An Entirely Different Situation

You may remember I told you not too long ago that our dog was going to have puppies. Well, there are none and there never will be. After waiting for another three and a half to four weeks, in which her tummy was expanding exponentially and we expected she would have her litter anytime, her stomach started shrinking some.

We all were rather surprised, especially since no puppies could be found anywhere and she didn't even seem to have had any. I had a great suspicion something was wrong, but we decided to wait just a few days longer.

It was in vain and we took her up to the vet, who initially thought her babies were dead and had to be removed through surgery. No, we didn't have an ultra-sound done, but trusted the vet's expertise. He called us that same night and informed us that after going in he was confronted with an entirely different situation.

She had ovary cancer and one of her ovaries had developed a tumor as big as a soccer ball. He was able to remove it and hoped he had got all of it, but it was too early to tell. He kept her during the weekend to ensure she would stay confined and wouldn't tear her stitches and constantly informed us of her condition; she was doing extremely well.

She came home last Monday and is still on all kinds of medications. Poor thing, I can only imagine how much she must have suffered. I never had any doubt whatsoever that she wouldn't make it or end up with complications. On the contrary; I had every faith she would and will be fine.

She is doing well and we pray that will continue. She is considered part of the family, you know. :-)

Psalm 33:21
For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name.

She seems to be doing fine. We can tell she is feeling much better; she started playing again and is peppier then she has been in months. We hope God will continue to bless her with a quick and full recovery!


God's Grace.
