Thai update!

Thai's cortisol is UP!  Now it is 6.3, which is way above the normal range (normal is 1.0 to 5.0)  A third medicine is going to be prescribed and hopefully will work!  A tumor on the adrenal or pituitary glands could be the cause of the constantly rising cortisol levels, and due to his advanced age of 14, surgery is out. 

What's Her Name and Dad took Ginger, Chip and Thai to Pet Supplies Plus for their food shopping- What's Her Name almost ran out of our kibble- the nerve of her!  Usually, Thai is chauffered around in his throne, trying to get out and follow Chip and Ginger on the leash.  This time, he enjoyed the adulation shown by his subjects, and enjoyed the comforts of his throne. 

What's Her Name is really upset by this- she wants her baby back NOW- Thai is fussy all the time and restless, due to the Cushings, BUT he doesn't smile anymore!  He isn't in any pain, but is getting picky about his foodables, and is suspicious as to what the daily chees holds!  He spits out the meds, so What's Her Name has to camoflage it with the duck treats from Canada sent by Ruby and Penny.  (Thai LOVES those, even though they give him the runs, so to speak)

Please keep him in your prayers, and go bid on the auction being held for Ronnii and Richie!
