|I just wanted to let everyone know that Samson got bloat last night at around 10.
I rushed him to the ER as fast as I could and they rushed him to the back. While they were stabilizing him the doctor told us that it would be $6000 to do the surgery and there was a 60/40 chance for his survival. Samson has given me his all so I had to do it and pay for the surgery. He went into surgery and three hours later the doctor came out to let us know how it went.
She said the stomach had twisted so they fixed it, tacked it, flushed his stomach, and removed his spleen since many blood vessels had burst. I was able to go in to say goodnight to him and he looked pitiful but I was so happy to see him alive.
This morning I went to visit him again. He was on pain meds so he was very sleepy but his eyes lit up when I kissed him and spoke to him. He wanted so badly to come with me but I told him he needs to stay there and recover.
The doctor said he's doing very well all things considered and we'll know if he's going to make it the next few days. Please keep him in your prayers.
