Extra Most Bestest Prayers Please


Recommended Posts

Glad to hear the meds are helping. Zuri ran very hot when he had osteo. It was the middle of summer too so my AC bills were outrageous.

I'm very sorry about the news, but delighted that she's having a good day.

 

Go Tanzi!

So far we have another good day. I got pix of her playing with a toy.

We went to Tractor Supply today. Her favorite place.

 

But she came outside when I was giving the chickens fresh water and was two legged when I brought her in the house.

But she seems ok now. It's egg day, so she got up for them. She was laying on her bad side and she usually cries getting up from that side.

I wish she would stop laying on that side. But she doesn't listen to me.

Pretty common for them to do that. Whether it just feels better or its a survival instinct (laying on it protects that area) who knows, but both of mine did it.

 

We doubled up a softer bed on an orthopedic bed and added a bolster. Zuri really seemed to like that. I also put a futon mattress with a memory foam cover down and that worked well.

Today's update.

 

Tanzi woke up ready to take on the world. But when I took her for a bitty walk, her left leg stopped working. Probably too cold, it was about 25. I rubbed her back end and we were able to get back to the car. She had trouble getting comfortable in the car but seems to be ok now and she's sleeping quietly.

 

Her appetite has hit the roof though. I think I've created a monster. I've been giving her anything and everything. Now she thinks anytime I go into the kitchen she is getting something good.

I've run out of roast beef, meatloaf, liverwurst, salami.

Luckily she loves "failed eggnog". Eggnog that curdled while being cooked. It's like sweet scrambled eggs. And since I had 2 failed batches in a row, 18 eggs, I have a lot of that. But at the rate she's eating it, it'll be gone in no time.

 

Just taking it one day at a time. I hope she feels good by the end of the week, it's supposed to reach 50. A temp I think she can handle.

Google cachexia in dogs, may be explain her hunger. Haven't experienced it with mine, but can happen. Hope the warmer weather helps her.

It actually states a loss of appetite. And she doesn't have any symptom except cancer.

She's not tired, no loss of weight or muscle mass.

 

I think it's just because she's getting a ton of really delicious food and I give it to her anytime she wants. She's always been a foodie. So when that's gone I know it's time.

With all due respect Mary Pat, what does this mean? What symptoms can possibly be worse than those of a very painful form of cancer?

 

Hoping for the best for your girlie.

We are almost at the same point with Misty...I don't have a definitive cancer diagnosis but there is a spot on her lung in the xray. She has good days of feeling better and eating, and other days when she just rests. Gabapentin and prednisone seem to be working to keep her comfortable. She is just tired and not very strong. It's hard with all the ups and downs--better one day, then worse the next. But I'm grateful for the time I have left with her. She has become very cuddly.

I’m sorry-it’s truly an emotional roller coaster:-(
