Jake


Yesterday we found out that Jake's heart condition is worsening. His abdomen is now filling with fluid (this is why I took him to the vet yesterday). His water furosemide pill has once again been increased to try to help him get rid of the extra fluid his body is retaining due to his poor heart. We know he won't be with us too much longer now. We have had him since the boys were 2 and 3 years old (10 yrs), Michael says he can't remember not having him. It will be difficult to say goodbye.
