Monday the 20th February Christian and Susan went to our own vet Benedikte and had an ultrasound done - ultrasound showed at least 8 strong hearts - what could be better news?
The weight showed 29,5 kilos.
Today it is sunday the 19th February
and we now have 5 days till official delery date, but most likely Susan will be a litle early, but no wonder, she is so big and is now becoming a bit troubled by the weight.
Susan likes to be a litle spoiled with her food now, as she is eating alone
and her owner wants to keep blodsugar stabile
I can feel the puppies and have tryed to make alot of movie clips of it, but with out much
We will send out IP cam informations on email to all our families waiting for our puppies, and to friends that like to follow the litter.
Friday the 17th February we went to Copenhagen again to see Nina E. Diers.
It seems that
the dead puppy is in solution. Susans infection numbers are still perfectly normal, and also her temprature is normal. Ultrasound showed lots of big and strong puppies, with perfect heart rytmes
Her progesterone was IDEXX 7,5 monday it was 9,5 - so according to that she will deliver the babies in 4-5 days, so Nina recomended not to take any more actions.
We will do one final altrasound on monday
the 20th February just to make sure they are all doing fine, and don't have need for an urgent c-session.
I just can't express how happy I am that we have come this far, 6 days ago I was sure we would loose the hole litter, 4 independent vets, including
2 repro vets, recomending c-session that would make the end of all Susan and Happys babies.
Thank God for my own vet Benedikte sugesting to go to Copenhagen, for Ilona, NL and Candace, USA for believing in saving the litter, sharing their experiences
and being there for us almost 24 hours a day. So everything seems even a bit more positive today.
Susan is becoming to be rather troubled by her big and heavy stomach She is making +28 kilos now from her normal 20 kilos.
Wednesday the 15th February we went to our local emergency vet, as it is winter vecation in Denmark and our own vet is on vecation.
Ultrasound showed big and growing babies doing well, puffing and kicking around.
Also the vet commented
on the big milkbar that Susan is setting now, I was so happy to hear that.
And one new huge thing for me is that I can now feel the babies when I lay my hand on Susans belly
9 days to go - we are keeping Susan on maximum calm restrictions and will give her another vet check soon.
I am so grateful to all who have been a huge support in helping us and sharing their experiences for us to at least
be able to try to give the puppies the chance to live, we still have a long way to go, but we hope and do our best.
