Well, we had big thunderstorms last night. I did my usual hide under the end table thing. Even Hunter, who's not been scared of anything, was sort of trembling a little bit.
And, Hunter is having to get another liver test done on Tuesday. His blood work shows a bit of a high liver enzyme reading, and we've got to get him "normal" before he can be treated for his heartworms.
We love Hunter, and we pray we can get him well and ready for a long and healthy life with a wonderful forever family soon.
