We really need our friends prayers right now.
Lily is currently in the ICU in an oxygen tent and
really needs your prayers.
You see, Muffin was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with heart failure. She has been coughing
on and off and had her checked out. She is on 3 different types of medicine for it and is doing well. While at her follow up appointment this morning, we were sitting in the waiting room and Lily went into respiratory distress. They took her and immediately put her in the oxygen tent. The x-rays (who they e-mailed to their specialist) revealed Lily is also in heart failure with lot's of fluid around her heart. Also saw her liver is twice the size it should be. They are starting Lily on heart med's also immediately. Lily never exhibited any warning signs like Muffin did with her coughing. Lily will also need an Echocardiogram within the next week or two. They think there may also be a problem with her pulmonary vein. Needless to say we are freaking out. Our poor girl couldn't breathe. Thank the good Lord we were at the vet's when this happened.
Lily will remain in the oxygen tent for as long as needed. We are praying the med's start helping her quickly. Our hearts are hurting so bad right now. The two of them as you know, are our much loved kids. We want many more years with these two.
And to add to all this stress.....
I was hospitalized in October with an acute diverticulitis attack.
Never had this happen before. They did a repeat C-Scan a few weeks ago
and discovered masses on my kidney and on my adrenal glands.
I will be having an MRI next Thursday.

Emergency POTP needed!!! Ohhhhh man, I wasn’t prepared for this today. Casey had his heart checkup today, and his EKG was absolutely perfect. BUT when they were handling him, they noticed a growth on his neck. It’s HUGE — I can’t believe I haven’t noticed before. It must’ve popped up quickly, since his last exam was in August.
They think it’s a thyroid tumor, which can be malignant or benign. Even benign can be a problem because it could grow to block his throat or cause thyroid problems. So we’re doing some tests now to try to figure out what’s going on. At his age and heart condition, there may not be a lot we can do. So please cross everything you can cross!!

I can't even begin to tell you how much I miss her. Our daily lives together were comfy and happy, very routine and when I called her, she came, wagging tail and looking happy. In her short illness, she ignored me completely and concentrated on her end.
As many of you know, I found her at a shelter, telling the tech I wanted a good natured female dog. She told me Stella was good natured when she came in but after living in a cage for 3 months, she just was getting sadder every day (one of those unpopular Black dogs). I took her home with me, and after she got caught up on her running, she was just the best dog I could have imagined.
One of her favorite roles was The Cranky Aunty to all the young pups who came on board (blog or FB). She let them know in no uncertain terms how and when they should be behaving.
She was buried at a friend's farm and I will always miss her.

Hey folks. Remember I told you a few months back that my big ol' heart is just so full of love that it skips beats sometimes? I've been on medicine to control it, but I had a follow-up test this week and I'm back to skipping some beats again. Now I have to take meds THREE times a day, blech. I'm getting another test in a month to see if it's working or if we need to try some different meds. I'd appreciate some POTP to make sure it works. You know I feel fine, but Mommas get worried, that's all. You may leave healing comment and good wishes here or click here to go to Casey's blog

I picked up both. Got the pill in her at about 4 and was told it would take ~24 hours to work. When we were cooking supper, at about 5pm, her Dad asked if I thought Madi would eat if she had ham mixed in her cat food. We mixed in some ham and turkey. She had to lick the cat food off to get to the deli meat.
Madi Mom here:
Madi had a good sleep last night, no tummy distress.
We are giving her small meals several times a day.
This morning she has had 2 servings of fishy goodness.
I have 3 kinds of kibble here that she likes or has liked.
She has a kibble buffet fit for a Diva.
She has sampled all of them this morning.
We will continue with the Cerenia and call her vet back
on Thursday with an update.
Thank you so very much for all your meows, barks and prayers
Madi and Mom
We are asking for your thoughts and prayers for our own dear Madi.
We're hopeful that her vet can get her through this and back to good health. In the meantime, please send POTP for Madi, her mom and dad, and for her vet to make the best decisions for the course of her treatment.
Please go to Madi's blog for more information.

Angel Sammy and Teddy's mom sent me this message below.
Knew you'd want to know - Raz and Allie's Dad, Bill is in the hospital - he and Mom Sharon were at Lowe's and he got short of breath..............they went to the E.R. and they found out he has a collapsed right lung (!) - they have inserted a tube and he's been admitted.
They sure do need our prayers. Bill started new cancer meds this week and they lost dear sweet Ellie. Sure do have a lot on their plates.

There is sacredness in tears.They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.

My beloved Snoopy somehow hurt his right front leg or shoulder Friday and Saturday we had to rush him to the vet. X-rays showed no break so he came home with Rimadyl and I could give him tramadol for pain.
Yesterday he refused to eat his breakfast but he was very active- no pain etc. Gave him his rimadyl at 4 pm and that was it- he threw up two or three hours later and had six major bouts of the runs. I was up all night keeping him clean and washing towels. He was embarrassed- he would let me know he had to go then the runs immediately started. And to top that off he was in agony- couldn't even pick him up without his screeching in pain.
He and I stayed up since 4 this morning and he finally slept for a couple of hours. Took him to the vet and blood work is being run. No idea what this is. Their blog is HERE.
