Bladder stones and EPU
Long time no post! So much has been going on and time has been flying by! I am looking at EPU before the end of the year and poor evil dog has bladder stones again! Poor Peeky, so many surgeries for his stones. We saw the vet last night and had a few xrays which showed a big cluster of calcium oxalate crystals (stones) smack dab in his bladder. So, next Friday we will have the dreaded surgery. Poor guy, the surgery is not so nice for him. The doc cuts along his dinkie doodle and opens his bladder up to remove the stones. His bladder is put back into his little belly and his dinkie doodle gets stitched back up. Then the fun begins! When he pees after surgery he screams bloody murder...it sounds like I am slicing him up alive. Thankfully Dr T has offered up extra pain meds for him to help him through the recovery period. The other fortunate thing is that we are moving in with Marks parents so they can keep a good eye on him when we return to work on Monday. We move this weekend, sadly. This is not my ideal situation but we needed to do this to allow us to try again with India. Lots happening on the surrogacy front. The amazing couple who hooked us up with a doctor will finally return to India for BABY PICK UP!! We are so thrilled for them and their family! Two couples have been home for just over two months now and all babes are doing well (Nik and Lisa, Rhonda and Gerry). And last week a baby girl was born to Jackie and she looks amazing! All these positives keep us going! Recent announcements of positive pregnancies by Meg and Bob and others on the forum keep the energy positive as well. Our turn will come and we know this. We have one heck of a story leading up to this as most of us do.
