A Labrador with Renal Failure Who Wasn’t Expected to Live
I’d l like to call this testimonial, “A miracle for Daisy.” Daisy is my son, Jim’s beautiful red fox colored Labrador, and she is less than 2 years old. I watch Daisy and my 3 year old grandson while my son and daughter-in-law are at work. In early March, I noticed that Daisy’s appetite was getting very poor, and she seemed to be drained of her youthful energy. One night my son called me and told me that Daisy developed a pronounced limp in one of her front legs. He thought perhaps she hurt herself in their backyard. I guess we all thought it was just a minor sprain or bruising and she’d shake it off in a day or two. However, after a couple days, Daisy grew weaker and her limp got worse.
After my son got home from work, he asked me to accompany him to our local ER vet hospital since Daisy was not getting any better. At that point we were just thinking that maybe Daisy was suffering from a fracture or torn ligament, and her pain affected her energy level and appetite. While we were at the ER vet hospital, they did an x-ray and showed us that there was much swelling in her front leg, but no breaks or fractures. They did not run any blood tests that night which surprised me. While Daisy was still in the back getting a shot for her pain, they instructed my son to give Daisy the pain meds and an anti-inflammatory daily for a week. When they finally brought Daisy to us, she was so disoriented and extremely weak. We asked the vet tech what kind of shot was given to Daisy? She said they gave her a morphine shot since her swelling was so severe. We were not happy to hear that they did that to her especially without consulting my son first ! Poor Daisy lost her bowel and bladder control as we were leaving in the hospital entranceway.
Daisy was actually in worse shape after the hospital visit. I feared that Daisy was so drugged that she might lose bowel/bladder control throughout the night, so I volunteered to keep her that night. I knew Daisy would be quiet at my home, since my son and daughter-in-law were very busy with my two little grandsons both under 3years old. I then decided to actually kept Daisy for the week to give her around the clock care and to give her the meds on time. My youngest son, my husband and I all took turns sleeping with Daisy in my family room. I set a comfortable bed for Daisy in my family room which gave her easy access to the back door leading to our backyard.
As the days went on, Daisy appeared to get a bit better as far as her leg went. Her limp was going away. However, she still had chronic fatigue and a poor appetite. My son, Jason did a great job in hand feeding her and syringing water in her mouth every day. Since I was still concerned about Daisy’s overall health, I was happy to hear that Samantha, my daughter-in-law and Jim decided to get Daisy fully checked out at her regular vet. Daisy was to stay there all day for testing. My son asked me to pick her up later that day, in which I did. When I got to the vet that day, I really didn’t know what to expect since I knew Daisy’s lack of an appetite was not good. Well, the report was devastating which brought me to tears, I was told Daisy was in “end stage renal failure.” I felt like I was in shock, denial and grief all at the same time! Her doctor said that Daisy ingested a toxic liquid of some kind which lead to this, and of course her vet said with good care she can survive but not for long.
Fortunately, Jim and Samantha were both phoned with this news, so I didn’t have to tell them.
So, I took our Daisy home with her special food and instructions. She was to get IV’s every day to flush her kidneys and liver. Needless to say we all did a lot of crying, it wasn’t until I finally spoke with Alan that our tears turned to hope and joy. I’m a person of faith and I prayed every night for Daisy’s healing. One night I decided to google stories of dog healings. However, most stories I read were about how dog’s love was a healing force for individuals who were sick or disabled. They were wonderful, heart warming stories, but I was looking for actual stories of sick dogs who were miraculously healed. I always believe in God’s healing for humans so of course since God created all animals to be our companions in this life, why not healings for them too?
Then I happened to see a story by Alan Mesher. It was a heart warming story of how he was watching a little poodle for a friend and unfortunately the little dog was brutally attacked by a large dog. Alan wrote how he heard the noise of the punctured diaphragm of the poodle. Alan and his girlfriend rushed the dog to the vet and was given a grim diagnosis that the dog might not last the night. Alan felt helpless and went into a deep meditation focusing on the poodle’s healing. The next day, the vet gave him miraculous news about the poodle’s total healing and how the diaphragm hole sealed up miraculously at the exact time Alan sent out his healing to the little dog. This healing testimonial from Alan gave me such hope that healings do exist for our animal companions.
I sent a message to Alan telling him how much I appreciated his story and how I am holding on to hope and prayer for Daisy’s life. Now I didn’t really expect an answer back, since I knew Alan was a famous man and very busy no doubt. Well, later in the day I was so surprised that Alan wrote me back to call him. Unfortunately, it was too late to call him back that evening since there was an hour difference in our locations. Alan’s in Florida and I’m in Illinois, an hour earlier. When I finally got to speak with Alan the next day, I told him all about Daisy. He gave me such hope that Daisy will be healed. Alan told me to call him every morning at 9am, in which I did and he instructed me to put my cell phone on speaker and put it near Daisy’s lower back area where her kidneys are.
After that first energy healing session, Daisy’s energy started to come back and miraculously her appetite was coming back. I was amazed and so excited in knowing that Daisy was actually getting better. Alan was so kind and devoted to Daisy’s healing that the morning sessions took place every day for several weeks. After every session by Alan, I saw how Daisy was actually coming back to life ! Her appetite came back full force, her playfulness came back, her energy level was up, her tongue was pink again and no longer grey!
I was so happy, and even though I know my kids were not too happy with me for keeping their dog here for several weeks, it was recommended by Alan, and they saw how Daisy was being healed and they too were happy.
Daisy’s last blood tests revealed that all her levels were going in the right direction toward “Normal” !! She actually went from severe anemia to a normal red cell count and to normal liver enzymes. Daisy’s vet couldn’t believe his eyes when he last saw Daisy, he said she looked like a totally different dog. Her eyes were bright and not blood shot as they were before, and she had healthy energy. Now he didn’t know that Daisy was actually feeling the healing effects from her sessions with Alan, but all of us knew this is why Daisy came back to us. I believe God answered my tearful prayers for Daisy’s healing and He directed me to Alan’s poodle story. And that first call from Alan was the beginning of Daisy’s healing journey. Alan, truly has a gift from God to heal our animal companions with his healing love energy for them. I will be forever grateful to him for his weeks of devotion to Daisy’s healing sessions.
Thank you Alan for being our Daisy’s guardian angel !!
God Bless You and Your Gift,
Love, Gina and Daisy
