Getting well soon

Far Guy is worse.  He is in ICU and getting good care for respiratory distress.  We are hopeful that he will be back taking Chance for walks to get the mail soon.

He caught my cold and although he started on antibiotics and prednisone it was not enough to keep him breathing well on his own.

Since he has Alpha One Antitrypsin Deficiency and only 21% of normal lung function he needs some extra help to get over this health hurdle.

A prayer or two or three would be appreciated.

  4. Our prays are with you and Far Guy.
    I still remember how stressful it was when The Bennie
    was in ICU. All our blog friends helped me with
    prayer. It made me see how much we share and care.
    Our lives are a open book to each other every day we blog.

  17. Oh no! That happened fast! So thankful he got to the hospital and praying for him to get better than normal quickly!!! That is so very scary. Next winter you two need to consider Arizona or a tropical place. Even when you are in hibernation, those upper respiratory viruses always find you both. Seriously praying he gets better quickly.

  34. How big a problem can be brought on by a "little" cold! I hope both you and Far Guy are much better soon! Our family will lift the two of you up in prayer for a speedy recovery. Though hospitals are necessary, they don't make it easy to get a good night's sleep!
