Please send your positive thoughts, love, prayers to Hector the pit bull today, he is having surgery and to his family, Roo and Clara Yori.
“Hector is scheduled to have a bone-marrow aspiration taken sometime after 10:30 a.m. He may also have his spleen removed depending on the results of the advanced diagnostics he will undergo.
“In addition to the recent medical concerns, Hector had faced issues related to his dog-fighting past by battling babesia, an infection of the blood that is often transmitted through fighting.
“Doctors from BluePearl are concerned that Hector could have an autoimmune condition that may have been triggered by the babesia.
“Hector is such a wonderful dog with an incredible story,” said Dr. Jen Myers, medical director of BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Minnesota. “Our hope is that with the treatment he receives, he’ll make a full recovery and will continue to have a much better life than where he came from.”
Well, the word is out. Gotta leave early in the morning for my vet appointment. They tell me I don’t get to eat breakfast?!
