    everyone, thank you for your thoughts and support. We are at a low ebb just now as not only worried about Brodie but our cat Flynn was hit by a car yesterday on Ormile Road and killed outright - thankfully he was taken to the vets almost immediately after but was DOA. From his microchip scan the vets were able to identify it as being Flynn,

    News on Brodie is that there are 3 ways it can go today

    1. His shunt is external as the scan a fortnight ago showed and he can be operated on today (being a large breed dog it is highly unusual for the shunt to be external so the scan may have shown up incorrectly)

    2. the shunt is internal which means more difficult surgery, splitting the liver to access the shunt to tie it off

    3. inoperable - he can be kept on meds/diet but timewise we are looking at 4 months - 2 years before complete liver failure.


    We are in an internet cafe in the Gyle Centre just now waiting on the hospital calling us to say which of the 3 above we are looking at. They said we should get a call around midday.

    I will try to update but if unable to will ask Skinnydog to do so for me.

    Thanks again xx

    PS, yes Cuddlepop we are in the caravan - nearly got blown away on Monday night but can happily recommend our awning maker as it withstood the gusts with ease.

    Oh Dragonfly what a hellish time you are having! So very, very sorry about Flynn.

    Hope and pray that they will be able to operate on Brodie and for a great outcome.

    Many prayers and lots of love will be heading your way! xxx

    Just wanted to say I'm thinking off you and Brodie. As someone else said, if positive thought and our good wishes could heal Brodie he would be well on his way. Stay strong, we are all rooting for you xxx

    the shunt is internal to his liver so only tests on his blood and a liver biopsy were carried out yesterday. the shunt is deep within his liver to the left hand side which is apparently better than right hand side?!?!

    We have just heard from the surgeon who says that it is operable but obviously there are greater risks of him haemoraging (sp) however there will be two surgeons carrying out the operation which will be on 2nd March if we decide to go ahead.

    The surgeon said that if it were her dog she would go ahead with it even given the risks.

    Anyone any ideas for fundraising!>!>!> answers on a postcard please!!

    Dragonfly, I'm with the surgeons and if there are two of them involved, should there be haemorraghing there is another pair of hands at the ready.
    I pray the biggest prayer in the world that March is Brodies month when he gets well. Keep hopes high and cuddle him furiously till then.

    Charity auction on the org if they would allow it?
    People donate something they no longer want or need?
