|The hut I coaxed HOPE out of yesterday|
I left work early yesterday to go home and get Baylee to take him to Southtowne Vet, Dr. Gschrey. The Genius. I spotted Baylee on the side of the road one day, pretty pathetic looking sitting in front of someone's house in an open area against the concrete base, on Bay Street last summer. Of course, I stopped, got out, placed a bowl of water and some food under a bush next door. I drove past there daily and kept leaving food. Each time, Baylee would creep just a little bit closer, and I heard him breathing laboriously, and I decided to try to treat him with antibiotics in his food. So for two or three weeks, Clavamox, nothing. Then for the next two weeks, Doxycycline. Nothing. By this time, he was allowing me to pet him, and by this time also, his breathing was bad, and he had drool coming from his mouth.
But I wanted a second opinion so I brought him to Dr. G. He is so knowledgeable, he doesn't skip a beat when talking to you. He checked him every which way, and finally prescribed two meds to be taken together and he was hopeful that this would clear up his breathing issues. Azithromycin oral suspension and Cerenia tablets. We will see! Another kind person who knew of Baylee's breathing issues brought me over some Lung Gold for him to try a month ago. I mentioned this to Dr. G. and he will be looking it up to see if it would be beneficial to Baylee, as he hadn't heard of it before.
Have a great day!.
From the silence of your pain I heard my name
and on the wings of light I have come
to see the sadness in your eyes
that cry without tears
Can you see me, I am here
I will always be near you
to calm your shattered heart
and to make you smile at the memories
Do you feel me, perhaps a soft brush of fur
You ache to believe it's real
but you are afraid to hope
You brush away a strand of hair
But it was I, whispering.....
I am only here for but a moment
The silver thread gently quivers
I will leave behind my love in a dream
When you awaken, and without really knowing why
Your heart will know at last
That it is all right, for now
to say good-bye
