Reaching out for prayers!

Thursday, June 26, 2014

It's me again, my friends. Sometimes y'all are the only ones I can go to and I hope you don't mind too much. It's my Bruno doggie. He's 15 ( at least) and has developed some awful thing. He can't use his legs. You can stand him up and they just fold under him. I've had him to the vet today. He did blood work, which was fine. Then he did a couple of x-rays, and they didn't show any problems. Poor dog hasn't peed all day. I tried slinging him in a towel and got him outside, but he didn't pee. Don't know if he'll be able to eat this evening! Doc said he could refer me to a specialist, but it would be cost prohibitive, esp. at his advanced age. We're starting him on prednisone today and the vet wants to see him again Mon. or Tues. My poor baby. He doesn't understand. My DS is home now and he will help me with the little guy.
I fear his days are limited, now and it scares me so much. I know he can't stay forever, but longer would be preferred.
Prayers, my friends, please! This is not just a random dog as most of you can identify with.......this is my 4-legged son.
Thank you all so, so much for reading and your understanding and your prayers. I will keep you all updated in a blog. (((HUGS)))

    I will ABSOLUTELY keep Bruno in my prayers Jayne! We went through the same thing with our beloved Sweetie who went over the Rainbow Bridge due to kidney failure. She (as is my AllyBear) is my 4 legged little girl, so I totally understand. I'm so sorry for what you are going through. My love and prayers go out to you!

    I will keep you and Bruno in my prayers. I know how difficult it is when our beloved pets start to suffer. I pray that the Dr can find something to help him and that the Lord can give you peace.

    I certainly know how you feel, Bruno is not just any dog, he's your baby. Will be saying prayers for him and praying the vet will know the best procedure for him. My heart goes out to you, please know that I'm sending you hugs and prayers.
Yes, keep us posted. emoticon

    Prayers for you and Bruno, of course. I've had a number of dogs and cats over my life (still do) and I know how hard it is when it gets to the end. My mother always told me the really bad thing about our pets is that they don't live as long as we do. She was absolutely correct! You'llknow what is right to show Bruno the final act of love and respect.

    Praying for you & Bruno. My heart aches for you . I know how I feel when 1 of my fur babies is sick.
My horse has been on more prayer list than some people. Several different congregations know her by name. She is now 30 years old, & still going strong.

God Bless you with healing, comfort, & strength, & peace as well.
