Week 2!!!!

Week 2 is done and under our belts!!!!

Sweetie is continuing to improve- while she cannot support herself on her rear legs, she is able to wag her tail easily and one is able to see the muscles in her legs tremble during he day

She is urinatng up a storm!  WHN is having to change out and wash her bedding up to five times a day and last night was the first time that everyone slept in the bedroom!  Sweetie did urinate while sleeping but the pee pad under her bed helped with that situation.

She is suffering from the urinating- her skin is red where she pees so we are washing her off each time to alleviate the irritation.  Hopefully that will end as her steroids taper off- she starts the one a day dosage today and next weekend starts the once every other day

Her appetite is fantastic and she has not lost any interest in food.

While not expecting a full recovery, her improvement is wonderful.

We're so happy to hear she is doing better. Our mom knows how you feel about the bedding situation. When one of our Angel Sisters was very old she would only poo and pee in her sleep too.

So glad to hear the wonderful news. We're still keeping our paws crossed for her.
