Thoughts and prayers needed for my beautiful Cali......

Hi guys,

My beautiful Calista (Cali) has had a set back and needs all the postive thoughts and prayers you can send her.  She has a rough road ahead and right now, the prognosis is not good.  She is only 13 or 14 months old.  Her life in Greece was so horrendous that her immune system is not working.

I have to stay postive so that she senses it.  Hard right now but I think both Cali and I will start taking Rescue Remedy. 

I stopped all conventional drugs and now Cali and I are going totally holistic to help her.

I only lost Isabela 6 1/2 months ago.  I am not willing to lose Cali too.

Thanks everyone.  This is a rough time in my life right now.

Di and the 9 furred and feathered. 

I'll be thinking of you and Cali every day.  Be strong and try to enjoy your time with her, as troubled as it is.  We'll be here for you when you get a minute and need us.

Thank you so much.  Sleep doesn't come easy to me right now and it is 2:20.  I have to get up in 4 hours.  Tomorrow, I will make a list of what I need to get and go get it all after work.  The organic raw liver is gross to me but it is something she needs very badly right now.  I will do everything she needs.  I know we are never given more than we can handle but I wish the powers that be would stop testing me.  I just told Cali that when we go camping for two weeks this summer, she will have her hair back and be her usual wonderful self.  Now, I have to convince myself that this will be true and happen. Thanks again for your kind words.

Hi Diver-Di, As I told you the other night, Cali will get through this. Her body is just going through a pretty big detox period. Most it of from the meds and chemicals your previous vet gave her, or told you to give her. Just think about it this way.....what goes down must come up! Everything will balance out in the end. Once her body rids itself of the "junk" inside, with all you are doing for her now...the bad is, and will continued to be, pushed out. I promise you she'll be ready to go hiking in NY this summer. We all look forward to seeing her pictures (I'd love to see her standing proud high atop of Mt. Marcy)!

Aww..I'm so sorry she's not doing well. Cali will be in my thoughts and prayers. I know she will pull thru this and before you know it youll be posting about your wonderful hiking adventures together.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.  There are many people rooting for Cali and I am going to do everything in my power to get her well. 

Dave, you made me shed a tear when I read your post.  Yes, Cali will come camping with me in the summer!  Is Mt. Marcy near Fish Creek State park?  In the Adirondacks?

Once again, thank you everyone.  Please continue to send the postive thoughts Cali's way.  This is going to be a long haul but one I am willing to make and hopefully, Cali is willing to do the same.

Hugs
Di

My condolences during a trying time. I know many of you are not religious, I am however. No disrespect meant to those who are not, but remember God /Life never hands out more than He/it knows you can handle. You are an amazing person from what I have seen, and I have NO doubts that Cali will be hiking/camping with the BIGGEST grin with you when the time comes. I am tearing up as I type this because I have met so many AMAZING people on vegweb since joining, you, Dave ( who i know only from his posts) and countless others with so much compassion, not only for animals, but for their fellow human being.

I have a neighbor and friend who just yesterday had to let go, and put one of his beloved rats to sleep/peace. I don't know how some of you feel about that, but I feel it was the greatest act of kindness on his part. She was suffering so badly. For those of you who have never had to TRY to comfort a 40 y/o man as he cried on your shoulder, let me tell you its HEART WRENTCHING!

Di- I know I do not know you personally, but I would like to say that you take my breath away. You are unrelentingly unselfish, and give 210% for those who matter the most to you. For what it is worth in the short time you have had Cali, you have already given her life, happiness, and all the desire she needs to get better. Thru your love, anything will be possible.

My prayers are with you both

Cristina, my sympathy with your neighbor as well-- sometimes it is simply what one has to do for an animal in pain, and I have made peace with the idea that someday it may be necessary for my beautiful little friend. 

Di, any news on Cali?  How are you both holding up?

Thank you everyone! 
Cristina, your post made me cry too.  Cali is not doing well.  I see the depression in her eyes.  We are waiting for a supplement to arrive from the states.  Hopefully will be here by Wednesday.  She is still such a baby and I want her to experience life, fun and joy.  I am not giving up. 
I can't say much about the supplement because I don't know much about it.  None the less a friend is sending it to me and my holistic vet is quite excited to try it.  When Isabela was dying, I felt helpless.  I feel that way again.  We are now both taking Rescue Remedy.  I hate seeing Cali this way.
Cristina, thanking you for helping your friend.  Many people think rats, hamsters, birds etc., are not important in our lives but love is love.  Everytime a fish passes away in my nephew's tank, my sister is so sad.  Needless to say, she tends to look after the fish.

Once again, thank you everyone.  The love and support from this board blows me away.  I will keep you posted as often as I can.  Will be spending every spare moment with Cali.  The others too as they have to be part of this and not to feel left out as whatever unfolds, unfolds.

My gratitude to you all is overwhelming.  Thank you!

Hugs
Di

P.S.  Cristina, thank you for feeling welcome to talk about your religious beliefs.  That is why this board is so special.  We are all different but very much the same. 

Cali....you have a great name!  My Cali is Calista which means the most beautiful one in Greek.

Thanks Lezly.  Things are not so great but we do what we have to do.  As I have been sick for a few weeks, I am tired.  So, I have to start taking care of myself so I am strong for Cali.  Harold will be 19 in March and is getting quite feeble.  None the less, she wasn't well and has seemed to have found her second wind in life.  What a little trooper.  She has also after all these years started to stick up for herself which is so cute and refreshing to watch!

I may be in Colorado for a week the summer of 2008.  Maybe we will finally meet!

Hugs

Nothing like positive thoughts from Newfoundland!  My dad is from Newfoundland and I have been many times and love it there.  I have always said, when I pass...I want my ashes scattered in the ocean in the Caribbean.  Now thinking the British Virgin Islands.  But I have always said if I can't be in warm water...I want to be scattered in the ocean in Trinity, Trinity Bay!

Thank you so much!

I Di!
Contact me about Cali when you get a chance (you have my email). I'm going to my vet today (with a new dog I found last night). I'll ask her what she thinks about Cali.  I have to say, she has brought some very sickly rescues back from the brink of a final breath. My thoughts are with you guys. Just show her the love she needs (which I'm sure you are).....sometimes, after the life these dogs have had, it's really all they need to get better.

Thanks Dave.  I will.  I will be at the vets tonight (every Tuesday and Thursday).  The treatment is long so I leave my place at 5:30 and get home around 11:00pm.  I am so tired and the drive is long.  Will email in the next day or two.  I need some sleep.  Have been up since 1 :30 and now must go to work.
Will try to email tomorrow night.
