    We just got back from visiting Frank. The vet had called earlier, around 4pm, and said he was extremely pleased with Frank's progress during the day. He still needs a bit of oxygen support, but was walking around and went outside to pee. He is also eating well and drinking well with minimal spitting up. He basically said that if everything went well overnight and tomorrow, that Frank might be able to come home Friday afternoon. The vet also encouraged us to visit him and see how comfortable we feel with Frank coming home.

    I had to teach a lab this evening but as soon as it was over, my husband and I went to see Frank around 7:30. We sat on the floor in a room and a vet tech brought in Frank. We could hear him coming down the hall as his breathing was pretty loud. He saw us and came right over and wanted to lick our faces and jump up on me, but we could tell he was very anxious and his breathing was getting labored. He seemed like he was trying to calm down but was pretty agitated. We kept petting him and telling him what a good boy he was and saying all the things we normally say to him, but after about five minutes, we called the vet tech because he wasn't calming down.

    We spoke to the night vet before leaving and she said they were trying to get him to breathe oxygen and calm down on his own. She said they will just continue to closely monitor him and try to get him calm without sedation. We are going to call before we go to bed to see if he managed to calm down on his own.

    I want to take him home but am so worried that his anxiety will cause him to relapse. I guess we will just see how he does overnight and tomorrow. It was so great to see him up and about and be able to hold him a little. I just feel so bad that he is having to deal with so much.

    Thank you all so much for your amazing words of support and encouragement. The vet did say today that for dogs to come off ventilators, especially bulldogs, is tough work and takes significant time to recover. I just so badly want my baby bear to be back to his normal self and home again.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    I forgot to add if anyone has any suggestions for decreasing his anxiety/overexcitement when seeing us. We are just so worried about him going into a breathing struggle cycle if he gets too worked up when he sees us.

    Maybe they can send him home with doggy xanex or something like that to keep him calm for a while? I'm glad you were able to see him.

    Thank you for giving such timely updates, Erin...don't know how you
    manage this and everything else. Here at my house, I've done nothing
    but check in here and pray as have several other members. Frank has
    just captured our hearts, like our own bullies, he's such a warrior! Cami
    is won out from being right beside me, consoling me. Today, as I relaxed
    a bit from your good report, she finally laid out & caught up on her beauty
    sleep

    It is tough, weaning them off and also, keeping him calm as all this has made
    him anxious (as would anyone), can they send mild sedatives home w/him?
    How wonderful if Frank comes home tomorrow afternoon, all my hopes for it.
    Hoping too, y'all are able to relax a bit & get some rest~what a ride! LOVE!!!

    RIP beloved boy.
