Today I took Jake back to the vet because his coughing hasn't stopped (see his blog). I dropped him off this morning for a day of x-rays and tests. He is in the early stages of congestive heart failure and will need to be treated with medication for the rest of his life. There is no guarantee that it will work, but we are sure hoping it does. I thought I had everything under control when I picked him up at the vet this evening, but I broke down and cried while the vet was talking to me and showing me his x-rays. He has an enlarged heart, a murmur, his lungs were filling with fluid, and he is slowly losing weight. If the meds work it's possible we could have him for a few more years, yeah!
