Thank-you to everyone who have stopped by today to leave your good thoughts and support for Jake. At the vet this morning, 'Dr. Taylor' made up for what he lacks in sincerity with excellent care and brutal honesty which I respect and very much appreciated. It has taken a little bit of doing, but the board of the rescue agreed to give Jake a chance, and he's been taken to a critical care unit and is in intensive care. He is on a heavy dose of antibiotics and fluids to try and get him to come around. However his condition has been described as 'grave' and there is not much hope from the vet's that this will change. Despite the cost of his care and the small odds of his recovering, the board of the rescue agreed with me to provide supportive care to see if there is any improvement by this evening. I am holding onto a little bit of hope and a spark I saw in Jake's eyes as I held his paw and kissed him good-bye.
