Tasha update

Post by sighthounds & siberian » Sun, 18 Feb 2007 00:31:30



Tasha had her left front leg amputated very early Tuesday morning.
She came through the surgery fine and came home Tuesday evening (we'd
have preferred her to stay until Wednesday, but vet said she'd do
better at home - they had to sedate her Monday to keep the IV in).
Wednesday and Thursday she ate very well and seemed to be making slow
progress, but today she isn't eating, is very restless and is having a
lot of trouble getting around.  We're limited in the amount of pain
meds we can give her because of her kidney status.  I guess things are
still pretty much a toss-up; I certainly felt more optimistic
yesterday than I do today.  

Thanks, everyone, for your crossed paws and fingers and good wishes.

I think recovery from surgery doesn't tend to be linear; there are always
bad days mixed with the "improving" days, and hopefully today is just one
of those. I know it must be miserable for you to see her in pain and to
worry about her recovering. I hope she is back on the upswing soon. My
thoughts are with you.

Heh.  I've had several surgeries in the past few years, including
brain surgery, so I know that and wouldn't worry about a setback like
this except that we don't really know what's going on with her
kidneys.  If she doesn't eat and doesn't drink, that's not going to
help her kidney status at all.  Also, I gave her a pain pill an hour
ago, and she's agitated, panting and whining, and she hasn't done that
since she got home.  

Whatever happens will happen.  We felt we had to give her a chance,
knowing it might not succeed.

My best wishes go out to you and yours. All things that can be crossed
are.

PS - Do you know how cruel it is to drop a piece of information like
that (...brain surgery...) in a thread like this?? Totally removes the
right to make smart-alecky comments.

No it doesn't - - anything worth living through is subject to joking
about!  

I'm pretty sure that Tasha is in acute renal failure.  Unfortunately,
our vets are at lunch until 2 pm, and DH doesn't want to try to get
her in anywhere else, as he doesn't think an hour will make any
difference.

Oh, Sally... this thread made my heart sink.  I'm deeply sorry Tasha is
doing so poorly.  My thoughts are with you all.

I am so sorry to hear this.  I hope you are wrong.

In any case, I think you did the right thing, getting her the surgery and
all.  Our thoughts are with you.

Sally,

I've been away from the computer for a few days and just read this update on
Tasha.  I do hope that she has made it through the crisis.
