Prayer Request For Abby

Abby is just a little over four months old. She is a beautiful, black, baby mini-schnauzer and has the sweetest, most loving personality you could ever imagine. She is the fur baby of Tileena and Matt.

Saturday evening, after a day of playing, she suddenly lost all motion on her right side and is now paralyzed and in very serious condition. The doctor is giving her cortisone shots in the hopes they can restore her health.
We would like to have her get a full recovery back to her happy, loving, little self, so I am asking for your prayers on her behalf and the behalf of Tileena and Matt.
I appreciate all of you so much and the prayers you have offered in the past for my family. You are some of the best "prayer partners" I have ever had.
Thank you dear friends.

Lea and her Mustangs said...

Oh my, will add that sweet puppy to my prayers. Do they know what happened?

Barbara said...

Lea- The doctor isn't sure. He has never seen it before in one of his canine patients. I think it was brought on by exercise somehow.

We are VERY WORRIED for her and she is also very dear to Tileena and Matt. Their hearts are broken.

Linda said...

What a sweet picture of her. I've been thinking about her all day--hoping and praying for a little miracle. I don't want to see Tileena and Matt's hearts broken.
