Dir sicher denken kannst!

I went to see my little fighter this afternoon. She was soooo excited to see me. I even was allowed to take Pip for a little walk! Shame she was so sad when I put her back into her kennel though. She is breathing well, her heart rate is down and the vet is confident she will fully recover as she is now strong enough to tolerate the operation. I will post an update tomorrow after the surgery when I hear from the vet.
