    My weekend from you know where.. :(

    Sunday was just a normal day for us.. Sunday is also family dinner night. As usual, I fed the pups dinner & went to my family dinner. When I came home about 2 hours later, I notice Lucy was very VERY bloated. Her tummy was hanging on the ground. -picture-088-jpg

    I picked her up and immediately I could tell she was uncomfortable. So I rushed her to one of the local Pet ER (it was already 10 pm). When I arrived, i got sent to another Pet ER. I waited there for about 6 hours until i found out what was wrong with her. They took X-Rays & this is what we found.

    I went into a panic. They found 5 staples in her stomach. They were just any staples, but furniture/industrial staples. I got to thinking.. theres no where in my house that has those.. she can get under the couches & the chairs are high top chairs.

    I got reffered back to the original Pet ER for her surgery. We were hoping they could do it endoscoplically, but they couldnt.

    This Dr also noticed something else in her stomach, kinda of a cloudy thing.

    So about 6AM they did her surgery, so i went home to map. About 2 hours later they called and said she did fine & was recovering.. The Dr found 5 Staples, a piece of fabric (about 3" x 4"), a rock and 2 peices of plastic. I was absolutely shocked.

    I went and picked her up and brought her home..

    Shes officially on bed rest. Although today she isnt resting very much & poor baby is so hungry..
    she can only eat a teaspoon of chicken and rice every 2 hours..
    We are both exhausted

    Poor baby and you! I'm glad the surgery went well and she is home now. I always freak out and panic whenever I see Jax chewing on something that I know isn't food. Unfortunately, he thinks it is a game and wants to play chase instead of just giving me whatever it is he has.

    Oh no ! Poor baby & poor you. Maple always puts everything that she finds on the floor in her mouth. But so far we were lucky and it always came back out.(one way or the other)
    I am glad that the surgery went well & I wish you both good luck for the recovery! Poor little one...

    Oh my goodness! Poor Lucy and poor you! Glad to see she is on the mend and recovering well. You'd hope she'd learn a lesson from this but you know what Frenchies are like so probably not. Sending hugs x
