When I brought Josh home in November of 2013, no one knew that he had blastomycosis. My vet soon diagnosed him, and we were in for a long 16 months of treatment and recovery, to include about 20 days hospitalization at Medvet Cincinnati. But he did recover, and we’ve had a wonderful time together. On the 13th last week, we returned to Medvet for what turned out to be emergency surgery to remove his spleen, which had a mass on it that had ruptured. There were days that were touch and go, but I was finally able to bring him home this past Saturday. Sadly, Sunday morning he collapsed and died. I have to believe that all he wanted to do was get home, see me, and then cross over. Josh was so loved, and I miss him terribly. Rest in peace, my Honey Bear.
