The past 3 weeks have been an emotional roller coaster for me. Our dog, Duke has been sick and loosing weight. We took him to the vet on July 9 and he was diagnosed with a bacteria infection and put on antibiotics, no improvement. Back to the vet on July 18, more antibiotics, still no improvement. Third visit to a different vet, who took an xray, found a mass pushing against his stomach, MRI revealed that his intestine was collapsing into the colon. He is only 9 months old and tough as nails, we couldn't give up on him, so he had surgery yesterday and we are hoping for the best.
Lots of prayers were offered and I believe that is the only thing that kept him alive. The vet couldn't believe he had survived 3 weeks in his condition.
I am thankful for the advancement in veterinary medicine, for God's blessings, and that Duke has a chance.
Today I spent sometime in the studio, I had a art journal page that I had some background colors on that I really liked and had been saving (for who knows what), so I just started putting down some paint, then drawing in a figure and this praying girl showed up. God is good.
I was also inspired by a print I purchased from Juliette Crane etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/juliettecrane.
Pets offer unconditional love and companionship, I cannot wait to get Duke home and watch him return to his old self.
Thanks for reading!
