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!
