This is my latest email that just came in over the wire from my good buddy, Buddy Love. He emails me from time to time about how well he is doing on his healing. I have been blessed to be his veterinarian for the past 3 1/2 years and he and his Mom have done an amazing job of bringing him back from the brink of death.
I just had to tell you the FANTASTIC news!!!! The groomer that I have known since Barbara first found me, is AMAZED!!!!! He said that he cannot believe what a remarkable recovery I have made. He said that Barbara might not even notice the difference because she sees me every day. But he said that he had to agree with my other vets, 3 years ago, when they said that I would not make it unless I had heavy duty steroids. As a matter of fact, although I hate to think about it…. one of my vets even said that I would be dead in a month unless I started taking mega steroids immediately. (I know you have heard this one thousand times from Barbara… but I am so excited that I thought it was worth repeating again.)
My groomer said that I almost look the way I did when he first met me (see the attached photo). He said that almost all of my fur has returned. My eye lashes are growing back, I have fur around my eyes again, and… to top it all off…. I am getting patches of fur on my black chest. Imagine! Most men lose hair in their 80’s and 90’s! But, not me! Instead, my hair is growing back.
Well, I guess that is all for today! Barbara is so excited that she keeps jumping up and down. That is how I had a chance to borrow her computer.
So long for now!
Hugs and Licks,
