saturday evening at the animal hospital
oh, sometimes life seems set on handing you lemons again and again - the truly not suitable for lemonade, pie or a G&T - when things are looking up, on its way to balance, health, prosperity (of sorts) and so forth.
a couple of weeks after his latest surgery malte was his old energetic, happy self. until late afternoon today - of course the things that need urgent veterinary attention happen on weekends and odd hours... - when his breathing suddenly became very shallow, gag reflex showing a lot, definitely not his usual self. so off to the animal hospital, where he seemed a bit better, but not alright.
as his small heart murmurs (noticed only this last year) has led to an enlarged heart (noticed at the ultrasound before the recent surgery) it may be issues with retaining water and difficulty for the lungs working properly. so he got to stay at the hospital, again, so they can give him proper attention and care.
feel free to send good vibes for little loaf's recovery.
we are so very tired and sad about life's lemons.
please bring on the wagging tails and good times ~
