It is with a heavy heart that I write my diary today. Yesterday I lost a very good friend. You may have remembered that I had asked for prayers last year for Aunt Carla's Greyhound, GT. He had a raging infection in his abdominal cavity and had to have major surgery. He pulled through and was doing well until about a month ago. He started to have problems breathing and was coughing up blood. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and was put on antibiotics. He seemed to be doing better until Saturday night. Aunt Carla came home to find him in respiratory distress. She rushed him to Tufts Veterinary Hospital at 3 in the morning! The doctors put him in an oxygen tent but he still couldn't breath! They made the decision to put him on a ventilator so the machine could breath for him. Aunt Carla called my mom and mom and dad rushed down to Tufts yesterday afternoon. GT was sedated and in ICU. GT's doctor was still hopeful. Mom and dad both said prayers and gave him Reiki. It was hard seeing him like that. I wasn't allowed to go but mom kept me posted on his condition. Last night around 8PM, Aunt Carla called to say that GT had just passed away. I felt him go and let out a howl that scared mom and dad. I will miss my friend. We will all miss him very much. You can see GT in 2 of my video's.
