Liem Homer’s Brother

Dear Friends, I am almost in shock.  My schnauzer Liem suffered a stroke last night and he is paralized.  Why is this happening to me and my dogs.  I keep up with all of their shots, I give him a heart worm pill every month and his Frontline Flea treatment and you know I buy them the best food.  What am I doing wrong. This is killing me.
 
He had his stroke about 10:30 last night and I called the vet right away, but at the time it sounded like a seziure and he said  it would take a couple of hours for it to wear off. right after I talked to him he had two more.  After the third one he could not sit, walk or hold his head up.   Hubby and I stayed up all night and I didn’t think he would make it through the night.  He did.  The vet examined him and determine that he did have a stroke and the blood work showed That he too has cancer of the liver , just like Homer. Can you believe this?
 
Hubby and I and the Vet are going to try the medicine he gave us to see if he gets his mobility back, please say a prayer for my Liem.  I know he won’t beat the cancer, but maybe we can have him around for awhile.  I told the Vet I would not let him get to where Homer was before I say enough.  The vet said if he doesn’t have anymore seziures, strokes, maybe he will be here for a little while longer.  He is alert, but he just can’t walk or sit at this stage.  I will keep you informed of his progress.
 
Leim is 10 years old and smart as a tack.  He too can sing, dance and say MA Maw, that is what the grandkids call me and Hubby taught him to say it.This is their last year Christmas picture. Leim is on the left and my beloved  Homer is on the right.  Friends I have not gotten over loosing Homer yet and I don’t know If I can handle loosing Leim.  Why do we humans get so attached to our pets? Say a prayer for me too.

    Hi Pat…first thank you for the visit and comment.  Secondly, I am so sorry about Liem.  I know only too well what my beloved pets mean to me.  We have a shih tzu (Sadie) and a yorkie (Gabby) and I feel like they are my children.  I\’ll be saying a prayer for Liem\’s recovery.
     
    I will be back to read some more on your site, looks fantastic!

    Oh, dear girl~ I am so sorry; I know how heartbreaking it is to see your fur-baby suffering.
    I\’m glad that the silly little haiku brought some laughs- here are a couple I found for my dog-lover friends:
    Today I sniffedMany dog butts – I celebrateBy kissing your face.

    I love my master;Thus I perfume myself withThis long-rotten squirrel.
    I am your best friend,Now, always, and especiallyWhen you are eating.
    Blessings

    Oh, i\’m so sorry about your little babies!  I know how it feels to get soo attached to the little buggers, they are just like children.  I have caught myself almost calling my new puppy by the name of my dog that passed almost 2 years ago.
