My Heart is Breaking...

Chrissy is not doing well at all. She is far from being weaned off of the IV drugs she is on to control the seizures and yet she is still constantly ticking and twitching on her left side. The vet just verified that she is blind. She will eat small amounts of food out of the bowl, but only smells her way to it. She has damage to the right side of her brain causing all kinds of problems manifesting on the left side of her body.

I feel inconsolable...like God has turned His face from me...

I am so sorry to hear this, I have heard of several animals having this reaction and not recovering. I spoke with my vet a few years ago, and my Border Terrier was having a couple of sizures...we could not find the connection. We did take him off his flea & heartworm meds...he now takes a few drops of garlic 3-4 times a week on one feeding time morning or night. This "cleans" the blodd seems to repel the fleas havent sdeen any and is a natural way to filter anything inhis bloodstream It is human grade Kyolic aged garlic extract.
Again, I am so sorry to hear this...

Oh, Julie, my heart is breaking for you. You have so much on your plate right now. God gives us all these emotions and we try our very best to deal with them in a Christian manner. I wish there was some way I could help take away some of your pain. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh Julie, that is very sad to hear. Poor Chrissy, has to be scared wondering what is going on with her.
I was thinking about all of you last night and all that you have been through lately. It's almost too much to bear.

Dearest Julie I was so hoping for more encouraging news. The extraordinary measures you, your husband and your vet are putting forth make the events even more disappointing. Today is the third birthday for the last litter of schnauzers I had the previledge of breeding. I usually call or write to each owner to wish them and their furkids the happiest of birthdays. In the message this year I will share your experience. Those of us who's calling it is to care for our four legged friends are standing behind you with loving arms.

Oh sweet friend, my heart is hurting for you and with you! I've been out of town since early Monday morning and this is the first time I've been able to do some blog reading. When I saw this post, I went back and read what's been happening. I'm so sorry...and so sad. I can not imagine how painful and sad this is for you and Don. Loving our Miss Daisy as much as we do, I live in fear of something like this happening. I pray the vet finds a solution.

Hugs!
Kat

So very, very sorry. So terribly sad.

Julie, from my own experience in life, when I am confronted with such unimaginable pain, what works for me is whenever I start thinking about it, I just tell myself no and try not to think about it then. I can think about it later when I've had some time. I know it sounds simplistic, but it works for me.

I am just so sad. My little heart is hurting with yours... Hugs and more hugs from those of us who love you, love our pets, and love all of God's creatures. Be assured God is never turning his head from you but will hold you in the palm of his hand and stitch your broken heart with his Rapha Healing stitches. I know because my heart is a tapestry of his handwork... Love you...

Julie,

You are still in my thoughts and prayers and hoping that Chrissy will pull through. Stay strong. I know that is hard, but I am sure Chrissy needs you to stay strong for her. Keep us posted.

Big hugs for you,
Linnea

Praying for you and Don and Chrissy. God loves you, Julie. He knows exactly how you feel. And being owned by a doggie myself, I think I know too. Hugs to the three of you.
