Sorry, but blogging activities have been temporarily suspended for the weekend as I play nurse maid to my dog and simply enjoy having him back in our home. Ever try to hold up the rear end of a 90+ dog while he pees? Trust me, you aren’t missing out on anything. That is the kind of thing you do out of loyalty and love. See you again on Monday!

Amazing news. Remember how yesterday I blogged about how Kane had lost deep pain sensation in one of his hind legs? Well one of Kane’s doctors called this morning and she sounded absolutely giddy. Apparently this morning they took him out to pee and not only did he pee on his own, he was also able to stand up on his own. That means he has the ability to place weight on his back legs which is a tremendous jump since yesterday when he couldn’t even feel deep pain. His progress is so significant that his doctor admitted that they were shocked by his rapid improvement in a single day’s time. I am thankfully that the Lord has heard our prayers and answered my request that he would heal Kane in such a manner that his doctors would be amazed by his progress. The sound of the doctor’s voice confirms that my (and our) prayer(s) were answered in a wonderful way. (more…)

We made our first trip to the hospital today. We discussed the issue of our payment plan, received the unfortunate news that it appeared we might not be able to get any grants to cover the surgery (keep praying about this), and we paid off part of the bill. [BTW: If you do want to help defray some of the costs of Kane’s surgery just click this sentence.]
On a more positive note we saw Kane for about an hour. We walked outside with Kane and the doctors and learned how to help him pee by squeezing on his bladder- fun times. We saw some improvement in him placing a small amount of weight on his hind legs- YEAH!
Then we went into a comfy visiting room where Sasha prayed for Kane and we hung out together for a while. Here are some of the pictures and video from our visit.
How about the cutest thing first? Here is a video of Sasha and Kane together- sorry for the no sound, our digital cam stinks.
Next, the surgery scars
I told him that he was lucky in a way since chicks dig scars. (more…)

Although most of the big ticket items of the adoption process are being paid for by L.F.S. and grants from the state, we are still facing a significant amount of costs for various and sundry things ranging from a fire inspection to medical exams. After you read through this list, I ask that you please add the prayer requests (listed at the conclusion of this post) to your prayers for the next several days. (more…)
