Please pray for our dog, Alex

It is hard to believe that we got this sprite little puppy eleven years ago. She has provided us with hours of fun, joy and happiness. Through our infertility and adoption she has always greeted us with a wet nose, wagging tail and doggy smile.

We ask for your prayers as we got some concerning news in her vet appointment this morning. She has a sore on her cheek which started to bleed last Saturday. It started to get better, but then Thursday it started to bleed again and I realized she can lick it and irritate it. She is due for her annual appointment anyways, so we took her in just as a precautionary measure.

It turns out the wound is infected and has irregular cells. The vet is highly concerned that it may be a cancerous tumor. He told us if it gets better on antibiotics that we will be in the clear, as the infections could be clouding the cell results. We are praying that she gets better and it is not cancer.

We already lost our cat earlier this year, and the thought of losing Alex makes me a puddle of tears. Thanks for your prayers.
