A chance at lifePublished 7:34pm Thursday, February 21, 2013
Precious received her eye drops and Jessica was given instructions on how to administer them for the next five days.
Demetrius received an acupuncture treatment and was sent home with instructions on how to use aqua therapy to get him to kick his legs and begin using those muscles. I was getting Donna and the girls all worked up as they could sense I was constantly fighting back tears of compassion.
“We’ll take one step at a time,” I told Jessica, “keep the faith and we’ll see where things go.”
At 11 a.m. the same day I met Heather and Buster at the FHS shelter. Amber (Cutie) had Buster checked in, took photos and saw that tests were done. Later that afternoon, Dana (Blue Whale) took him to Landrum vet for x-rays and boarding. “I’ll meet you in the morning Heather and we’ll see what’s up.”
The next day we learned that the ball joints in Buster’s hind legs are fused and he cannot flex them, hence Buster walks like a spider. Buster has stolen the hearts of all the staff at the vets especially Dr. Raines. Donna, the little softy, cuddles him like a child when she holds him. I’ve asked for his x-rays to be sent to the Upstate Vet Specialists and they’re anxious to see him.
These are the sort of cases my tax free funds are handling. I will have further updates, hopefully all positive, but I wish those who’ve contributed and those who promised to do so to see how their donations are spent.
You magnificent angels who’ve put their trust in me have given these precious kids of mine a new chance for life.
Thanks for listening.
