I only have a few seconds - I wanted to post this before I leave again:
I'm not sure I can type this without my hands shaking. I may not make sense. Forgive me if I don't. I think I may be in shock? I don't know what I'm in other than my emotions have taken over with a force I can't even describe.
We've just come home for a little bit. I've been at the 24 hour dog hospital. I had to rush my youngest puppy, Potter (he's a year old) there.
It's ok - you can tell me it's just a dog but I won't believe you. He's more than that, he's my baby boy. he's my family.
Would you please say a prayer for him?
All I know is I let my dogs out this afternoon (I have 4 small pups) as usual. They're inside dogs so I only leave them out for 15 maybe 20 minutes. I went back to let them in and I noticed something odd with Potter. I won't go into the details other than tel you this is bad. I knew this was not good. I thought he was dying. It looked like he'd been into something - bad. Alan and I rushed him immediately to the hospital. I just knew they were going to tell us they had to put him to sleep. The doctor described in detail what he had to do to make him better. They won't have to put him to sleep - that's the good news. The bad news is he's really REALLY bad.
My Potter will have surgery probably this evening or early in the morning. They are waiting to see how his little body will handle the anesthesia and then they'll get started on this long surgery. I will know more when they are done with the procedure. They're supposed to call me and I can immediately go up there and visit him for 20 - 30 minutes. I have to leave him overnight. I am so sad and so heartbroken over this....
Can you please pray that now he just makes it through his surgery and will be ok?
If you've read this far - thank you.
