Athena is a 14 wk old Newfoundland puppy w/ severe aorta stenosis, severe ventricular fibrillation and heart arrhythmia. Her heart grade has gone from 3 to 5 over 6. Athena is scheduled for the heart surgery tomorrow. Without the surgery, she could collapse at any minute and die. She is a severe case. This is the same type of surgery performed on infants using the balloon inserted into the aortic valve to stretch it. This is still experimental surgery on dogs. So far all 7 surgeries performed have been successful. Let's just pray Athena makes the 8th success story.

I believe in the power of prayer. I also believe Athena was put into our lives for a reason and we can't let her down. Athena is a fighter. She is so obedient, so loving, so loyal. She's already possessing wisdom at such a young age.

Please keep Athena in your prayers. I'm not ready to say goodbye to her yet.

Here's my montage for my little girl, Athena Hope.


My Montage 8/22/09 at One True Media - share slideshows, slide shows, MySpace slideshows, MySpace codes, free video sharing, video montages.


"And now I do believe,
That even in a storm, we'll find some light;
Knowin' you're beside me,
I'm alright."

"Please, don't let this feelin' end,
It might not come again;
And I want to remember
How it feels to touch you;
How I feel so much,
Since I've found you
Lookin' through the eyes of love."
