About a year ago I was feeling pretty bad, but I’m a guy so I hesitated to go to the doctor. I finally went and he told me it was my thyroid. A few months later and I still wasn’t feeling better. I was exhausted from the least bit of strenuous exercise. Going to and from the barn would wipe me out. I slept a lot back then.
Lani comes out on the deck with me each day and every time I came back from the barn she would lower her head, sniff and growl at me. I didn’t know what to make of it. I went back to the doctor and they did an EKG. Nothing unusual. Lani continued to growl at me each time I came back from the barn. I started to think maybe she knew something I didn’t, so I went back to the doctor and insisted on a treadmill stress test. A week later, I failed. I was admitted immediately and two later, I had quintuple bypass surgery. Turns out I was 90% blocked.
She still smells me when I come back from the barn, but she doesn’t growl. I know now that the next time she does, I have to get to the doctor ASAP. Just wanted to share the story of my rescue angel. Dave
