today we had the doggies at the vet for a routine check up and some shots. the vet came in to tell us - the murmur is worse.
vet said today that the murmur is now a 5/6 and her blood pressure has increased. this saddens us so. we know she won't live forever, but we'd certainly like her too. she is the sweetest, most affectionate, caring, playful, and loving dog i could have ever dreamt of.
the vet prescribed a medication for her to take twice daily. the vet said she will hopefully do well with the medication and this will slow the progression of the heart disease. we go back a week from monday for a follow up.
this afternoon, after we got home from the vet amelia - meal as she is known around the house - sat in her favorite spot. meal's favorite spot is anywhere there is a ray of sunshine. i went to get the camera and snapped a few photos of her as the sun shone on her chest. just a reminder that GOD knows her troubles and is watching over her.
love you meal.
