I was hoping I would not be back here on these boards so soon after Diamond's passing, but here I am...

Soxie began breathing a little erratic, so we took him to the emergency vet. Immediately, they put him on oxygen and diagnosed him with heart failure. They also found fluid in his lungs. As they ran more tests, they found he also has hyperthyroidism.

The doctor was able to drain the fluid and put him on meds to slow down the heart failure, but we have been told it is just a matter of time until the heart gives out.

The doctor wants to release him tonight so that he can go home and be in more comfortable surroundings.

Today is his 14th birthday, so it will be good to have him home. However, we are also devastated to know that this may be his last birthday.
