Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve written…it’s been a long couple of weeks. The good news is my Cushings test came back negative. Bad news is I had a yeast infection on my neck and fungal infection on my back from my allergies. Arthritis has come on pretty strong in one of my front legs as well. So, for the next couple of weeks, this is what my medicine schedule looks like:
Depending on the day, I get 12 or 13 pills – 4 or 5 at breakfast, 2 at lunch, 4 at dinner and 2 at bedtime. My bedtime vitamins are so big they don’t even fit in the pill box! I can’t complain too much because this just all means extra peanut butter for me.
The medicine for my arthritis makes me kind of sleepy so I’ve been taking a lot of nappies. One of the good side effects of having arthritis is mom and dad feel bad for me, so they moved my big Molly Mutt into their room and I get to sleep on that instead of in the crate. Every night I climb onto my bed and daddy tucks me in. I sleep on moms side of the bed so she checks on me through the night if I wake up or make noises. It’s good to know that I’m loved!
