Win some, lose some

Before anyone worries about my kids, all that I’m working with are doing fine. Things just don’t always fall into place as planned.

Miley, the sweet girl that was found on the side of the road, missed her scheduled appointment with Dr. Allen at Upstate. It seems that for some reason her transportation couldn’t make it so her procedure has been rescheduled for Tuesday, May 23.  I thank all of you who have expressed concern for this sweet girl.  

In the meantime, she’s being taken home on weekends and is thriving with all the attention she receives at Landrum Vet. We’ll work on her physical problems but she is more than fine in her mental state. I pray she’ll have a long and happy life in the proper home when the time comes.

Prancer, the dog with severe heartworm that is owned by an indigent man, has had his first treatment, which I’ve taken care of. Thank the Lord he seems to be healthy enough to handle it. Our fingers are crossed for both Prancer and his owner. I was hoping to share a photo of Prancer, but that’s another plan that fell through. Perhaps I’ll be able to share one in the future.

I’ve had a pretty decent response to my last plea for funds and we seem to be keeping our heads about water, which, thank the Lord, always seems to be the case.

For the time being, I just have a sick cat owned by a disabled lady whose case is pending.

This is what I mean by riding the emotional roller coaster; I wouldn’t get off of it for the world.

God bless and thanks for listening.
