Mitzi Update

>> Thursday, March 11, 2010

Thanks to everyone who has emailed me and asked me how my baby, Mitzi was doing!  She is doing incredibly well!  Looking just like her old self - except for the bald spot.

She had the tubes in for almost a week.  She required daily flushing and hot compresses to loosen up any dried blood and scabs.








After a week, we took her back to have the tubes removed.  We then had to clean the wounds with peroxide and dig out the scabs that were forming.  For me, this was the part I hated the most because I felt that I was hurting her with the peroxide and pulling the scabs off.  I know I was hurting her.

We had one more obstacle to overcome and that was the hematoma that was forming under her chin.  There was some concern that if it didn't dissapate on it's own, she would have to have another surgery to drain the hematoma and then possibly have a little doggie chinlift. 

Funny - I can't get the cellulite removed from my thighs, but my dog may be having plastic surgery.  Where is the justice in that?

Good thing it didn't have to come to that.  Mitzi healed remarkably well and is back to her old cantankerous self!

Glad she's doing better! Our doggie recently had surgery and she's tiny, so I called her Frankenpuppy with all the stitches she had!!
