@TyTysmom I am so sorry to hear that Ty is going to have surgery. You know in your heart that it is the right thing-the only thing that you can do for him towards saving his life. If you do not give him this chance-he will become septic and not make it. I know I can say it, though it is hard for everyone to do-you just have to make up your mind that he WILL make it, and you do not have a choice-you are doing what is needed. I am sure that you have told-or given this Dr. his record from the last surgery, so that they can be prepared for a situation,if one should happen. Everyone feels so helpless when their kids(fur or skin)are dealing with something that we have no control over. You are certainly not alone, everyone on EBN is here to worry,pray for you and Ty-and give you the most support that can be given. Most of us KNOW how scared you are,we have been there,too. Not many people have ever understood over the years,how I have felt about my animals-but all who are members here do.That is why we are all here and can actually relate and support one another. We all will be praying for and with you and Ty.Please keep us posted-we will be with you.
