I Need Prayers for My Sweet Puppy Reba

I need the guardian angels (Dawn thank you for the above image) to look over her & all you prayer warriors to send your prayers for her recovery. On New Years Eve I had to put my sweet fur baby Reba back into the hospital. She has been fighting pancreatitis for over a week now. She had come home on Christmas Eve after being there for 24 hours. She was better but, took a turn for the worse on Tuesday. She will be turning 13 years old on January 29th & it is hard for an old girl to bounce back quickly.
Here she is a few weeks ago before this hit her. Laying on her favorite rug by the chaise lounge in our bedroom. Lisa from Puppy Love is a veterinary assistant & she says that if it is not too progressed she SHOULD make a full recovery. Yet Nan from Retired in Alaska lost her sweet baby to this. So, until Monday when we get new blood work she stays at the hospital on IV's & I walk around with a sick feeling in my stomach & missing my sweet puppy girl. Isn't it funny how these sweet fur babies are such blessings to us? How they can be like a part of own hearts. PLEASE SEND YOUR PRAYERS for Reba's recovery. This is not a happy way to start a New Year.

Oh Charlene I will be sure and add sweet Reba to my prayers. That is a terrible way to start the new year and yes it is hard on us when they are so sick and away from us. I am truly sorry and I prayer she is home with you really soon.
Take care of yourself and try not to worry yourself sick
Easy for me to say but I care about you too

Sending lots of prayers and love for Reba!

Nan said...

Well I had hoped she had improved by now. These old girls have such a hard time with this. The thing is if she should pass on her own it's actually a bit easier than you having to make the decision for her if and when that time came of course. She may not be ready to go yet and snap out of this they can surprise you so don't give up hope yet. Prayers being said.

Charlene,

I am saying a special prayer tonight for Miss Reba. I hope she will be home with you soon and that she has a full and speedy recovery. I have two shelties, and my little girl Tess was sick over Christmas...in ICU. I was worried it was pancreatitis but test were inconclusive. It took her about a week to bounce back but she is better now. I know what a bad feeling it is inside to have them away from you. They sure are our little angels, aren't they? Best wishes to you and sweet Reba.

Charlene:
My sweet Kes has had pancreatitis for the past 9 years. She's 12 years old, and we're very careful to manage her diet to avoid problems. She takes a pill 1/2 hour prior to meals (sucralfate) to coat her tummy before eating, and then she receives another pill (pancreazyme) with her meal. She eats Science Diet RD (and NOTHING else) - two cups, twice daily - and it is well managed. The important thing is that she cannot have anything except her pills and this diet. Anything else can cause a painful flareup - and its attendant little labrador gas. YUK!

I'll say a prayer that your Reba takes well to her hospital care, and that you are able to medicate and manage her diet so that she lives many more happy and healthy years. In the meantime, I hope she's not too uncomfortable, or that she doesn't scare you too much with her current condition.

Hugs,
Donna
