Kim K's little Poppy is in emergency surgery tonight. Please pray for her and her mommy Kim. It's some sort of spinal problem affecting her rear legs. Updates are on Facebook. Thank you for your prayers. xxooxxoo

Praying for little Poppy and her mommie, Kim. I've been following this on Facebook and it's so very sad. Poppy's a beautiful, precious little girl and Kim is a wonderful friend and Cocker Mom. Prayers for the surgeon and a very successful surgery and recovery for Poppy. God bless Poppy and Kim. :hp :love :hp

Thanks for posting this! Geez, our little forum family is having lots of medical issues. :sad

Prayers for Poppy. Poppy is not only a sweetheart, but a fighter; she's been through a similar surgery just a little over a year ago.

Hugs and prayers for Kim, as we all know what a stressful time this is for her.

Keep praying. Poppy came out of surgery, but seems to have a bruised spinal cord, which means bleeding. Prayers are for her spinal cord to heal and for her to walk again!

Thank you everyone for your continued prayers. Dr. feels she does have feeling in her toes though she's not moving much yet. She has blood now in her urine though, so he's put her on an antibiotic. I'm not sure if the rupture caused this or if it was just a coincidence. I will get another update tomorrow. She will be in the hospital another 2-3 days. I take my national vet tech boards on Wednesday so I really hope they release her after my test. Thank you all for your support.

Poppy is getting released out of the hospital tomorrow! We won't know though for 4 to 6 weeks though whether or not she will continue to be paralyzed. She will need lots of crate rest and steroids to heal the bruise spinal cord. I'm hoping the sling will work to help her go potty. Luckily I still have the doggie stroller from Dec 2010 when she had neck disc rupture surgery. It'll really help confine her while being able to take her with me working around the house.

Thanks again and keep the prayers coming!

I came back hoping for an update. Thanks, Kim. Prayers will continue for a complete recovery, although you will aways be on guard. I used a sling for Oliver when he had his back injury. It worked fairly well. Chip also built a ramp to go down the two stairs to our front yard so there would be no additional pressure on his spine. If the Vet hasn't already showed you, ask for a lesson on the best ways to move and lift Poppy.
