    After the month I've had? I'd sell a lung for a boring day. I'm not sure whose toes I stepped on but I think I've way overpaid whatever debt I owed to the universe lol

    I have nothing to do with that. I can feed her the right stuff, make sure she gets her meds on time (for now) and love her to pieces (forever), but the attitude and spunk is all her.

    Whenever I'm in tears over Vegas and I'm feeling sorry for myself...I think of you and all the others who have babies that are sick. It puts it into perspective..what everyone has to go thru, the love we have for these little souls. We do it because of love. It's hard to try and explain what all goes into caring for a bulldog like Abby, Bella, Vegas, Chevy...and all the others that have found their way here.
    I admire you and your strength. My heart goes out to everyone who has a special needs bulldog, it really does. This summer was horrible for me. I wasn't sure if Vegas was dying or not. I was scared. Every. Single. Day. Every day, every minute, every hour. I was picking him up off the floor, having to hand feed him because he was unable to pick food up in his mouth, babying him, cuddling him..........not knowing if the next week would be his last.

    Thank you for sharing your story and keeping us up to date. I truly think you are an amazing person. Hugs to both you and Abby.

    Prayers go out to your sweet baby!!! It is such a blessing that Abby ended up with you! You are such a strong and loving person and I give you SO much credit for all the research and the effort you put into helping her be a fighter. So many people would have thrown in the towel and become defeated but you continue to help her fight and that is so admirable. Some dog owners feel that after a certain amount of time/money have been put in, then they have reached the end of their rope and they let what's gonna happen just happen, but I personally have never been that kind of person and I love to see others who feel the same about their babies. You are truly her guardian angel!

    I feel the same way. I always feel so wonderful after reading the post when I find out that Abby has again beat the odds! She truly is a little miracle girl and her mama is the reason! *thinking good thoughts for your conference with the docs*

    How is Vegas now? I love him

    It's hard living with the knowledge that any day could be their last. But the same could be said for people right? I think all any of us can do is make the most of whatever todays we are given.

    I don't know how much longer Abby will be with us. According to her doctors, I shouldn't have her now. Any infection or virus or even stress can spike her numbers and I could lose her. When she had that GI thing back in July her BUN hit 230. She should have had seizures and all kinds of other issues. Her blood was so toxic that other organs could have (should have) started to shut down. But by some miracle she didn't.

    The sucky thing about kidney disease is that the end can come very suddenly or very slowly. Knowing that just makes each today twice as special as yesterday. My prayers each night are just for one more tomorrow and we take it from there

    Sweetie head is driving this bus. I'm just a co-pilot. My job is just to hold her in place for one more step forward

    For me, her name was Abby
