Our household is beginning to get back to normal after Minnie's sickies set in. She has not vomited again and shows no signs of pain. We are decreasing her medications and increasing the amount of boiled chicken and rice (yummy) she gets. She still getting 4 small meals a day. Mack says it is NOT fair!!!!
She yearns for "real food" but is such a trooper. She takes her meds without a fight or having to hide them in food. When Mack eats his "real food" she doesn't crowd around him. We still have to be on guard when she is outside since she always, always wants to eat grass and that was a BIG no no from the doctor. Since it has been so hot out, we haven't really missed any long hikes. It's going to be back near 100 again for the rest of the week, so we won't have been outside much anyway.
Minnie has her follow up ultra sound late Monday afternoon. We have our paws crossed that her pancreas is less inflamed and enlarged.
It's funny (not really) that returning to normal life would be a such a blessing! We need a reminder every now and then of all the wonderful family and friends - furred and unfurred - we have!
Minnie this afternoon, after napping!
Each day Minnie seems a little more energetic and her old self. Today she found one of her most favorite mini tennis balls hiding in the pachysandra in the back yard. She pulled it out and dropped it but did not yet try to place fetch with me and it.
The hardest part of all was seeing her in so much pain and not able to make it go away or know what or where on her body it was coming from. We have wonderful vets!!!
We thank all our Blogville friends again for such support and love.
Minnie, Mack, Hu-mom and hu-dad
