WE DID IT!!!

June 5, 2014 3:45pm

Dearest Friends, the Miracle of saving Rusty’s leg is truly upon us. WE DID IT. For 48 hours, my husband and I worked around the clock to bring LIFE back into Rusty’s paw and leg. I deliberately did not show his purple, weeping, extremely swollen paw, because it just wouldn’t have been right. Just take my word for it, his paw was seeping blood and serous fluid, bright purple, bright red and looked horrible.

At one point, I stepped into the shower and screamed and balled my eyes out. I really thought Rusty was not responding. I couldn’t hang on to the Faith Reigns and this Mom’s Heart hurt so bad, I just wanted to die.

Rusty’s last paw soaking was at 11:30pm last night, and the plan was to do a soaking every two hours that entire night. I looked at my husband, and said, “Enough. Rusty cannot do anymore and neither can I.” He screamed during each soak, and I holding him, forced his paw in that water, had tears streaming down my face. It had to be done, and we did it.

This morning, I looked at Rusty. Was I seeing things? His entire demeanor said Rusty and in examining his paw, I saw the swelling was down, and even though two of his toes were still a purple, all were warm. My husband and I again soaked that paw, and this time Rusty did not scream.

At 11am we took him in to see our usual Vet, and she was stunned to see the vast improvement in his paw. She just could not believe her eyes. She kept saying, “Good JOB, you guys, my God, good JOB!”

It is all due to prayer, LOVE, doing everything, and I mean everything we knew what to do, and kept doing it, just not plain giving up. I actually did give up at one point, just so exhausted, so scared, and still in such shock that this was happening.

I do not know how to thank you all. I don’t. A Miracle happened with Rusty and no one can convince me that it is not directly a result from prayer. Thank you from the bottom of my Heart, for helping us saving Rusty’s life. Our JOY baby shall remain with us in this dimension. Rusty chose LIFE.

I would like to start up with my regular posting and blogging tomorrow, yet, truth be told, I am so exhausted that I can barely stand. I will have to see how I feel. I do have a post ready to go up, and again, I may have to decide to close comments. When I am involved in saving a life, the exhaustion during and afterward hits me like a tsunami.

I really miss talking to you. I will again shortly. I promise. Now, I must recuperate from doing what I have been. God Bless you!

I DECIDED TO OPEN COMMENTS. IF I DON’T REPLY JUST KNOW I HAVE READ YOUR WORDS. I CAN FEEL HOW MUCH YOU WANT TO SAY CONGRATS TO ME!

AND OH HOW I LOVE YOU!

    1. God bless you, Dan. May God have seen all you did for us so you are Blessed in return. We couldn’t have done this alone. This came too close, just too close and it probably could have been avoided if the first vet had taken care of Rusty properly. I was reeling in shock, just finding him, so my usual on the spot know how as a medical professional was not there. When all is calm, and when this storm is completely over, I am writing a letter to the owner of this animal hospital alerting him that he has a Vet on staff that acted negligently. But that will be when I recuperate. This took everything out of me, Dan. Love, Amy

      1. Yes, Dan, it is. I lost a precious cat due to a Vet and this time, we came too close of history repeating itself. This time I will make sure the owners are fully aware of how my Rusty was not treated right and the direct ramifications of his actions. My total empathy from my Heart to yours for the pain you have gone through. (((HUGS))) Amy

This is not the first time we have done this, but when it does, it kicks our butts. We both are so exhausted. Bless you for your prayers and support. We honestly couldn’t have done what we did. This was too close, just too close. I gave up hope last night, and I never do that. Never. I really thought Rusty was not responding. If you had actually seen what his paw looked like, you would have thought so too. Oh, thank God the worst is behind us!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

  5. Dear, dear, Amy. I can’t believe all this happened while I was away. I am so very grateful that little Rusty is on the road to recovery. We just went through this — although not nearly as advanced as Rusty’s — with our new little kitten, Tippi. She had an abscessed foot but it opened, drained and healed. We, too, were doing soaks and antibiotics. It’s a nightmare with these little ones. You get some rest, dear lady. You’ve earned it. It just definitely sounds as though Rusty is on the mend now, thank Heavens. Love and hugs!

