Cooper is such a special boy, any of us would want to keep him wub

I know that you have your hands full right now hugging I also know that this is impossible advice, but do try to focus on yourself and the things that bring you joy (like the moo and the coop) hugging

Bianca,

I am sending strength, courage, peace and wisdom your way! hugging

That does sound like a long time for Coop to stay at the vet but it will be a lot less stressful for you at home. Massie went through several major surgeries (including a total hip) and I brought her home the next day from each one. I have to say that I was TERRIFIED I was going to mess up the aftercare instructions, especially with the total hip replacement. I don't think a slept a wink for the first few nights she was home.

Hang in there and do your best to take things one day at a time and as Lisa says, please remember that in order to take care of those pups you need to take care of yourself!

Hang in there!

Please make sure you'll drink enough water and you breathe, and take some time for yourself and for Ms Moo. butterfly

I got Chippy home the day of his leg surgery and it was very hard. The worry about doing something wrong, it was very stressful. The hospital had made an exception b/c they knew me and felt I could handle it, to reduce cost for the rescue organization as he was my foster, and b/c he was between severely underweight and emaciated and needed home cooked food hand fed so he would eat. I had some time off the office and could do it, but it took full time attention at first. The kind of post-op care he needed was all new to me.

At the hospital, Coop will get the care he needs from professionals who have cared for many patients with his surgery and know what to do. And you'll get daily (hourly?!) bulletins. I am thinking of you. Chippy says 'Hi Coop, hang in there, it'll be alright, do your PT, and you'll soon run like the wind again!'

Awwww thank you all so much my friends now I am crying laugh hugging hugging

Well the good news is the surgeon hasn't called me yet (it 3.30 pm) here so I'm guessing it's not happening this week. Yes when I think about it, it will be less stressful knowing he is with those who know what they are doing for the first few days. I am really worried about doing something wrong and causing a set back - he is just such a BOUNCY pup.

I am just taking it all one day at a time, lawyer probably this week and go from there hugging

Bianca...so sorry you are having such a rough time. With the added worry of sick dogs you are doing well just to get up every day and keeping it going.

It is along time for Coop to be there, but with another dog at home and having to keep him quiet, that little bit of extra time to start the healing process etc will be very beneficial for him and they are generally very very quiet for a few days after...and once he is there he is there.

That said though, are you taking Coop to the same place I took Kobe?. Not withstanding they are brilliant (and should I ever be unfortunate enough to have to take a dog there again, I would do so in a heartbeat), you pay for that privilege. Make sure you get a full written quote up front, including the extra time for hospitalisation, Kobe's bill for a stay for 1 day + tests ended up being approx $800 more than I thought and was originally indicated.

We will be here this week and next week and on into the future hoping for the best updates about you and Miss Moo and the Doopie.

Posting online is kind of a pitiful way to wish someone the best, but I do.

Bianca I am very happy the sirgery will be a reality in the next week or two. Cooper needs this and when he is fully recovered you will be so happy you did it.

I was worried sick about Kayos when she had her hip replacement. She was able to come home within 48 hours but was not on a Fentanyl patch either. Keeping her quiet was the most difficult part of the entire process especially after she started feeling better.

We will be thinking of you and Cooper. hugging

Oh Bianca, I hadn't yet looked at those xrays. Even to my untrained eye - ouch... You're doing a wonderful thing for your boy - he'll feel so much better! I would be sick with worry too and I know there's nothing that anyone can probably say to relieve that anxiety. Having never been through it, all I can do is offer my support... hugging Will be sending lots of healing thoughts to Coop! The thought of my Annabel possibly needing an FHO is enough to make my head spin...

As Mary Jane says, it may seem that way but know that my feelings for you are heartfelt. Through all my own problems, I always felt the support everyone gave me was true, and it helped to know that so many folks understood and cared, just as we hope all of us caring for Coop and you right now helps you.

Here's to an easy surgery and a quick and painless recovery.
