I post this song for my dog Brandi, who today was surgically opened up for a biopsy on her liver. Brandi’s liver enzymes for the past four months have been getting higher and higher. A year and a half ago she had a similar liver problem and after IV at a doggy hospital and antibiotics and special diet she recovered. It was a near death experience for her back then. I think I blogged about it, but that was at the J’s Café blog, which is no longer available for me to provide a link. We never did identify the cause back then, but since she recovered, we moved on, though monitoring her liver through blood tests.
This time she has not recovered from the same medication, and so we decided that we needed to do a biopsy. When they opened up her belly, the only unusual thing they noticed was that her spleen had several nodules on it, and so they removed it. I guess one can live without a spleen. Otherwise the biopsy went well. She is currently recovering. It will take a few days before we learn the results. Yes, the past couple of years have been expensive, but Brandi is a love and joy. All we can do right now is pray.
Here’s this wonderful song.
Here’s Brandi and yours truly, back in 2006 when Brandi was three. She just turned ten.
