Dear friends, with much regret I am not doing a Seashell Saturday post this week, and maybe nothing on Sunday either. I just cannot concentrate on it right now. You see, our sweet nearly 8 year old Boxer, Bree, is very very sick.
kidney beanin' Bree. (The link goes to Youtube showing another kidney beanin' boxer.)
Friday morning I took her to the vet, and after a day of blood work, x-rays, and barium contrast, they said we needed to take her to a specialist. Right now she is at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine getting the best care available in North Central Florida. She is having kidney issues, possibly kidney disease, and they haven't figured out why...yet. Had she not seen the vet Friday morning, she wouldn't be alive now.
I have put everything else on hold until our baby is better. She is the sweetest Boxer girl ever, and is super polite, loving, and one of our very best friends.
I will be going back to UF Saturday to visit her. She has made some progress with being on IV, and receiving fluids, as she was very dehydrated. She is able to stand up and walk, which is a far cry better than she was this morning...she had to be carried into the vets office.
We have her first born son, Zach, and he is beside himself with grief, longing for her to return home. I'm hoping to relieve his anxiety by bringing her home in a few days.
I'm trying to figure out what blogger has done to my font, also! When I signed in to do my post, my pretty cursive writing was gone. If you are reading this in a plain print...I didn't fix it! Oh, well.
I will keep you updated as to how my baby is doing. And she really is just like one of our kids!!! Right now I can't think of anything but Miss Bree, but I didn't want to leave you all hanging and thinking I forgot about you.
Take care, and I'll be back!
