Exclamation Roxy in UCD ICU AGAIN...

Hey everyone. As most of you already know, Roxy (the Yorkie) has been dealing with a lot of issues. Pancreatitis, Pneumonia, and Esophageal Stricture. She has now had a total of five surgeries. She will have her sixth on Monday.

Her stricture returned last week after she eat her poop. I know, nasty. I have no idea what to do in order to get her to stop eating her poo. So any suggestions that dont involve fruit would be great.

Please countinue your prayers. I am hoping and praying that she does NOT need her feeding tube for the rest of her life. At this point, that is how it looks. And I would hate for her to live that way.

The more prayers and positive thoughts I can have come our way would be helpful. Because mommy isnt feeling so positive at the moment.

Thanks again for all of your sweet messages.

PS Bugsy (Havanese) is hanging in there. He was very depressed a few days ago so I took him to my mom's house so he could play with his Hava-Homies. lol Which perked him right up. Such a sweetie. He has helped me through this in more ways then I think he even knows.

I'm so sorry to read this. Shoot! I was hoping that "no news, was good news" I will be praying for that little girl to get over all of this once and for all. She's been through way too much already.

Hang in there, friend.

Thanks. Its breaking my heart. They can feed her (thankfully) through the feeding tube. But I dont want that to be a forever thing. So, I am hoping we will have more answers to our hypothesis's...

Im so scared. Worried. Stressed. Hurt. Confused. Tired. And I can only begin to imagine what Roxy is going through... Scared... hurting... suffering?... exhausted...

She gets excited when she see's mommy. Because she knows for an hour, mommy will hold her, love her, and allow her to sleep soundly. And that makes me happy, and depressed at the same time. I wish I could be with her more... but they take her away. Week days your only allowed an hr. weekends your allowed two. Its heart wrenching.

Not sure how much more both of us can handle. I just pray we get through this quickly, and that she is all better, and this is a distant memory.

Thanks for letting me vent. There is so much going on, and I haven't been able to get a lot off my mind.

I just hope that everything I am doing is right for her. I am second guessing myself every step of the way. Wondering if I didnt do this... this wouldnt have happened... If I had only watched her that wouldnt have happened... if only.

Aww Sarah, Please don't beat yourself up, I believe that all things happen for a reason, and I hope you will find out that reason soon. Like maybe there will be something else found that if this didn't happen you would have never known Please know that you and your little girl are in my thoughts and prayers I can tell you that I understand what you are going through and it is not easy, but I pray that you stay strong too for yourself as well as little Roxy. Big to you!

Oh Sarah, this is terrible. I thought you were almost out of the woods. Heather is right about you not beating yourself up. Roxy wouldn't be here if you hadn't been so vigilant about rushing her to the vet each time you noticed something wrong. My heart is breaking for you and Roxy. I hope her surgery goes well. She is a tough little fighter. Hang in there!
