View Full Version : New Update on Little Olive

September 17th, 2016, 07:49 AM
Olive had her surgery yesterday afternoon and came through it fine. The surgery took two hours rather than the one hour he expected. I talked to him at supper time and Olive was resting comfortably but she was awake. They will keep her for 4-5 days at least so she can get IV antibiotics.

Dottie was a bit better yesterday. I had to run errands and I took her with me. For her to ride in the front seat by me made her super happy. She has mellowed out a little on the crying and she even accepted some roast beef and gravy for supper last night. She hasn't left my side since Olive has been gone.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and well wishes. We really have a lot of pet lovers on the forum that understand what we go through when one of our babies is sick.

Love & Hugs....Barb

So happy that Olive came through surgery ok. I am glad Dottie showed interest in eating too. Prayers for a speedy recovery.

I am glad Olive did fine with surgery. I must have missed something. I read that she would have tests to check for cancer but didn't know she was having surgery.
Poor Dottie. She needs all that attention right now.
Our furbabies mean so much to us.

So glad to hear Olive did well with her surgery. I know you're relieved. Dottie might get used to wining and dining on roast beef and gravy. :D Happy that she is eating now. Give them a hug from us......their extended forum family.

So glad to hear Olive will be on the mend now. Poor fur babies suffer so much when their pals aren't around. Glad Dottie decided roast beef was acceptable!

Happy to hear the good report! I popped in several times last night hoping for an update! I'm happy to hear Olive did well with her surgery and Dottie is doing better too. Olive should feel much better after she's all healed up. Thanks for sharing the good news.

Ooohhh... Ditto on the idea of filming Dottie when Olive comes home!!!

so glad you got to visit Olive. Poor Dottie...they get so attached to each other don't they? I have been thinking about getting another small dog so that Otis has a companion...but I'm already so tied down with pets when I want to go anywhere.

Hopefully Olive can come home soon!
