my dog had to go into surgery today because she kept throwing up, and I was on the verge of a panic attack and throwing up the whole 2 hours. I still feel so sick and shaky. I wasn’t able to see her before her surgery, and I was just so worried that something would go wrong
the vet found that her stomach and possibly her esophagus are extremely ulcerated and she might have aspirated some of what she was throwing up, so it might be in her lungs. They are going to keep her at least over the weekend to keep giving her IV medication and see where it goes from there.
I wish I knew what caused all of this. The vet said she might have eaten something, but she isn’t entirely sure. But what in the world would she have eaten?
Anyways, I am going to go see my baby later (around 2 hours from now) when she isn’t so doped up and won’t even recognize me. I wish I could just stay with her at the vet overnight and just sleep in the same room as her, but I know that isn’t an option… I just want to be with her and make sure she isn’t lonely and scared.
I will give her huge kisses for everyone on here who wished her well. Everyone in my life is so worried about her, too. All of my friends and family sincerely love her. She is honestly the sweetest dog I have ever met, and people always tell me that too. Even the vet was surprised by how sweet she is. Even though it took me a very long time to truly bond with her, I care about her more than anything and I just need to see her better. It was so hard to sleep without her last night, as she is usually curled up under the blanket with me… I want to bring her home with me today so badly, but I know I can’t give her what she needs here.
Thank you everyone for your support, it really means a lot to me.
