Default Prayers Needed and Answered

I'm sorry to post this on this board, but I hope that everyone, especially Jody, won't mind.

Pam and I need some prayers for our youngest Basset Hound, Bonnie. Since we think of all of you as friends we know you'll understand.

Bonnie is suffering from kidney and liver failure due to a bad reaction to an antibiotic. At this time there is no prognosis. It could go either way. Just keep her in our prayers. Pam and I appreciate your support.

Hello,

Thank you very much for your prayers for Bonnie. There is no change in her condition that we know of. It is still grave. The latest, as of 5:00 P.M. last night, her kidneys were still producing urine. We can't get an uptate until 10:00 this morning. Please keep praying. We need a miracle..

Don,
Hope all goes well with your puppy. We lost our youngest Scottie last Christmas and still can't get over it. Dogs are part of the family. Lots of people would not understand why we feel this way for a dog, but I do. I'll pray for you and for your puppy. Take Care

Don & Pam As a fellow dog person I'll definately keep Bonnie in my prayers. I've heard of some remarkable turn-a-rounds when pets were prayed for. I pray Bonnie will recover & lie a long & happy life

Latest Update---Monday Evening

Hello,

Pam and I just returned from visiting Bonnie. She is stable, but could still go either way. She looks as beautiful as ever. Because of her condition and the medications, she's not very responsive, but she did respond to our voices and looked up at us.

The medical staff that is looking after her is super. We couldn't ask for any better. Pam and I had a chance to talk extensively with the internal specialists. She still cannot give us a prognosis. There are too many things that they can't tell yet. As long as Bonnie keeps holding on, she has a good chance to recover. We still may not see any improvement for a few days.

Thank you for all your prayers. I'm sure that they are making a difference. Keep them coming.

Don & Pam

Here is
the latest as of 7:00 A.M. Thursday.

Bonnie remains in the care of the medical staff at UC Davis facility just
north of San Diego and the staff at Veterinary Specialty Hospital/CritiCare
facility that it is attached to. The UC Davis group has one of the only two
blood dialysis machines for pets on the West Coast and only one of four in
the United States. Both are fantastic facilities with wonderful staffs tat we
are getting to know quite well.

We were told Wednesday afternoon and again at about 10:00 P.M. that
Bonnie was resting well in the Veterinary Specialty Hospital. She received
her second dialysis treatment during much of the day yesterday. The nurse
who administered the treatment told us that they were able to bring
Bonnie's blood toxins down to normal by the end of the treatment. She also
said that Bonnie handled the treatment very well and got some needed
rest while being treated. The nurse also said that Bonnie licked her hand.
Because of the blood results from the second dialysis treatment Bonnie
will have a day off from the treatments today and get some rest. She is
scheduled for her third dialysis treatment on Friday. The specialists still
hope that the hemodialysis process will filter out the toxins and allow
Bonnie's kidneys to start healing themselves.

We still are facing the fact that Bonnie she could still go either way. There
are a lot of secondary problems that have been caused by the "poisoning"
that are being controlled by the Veterinary Specialty Hospital staff. There
is also a possibility that her kidney will not recover.

We are still awaiting a prognosis. It will be sometime before that is
possible.

Thank you and keep praying!!!

Don & Pam

Latest News on Bonnie

GOOD NEWS---Bonnie's numbers were near normal this morning. They decided that she didn't need the dialysis treatment today and will most likely not need any additional dialysis treatments. The UC Davis facility released her today. Bonnie has been getting stronger every day. Now they need to get her to eat. At this point that is the only hurdle left.

Thank you all for your prayers. We are sure that they made the difference in Bonnie's swift recovery. I'm sure that it will take a while for Bonnie to be back in prime condition, but from all indications that we have, it will happen. We'll keep you posted on any additional changes.

That is such good news, I'm very happy for all of you. It must be such a relief. I've lost two dogs to cancer, One at 13 & the other at only 8 years old. They become such a part of the family & still love you no matter what. Praise God. Big Jon
