    Default Winston's surgery is scheduled for Wed...

    Just got back from another eye checkup for Winston…

    His bottom lids keep rolling inward, and are causing irritation which then leads to another eye ulcer. His doctor wants to do the surgery on Wed the 18th, because she will be unable to do it until after the holidays in Jan. My hubby doesn't get home till the 20th, but he told me to go ahead and schedule it.

    I was asking a MILLION questions, and finally she asked me if I was worried about the surgery… I told her that NO I was worried about the anesthesia. She told me that they do bullies all the time, but she said that if for ANY reason she was concerned about his breathing while he was under she would STOP the surgery all together. She listened to his heart and told me that she didn't find any heart murmurs, then I told her about my concerns regarding megaesopahgus. She told me that she seriously doubt he has that because he seems to be very healthy looking bulldog. She told me to have a chest x-ray done at the vets to calm any fears I have about his esophagus. I explained to her what has happened to us this year I really couldn't handle any more drama...

    I can't let him suffer serious eye damage because I'm nervous about him having surgery… that would be very selfish of me. Dear GOD I can't wait for this year to be OVER!!!

    Hun you need to think positive ! I know is very scary putting them under my vet said to me that they treat bullies like humans while they are under-it doesn't make much sense to me but i believe it might be slightly different way
    Lily so far been 3 times under (she might go once more if those bloody stitches wont dissolve!)
    Your baby got checked and that is very important so please try not to worry sick(that is coming from a person who's worried all the time) xx he needs this operation hun and he will be ok xxx sending you big hugs hun xxxxxxx

    Rest In Peace Winston xxx

    I understand how nervous you are and nothing is going to make you feel better until your baby is home safe and sound with you. I know he will be ok. Brutus and I are sending hugs and prayers. Where the Heck is @Texas Carol ? there is so much going on here and we need her to calm us all down. I'm going to find her!!

    Right proud of you, Jim...EXACTLY what I would say...and TRUE.

    Tracey, Honey...Winston needs this surgery, it is really not a vanity surgery, y'all
    can't continue living this way. Your Vet being able to get him in to do this, so soon
    and before Christmas, is GOD working on his (and your behalf). It's difficult but
    let go and let GOD...hard but yet, simple...just do it! GOD has your back, Tracey,
    HE has plans for you (and yours) plans to prosper you and NOT to harm you.

    "GOD hath dealt to every man the measure of faith." Romans 12:3

    So there you go, Honey...your faith (in all circumstances) is already in you,
    placed there by the Holy Spirit. Call it forth and rest in GOD's peace that
    passes all understanding, HE will not fail you.

    EBN is praying with you and for you and Winston. Sending you strength,
    courage & faith and continuing to pray for all~Carol
