Life is so hard at times

As blogville knows, this year has been very challenging to say the least.  Our grandmother died suddenly last month, Dad became very sick with E. Coli and still has it, and all four of us has had bouts of diarrhea and Snoopy was hurt by a roofing contractor working next sore.

Today tops them all- WHN and Dad went to a medical appointment leaving us alone with the back door open to prevent accidents-.  All was well, or so they thought.  When they left all four of us were behaving as usual, but when the humans returned Sweetie and Anna were outside sunbathing. Or so WHN thought- in actuality Sweetie was dragging herself to the stairs as she could not stand up on her rear legs at all!  She had scraped the skin on her bottom and rear legs raw in her attempts to get inside.  WHN and Dad picked her up and got her on her bed nearest the back door.  The vet being closed for the night, WHN is taking Sweetie to the vet first thing in the Am.  Dad will help get sweetie into the car and WHN will have to get her into the travel command post at the vet office.

Sweetie is not in any pain- she scoots around on the floor while dinner was being made to our chagrin but is resting now.  WHN will again be sleeping on the couch so Sweetie can stay put and also to give her any help needed outside

Please pray for Sweetie- this is a terrible shock and came out of no where.  We have already priced drag bags and carts and will figure out how to pay for the latter.

OMGoodness! That is scary! Mom and I said prayers for poor Sweetie. We know she will do fine and are hoping this isn't a permanent condition. Maybe a bite or something....? Good luck at the vet, Sweetie.

Love and licks,
Cupcake

Our paws are crossed for your Sweetie. It seems like "when it rains it pours" is how things are going for you right now. We are sending lots of hugs to all of you too.

We are sending tons of healing purrs to Sweetie and have our paws crossed the vet can help her recover the use of her legs.
