|A little collage of Sophie pics :)|
So anyways we had to leave our poor puppy there at the hospital overnight so they could run tests to see what exactly was wrong, and to make sure there wasn't a tumor somewhere. Sophie was so sick that she had become unresponsive. We had to prepare for the worst.
|"Car Rides" are her favorite!|
After 11 years, I was not ready to say goodbye to Sophie, not just our pet, but a member of our family. After hearing this heartbreaking news, I bawled my eyes out, thinking about losing her, or even how she was feeling. I prayed and cried pretty much that entire night (and tried to keep the tears away at work!) Thankfully, after some much needed fluids, Sophie was responsive! There was finally a glimmer of hope!
The next day Sophie had become even better. The doctor still can't explain what happened. All the tests came out right, no tumors, and Sophie's blood sugar had began to become normal again. Thank the Lord that when a dog gets a stroke, they can bounce back a whole lot easier than a human. They just need to remember how to walk, eat, drink, go to the bathroom, and sleep! So Sophie was able to come back home Thursday night! She was still very lethargic, but was able to wag her tail even a bit!
Over the past few days she has regained her strength and is back to her spunky self! We are still keeping a close watch on her, and still giving her medicine and food prescribed by the vet, but it truly is a miracle that Sophie is still with us!
This whole experience makes me so grateful for our little dog. I'm so glad God created us to live with His creation. It's amazing how much of an influence Sophie has on my life, and I'm not taking that for granted!!
