Need good thoughts

Mr. Maximus, my million dollar baby, is severely injured. Something has happened to his cervical spine and he cannot walk well right now. He is at out vet for care- mainly steroids and rest. Tomorrow we take him to the neurologist because he is getting worse instead of better which means surgery might be our only option. Even then, the odds of surgery are somewhat scary. If it's not surgery, it's the big E. I am not prepared.

I can't eat.
I can't sleep.
I can't stop crying.

But the world will not stop for my crisis, so I must complete homework assignments due tonight, and take an exam for school. I have to be a mom and try to not fall apart in front of Becks. I will have to explain to my boy why his dog isn't here. I have to find a way to cope and I really just want to sit in a very dark room, in a very tight small, and wallow in my sadness.

Please think of Max.

Please hug your babies for me.

And please take pictures of them. I am realizing I haven't taken a photo of him in weeks and I may never forgive myself for that.


  1. HI, I am a new reader and a HUGE HUGE animal lover and rescuer...I will pray for you, your dog and family. I just went thru something like this and not too many people understand as I had to take off work and I couldn't leave my bed. Animals are family and I hope God will answer your prayers!

  2. We will keep our paws crossed, I am so sorry to hear about him, please keep us posted and we will keep yall in our prayers.

  3. I am so sorry to hear this. I will keep you, Maximus and your family in my thoughts. Please keep us updated.

  4. I am so sorry to hear about this. We are sending positive thoughts and keeping you with us.


  5. Oh no :( I'm so sad to hear your Max is injured. I will hold positive thoughts for him and your family.

    Sending love and hugs ~Maureen & HoneyBuzz

  6. We'll be thinking about you and praying for you and Max. I hope something can be done for him!

  7. Oh my God I am so sorry. Max looks just like my Greighson and I would be inconsolable if I was in your position.

    But you have to keep strong and maintain positive thoughts.
    They say humans with a positive attitude always heal faster and their recovery rates are much higher.
    You have to maintain that for Max.

    Together you will get through this.

  8. So extremely sorry and sad as I read more about your beautiful, sweet boy.
