PRAY FOR: Gunner, 13 yo. Aspiration Pneumonia, Mega Esophagus. Lord Jesus we ask that You would clear Gunner’s lungs of the fluid he inhaled. Enable him to bring up the mucus and fight the infection. Thank You that he has been so healthy up until now. We ask that he would survive this slight and be able to join his family in his happy place: the mountains, next month. Thank You that You always hear our prayers. In the Name of Adonai Rapha. God our Healer. Amen. <3 Caren

LK Laura 10-12-20: How do I go about getting a request in for my dog? His name is gunner. He’s a Labrador retriever and he’s in the hospital with aspiration pneumonia and they are diagnosing him with Mega Esophagus. His pneumonia hasn’t gotten better and he’s still in the ER vet. He is 13 and loves hikes and park days and prior to this was very strong and doing wonderfully. Because of COVID we aren’t able to see him and today he isn’t doing well. I’m worried he’s wondering why we aren’t there and he’s not eating because of it. Prayers for his recovering and for guidance for us for the journey ahead to mitigate ME would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Exodus 23:24 Do not bow down before their gods or worship them or follow their practices. You must demolish them and break their sacred stones to pieces. 25 Worship the Lord your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, 26 and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span.

Oh Laura I’m so sorry to see this about Gunner. I will post him for prayer as soon as I can.
How very difficult for you to be without him and for him to be without you. Will they let you come and at least visit him today? What state are you in?
I remember Gunners surgery from 2015.

LK Laura
Yes!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ and he did so well after that. We’ve had a lot of great years with him but want so badly for whatever time we have left with him not to be in a hospital away from us.
They won’t let us even visit. It’s so difficult. We are now in Florida, in the xxxxxxx area.
I was going to ask them if they could bring him outside to see us but I’m not sure if that will make it worse – seeing us just for a few minutes and then being gone again. They upped his antibiotics today since the others weren’t working.

This is the updated photo they sent us today.
He keeps regurgitating from the enlarged esophagus condition (they called it mega esophagus).
That’s what caused the aspiration pneumonia I guess. Thank you for remembering him. Literally brought tears to my eyes. I’ve been a mess.

Wow how crazy is that? I keep getting these reports from Florida even though everything is supposed to be opened up there I just don’t get it. I believe you are a Christian from our former conversation is that correct? If you’re familiar with the Book of Judges it seems to me that “everyone is doing what is right in their own eyes”. Never a good solution!

My husband and I will be praying for you and Gunner through the day today and I will post him first thing in the morning. If I’m able to post him before then I will do so I’m not sure how this day was going to go though.
Are you okay with me using our conversation on the website post?

LK Laura
Yes I am a Christian and I am definitely okay with that! Thank you!!
Unfortunately we are able to go to a bar or a full capacity restaurant but not visit my dog in a hospital. I don’t understand it. 😭

Okay sweetheart. We have a special place in our hearts for black labs. The dog who “raised” my husband was a black lab. But of course we have a heart for every pet we pray for and it’s always a joy to pray for sisters and brothers in Christ 🤗😍🙏Caren https://www.amazon.com/Jack-Dog-His-Victor-Brodt/dp/1452839948 Jack the Dog: And His Boy

Good grief yes, everyone did what was right in their own eyes! If people had any sense they would be doing the right thing based on a higher standard!
You might want to turn on a Bible app and listen through the Book of Judges we are living it.
I forgot to ask what is Gunner’s age now?

LK Laura
I will do that. Thank you for the recommendation. I’ve been saying the rosary the chaplet
Gunner is 13 years old now

He was still walking mile walks last week and walking 3 times a day. Playing, everything. We are supposed to bring him camping to the mountains in nov.
His fav place

As you pray those prayers focus on who Jesus is and what he has done for you personally. Well thanks for that I will be praying specifically that he will be able to go to the mountains with you.
I do recommend that you listen to the Book of Judges. It’s amazing to see how throwing God out of the picture devolves everything into chaos.

LK Laura
Do you have an app you recommend to listen to it?

Yes BIBLE APPS https://prayersforpets1.org/need-answers-2/
