Thank you, June, for the goodie, the word of encouragement and understanding, and the prayers. You don't know how much that helped me when I got it, and as I make a run through emails notices to catch up on things, it helps me again today. You are a BLESSing to me. Hugs to you. Darlene 20 days ago
Good morning! The rescue dog was one at the shelter where we volunteer. It was good that I was an RN because when she had a lg BLACK liquid stool, I knew she was in trouble..and she was lethargic, not her usual self. The owner of the shelter had surgery so she had her phone off so my co-worker had to walk to her home, and we had to get the dog ready to go to the vet about 45 min drive. In the meantime, we had to get 12 dogs we'd JUST put outside back indoors. They were NOT happy. The temp was high 80's, Vicky's BP was up (we think) due to HER symptoms-light-headed dizzy, and it was only the two of us and she'd driven. AWFUL day, stressful. Everything worked out and the dog had a bleeding ulcer so I guess I saved her life, huh? Vicky responded to cold compresses to her head and neck because that was about all I could do. I thought the heat had a lot to do with it.
Thanks for asking! How's the ambulation going? 20 days ago
