Sorry that I haven’t updated about Frank.
We went to visit him yesterday to see how he was and if we could bring him home. As you can tell from my shoes he was still bleeding.
We decided keeping at the vet’s office for at least another day would be a prudent move.
Today we were able to bring him home though there is still some bleeding. No where near the level it was.
He has been urinating better although he hasn’t quite figured out that he can’t lift his leg right now.
We are still not out of the woods. There is a possibility that he may need 2 more surgeries in order to get everything functioning normally again and there is a slight possibility that his penis will have to be amputated but I don’t even want to think about that.
There could be scaring in his urethra that would cause us to have to another surgery but that is a month or so away before we have to deal with that.
Please feel free to share these posts- we need all the moral support we can get!
Well we were supposed to bring Mr. Franklin home today after his surgery last night however after they removed the catheter he began bleeding. Sadly there could be bleeding for some time.
Right now, the doctor feels it could take a couple months for everything to heal properly and if it doesn’t, sigh, we face possibly another surgery.
The poor little boy can’t even pee out of his Mr- it has to come out of the incision area and he doesn’t have control over it. Hello puppy pads and more money (that we don’t have) spent.
We are facing rather big bills here as he will have to visit the vet every 2 weeks for quite awhile now. And of course, I’m still laid off-going on three weeks now.
Hopefully we can get things squared away.
Please feel free to share Frank’s story. He’s our boy-not a pet-he’s our family.
