Tess and I, had a bad day--

Monday, January 13, 2014

Yesterday, Tess, our resident German (as in dog)-with Blasto---had a bad day---
It started when I cut her Prednisone DOWN----to 5mgm---
I'm pretty sure she had a fever all day--wouldn't eat--and by evening , was having trouble breathing--
I lay in bed , listening to her panting , loud--and hard!
So, I got up-----took the Herd (Tess, Coal and Fat Cat)-and went down to the sofa in the living room--
Needless to say--"I've had better nights!"
Eventually, Tess started to breath easier----
Good thing for the Hokey Pokey clinic----
...a great place to go to ""turn around"----
Lord Love A Duck!

    I'm so sorry to hear about Tess's health challenges and about how it's affected your sleep. This has certainly been a long hard road for both of you. What do the vets say about her prognosis?

    As for the Hokey Pokey Clinic...what a GREAT idea!!! Hope today is better for you, Lynda.

    I hope Tess and you are feeling a little better today. Perhaps a nap would help.

    It makes me question the wisdom of cutting back on her dose of medication. Hope all is well today! HUGS!

    I am so sorry! I hope she is doing better. Are they trying to cut her meds down a little bit each day? I had a rough night of sleep, too. I can't blame Lupin though. I must blame my dh. I will be a very long day for both of us. It is my first day back to work. I had to take last week off because of the concussion. I will see how it goes today. I still get a little woozy when I move around too much. The cut is healing nicely, though. I hope your day is better than your night! emoticon
