    I was thinking about you and Bella. I remember you saying that once Thursday comes, then she's in the clear. I guess this was a couple of weeks ago.

    You're a great parent not hesitating to get her to the vet. Our bullies are our babies and we'll do anything for them. They have a way in tugging our heartstrings.

    Will pray and send positive thoughts that she'll recuperate quickly and get back to her jolly self. Big hugs to you both!

    Update - So today went well, she seems to be feeling a bit better. She ate in the morning, but not lunch. She seems to be resting well - She does hold one of her eyes open a bit when she sleeps. and she has developed a bit of a tremor in her head. Its very slight, she could be dreaming, or maybe its the medication... Or maybe its head tremors... But like i said, its very small.

    So she is napping, and that means I get to nap! So far, so good

    So things are going well - She had a solid night of rest, she stayed on schedule for her treatments, and meds. This morning her attitude has improved, she looks good! I think she is improving. She is still sick, but headed in the right direction, so I'm thinking the treatment is working.

    I have some photos for you to see her belly, it looks like she has developed a hernia (sp?)...

    -img_1232-jpg-img_1233-jpg

    What do you think? I have a DR appointment that's 5 days away, Do yo think I need to take her in before that to be safe? IT doesn't seem to bother her, but then again shes a bulldog - who has a insane infection in her lungs... So even if it was, how could i tell!

    Thanks again for all the support, I'm hopefull we are making progress

    This photo is from this morning; playing with a toy!

    The first time she wanted to play from the time she got home; even though it was only for about 2 minutes, it was a great feeling For the both of us!~

    Bella's a total doll! I'm glad she's improving every day. I cannot help you with the hernia question but i'm sure someone here will be able to give you some feedback. I'm always playing it safe so perhaps you could give your Vet's office a call and see what they think?

    That looks like a hernia..Jake has an umbilical hernia from birth..the vet is going to repair it when he gets neutered..(tomorrow! ). I'm sure your vet will watch it closely and hopefully won't need repair until her lungs are ALL better and can handle anesthesia. Jakes has almost totally disappeared on the outside anyway! Glad she is improving..poor Bella.

    I wanted to also share these photos with you. The first photo is the Ratio-graph that was taken when she was checked in - and the other is when she left.

    - You can see the Trachea was narrowed a lot.. That's why they said she didnt have much of a chance, they also insisted that her airway was a .03 and would never be any bigger. They told me that it would be tough for her in the long run - and because of the size of her airway it would be hard to get over this infection.

    But as you can see it was inflamed and opened up by the time she left - still small, but she is a 11 week old bulldog after all.

    @sporako I was also told that Samsons trachea was much much smaller than other bulldogs. Bulldogs aren't like other breeds and Bella's trachea could very well grow as she grows, this is what I was told by my vet. The emergency vet specialist that Samson was taken too also said that he didn't think Samson would pull through his first episode of Pneumonia due to the size of his trachea and not being able to get the infection up (Samson did!) If you're concerned about a possible small trachea and it continues to cause problems, get her trachea tested at 12 months - an 11 week old puppy is not a gauge on what the dog will be when she's older. Bella sounds like she's on the right track for improvement, keep nursing her back to health and keep us all posted on her progress!
