Thanksgiving was a great time. Mom & dad & Nisha & I drove up to Oregon to see my uncles & aunts & dog cousins. We rented a house at the beach. It was pretty cold outside and it rained some, but we were all warm in our cozy house. Most days people came over to our house, so we didn't have to go out very much. Dad even cooked the turkey! I did get to go on my favorite walk on the harbor. There are so many smells, and lots of people. I always run up to all of the groups so they can tell me how cute I am in my new sweater and they can pet me!!! It works every time.
Nisha was pretty good with all of the changes and people. On the way home I let her sleep in my bed with me. I guess she's ok!
This week I haven't felt very well. I had a couple episodes of vomiting in the middle of the night. Back to rice & cottage cheese or chicken. Then 3 days ago I couldn't pick up my food. Mom hand fed me, and I couldn't work my tongue to get the food to my back teeth. So mom gave me canned food and that worked really well. By today I can pick up my food & eat alright.
Last night when mom picked me up to go for my bedtime potty, my hip seemed to be hurting. This morning when I woke up, I really cried & whimpered when mom picked me up. Also, I was walking really slow. So I went to see Dr. Porte. Of course he drew some blood, started me on antibiotics and tomorrow I start metacam for arthritis. It doesn't look like I've had a stroke or any neurological problems - whew! I sure hope this works! And I hope my blood tests are good. Mom gets so worried because of my age. But it's so cold out, so my arthritis is definately acting up.
So life goes on, and we'll see what tomorrow brings.
Praying your blood test are good. My Mommy used Nupro, an all natural supplement for my arthritis and it worked great! I really loved how it made a yummy beef gravy when mixed in my food with a little bit of water. It made a difference in my aches and pains within two weeks! I hope you feel better very soon.
