View Full Version : Please pray for Baby

05-15-2003, 02:29 PM
We need some prayers tonight. I took Baby in to get spayed today and when he had her opened up, she started to bleed. They have her on cow plasma right now and she is wrapped. This is the first time we have not been able to take one of ours home after getting fixed. I'm kind of scared right now. I am supposed to call before I leave school and get an update and then he's supposed to call me around 6:30 or 7 with a final update for the night. If he thinks she needs 24 hour care then I am going to go pick her up and take her to the emergency vet.

Oh NO!!!!

You guys are in my prayers. *HUGS*

Dearest Baby, please get better for your mommy and daddy.

Sorry to hear that her procedure didn't go so well.:( Cisco will keep his paws crossed and I my fingers that everything will work out for the best. Prayers already on the way!!! ;)

05-15-2003, 06:36 PM
oh Mugsy - I don't normally make it over this way, but I saw your comment in the dog house so I figured you posted something here.

Get well soon Baby.

05-15-2003, 06:36 PM
Thanks guys...Doc just called and said she is doing much better. He is going back in to check on her in a couple of hours and I think Deb is going in about 8:30 to look in on her. I guess we almost lost her. Doc worked on her for 2 1/2 hours to stablize her. Deb said she bawled after it all happened. I love our vet...he's wonderful. I guess we can pick her up anytime after 7am tomorrow if all goes well tonight. Thanks for the prayers.

05-15-2003, 06:41 PM
Continued prayers and good thoughts for Baby. Great to hear that she is stabilized. Stay strong, Molly!!!

05-15-2003, 06:59 PM

How scary, did the vet say why she might have bled like
that? I am glad Baby is doing better.
I will be thinking of you both tonight.


05-15-2003, 07:29 PM

I'm so sorry that Baby had such a hard time with the surgery.
We all usually thing of a spaying as such a routine kind of thing,
but I guess there's always a risk. Hope she heals fast & doesn't
have any more problems. How scary for you. Liz.

05-15-2003, 07:33 PM
Oh no, Molly!:( I will be praying for precious Baby and keeping you and Mike in my thoughts. We'll be anxiously awaiting an update; a positive one.

05-15-2003, 07:35 PM
Prayers on the way. Please keep us updated.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Baby. Give her lots of hugs and kisses for us:)

05-15-2003, 08:14 PM
Well, no news is good news. Doc said he would call if something happened for the negative when he got back to check on her at 7:30 and it's almost 8:30 and no news....I'm hopeful. Thanks for the prayers and Cinder and Smoke, your prayers are always answered...thanks.

05-15-2003, 08:38 PM
It's 8:40 and Deb just called and said that Baby is standing up and wagging her tail. Her gums are pinker now so everything is moving in the right direction!! Thanks!!!

I know that I have not posted in a long time. Some may know why some may not. I have been worried sick about baby and to see all the post have made me hopeful of tomorrow. Thank you.

05-16-2003, 05:39 AM
It is so good to hear that Baby is out of the woods, standing up and wagging her tail sounds so heartening!:) What a great vet you have, love sent to him for caring so much.
Sending prayers and positive thoughts for her to be even better this morning and back home with you. I am sure that she will soon be back to full health once she is surrounded by all the love and care you guys give.

Hugs for all!


05-16-2003, 06:24 AM
I'm glad to hear that she's feeling better. That must have been so scary for you both.
Give her a kiss for me when you see her:D

05-16-2003, 06:37 AM
I'm so glad I didn't see this earlier...I would have worried all night for all of you, and hopefully things will be better today. Having a wonderful vet is a blessing. I know everything that can be done will be. You and Mike are often in my thoughts and especially so today.

05-16-2003, 07:49 AM
Alright Baby!! You just keep on wagging that tail girl!!:D It sounds as if our prayers are being answered. I'm so glad to hear Baby is feeling better. I hope she comes home soon,:)

05-16-2003, 08:21 AM
I have had several problems occur during the recovery period of spaying, but never anything like this. What an awful scare that must have been for you. We will keep Baby in our prayers as she continues to recover and thrive.

