the lasix moved enough fluid out of the lungs to get a good view of her chest. she has a very large and advanced medialstinal tumour between the lungs and the heart. bridgette is now palliative care. her new wheelchair arrived today so she had about half an hour of toodling around while nicole got it all adjusted properly. she did pretty good for her first time in it but was tired because today was a very long day for her.

we will continue with the lasix for now, added steriods to slow down the tumour growth and reduce inflammation. the vet gave me a prn anticholenergic for any midnight respiratory crises and pain meds to cover any discomfort she might have. we will watch her carefully for when she is ready to go and help her when she asks.

serena and babes are back from the vet and none too impressed with humans right now.

ronnie and mother theresa both had an antibiotic injection today, hopefully they will both feel good again for awhile.

it has been a very tough end of the year, have a toast for us tonight wishing 2009 will be better for all.

a happy and safe new years to everyone.

    Wishing you all a year filled with peace, happiness and good health. All the best in 2009 from my home to all of yours!!! I can’t wait for the snow to melt so I can come back for a visit, maybe a working weekend where I can hang out and pick up poop?

    The people you love, the places you’re a part of, the memories you hold onto, and those unforgettable moments when you close your eyes and breathe in life with a smile. A new year is a reminder to celebrate all the things that are good in your world.

    Happy New Year to the SAINTS, four and two legged. May 2009 be kind to the Sanctuary and all those who enter its gates.

    All the best hopes and wishes to all of you who make S.A.I.N.T.S. the wondrous haven it is.

    Cheers!

  • Happy New Year to all and to all a good night. To everyone I know in the States and Canada and all the wonderful animals on the planet. Those deceased are in my thoughts as well. I believe 2009 is going to be a great year and we will all prosper, whether it be financially or in caring for one another. Take care and God Bless all the wonderful people involved in Saints. Eva
