From your Boston_Buddies founder and her baby Winston Bair  
My husband thought I should update you all on Winston's health. Lately he's been to the vet quite a bit. He's been "fainting" a lot. Winston's vet says that he thinks he's not getting enough Oxygen to his brain and when he get's excited he faints. I gotta tell ya, it's freaks me out every time it happens. Friday I took him to a doggy specialist and he had an ultrasound done on his heart. He has fluid around his heart and lungs and has a leaky valve in his heart. He's been on lasix for about a week to try to drain off some of the fluid. It's seemed to help him a lot. Monday he starts another medication to help his little heart.

On another note:

I almost forgot about the Boston_Buddies Location Map. If you haven't already put yourself on our ClusterMap please feel free to do so. It's on the Boston_Buddies User Info page. I can't believe how many members we have now! Over 800! I may not post very often but I check in on this page almost everyday. I have really enjoyed all your pictures and stories over the years.

I hope your all doing well and that this winter hasn't been to hard on you or you special Boston_Buddies.

Winston sends his love & kisses :-)

Poor Winston! That's got to be so scary for you. How old is Mr. Winston?

He is nine years old. My poor baby. I cried a lot the day of the ultrasound but the doctor thinks that this new medication should help him a lot.

Aww. I've got a nine-year-old, too. Not old, but not young either. Breaks my heart how fast time flies with these guys, ya know? I hope all goes well with the new meds. Keep us posted!

awe Mary!!! I will be thinking of Winston all the time. Will he just have to take the heart medication forever then?
The Bairs Denbair on January 12th, 2009 12:31 am (UTC)
Thanks sweetie, yes, he will have to take it for the rest of his life. I don't think he's gonna care. We package his pills for him in a nice big dallup of peanut butter. :-0
