another trouble

she's my girl. and she's sick
last night she had an"episode"
today the vet diagnosed (in all likelihood) heart disease
(we knew of a murmur)
but it's so much worse.
tonight, meds and i will watch her carefully
if we're lucky, they will help
she's quite advanced
but coping well
i wish i had known sooner 
i hope it's in time to help
we must wait.

ohhh!our wendy!

Velma said...

WOW! so much love.
THANK YOU.
wendy had a good night, is eating and behaving normally this morning. a good weekend is crucial, then two vet checks, before we know if the meds will work for her.

Jeana Marie said...

Oh dear! Velma, what a time you have had. I'm so sorry for the recent loss of your friends and sad I didn't get over here to say so sooner. I really hope Wendy will be ok and you too.
Hugs from us all.

Those 4 legged heartbeats that keep in step with us are so very precious. You are doing all you can to take great and tender care of her. She knows she is well loved. I hope it all turns out well.
xxoo

Oh my gosh, Velma. I have been away from my Google Reader for a week in a frenzy of preparation, and I read this. I am so sorry about your dear friend, but I am happy to read that she seems to be doing better. Border collies - there is such an expressiveness about them that you don't see in other breeds. You hurt when they hurt. I will keep you both in my thoughts.
