Sunday afternoon, we were surprised to find that our dog, Lusy, was very ill. She was have spasms in her abdominal area and couldn't walk. Rob carried her in his arms and we brought her to MedVet's emergency room. They took an x-ray and found that her intestines were looped tightly, and although they couldn't tell exactly what was going on, it didn't look good. We opted for immediate surgery, the doctor there called us after, it was 11pm on Sunday...and told us that they'd found she had peritonitis, an inflammation of the abdominal cavity wall, due to a rupture in her uterus, which they had to take out. They took a swab (and sent it to the lab, we will find the results in a few more days) and lavaged her insides, put in a drain, and stapled her up.
Life is not for the faint of heart, and yet... - It's been 18 days. My Husband and I are weary and fighting faintheartedness. But yet in Christ we have hope. Lord have mercy on us all.
