    Huge Hugs and pixie dust for you and Charlie. Losing a pet is never easy and now with two in a row having problems at age 7 I'm sure it must be double tough.

    Bit of an update, the steroid injection they gave yesterday has obviously done something and he's eating and drinking today. Had another injection today then high dose oral steroids for a week then reducing. They are sending his test results to the cardiac specialist for them to look at and hopefully they can give a better idea of whether it's the growth on his atrium causing the problems or a heart defect. From there the vet can work out the best treatment plan to keep him as well as possible for as long as possible.

    Please make sure guys that you have insurance! It seems like a lot per month but worth it when something like this happens!

    thinking of you









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Please keep us posted.

    Eating and drinking are good. Sounds like he's at least comfortable now.
