INKA ... MRI scan tuesday

Post by inkamum » 09 Oct 2011, 21:16

MASSIVE apologies for posting as an email (which some friends will have recieved) .... as will become clear I am struggleing with posting this out too many times (have made a copy for DnP) ...... but so desperately need all the help inks and I can get ...........



Hi All .... apologies for the round robin email ............................... but I think i can only bear to send this once .....

Unsure who is up to date with what ... so here is brief history

Inka went to see Peter Attenburrow at St Davids animal hospital (spinal consultant) about 6 weeks ago ... he diagnosied sacral sentosis (thats a narrow sacral canal ... all other things appeared normal) via an xray ...... and .... gave her a 4 week steroid injection which was suppose to reduce the inflammation in the spine .... however, my girl reacted to the injection (and no antidote) so we have spent a month hoping she would survive the steroid injection (plus £100 to off set what we could, ............. for what was a £20 injection ...................... not funny :( ).
inks was obviously adversely affected by the steroid and I rang StDavids hospital (within 48hrs) and was told "to go back to my own vet" ... despite the fact THEY gave the injection .... i doubt Peter Attenburrow has anything to do with this, however my confidence in the St Davids now is ZERO ....... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ... g*d forbid what they would do if something went wrong with a spinal op ................... :) ..... :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To cut a long story alot shorter .... I contacted another spinal specialist last wed ... Ian Macqueen who works out of Devises .... and he was a) horrified at St Davids reaction to the steroid problem (they should at least have offered to see her again) , b) knew Peter proffessionally and personally (and agreed to contact him direct) , c) thought the idea of going for spinal surgey with only an xray to go on, was outrageous .... and d) invited me and inks to come for an alternative consultateion and an MRI scan on tuesday

So, my lovelies ..... I am asking ALL of you (and you are a very diverse lot !!!!!!!!!!! ) to send all thoughts, prayers, energy , and love that is appripriate for your framework ....... to help inks and .... for a result on tuesday that has a solution whether surgical or otherwise.

Although I know you all in many different contexts .... the ONE thing you all know about
me, is, what my girl means to me, and right now, I totally admitt I could not bear to loose her .............. :(

Tuesday will give a far clearer idea of what we are dealing with ....................... and how to proceed .......

Please do not reply ....................................... unless you feel you want to .... what is FAR more important is that you sent the prayers / thoughts / love and energy to help inks

Thank you all

H and inks xxxxxxxxxx

Keeping Inka and you in our thoughts, sending positive vibes your way for Tuesday, the new vet sounds a huge improvement so perhaps this setback has a plus side.
