I can’t believe it has been over a week now since this whole saga started. These last few days have been the longest 7 days of my life and the most frustrating. Being so far away has been torture and not being able to spend as much time with her has been killing me. All my babies are a huge part of my life and this is the first time one of them is gone because they are sick. I am SO SO thankful that my pups are big, strong, healthy dogs so that they can fight and survive something like this.
I hope tomorrow I get great news and I can’t wait to share it with all of you. I can’t wait to have my baby back home and I am eager to see her sweet little face again. This has been hard for me since I have never in 14 years had a sick dog and it is hard for me to have them so far away and not be involved in their recovery. She is in the best place where she could be and receiving great care and that has made the distance issue more bearable. I have called them so many times they already know who I am. I am sure they won’t miss me but I can tell she has already won them over. She is such a sweet girl and I can’t wait to see her again.
I want to take this oppportonity to thank all of you, my friends, for all the prayers, love, phone calls, emails, and continuous support. Your support through this has made it a little easier for me to deal with this. I can’t thank you enough and I feel so blessed to have such wonderful and caring people in my life, who despite the fact that we were in the middle of the Holiday season, took the time to stay in touch with me and give me love and support. I really really appreciate it and I know that your prayers helped her too. Thank you! ~ Josy
On a last note.. Pyometra (pyo) is not a genetic, hereditary or congenital condition. It is an infection that can happen to any female who is not spayed, so please here is another good reason to spay your girls. Here is a little info on Pyo: “Pyometra is an infection of the uterus in dogs and cats causing a variety of clinical and pathological signs related to genital and systemic disease. Although the disease has been recognized for decades, the true pathogenesis has still not been completely understood. It is generally recognized that progesterone and estrogen and their receptors have a role in the development of pyometra; however, the infection is triggered by bacterial involvement. The cyclical hormonal influences of the female dog allow the uterus to go through changes that will be acceptable for fertilization of an embryo. The changes that the uterus undergoes are typical for each dog. If bacteria are introduced into the uterus at a certain time during the cycle, hormonal regulation of the uterus allows the infection to start and become fulminate.”
