My heart is broken. My dog Lexie was in a lot of pain and after many vet treatments, and an MRI confirming a herniated disc, her surgeon recommended that surgery was her only option for a pain free life. She had the surgery on 9/1 at Center for Veterinary Care in Lewisville and Saturday, September 2, her condition worsened at 1145am and she died only less than 22 hours after surgery. I am so very confused how this happened. They didn't call me in the morning like I was told by her surgeon who called me at 6pm on Friday, September 1 after Lexie's surgery. The surgeon was upbeat and said that Lexie did well in surgery and is stable. She said I could visit Lexie Saturday afternoon and that Lexie would be home Tuesday at the latest.
I am in complete shock. The Surgeon and doctors at the Center for Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center in Lewisville cannot explain to me what happened in her aftercare the night after her surgery that led to her pulmonary hemorrhagin. Seeing her take her last breath was very devastating. She was an 11 year old long hair chihuahua. She was going to turn 12 this month. Her sudden death makes me feel numbed, confused, and left with a huge medical bill from the MRI and neck surgery. Lexie was an amazing dog. She always smiles for her photos. So if you would like to donate $100 or more, as a professional photographer, I will donate to you a portrait session and one digital file for you to print. Any donation small or large is greatly appreciated.
