Please send a prayer this way tonight for Addy. We had to take her to the vet this afternoon because she's been having a terrible time walking on her back legs. Sometimes she limps and then just stands there while she gets up the courage to start moving again. We can tell she's in pain sometimes when she walks.
If you remember, she was diagnosed with cancer back in June 2005 and wasn't expected to survive past the end of 2005, but she's been such a trooper and is still here with us.
While the doctor was checking her out today she discovered that Addy has a really bad heart murmur and irregular heartbeat, so the pain in her legs could either be caused by this or by arthritis. Of course, she can't go on arthritis meds until she has an echocardiogram to check out her heart. We haven't scheduled an echo yet because we want to see what her blood work reveals first.
Please say a little prayer for her...she could use all the good wishes she can get!
