    Stevie is at the vets first thing in the morning to have his operation

    He is having the eye taken out, his tear ducts flushed, his teeth done as he has spurs on them and he's being castrated, all at the same time

    I am so nervous about it. He was due to be castrated on Tuesday, but she took one look at his eye and said he needs it removing sooner than she thought, so re-booked me at the main branch (which i hate going to as it brings back bad memories of Oscar 2 being pts there :()

    She origionally wanted to do two seperate operations. One to castrate him and do his teeth and the other to do his eye, but after listening to his chest again, she said he probably wouldnt survive two GA's :crying:
    He has a weak heart and its touch and go as to whether he comes through or not. I am in a dilema as i really dont want to lose him under anaesthetic, yet he needs to be done.
    I am shaking and dreading it

    Aw what an awful situation :( you are doing the right thing though. If he doesnt go in for it he will proberbly be very poorly which wouldnt be nice for him :( letting him go in for this will give him a chance :eek: it will give him the chance to be able to live a healthier life :eek: if the worst happens at least you gave him the chance for a better life :eek: if you do nothing he might get very poorly and it would be mean.

    You know you are making the right decision :eek: make sure to have a big cuddle with him tonight so you are ready for tomorrow. Im sure everything will be ok, he sounds like a strong bunny :eek: sending cuddles xx

    Hey Sarah. You are doing the best by him to get it all done and all done at once is better, less GA.

    You know you dont really have any other option hun, without the op his quality of life would just get worse and worse so you are giving him a chance at a happy life, what time is his op?

    Stevie had his op yesterday morning. I went to pick him up at 4 and he was wide awake :)

    His eye is really sore. Poor baby

    I have some metcam and some antibiotics to give him and shes going to see him again on monday. The op went well. He doesnt look to be in any pain but i am keeping a close eye on him. I slept downstairs on the sofa last night so i could stay at the side of him. My room is too cold on a night for him

    I would have updated yesterday but i am not well myself :rolleyes:
