Buddy needs help!

Buddy, our beloved Big Change Recovery dog, is sick.  He is in renal failure and we are unsure as to the cause until the cultures come back.  We were told he wouldn't make it through the night last night unless we took immediate action, and of course it wasn't even a question on if we make that choice. We must do whatever we can to keep help save his life, as he is highly loved by all of those in recovery at "The Big House".... past, present and future.   He has given so much love to many many young people in recovery and now he is the one who needs the help... BIG TIME!

Thank you so very much!

10/19- An update from Amy on Buddy this a.m:
Very little change. Levels have improved but now has a lot of blood in his urine, maybe a clotting problem. More tests and another night in the ICU

Another update on Buddy (this evening): Sadly he's still in critical condition. His blood pressure is very high, and still a lot of blood in his urine and they aren't sure what's causing it. So, more waiting and praying.
