Today is not a good day. I was awakened at 4:30am by my sweet little dog Cleo, who was having what we thought at the time was a seizure. I took her to the vet this morning and they found that she is in congestive heart failure and she has fluid build-up in her lungs making it hard to breathe. The seizure we thought she had was actually kind of a mini heart attack. They are treating her right now with Lasix to try and reduce the fluid in her body and we are scheduled for an EKG on Tuesday. The main thing we're worried about is the episode she had last night. If she continues to have them, they will eventually stop her heart. I'm very, very sad and we are really unsure as to what's going to happen from here. We're going to just stay with her until we talk to the vet again. She's kinda old, 13, but she's been with me through everything, and I mean EVERYTHING and the notion of losing her right now is a lot to deal with so I'm kind of a wreck, which will be great for my portfolio thingy tomorrow.

Hey! I called to ask about Bird and to let you know I'm thinking about her. Kisses to the puppy - *MWAH*

Get better, Bird!

How was your portfolio party? I'm dying to know how it went!

I trust that Cleo will be fine! Dogs have a mysterious way of healing when surrounded with positive energy from their owners.

I anticipate a blog on the portfolio review soon.
