Good news!

My buddy Patches had his appointment with the specialist yesterday to see why his heart was so big.

It's because he's so loved, of course!

The good news is, although he has heart disease, he isn't in heart failure and doesn't need any medication! He has leaky valves in his heart, but they still work. He has a little tumor in his heart, and that's probably the reason he had his collapse a few weeks ago. But otherwise it's not interfering with things, so we're just going to monitor it and make sure he's still doing okay. He won't have to go back to the dogtor to check on it for six whole months, so they're confident he's doing okay for now.

PHEW!!!! What a relief to his worried foster family -- and his whole family here at LBR!
