Another day

This is from her mom:

Last night was rough with Georgie. About 10pm I found her sitting up in her crate looking wierd. So I pulled her out and her belly was swollen & tender & she was shivering. We took her outside for a short walk & she had a poop (other dog owners can forgive my graphicness here, can't you?) Then her dinner came up partially undigested. Her stomach then was a lot smaller and nontender. But then for the rest of the night she would lay down for a while, then sit up & breathe hard (like from discomfort, I could hear her lung & bowel sounds were ok), then lay down. I stayed right next to her all night. About 4:30am she seemed to calm down so we finally fell asleep with me next to her. At 8 am everyone else had been up for a while, so I took care of the rest of the family. Then Georgie and I went to bed. She wasn't eating or drinking at that time but she was resting comfortably.

We woke up about 3:30 this afternoon & she took a few laps of water, got up and walked outside. Since it was almost 24 hrs since she ate I gave her 2 tbsp of chicken and rice which she gobbled down. She did ok with it. She just got a little more now at 5:30. So we'll see how she is tonight.

We think she's getting a partial bowel obstruction probably from the adhesions. If that's true we may have some episodes like this occ. They don't want to do surgery if not absolutely necessary. She'd just form more adhesions! I'm waiting to see how she is today before taking her back to the vet.

I'm off until Tuesday so I'll be with her every minute. I'll write updates as anything changes. Thank you all for your prayers. They really help!

Nancy, Georgie's mom

 

Mom's worried again

It's almost 4am and mom has been sitting up with me all night. I'm having some terrible stomach problems tonight. I'm having a little bit of distention, discomfort, and dinner came up. She's hoping it will pass soon and that it's not pancreatitis or a bowel obstruction. I'd been doing so well until tonight. Guess I won't be getting any breakfast again. I hope I don't have to go to the vets again.

Don't cry mommy, it's not my time yet. I know this makes you think about and miss Annie again and you worry I'm going to go to be with her. I don't think so. You know I'm a tough little dog. And I know you take good care of me and love me!

Georgie

Today we finally got the cozy cave bed that mom ordered for Christmas. It was backordered, and then when they shipped we received a dart board by mistake!!! Since we don't have opposable thumbs, we thought we'd return it for the bed. Well, I tried the bed but I jumped off when mom brought the top over me. When I got off, Winston jumped inside. He liked it a LOT!!! So he settled in for a while. When he got out, Finnegan got on it. But he didn't like the top at all, so Winston got back inside. He's been in there all night!!! Mom thinks it's great because maybe he won't need to sleep in the bed any more! For such a little guy he sure takes up a lot of room. Anyway, I guess he's going to claim this one. If I show any interest in it, mom will get another for me since I get cold at night now. It's big enough for 2 of us, but the boys have cooties and I won't sleep with them! Those stinky boys can sleep together for all I care.

Today was another good day. I'm eating some kibble with my chicken & rice now. All seems to be well with my tummy. Actually my appetite has increased, but so has my activity. Had a pretty good long walk today. The weather was almost 60 degrees so it was good to be outside of the yard catching up on my peemail. All is good in the world.

Wow - I was chosen for one of the diary picks of the day!!!!

Mom was SO excited when she told me my diary was one of the picks for the day. We LOVE dogster and it's such an honor! We've always thought that the dogster community has been a great place for making friends and giving whatever we can to other pups & their parents. It's really nice when you get some recognition for it. Thanks everyone!!!!

We added this to the Schnauzers Rule Year in Review, and this is what our family thinks about dogster:

“No matter what, we are always here for each other. To celebrate accomplishments & milestones, to welcome our new pups, to problem solve issues, to share a laugh, to support one another through illness, to grieve when one of us crosses the Rainbow Bridge. No competition, no judgment. Just here.”

Well, I've just recovered from an illness and just returned from the groomers. I guess I should go get ready for my camera shoot....BOL!!! Just kidding.

love,
Georgie

Today was a better day...

I'm feeling better today. I woke up really hungry and full of energy! I still wasn't freely drinking water, so mom asked for suggestions from our SR group. Maddie's mom suggested bottled water. So mom tried it before she went to work and I lapped 4 times - it made her really happy. When Paula, our dog walker, came over today she had to give me water through the eye dropper again. But in the afternoon when dad was home, he saw me drinking again. Mom keeps checking my gums to make sure I'm not dehydrated. And I passed tonight. I have 2 more days of medicine so hopefully everything will straighten out with the poops too.

My mom forgot to mention that on my ultrasound they saw adhesions in my bowel which occur after inflammation, like I had last October. They are not a problem unless you get an adhesion that blocks the bowel, which I don't have. So nothing to worry about right now. My mid section is always going to be a little larger due to it. So that explains why I look like I ate those extra cookies - BOL!!!

Mom is still following me around checking on me all of the time. I just consider it extra belly rubs. And getting picked up and carried around a lot is pretty nice. It's ok mom, you can relax now!

Our Schnauzers Rule group and Annie's Rainbow Bridge Angel admin group have been really supportive. It so nice to have my dogster pals and pawrents looking out for me and mom!

Not feeling well again...

Two days ago I stopped eating about 1/4 way through dinner. Mom tried just chicken & I didn't want it, or a treat. She knew there was something wrong because I usually love my dinner. When I went on my walk, I had diarrhea. Then I was in & out all night long - fortunately we have a doggie door. My belly is not painful like before. Mom thought she'd try a little rice & chicken the next morning and if I don't eat, I'd have to go into the vet.

Well, I didn't eat or drink and had really severe diarrhea, so mom took me into emergency. My usual vets weren't there, but I saw Dr. Arnold. I saw her once before and she's really nice. I had blood tests which were normal and an abdominal ultrasound. My entire small and large bowel are inflamed but no fluid leaking into the abdomen this time. This time the pancreas is also enlarged. They also saw some adhesions from the inflammation in my small bowel from last October's illness - right now nothing to do about that. They call it enterocolitis vs some chronic form of pancreatitis. So back on pepcid & metronidazole again. I also had fluids subQ today. If I get worse they'll want to hospitalize me. We'll just have to wait. Mom was scared.

So when I got home I got my medicine and was starving by dinnertime!!! So mom gave me a little rice & chicken. It tasted so good. Then I went to sleep. Mom took me outside before we all went to bed at night. No diarrhea which is a good sign.

This morning I was hungry again! So mom gave me 2 small meals today and I tolerated them pretty well. I'm still not drinking fluids so mom is adding it to my food. Dr. Arnold called this morning and told mom how to check for dehydration - and I didn't have it!!! This afternoon I walked up and down the street and had a little bit of diarrhea but not like yesterday. So mom gave me my chicken & rice dinner and I loved it!!!

We'll see how it goes tonight and tomorrow!

New Years Resolution

I entered the Schnauzers Rule New Years Resolution contest. I'm wearing a tight tee shirt that says I ate Santa's Cookies. I resolve not to eat extra treats. But mom has me on such a stricter diet than ever now, I never even get extra treats. And I sure didn't eat his cookies. Someone commented that it looks like I did!!!! OMD, I do look chubby in the photo. Someone else said I was a Schnausage!!! I'm 13in tall and weigh 13 lbs. I guess I'm just a tubby short girl. But I do have my longer winter cut and the tee shirt is small. oh no, now I'm worried I'm losing my girlish figure in my later years. Sigh, I remember the days....

Mom, you need to quit work and take me on 3 walks a day. Twice isn't cutting it!

Georgie

 

Happy New Year!
