UPDATE ON GRANDPA AND STELLA ROSE-POTP NEEDED

Grandpa had a setback the day of his surgery and has not gotten to come home yet. It seems he started bleeding in his kidneys and developed an infection along with a very high fever.  Because of his age, and history with his heart etc. we have been very worried.  He hasn't been able to eat much yet, and is getting shots to help clot his blood and for the infection in his stomach.  He cannot even have a phone in his room so we can call him.  We will let you know what they find out today after the Dr. comes in.

Stella Rose had to go back to the Vet this morning.  Her eye is swollen and has lots of blood in it from all the broken vessels.  The vet is worried that it could have more to do with an artery that dogs have in their eyes.  Her blood pressure was up again today and that is a concern.  They are doing blood work on her this morning and I will go back over on my break to check on her.  When Stella was born her soft spot didn't close like it should have and that is one of the reasons she is rather short and stubby, the Vet now wonders if it ties in with what is going on.  He is also worried about the build up of pressure in her eye and the pain.  They gave her pain med's while I was there with her.   Thank you for your comments on facebook.
