Update on Bridgett not good, please pray for her
I just posted last week how well Bridgett was doing after fighting mammary cancer with mets to the lungs and possibly liver for over 10 months now. Yesterday out of no where she was having a real hard time breathing. The day before she was running and playing like a 2 year old. I really thought we would not make it through the night. Xrays this morning showed that her lungs are filled with fluid. You can't even see her tumors for the fluid. It was so horrible last night I prayed for God to take her if he wanted, to let her just fall asleep and leave me peacefully. The vet gave her an I.V. of 400 mg of lasix and prescribed her 80 mg. 3 times a day at home, hoping to reduce that in a couple of days. I am just broken hearted that this has happened, not that I didn't know eventually something would turn bad, but it was out of nowhere. She has had no cough, no hard time breathing, no signs that this was coming on at all. Please keep her in your prayers, she is doing a little better now that the lasix is kicking in, I just don't want her to suffer and I am not ready for her to leave me. I love her so much!!!
