semi-update on Purcy
- Hi everyone,
Well, Purcy's cardiologist can't see him until the end of Sept.
Purcy is thrilled, of course, but I'm nervous about not knowing how
he's doing for so long. This was supposed to be a 6-month ultrasound
check, but now it'll be a 7 month check.
He looks like he's doing fine, but his breathing gets labored if I
give in to his demands and let him go outside (only when I'm around
to check on him), so he really doesn't go outside much. He did this
last summer, too, so I think it's just the bad air quality that
Just wanted to share what's going on with Purcy, and so you don't
think that we dropped off the face of the earth :) Please keep him
in your prayers for me. I hope that your furbabies are doing all
right, and I'm praying that Sasquatch gets better.
Heather & Purcy in Mass.
