    Marlowe Update - more surgery
    Iocasta posted:
    It will be a year ago tomorrow that Marlowe was hit by a car. We have been fighting all summer to figure out why he keeps licking that amputated area and surrounding area raw. The vet took some x-rays to rule out something with the surgery before trying anti-depressants. She sent them over to the surgeon that worked on him last fall. It looks like the pins in amputated leg area and the other hip has moved. The surgeon is worried that they will keep moving and potentially puncture his colon. I hate the idea of sending back under the knife but it has to be done. The vet and surgeon penciled him in for Saturday for surgery but we will be in Scottsdale. I have to reset it for sometime next week. So it seems we are back at square one, one year later.

    Oh no. I hope surgery goes well, and he is able to fully recover.

    Poor Marlow it was probably hurting or feeling funny. If they are squeezing him in on a Sat it must be essential

    Marlowe hit the jackpot with your awesome family.

    I can't imagine how stressful this is for all of you! (((hugs))) to the humans and a gentle "scritch" for Marlowe.
