More than just a river in Egypt

So we look at Ceilidh and can't believe anything's wrong with her. If I hadn't seen the EKG for myself, I wouldn't believe it. But there's not much arguing with two separate tests with scarey flat lines that seem to go on forever before that reassuring little bump that says - not done yet!
And she's not. Not by a long shot. Because Ceilidh has no symptoms, her vet says we can work with medication, trying to get her dosage right, seeing what effect it has, etc. Another EKG in three weeks and we'll see where we are.
In the meantime, we intend to ignore the situation entirely, aside from giving her the pills. There's a lovely view from this wonderful place called "denial." Visit anytime!

OMD! I can't believe this! I'm really glad she's feeling good.

I have a friend, Charlie, in Australia that had a pacemaker put in recently.

He started a website and forum for pets with pacemakers, to share all they learned, and what others are learning.

And I did a Squidoo lens on the subject.

Just in case you'd like to read up.

Sending loads of doggie prayers (which are the best, btw).

Thank you, Fuzzy! We were very lucky - the vet heard her heart murmur before any symptoms developed, so we're hoping she'll be with us for a long, long time!

Johann - I can always count on you for wonderful information and references - Thank you!
