A Month of Thankfulness: Day Twelve

I am so thankful for Charlie's vet! Over the years, he's become downright panicky about visiting the vet's office. And with good reason! From his point of view, bad things happen there. But Dr. Sharon has been so kind to Charlie even when he taxes that kindness to its limit. And she has given him the best of care. Today we had to see Dr. Sharon for three reasons...Charlie needed bladder X-rays to make sure no new stones were growing there, chest X-rays to check on his heart condition, and the removal of a wart that continued to ooze blood no matter what we've done to try to heal it. Normally, that wart would have been removed under general anesthesia but, because of Charlie's heart condition, it was done with a local. And he had to be muzzled. Not a happy camper. But Dr. Sharon got down to business and all was accomplished quickly and efficiently. The X-rays look good and the wart is gone! Praise God for good veterinary care for my sweet Charlie!
