My parents picked Lilo up from Purdue yesterday afternoon and brought her home for me. She was very bright and alert when she got to the house. She looked 100 times better than when we left her. We went to Dr. K's to drop off the "snot sample" as my dad called it to be sent out for testing to see what we're dealing with.

By the time we left PetSmart, you could tell the heat and the shuttling in and out of the car were starting to get to her. Her breathing became much more labored. About half way to Anderson on I69, she had another "episode." I couldn't have pulled over faster if the entire Indiana State Police had been behind me!!! The "episode" only lasted about 30-45 seconds before she went back to panting heavily again. Thankfully, the rest of the trip to Anderson was uneventful!!!!

They got her into an incubator right away when we got there. I spoke with the after hours vet who did not impress me at all!!! He was an a$$ and did his best to make feel like the world's worst momma!! To top it off, he was the doctor that performed surgery when she ate the rock!! I'm sure he thinks I'm a real winner.

When I left, she was resting in her incubator trying her best to breath through the mud in her nose and lungs!!

This morning I spoke to Dr. Smith and he said there has been no change. She's still labored, but she's calm and there have been no more "episodes." I have asked them to do a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia as a possibility. That was the last I have heard. I am clinging tightly to "no news is good news!" I am going over tonight to see her and drop off her antibiotics.

I have been so bad about getting around to the blogs and commenting and I'm sorry! I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for their support, their posts and their prayers here, on Facebook and on twitter!! It all means so much to Lilo and I to have you all in our lives!!! Please keep the prayers coming, I am sure she feels the love surrounding her!!!

Until I have another update. . . . . .

Pugs, Hugs & Kisses

Hang in there, Jess! You are NOT a bad pug mom. We have met and I KNOW that any pug would be lucky to have you for their mom. Lilo is definitely spoiled rotten and very much loved - just the way she's supposed to be! Pug Hugs, Ellen

ps ... I put her pretty picture on my blog asking everyone to keep her in their prayers!

For starters, you're not a bad doggie mom - in fact, making sure she gets the care she needs makes you an excellent doggie mom. Fingers, toes and paws still crossed for Lilo!
