Mom finally got her permanent pacemaker today!! I know all y'all prayers and vibes have been helping. So she is now bionic just like Charlie!
We still have a huge hurdle to overcome. They will begin to try to wean her from the vent tomorrow. Since she has bad lungs due to many, many years of smoking, she has COPD(chronic obstuctive pulmonary disease). Sometimes these kinds of lungs become accustomed to the vent doing the work and it can be hard-sometimes, impossible-to get these folks off the vent. HOWEVER. With all the prayers and positive vibes and aire zens and terrier tenacities and everydoggie's concern coming her way, we are very hopeful she will come off it. When she does, it will be a matter of stabilizing, and getting into rehab.
One day at a time and we have a victory today with the pacemaker being put in. Thanks to all of you for your wonderful support. Truly, y'all really have no idea how very much each and every one of you means to me. This hasn't been a dog blog much lately, yet all of y'all still come by and leave us encouraging and loving words.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I wish I could hug each of you. Mack, I believe in miracles too. I keep praying we will be getting one.
Off to bed. Thanks and BIG HUGS. God Bless all of you.