05-16-2003, 08:48 AM
I hope by now she is home, Molly and Mike. I am so glad that as of the last report, things were looking up!! :)

05-16-2003, 09:04 AM
*breaths a huge sigh of relief*

SOOO happy that Baby is doing better. :)


05-16-2003, 09:58 AM
Mike has Baby. I just talked to him. We are supposed to keep her down for 3 days (like crated) and she is on antibiotics. We are also supposed to keep the neon pink dressing on for 3 days. This ought to be interesting. He wants her kept quiet so no playing in the yard for a couple of days. He just doesn't want whatever tore loose yesterday to tear loose again. We'll keep you updated and thank you all again for your prayers and good thoughts.

05-16-2003, 10:00 AM
GREAT news, Molly!!:D So happy to hear Baby is wagging that little tail! Hopefully soon she'll be back home in the loving arms of her Mommy and Daddy!:)

Molly, Mike you are so wonderful for us all. What an inspiration you both are.

05-16-2003, 12:26 PM
But I am glad she is doing much better. Keep us posted.
(I missed getting on the puter yesterday) Just wanted you to know that we will put her in our thoughts and prayers anyways. :)

05-16-2003, 12:39 PM
Oh Molly! What a scare!! I am so glad to hear that she is doing better. Keeping her quiet for 3 days and the dressing on too! What a challenge!!

Hugs to you and Baby!

05-16-2003, 02:33 PM
I'm so glad to hear that everything is looking up. I cannot imagine how worried you must have been--poor Baby!!
I hope she can stay calm and heal properly, that should be a chore--I have trouble keeping one of mine calm with 2 others around--I cannot imagine 19:eek:

Feel Better Soon Baby!!!!!!!:)

05-16-2003, 04:04 PM
I'm so glad to hear that Baby is doing well. After that maybe she'll want to just rest for a while and not be too rambunctous (sp). :D Keep us posted! Was it an artery or something that got nicked?

05-16-2003, 04:31 PM
He's not sure what exactly broke loose. He thinks it was something about an ovarian stem??? or something like that. He said something about putting a stitch in and it possibly breaking loose, but I didn't understand it very well. I was concentrating on her. She is definitely a lot more subdued than usual.

05-16-2003, 04:41 PM
Well, whatever happened I'm just glad to hear she's ok. :D

05-16-2003, 04:55 PM
Goodness, Molly, Mike and Baby! What a time!!! I sure hope things continue in the way they are going. Here is to a speedy recovery, and lots of babying for Baby!

05-16-2003, 11:09 PM
I just read about poor Baby now!!! Glad to hear you are doing better. Molly, you must have been so scared!!! I'll keep Baby in my prayers for a quick recovery.

05-17-2003, 09:55 AM
Great to hear Baby is bac~! Bet she is happy too...must have scared her just as much as yall. Hope she gets better real fast~! Get Well Soon Baby~!!!:) :D :cool:

05-17-2003, 07:42 PM
How's Baby doing today? Hope all is going well.

05-17-2003, 09:06 PM
How scarey for you, i do hope Baby is recovering well now, and is back to normal real soon.

05-17-2003, 11:47 PM
I am glad that baby is better. Paws are crossed at our house for a quick recovery.

05-18-2003, 05:44 AM
She seems to slowly be regaining some energy. Mike cut off the bandages last night and now she wants to lick the incision incessantly. I'm just glad she's ok at this point. Our 3 days of keeping quiet ends today, which is good!!:) Thanks again all of you for your concern and your prayers.

05-18-2003, 09:11 AM
Glad to hear Baby is doing better. I can't imagine trying to keep one dog quite with 19 others! It was probally driving her crazy not to get to instigate stuff :)

05-18-2003, 09:31 AM
I just saw this thread... sorry I missed it , but I am so GLAD that baby is better!

05-19-2003, 10:22 PM
Glad that Baby is recovering. How's she doing? Prayers continuing.

05-20-2003, 05:03 PM
She's almost back. She's not eating all that well, so I am going to call Dr. B and see what he thinks. She is back to terrorizing the other dogs, so she must be feeling better!! lol:D

05-20-2003, 08:21 PM
Terrorizing her friends is a good sign!! Now I hope she starts to eat better for you!

05-20-2003, 09:03 PM
I am SO relieved to hear that your sweet Baby girl is doing much better! How scary that must have been for you and Mike! Keep us posted!:) ;)
