    Default Surgery day

    -image-jpgToday is Macons teeth and entropion surgery. Please put her in your thoughts. I'm so scared. She should go into surgery at around 10:30. I hope this wasn't a mistake.

    It's not a mistake! You are doing the very best for Macon. Prayers sent up for the sweet girl. I know how nerve-wracking this is.

    I am in tears over this. I didn't want to leave her. I am scared she won't make it. Won't be coming home. I am so upset at myself. What if it's the wrong thing? I don't know if I should cancel or chance it. It seemed like the right thing before today.

    You are doing this for her. For her health, pray, pray, pray. My Tyson went through surgery at 8, almost 9 yrs old and pulled through like a champ. She's got this!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Roseann, I know how you feel. Putting them under anesthesia is very scary.
    But, if you don't go through with it, how will her quality of life be? Is she in constant pain because of her teeth?
    And how dangerous is the entropian If left alone, can it cause issues with her sight?

    All we can do is weigh the pros and cons then make the decision. Just so you know, I would have made the same decision you did.

    @nycbullymama She is in constant pain and they're infected. She's already half blind from the damage to her eyes. Her quality of life isn't great but she's happy with me and I'm scared and selfish. I feel like it's right, mostly.

    You did make the right choice. The worry shows you love your babies!! I cried like a two year old when both of mine went in at the same time for their neuter and brachy surgery. Was a wreck for hours.
    But we're here for ya until she's out and you're feeling better!

    I was a complete mess too, I bawled my eyes out in the lobby. They had to take me to a private room. And even though I had to wait for them to call me back for pickup, I just showed up a few hours later to wait, because I could not handle being at work. I was a mess the entire day. We know the pain, and you made the right choice for her. Hugs, we're all here for you, like Ellie said.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    I'm praying for Macon. You are doing the right thing for her. She can't go on with infected teeth. She will pull through and you will have your sweet baby home with you soon.

    I know this will work out and you've definitely done the right thing, she's not going to be in any pain after she heals up. You are a good mom Roseann. She will be so happy to see you when you go pick her up. Hugs and prayers and all good thoughts to her and you.

    Roseann, I completely understand what you are going thru… I have been there, and it's horrible.

    First of all you KNOW that you don't want her to lose her eye and she can't continue w/infected teeth. All we can do is make the best decision for our babies and after that we just pray that everything is going to be okay. We can't second guess ourselves because honestly we are left w/no choice. I have a feeling that everything will be fine, but I know that hearing that doesn't always make you feel any better. Just KNOW that we all are praying for you & you are NOT alone today

    RIP Wellie, Bella, Winston & Roxie
