He is also coughing up a bunch of mucous but the vet said that is good that he is clearing his lungs and airways. They had the surgeon check his tissue and there wasn't a lot of swelling, so that is good as well.

    Things are much more positive but I am still so worried about my little guy. I can't wait to see him. I am just hoping that seeing us won't make him anxious or over excited because I just want him to heal and recover fully. I also don't want him to feel abandoned in a strange place. So many emotions and worries....

    What has really helped me through this time is everyone's thoughts and prayers and support. Thank you all so much for being there for us.
    Ok good news so far. Sounds like he's holding his own. I will check back later. Have a great visit and give him lots of kisses from his EBN family.
    My smooshy face boy!

    Have been and continuing to pray for Frank & both of you.
    I know how hard it is to not know if he'll pull thru this fight.
    What a precious boy you have and what a fighter he is! My
    money is on Frank (and Jesus).

    Sending my love & hope to you.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    He wasn't quite alert when we saw him because he was coughing up a bunch of mucous right before we came and started coughing more stressfully, so they gave him a light sedative to calm him down so he is still coughing stuff up but not as violently. He did seem to respond when we talked to him and rubbed his ears.

    I am hoping beyond anything that he does well through the night. I feel that might give him a stronger chance. I just want him to be done with coughing up all the stuff so he can breathe easier and be up and alert.

    Does anyone have experience with bulldogs coming off ventilation and sedation? I am just worried about his coughing. The vet said it is good to get rid of it, but it seems to be so hard on Frank to try and cough it up.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    I'm sorry but I've never had any coughing after any type of sedation, this could be due to the inflammation and aspiration though. He may be working the fluid out of his lungs so I agree, that is good. Kinda like when you swallow water and it goes into the wrong pipe, it's hard to recover and clear it out, it's downright awful. When they aspirate, that's what they have done is swallow it into the wrong pipe.

    Aspiration is always a serious, dangerous situation and difficult to treat.
    From my limited knowledge, Frank is doing a great job altho is still very
    ill.

    I believe in him, I believe in his parents, I believe in our member's prayers.
    Most of all, I believe in GOD's limitless Compassion, unfailing Mercy and
    faithful LOVE for all humans, animals & especially, precious bulldogs.

    From our lips to GOD's ear, we cry, "Abba, Father, Please bring Frank home."


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
