I feel as though I had a true ""God encounter experience"" today. It was so strong I feel compelled to share it with my community. For two weeks I have been fighting a losing battle against glaucoma in the eyes of my 13 year old faithful Black Labrador, Sandy. I needed immediate answers now as to the disposition of my beloved pet - remove her eyes, leaving her totally blind vs euthanesia. Dr. Hills first concern was for the comfort of my dog. Upon a thorough examination he determined that her body was rejecting all her prior medications and she had developed ""entropian"", a condition is which the eyelids sag, turn in and cut on the corneas - very painful. Her eyes were full of blood and blood was draining from her nose. The full geriatric work up included blood, EKG, stool specimen revealing a parasitic infestation, severe anemia, and a bacterial infection.He quickly developed a completely new, challenging and intensive treatment program. The rapid turn around in her comfort level and behavior was in truth my ""God encounter moment."" A miraculous change in her in 12 hours and upon her follow up 24 hours later, he was pleased as well to see how rapidly she was responding to the new treatment and that her eyes wouldn't have to be surgically removed. I went immediately to my church and thanked God for what had been done for us. I also have a chocolate Lab who sustained a close-range gun-shot wound to her left ear and face that required emergency surgery. She never has been able to mind her business and riled up dogs on an adjoining ranch - this time paying a very high price. Dr. Hill saw her just a quickly as I could get her there and performed needed surgery in a timely fashion. Her prognosis is excellent. Again, I thank God for Dr. Hill and his staff.
What can I say of this tremendous diagnostician and surgeon? Dr. Hill and his staff have done so much for my extended family. In conclusion I ask, "" Do the people of Wilson and surrounding counties truly realize what is available to us on a 24/7, 365 day per year basis?""
God bless you Dr. George Hill and staff for your selfless efforts. We will never forget!