    1. Oh, Linda, thank you and bless you for commenting. Rusty has Cellulitis … the abscess hardened and went into the soft tissue. There was nothing to drain. It was a nightmare, God help me, and I don’t want to go through this ever again. This was too close, just too close. If my husband didn’t know Homeopathy, Rusty would not be on the mend. If you had seen his paw … Oh Lord. It was bad. Really bad. It turned purple. And it was so swollen that the skin split and he was bleeding. He still is. We are not out of the woods yet but the crisis is over. I am exhausted, and am ready to just drop. (((HUGS))) Amy

      1. Yes, YellowCable. I was not about to say no due to the life and death situation Rusty was in. We used both allopathic medication and Homeopathy. If it were not for my husband’s knowledge of Homeopathy, I know Rusty would probably not have made it. Or he would have lost his leg. That is how serious this was, and that is how much I believe in Homeopathy. xx Amy

    1. Eric, bless you for all your support. This was too close, just too close. And when I am recovered, as is Rusty, I will be contacting the owner of this animal hospital alerting him that there is a Vet who is negligent in his hospital. If Rusty had been treated as our Vet treated him the following day, after the brush off of Vet #1, I don’t think any of the extreme manifestations would have occurred. They would have been caught just in time. I am just SO relieved we have turned the corner. Yes, more treatments are necessary, but Rusty is going to live. With so much Gratitude, Amy

    1. Don’t I know. I’m still reeling with such dark circles under my eyes. Yet, that is not what is important. What is, Rusty is alive and he is getting better with each day. If it were not for Homeopathy, I truly believe he either would not be here with us today or he may have lost his leg. No, I am not able to prove it, but I did see when his paw was cool, after administering a certain Homeopathy remedy, his paw again gained warmth. That was within one half an hour after he got it. Yes, it was quite the battle. Thank you for your support and your concern. They are greatly appreciated. Love, Amy

    1. I am still so exhausted dearest friend, especially from the fallout coming from hubs. Rusty still is not out of the woods, his paw still so swollen and discolored so he is still getting treatments. He is such a wild free spirit, and now to have to keep him inside the house, I pray this does not break his spirit. After this, I am not willing to let him back out. He is a “sensitive”. The bugs just love him. I even pulled a small tick from off of him just 2 days ago. No. I’m pulling my hair out trying to figure this out, but no solution is coming. I still have to follow up making a report to the owners of this hospital that a Vet is negligent in his care towards animals. Then like I said hubs who when he falls apart which he did, it is a nightmare on top of a nightmare. Sue, there are times I really wish I could just walk out of my life into a brand new one. Is there retirement for Earth Angels? I’m ready. Love, Amy

It is cloudy here today, so I am going to be behind my camera getting these gorgeous Peonies, and more waterfalls as well. If I stop, I begin to shake and experience flashbacks of this nightmare. I must stay in Nature. Tomorrow I think I will reopen comments. Tomorrow’s post is a powerful one. I Love you, Sue! Thank you for being in my life! (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. Oh, Maryrose, your encouragement is blessed indeed. It was quite the scare, quite the battle, but this little one has chosen to stay. Oh, yes, he is attached to me in a very unique way. His paw is still so swollen, discolored, and he is not walking on it yet either. Back to the Vet (OUR Vet) we go today, because I honestly need her professional opinion and probably he will get one more fluid push. I really did NOT wish to stick him with needles because I have been the “mean guy” enough by forcing him to soak his paw in epson salts. So I have been giving him fluids by mouth as well as feeding him, getting that good nutrition in him. Blessed Art Thou, for You Matter. )0( AmyRose
