    Re: Sandy Swallowed a sewing needle

    Finally got to talk to someone at the hospital. Sandy did fine. Stable throughout the whole procedure, and has actually been up on her feet since coming out of the anesthesia. She can probably come home tomorrow. They're going to check her in the morning, and make sure she can keep some food down. The Dr. was going to try and push the needle out, but there was too much string attatched so they had to cut her. Thanks to everyone for your kind words and support. I'll continue to update you guys on her condition, and we can't wait to get her home.

    Oh Thank God, I was just reading this whole thread. I am so happy to hear that little Sandy is doing all right. Do you think she learned her lesson? I doubt it. Hopefully she will recover quickly. Soft food for awhile I bet.

    OMG It had thread attached? Thread can cause huge problems. I'm glad you guys are proactive and took her to the vet sooner rather than later. I'm glad to hear she came through ok and sending good wishes for a speedy healing.

    I'm so glad to hear she did ok. That's such a scary situation, but I don't think it's that uncommon. I hope your wife isn't feeling too bad, it's not her fault at all. I felt so bad after my boys ate the brownies...the good thing is you guys were on top of it and got her to the vet.

    Kudo's to you The tenth! I'm glad Sandy is doing better, I was honestly worried...funny how that works, I don't know you nor you me, but still concerned about the welfare of your pet.

    Glad she's doing better and that the needle is out. Hopefully she can hold some food down and come home tomorrow.
    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you ever tried.

    You and Sandy are in my thoughts. I am happy to hear they were able to get the needle and string out, poor thing. Hoping for a speedy recovery!

    I posted above but hope I didn't sound accusatory. Cassie ate one of my heart pills and almost died in July last year. Accidents happen.

    Ditto here. It's strange forming connections to other people though a computer but I think it's cool at the same time. I'd never find another person here in Belize that's on the same level as I am with my dogs. DF is a great resource of knowledge and camaraderie for me.

    I just got off the phone with my wife, and she's on her way to pick Sandy up now. She's even bringing her out to my work so I can see her. It's gonna be hard not to let her get too worked up, but I can't wait to see her. Thanks again for all your concern and support.

    Oh tenth I am so happy for all of you. I hope her recovery is quick. Although a little extra sleep might not be too bad huh?
