Still not well but a little better

So day two and I'm still not feeling great. I didn't eat breakfast but I did eat a little at lunch. Diarrhea set in just to make matters worse, but we expected it to follow since this seems to be the same thing that happened to me last winter.

I am a bit better though and taking my meds. Still sleepy and resting a lot but my tail is curled over my back and I'm moving around better.

All in all, I guess this is a slow start to recovery. I expect to be back to normal in a couple days.

I'm resting

I was a great patient today for the vet. Although my gums were pink, temp was normal, and there was no signs of dehydration, my red blood cell count was high. They gave me Sub Q fluids, an antacid, and an antibiotic (in case diarrhea occurs).

This is the second time this has happened. Last time I had to be hospitalized but this time it seems to have been caught early enough that they hope the fluids under the skin will work just as well. Fine by me, I'm happier at home.

I refused dinner though and feel bad because I know mom made is especially for me. It was ground turkey with brown rice. It smelled great but I am still not feeling well enough to eat. I did eat a very small piece of cheese with my medicine in it but that was all this evening. Mom said she will try to see if I want to eat again later this evening. For now, I'm just laying on the bed and resting. Hopefully by morning, I'll be better and on the road to recovery.

I'm all of a sudden not feeling well. I'm off to the vet since they agreed to see me immediately. Let you know how it goes.

Ready for spring!

I'm so ready for spring and warmer weather! I spent yesterday getting a bath, hair cut, and my nails trimmed. (Not pawsonally my favorite way to spend Valentine's Day but I think I look pretty handsome) Now that I am all spruced up, I'm ready to actually enjoy a bit of time outside. I even got a new collar to go with my new look :)

Today will be in the 40's! Woo Hoo, that snow is finally melting away. It is supposed to get colder this weekend but we like to enjoy the nice days when we get them.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day yesterday. Aside from getting groomed, I did have a special chicken dinner ;)

OMG - Diary of the DAY!

Wow, these kind of things never happen to me. My sister Mia is the lucky one. I'm so excited to be diary of the day and the very best news of all is that I am FINALLY back to normal. I have a couple more days of medication but I am so happy to be feeling well. I hope I never have to stay at the hospital ever again, it was no fun.

Today is another super cold day, even at noon we are -2 degrees. My sister Mia doesn't care though, she's too excited about the football game today. She's a big Chicago Bears fan and loves Brian Urlacher. Anyway, since I was picked Diary of the Day she asked me to say "GO BEARS!".

Thanks for the wonderful opportunity to have my pic on the main page Dogster! I really appreciate it.

Feeling better

I'm feeling much better today and am eating with much enthusiasm. I just love that turkey and rice but unfortunately it isn't loving me back. Although I have my appetite back, I also have a very bad bout of diarrhea to go with it. Why can't it just ALL go away at once. Mom went back to the vet to pick up a new prescription and they have me on an antibiotic to help clean out my GI tract. They hope my new issue will be resolved within 24 hours of being on the antibiotics. Mom begged me to just let her know if I had to go and she'll RUN me out there. She doesn't want any midnight accidents :( I'll do my best mom.

Bloodwork results are in and aside from a decreased RBC count the rest of the values look fine. He will stay on fluids for the day but it looks like he'll be home this evening. The vet feels his intestinal issues probably made him feel under the weather thus not eating or drinking normally and then he felt worse so he did even less. A vicious cycle. He'll be on a bland diet for a few days and also a stomach acid reducer. This is great news, I can't wait to pick up my Teddy Bear.

Teddy is spending the day in the hospital and possibly overnight depending on the lab reports. He is dehydrated, pale, and has a slightly low temperature. He is getting bloodwork done, being put on an IV for fluids, and they are giving him medication to calm his stomach. We did get him to eat some breakfast but I could tell he still wasn't feeling well. I really hope the blood results are not bad and they have to keep him overnight. I felt terrible when they said he needed to stay. I'll update once they call with the lab results.

Going to see the Dogtor tomorrow

Mom is very worried and scheduled a 7:30AM appointment for me to see the dogtor tomorrow. Some might not worry but mom always says if Teddy, Dragon, or Chester don't eat, then there is a big pawblem. Well, tonight I not only didn't eat dinner but I also didn't even go into the kitchen while mom prepared dinner. She called me down to eat but I just walked away. After everyone else ate, we all went outside to potty. I went potty but I didn't even bark at the doggie on the other side of our fence and I love to bark at Riley. Mom immediately called to get me an appointment and I'm going in first thing in the morning. Pawlease keep good thoughts for me. Mom doesn't remember a single day since adopting me that I turned away from food.

I'm seven years old today!

Today is my official barkday and I just turned 7. It was a little over 5 years ago that my family got the call to come see me at the shelter and I am so happy they did. I now have the security of knowing I am in a family that will keep me and always love me. Besides being my birthday, my allergies are subsiding and I feel much better. I am off of the prednisone and just on Benadryl for the bad days. Life is good and getting back to normal. I can't wait to see what yummy treat I get tonight with dinner. I don't play with toys so my birthday is all about the treats! Yum!

One last cool thing about this birthday is that my paw rating finally went up to a 5!! Yay!!

Have a wonderful day pals and Happy Birthday to my twinkie bro Dizzy
