Prayers for our boy...

As I type this, our sweet Mr. J is undergoing surgery.

This all happened so suddenly. He was fine yesterday, but this morning seemed lethargic. And then when he showed no interest whatsoever in his breakfast, we knew something was wrong.

This is a dog who LOVES eating. His eyes aren't locked on me in these photos. They are locked on a dog bone I'm holding up in order to get some good photos of him.

Our vet saw him this morning and after an x-ray they sent us to an emergency 24 hour animal clinic where an ultrasound showed possible internal bleeding and a mass on his spleen.
They first needed to stabilize him due to the internal bleeding.
They weren't sure what time they would actually start operating,
so I am sitting by the phone waiting to hear something.

 While we were at the emergency clinic, I spotted this little magazine from across the room. The dog on the cover looked like what I imagine our  sweet Mr. J looked like when he was younger, before his entire muzzle turned white. We didn't know him in the early years of his life as he came from a shelter at an older age.

I've been missing in action for most of this past month due to some medical issues of my own. It's been a trying month, that's for sure.

Hopefully I'll be writing again soon with some very good news about Mr. J!!!

I'll be praying for your sweet little pooch. You've been a good mommy to adopt him, showing him love and taking care of his needs.

And I am so sorry that you are experiencing some medical issues. I will be keeping you in my prayers too for healing. {{{hugs}}}}

Praying for both Mr J and all of you! I know how hard it is to have a pup sick and needing medical attention.

I'm sending Reiki to Mr J and you now. Reiki, if you aren't familiar with it is energy work and energy can be sent to an individual, human or animal, to receive and have tremendous results. My intent in sending Reiki is for all of you to feel peace and a sense of calm...and most importantly to help the Vets with what they have to do and for Mr J to heal up and come home!!
