'Just returned from Kitzi's excellent cardiologist. . . he has progressed from moderate to severe though still just on this side of CHF. We have maybe 6 months (if we are lucky) before we hit that mark. The up-hill climb is just before us---new meds, etc. He is the sweetest little guy ever & we will walk this journey side by side. God has been gracious w/Lisi & we can pray that this will be true for him as well. We need wisdom & strength for one day at a time. Hold your babies tightly!

Hugs for you and Kitzel. {{{{{}}}}} It is so stressful going through things like this. But your wonderful care and your faith are the best that a little dog can have. We are here for your support whenever you need it, as you have supported and helped others. ❤

Oh Sandi, my heart was in my throat when I saw "Kitzel and was happy to see that you posted about his condition even though it was not promising. However, everything is in Gods hands and with your strong faith. love, and care, I know that Kitzel is getting the best care that can be provided for him. I will continue to keep Kitzel, as well as Lisi and you and Dwight in my constant prayers.

Thank you all for the kindest of words & loving prayers & hopes with & for us. I was in shock yesterday as the last visit was so positive & nothing had changed since his original diagnosis (which came up suddenly). I have known since last Dec. that something was going on but could not put my finger on it. I feel better knowing even if it isn't all good news. Now I can stop looking!
BTW--he just had blood work for his up-coming dental & it could not be more perfect---so for that we are very thankful. I am also thankful that he has such a great cardiologist (she is w/the CVCA group that others have used). She is so smart. We need to start going every 6 months now instead of once a year (our normal vet had done the 6 month check up before this). Of course we will see her too as needs arise.
So for today-- I want to keep positive, keep praying for wisdom & enjoy every special moment w/the two of them. We have been immensely blessed to love & care for these little creatures.

Sandi,

I am sorry he is going in the wrong direction. But you know from Lisi that medical predictions are often wrong. I hope K-man's new medicines help.

Thank you dear Patricia! You are SO kind. I think of you often & wonder about the little one---she must be changing by the day. Can you email me an updated photo? I am still wishing I had a g-daughter! :) Of course I love my g-sons dearly as well! Some things were just "not meant to be!"
Kitzi is slowing down by the day but then we have had severely hot weather w/no rain since May. He is such a sweetheart & does not let me out of his sight. I think he realizes that things are changing. Oh that I could just stop the clock! We are so blessed to be loved by these little ones. My love to you, dear friend!
