I remember when Lucie was slated to die- the odds werent with her (IMHA) and I talked to an artist friend who’s dog had had IMHA. She said that her dog had completely recovered, and was fine for 5 years. Then it came back out of nowhere. They did a blood transfusion, and her dog died. I remember feeling that I would be SO GRATEFUL for another 5 years with Lucie. I NEVER saw her being as healthy as she is now again. Lucie got Valley Fever AFTER she had IMHA. she didnt use her left leg for a year. I am just SO GRATEFUL that she made it thru, and we have time together.
