    Default Bad news...Bodie started to bleed again and he has prolapsed again...

    Well, Bodie started bleeding from his penis again today...I checked him out and I'm pretty sure it's prolapsed again. Anyone who's dealt w/this also knows that once you've seen the purple mushroom on the tip of the penis, you pretty much can tell what has happened if it arises again in the future! I'm so incredibly upset...tears for hours...how to come up w/$1000 for the surgery, why he is always suffering with health issues, why we and Bodie just can't seem to catch a break?
    On a lil lighter note, I had to find a way to keep a pull-up on him so he wouldn't have blood all over himself and the house. (We don't have anything else besides a few pull-ups left from my son), so I had to use some ingenuity and genius, but I came up with some diaper suspenders!!

    Aww so sorry to read this. I don't know what this condition means but it's always hard emotionally and economically when something isn't right. He is adorable, just love his face. Great idea with the nappy holder, I've seen some keep a harness on them and use little suspenders to keep the nappy up. I hope you and him will get a break very soon

    I will Pray for this Precious Bully Bodie, Keep us all informed on how he is doing. Will your Vet let you pay so much a month for him having surgery? So you have Ins. on him? Bodie is the most Sweetest Looking Boy, How old is Bodie? I would love to hug him and give him kisses. I am sorry you and Bodie are going through this, but maybe after this surgery he will be All Well Susan Moore

    This is Lilo. She is part of the padded bum crew.

    Her mamas uses a harness and I believe mattress pad clips that clip from the harness to the pullup.

    Thanks everyone for the love, support, and prayers! They are very needed and much appreciated. Bodie IS such a sweet and good bulldog! He almost never gets in trouble or does anything he isn't supposed to, w/the exception of poopin in mamas flower beds on occasion if its raining outside!! Plus the occasional "I wanna hump something" episodes, and that gets him into trouble only because we don't want what has happened now, the prolapsed urethra, to happen! For those of u that don't know about this issue, it's not an easy thing to explain nor is there a confirmed reason for why it happens. It is almost only seen in male EB's and odds are about 1 in every 10,000. Basically, a prolapsed urethra is when a part of the lining of the penis decides it is going to come up and outside of the penis, forming a purple mushroom like shape onto the head of the penis. Theres alot of bleeding involved and i do believe it is painful, however like all bully owners probably already know, bullies have very high tolerances to pain, therefore Bodie doesn't show that he's in any pain or discomfort. It is a little tender when touched for cleaning purposes, but he doesn't jerk away or wine or cry. Thank God, cause i definitely wouldn't be able to handle that! There are theories or guesses as to why this happens, but no one really knows, which is insanely frustrating considering this is the 3rd time Bodie has prolapsed! I've only encountered 2 other bully owners, here on EBN, that have had this issue w/their bullies and based upon our conversations, Bodie's cases have been much more invasive.
    I can update that Bodie has not had any bleeding today!! I haven't looked at his penis, honestly because I'm too scared to push it out! I don't want to make it start bleeding again. Hopefully, fingers crossed, the vet will be able to see him in the morning, so I'm trying to hold off and let the vet do the pushing, pulling and looking. I've always heard the old wives tale, "when it rains, it pours" and we are a testament to that!! Not only have we been dealing with Bodies horrible skin break out lately, but now this. My poor baby just can't catch a break.
