It’s been a very hard last couple of days. I didn’t know what they meant when they told me being a nicu parent was a rollercoaster ride.. but now it makes perfect sense. My little lion had to get intubated again Friday night because he kept having apneic spells. Witnessing them was the scariest thing. Yesterday he got his 4th blood transfusion and got a PICC line inserted in his other little arm. So much for that little 1 1/2 lb body to take... but he’s taking it. Still pushing Deeana’s hand (his fav nurse) away every time she fixes him in his bed and wiggling his way out of his blankey and froggy when he’s wrapped like a burrito just so he can be touching and pulling on everything. 24 days old and riding out this journey we both had no idea we were going to have to encounter. Every day is a day closer to him coming home. 🦁💪🏻🙏🏻💙 #youcandoitleon#weloveyou#almosthome#23weeker#micropreemie#preemie#leonsjourneyoutofthenicu#littlelion#myheart
Below is from our foster mom ❤ :
In memory of our precious little Tiny we ask you to please foster or rescue a shelter pet. Dogs and cats needing forever homes thrive so much better in foster homes than in shelters.
I am a volunteer for Almost Home Animal Rescue. This was Tiny my 10 yr old blind foster dog that I had cared for like my own for the past 6 months.
Today, as her foster mom, I had to assist in making the decision to send her over The Rainbow Bridge. She recently developed a large mass on her spleen. She was fragile so surgery was not a good option for her. Tiny was incredibly smart. She was fully blind and adapted quickly to her new home and her furry friends. She loved her playmates, belly rubs, and naps on a warm lap.
If you can open your home to saving a dog's life please try and do it. As sad as today is for us our hearts are filled with love. She had a wonderful, loving, and peaceful last few months of her life here in our home.
All dogs need a chance at a happy and fulfilling life. I was so grateful to have been a part of her life. I will miss her like my others that have gone.
