After flirting with death, Lexie has turned into the comeback kid.
Now finishing up her second week of eating regularly again, she’s gaining weight and strength. When I recently brought her to the vet to evaluate her renal failure, the doctor marveled at Lexie’s rebound.
“I didn’t expect her to make it,” she told us.
We didn’t either. Lex had stopped eating dog food, then food altogether. We slowly coaxed her back with extravagant meals of steak, meatballs and chicken. Then when Pink died, inexplicably her hunger returned.
Despite having cataracts, her eyes now are brighter. And she even loves to wrestle a bit. Last night for the first time she played tug-of-war with Charlie.
Whether it’s a medical miracle, or simply the power of prayer, Lexie appears to be on the mend. I thank you all for your continued love and support. At Our Furever Family, we can feel it.

That’s like a gift for me to hear this …honestly….I’m happy :o)))
We are so happy, too! It’s hard to believe it, each time she eats. I was so sure she was down for the count. Thanks so much!!!!
Also, Matt and I are loving looking at your blog this morning. It’s wonderful, and has given us many belly laughs!
This makes me really happy, I’ve been rooting for Lexie.
Really nice to see her recovering.
Can’t imagine how happy you are.
Thanks so much. It really makes no sense, but I am so happy that she’s eating again. And she looks so good! 🙂
That is just the most fantastic news I could possibly have heard. I am so glad that Lexie is doing better – yippee 🙂

Wow, she’s eating with gusto! I’m very happy for her!
Thank you! It’s amazing to witness. She ate almost a full can of special kidney diet food tonight. I’m hoping she keeps it up!!
