In less than 16 hours, on Monday 3/3 @ 1pm PST at MASH .... PHINEAS BEANS must go in for an additional minor surgery to remove the plate to clean and rebandage, which is very intricate maneuver and requires many hands~ They need to look to ensure there is not infection and that the incision is on it's way to full recovery!

 

~*~* This additional minor surgery was not expected but very much needed for his full recovery (estimate in the picture gallery)*~*~ 

 

PHINEAS BEANS is doing very well - The surgery was a major success! Your support has changed his life and now he can grow up💗

 

PHINEAS BEANS has what is called an external splint (chest plate) which is attached with sutures to stabilize the chest. This will help his rib cage to pull forward into a regular shape. This is much like pulling a car dent out with a suction cup!  

 

He will have to wear the chest plate for 3 months until we can take it off for good!

 

THANK YOU MEOWY MUCH🐾💜🐾💜YOUR SUPPORT IS INVALUABLE!

PHINEAS BEANS is doing really well! 

Your support has changed his life and now he can grow up💗This Sunday he must go in for an additional minor surgery to remove the plate to clean and rebandage. They need to look to ensure there is not infection and that the incision is on it's way to full recovery! 

He will have to wear the chest plate for 3 months until we can take it off for good!

We will be creating an additional fundraiser for this Sundays office visit. Not expected but very much needed. It is an additional $1000+ ...this is tricky as the threads that hold the plate will need to be held while the doctor pulls up the plate.

More to come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU MEOWY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

💗💗💗💗YOU SAVED A LIFE TODAY!!!!💗💗💗💗

PHINEAS BEANS is back and resting today. When I say resting, what I mean is he is bright eyed and raring to go BUT he must stay in a smaller cage and be limited on jumping and roughhousing - Needless to say, he going to be amazing!!!!!!!!!!

His original date of surgery was the 8th .... there was some conflict for the surgeon, so they moved us to the Sunday the 18th.

He will go back in two weeks to get new dressing and chest plate. This is a micro surgery as they need to put him under for a short period of time. We are waiting to get the estimate. 

The surgery is a rare chest surgery but is very effective on giving back the kitten a new lease on life. Pectus excavatum is an unusual deformity of the breast bone, which results in compression of the heart and lungs. The exact cause of pectus excavatum in kittens is still unknown.

💗THANK YOU MEOWY MUCH💗
