Back from the U of M

Well, talk about scary.....the roads are still horrible from the foot of snow we got over the weekend making for a scary trip to and from the hospital. We are now back safe and sound

Here's what's going on. They took a chest x-ray and it shows the lungs looking pretty clear so it isn't CHF which is great but nobody knows why these seem to be starting again. We are adjusting my meds so I am getting more diuretics. The problem is it is seriously hurting my kidneys and their values are continuing to climb. They are now wanting to start me on a new diet as well. We're really hoping these changes will help. I am feeling pretty good even after having had the 2 syncope episodes. Now we just hope and pray the tweaking of the meds and diet will help stop the episodes and climbing kidney values.



I'm so pupular they want to see me again

Momma called the vet today because last night I had a second episode. They are concerned with two coming relatively close together so they want to see me again. I have an appointment this afternoon at the U of M at 2:00. I'm not sure what they will be doing. I seem OK right now but there has to be an underlying cause to why these are coming back. When I go there, I feel like I am walking into Cheers. Everybody knows my name! BOL

Wish me luck there isn't anything too serious going on.



Another seizure like episode today

It's been awhile since we witnessed one of Mia's seizure episodes but she had one about an hour ago. She did seem to recover fairly quickly and fortunately her respiration rate has not increased dramatically. At this point we feel pretty good that this will not put her back into congestive heart failure. Seeing this is another story though, every time it rips my heart apart. I hate to see her suffer and I desperately pray this is an isolated incident. Sending lots of love and prayers to my baby girl

The past few weeks I have continued to stay stable. This is a real blessing. So much is going on so it is nice to have a period of consistency. I am still not really eating and we don't know why but the feeding tube has prevented that from being the major issue it was in the past. Rate is even going down a bit. It has been in the low 30's.

I have been getting around great and I even play at times. I like the new bat but Mr. Spider is still my favorite. I LOVE him!! Things are going well for now. I am back to the happy snuggly girl that I had always been. I am even back to being a bit bossy. BOL!!

Thank you for helping me get through a very terrible October. It is with the prayers and love that I received that I am still here today.

I love you all!!!

Muah! Muah! (in a double kissy mood today) :)

Let's go Chicago!

Now that I am finally feeling a bit better, it is time to get back down to the business of rooting for my beloved Chicago Bears! Two consecutive losses :( but today they play at home against the Vikings and I am cheering for them to come out with the win!!

I love watching football with mom and dad, we have fun. I used to eat lots of snacks but not so much anymore. Doesn't matter, I still enjoy the game.

Kick off is in about 45 minutes!! Go Chicago

PS - Brrrrr, it's cold outside these days


Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving. Even if today is not a holiday you celebrate, it is still a great day to be thankful for all your blessings.

Today is special for me, I am grateful to be here today and the past week or so have been the best I have looked since September. It is a gift from God and a true blessing.

I ate some turkey today, probably a no no but the whole house smelled so good and I just had to have some. Everyone has a cheat day and today is mine. It is a holiday after all. So today I count my blessing and I am as grateful and one can be. Thanks for all the prayers the past 7 weeks. I think I am at a stable point right now and with luck I will remain stable for awhile longer. I can now gain weight with the feeding tube and it certainly shows by my recent improvement.


PS - Added 4 new pics and a video today :)


Cardiology pupdate

Went to the U today to see my cardiologist and walked the entire way down the halls. Several people stopped to say "Hi Mia" and comment on how cute my jean jacket was :)

Anyway, the cardiologist is quite pleased with how I looked overall. He said I looked bright and alert. The x-ray looked good with just a little haziness in the lungs that is probably a small amount of fluids. They are starting me on a second diuretic in hopes that my lungs clear and my respiratory rate will decrease a bit. Poor mom, I'm gonna need to potty every 5 minutes on two of those meds, BOL!

On the downside, my BUN continues to increase. They told momma no more hot dogs and easy on the proteins. There goes the only foods I will eat. We'll have to see how this plays out because I have no interest in dog food :(

I guess overall it went well, I am at least feeling much better this month. I'm very thankful for that!

Oh and before I forget, I gained almost 1/2 pound! I am now 8 1/2 pounds. Thank doG for the feeding tube!

Hard to pawlieve Thanksgiving is this Thursday and boy do I ever have so much to be THANKFUL for! First and foremost for all the love and prayers that have made it possible for me to be here today. God listened and has given me more precious time with my family. I am also thankful to my family for all the care and love given to me in order to help my recovery. For my dogtors and the wonderful care they have provided me so that I can be here for the holiday. Finally, for Dogster so I could share in all the ups and downs the past month has brought me.

I am beyond one thankful pup! So thank you to all my family and furiends for everything


PS - Chiquita is hanging in there but I don't know much else besides that since it is my grandma's furiend

PSS - I hear a very special gift has arrived today for my Daddy's birthday. I also hear that this very special gift has something to do with ME! I'll post when I know more. Daddy isn't home from work yet.
