Sad Day for Lottie

My Lottie Latte sweet puppy must have jumped down from her favorite chair one too many times. She ran for her dinner like always. Gobbled it up as quickly as possible and raced to the door to go out, as always. But suddenly I noticed that she was having trouble with one of her legs. She hopped around and managed to squat down and pee. Then it became obvious that she couldn't move her back legs. I picked her up and took her in the house so I could break the news to Jill who had been in bed for 2 days with a virus. I asked her to come hold Lottie while I called the vet and did a couple of other things. Next I called Tom. He was in the car on 360 so we decided that he would come home first and we would take Lottie together to the emergency animal hospital. That's where she is now, waiting to have surgery tomorrow. Only other thing is, Rachel is camping, so she doesn't know about Lottie yet, because she didn't pick up her phone when Tom called her. She's probably going screenless tonight, otherwise known as unplugged. I guess it doesn't hurt to not know for a little while longer.

It's time to remember and pray Psalm 46:1 - "God is my refuge and strengh, a very present help in times of trouble."

And to truly believe and practice, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart."

I lift Lottie up to you Lord, and pray for guidance for the surgeon tomorrow.
