|The day after all day|
at the vet's
My entire month of April has been filled with Baxter. Why? Because he's my running buddy, my sleeping buddy, my best friend. Last month, I've taken several trips down memory lane and basked in the fact that he's finally a more permanent fixture in my life.
However, in the last few days, things have changed. Scary things that have kept me crying for hours at a time. I've been praying for that Fountain of Youth I'd talked about.
It started with a bloody snout. It got worse a few days later with another. Then on May 1st, we sat in the vet clinic and he sneezed blood on my arm.
We don't know what's wrong with him. He was sedated, he underwent blood work and xrays. The veterinarian and I were hoping he'd snorted something and that a twig would appear on the xrays.
We're being referred to a specialist so Baxter can undergo a rhinoscopy and potentially an MRI. It's going to cost us $900-$2500. I've harassed my twitter and Facebook feeds, so why not my blog? If you're interested in donating, even a single dollar would help. HERE is the link.
As for real reflections of the A to Z, I'm glad I did it. It was hard work, and incredibly challenging. Finding a way to relate each letter to my dog was sometimes grasping for straws. I didn't expect some of what came out to come out. It was a challenge to take pictures sometimes the way I wanted.
Here are some stats I found cool:
E is for Everywhere and
Y is for Youth got the most visits
|He is clearly handling this better than I am..|
I gained a few more followers (Hello there!)
I was going to try to figure out how many comments the pages got...but it turns out, that's a lot of work. Baxter and I loved all the nice and supportive things you all said, though :)
Either way, I'm glad I did the challenge. I think it helped me fall in love with Bax all over again. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything will turn out okay.
