Norris is supposed to have surgery tomorrow. He really needs vibes!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Many of ya'll have been following the story of Norris, my sweet foster dog. He was hit by a over a week ago and his leg is in shambles. When x-rayed there was a visible break at the hip bone on down to his foot. There are shattered fragments of bone in his leg as well. Since the vets office (please refer to this thread http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=128684) did not do his surgery when they should have- the leg might be in worse shape. At this point- the options are orthapedic surgery or amputation. I am not sure which he will have done tomorrow. Please keep sweet Norris in your prayers tonight. He is such a sweet fella. He didn't deserve any of this There are pictures of Norris in the Pet Pics section if anyone wants to see the break in the leg or what he looks like. (he's handsome)

thankyou hon! i think i'm more nervous than he is as he doesn't know what's going on. i know he will be ok whatever the outcome...i just hate that he has to go through this- all because someone was an irresponsible owner!

Mega {{{vibes}}} for surgery tomorrow!

I seriously hope they can save his leg, but if because the ortho didn't do surgery he looses it, can anything be done to the ortho place???

Good luck to Norris. I am glad he is finally having surgery. Either way he will be on the road to recovery and eventually being painfree.

some people only see $$$ signs. that's what's wrong he is such a sweet pup too. i'm going to take such good care of him when he gets home from his surgery. poor little fella. i think he's already getting spoiled rotten too lol. everytime he barks at me- (and he's figured this out) i give him attention and treats (he deserves it) and actually, as much as it would be bad if they amputate his leg- it might not be as bad as we think- he's already adjusted to walking like a tripod, and it would save him from having to undergo surgery after surgery to repair the leg...as well as hip dysplasia/arthritious that might develop in that area. BUT if they can safe the leg - that would be great.

I hope the operation goes well for sweet Norris. I was so sad and angered when i read about the delays for help. Hopefully everything will be good and he will get to keep his leg. Those pictures show he is a very happy and beautiful pup.

Thankyou again everyone for keeping norris in your prayers. i appreciate it soo much!!! i posted in the other thread a moment ago, so i'm just going to copy/paste what i posted there in here for ya'll to read since it's the same thing pretty much


"Thankyou again everyone for the vibes for Norris today. I took him in at 7am. They said he was supposed to have his surgery today between 11am-3pm just depending on the schedule. He will have to stay overnight, so i will pick him up after i get off work at the shelter tomorrow. Also- the vet (a different one in the practice- apparently my bosses called this morning and raised all you know what and demanded a different vet) said that he thinks he can repair the leg without having to amputate it so that's great!! He's not 100% sure but he thinks he can fix it That's the best news i've heard all week! So keep your fingers crossed this vet can fix it alright. (there are a lot of vets in that practice- 2 of which i really like......the others i don't care for or have never delt with- the new vet is one of them but he seems to be good so we'll see.) my bosses let them all know that what they did was unacceptable. so i guess we'll see what happens as far as switching clinics go. Right now though i'm just hoping all goes well with Norris and he isn't in too much pain when he wakes up. I signed a thing for him to get extra pain meds if he needs them so i hope that helps."
