Sweetpea Update 8/1/2012

SWEETPEA UPDATE: Please keep praying for this little guy. The only thing I can say now is that thank God he is in the hands of the Animal Urgent and Critical Care Center staff and Rebecca Akins and Aaron Fortin, and 4 Paws 1 Heart. The suffering he would have gone through had he still been with his despicable owner is too overwhelming to think about. ~ diana

Sweetpea McGee is still at the ER vet and is being treated for a variety of concerns. We have been able to confirm that Sweetpea McGee is in fact deaf, has a stage 4 heart murmur, and it looks like the beginning signs of pneumonia. His drain tube is holding steady in his neck and the swelling has decreased in size slightly. For now, he has been started on antibiotics for the pneumonia, will have a series of chest x-rays and a blood CBC tonight, and is being watched closely by many knowledgeable people who care about him. He is eating, was more alert tonight and even nudged his foster mom’s hand when she stopped petting him for a nano-second. =)

As soon as we know more we’ll post an update. As always, positive thoughts are appreciated! ♥
