It's Pancreatitis

Yesterday Mom got the news from Dr. K - the second blood test confirmed that I do have pancreatitis (my amylase is more than 2.5 times normal). We're hoping that diet and Pepsid can get me as close to normal as possible. Mom's happy cuz I'm eating more and not getting sick after I eat. I wish she would just realize that I'm getting older - I am 12 after all!!! This is just a little thing that I'll have to adjust to. Heck I've learned to live with one eye and got through my TPLO surgery just fine didn't I????

Well, Mom and I went to see Dr. K yesterday. I hadn't been eating and was having a hard time keeping food in my stomach. I also had really bad problems with really runny poop. Mom and I know that I'm getting older, but didn't think anything of it. After all the tests were run it seems that part of me is starting to "go bad". Dr. K thinks I have something called pancreatitis. We're going to do some more tests and he has me on some medicine and a special diet right now to see if that helps. Problem is that I still don't want to eat. Mom's kinda worried right now cuz I'm her guy. She's been soooooo happy lately cuz of her new job and the fact that she found a place to live after we move to West Virginia. I feel bad that I"m making her sad. I'm sure that given a little bit more time I'll be good as new for her.


I' Gonna Be Moving

I've been waiting to post for a while now, but since its official and people at Mom's work already know - I'm letting all my dogster buddies know that Kea & I are going to be moving. Mom's got a new job in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and she's moving in June. Hopefully she'll find a house and we'll move with her. If not we'll be staying at our house here in San Antonio with a friend of Mom's who has agreed to stay in the house until it sells. With all the "stuff" that was going on - interviews, etc - Mom didn't have the time to keep up with our diaries. She's still struggling since she now has some stuff she calls transition and cross training to work on, but maybe, just maybe we'll be more active. For sure by mid-February we'll be back on regularly.




Home at last!!!!

Well I've been home for over a week now. Animal House was o.k. but being home with Mom is the best!!!! She even stayed home with me and Kea and didn't go out at all for four whole days. Of course that meant she didn't do any school work or get on the computer to send out rosettes or add new diary entries for us either. Course I'm happy she spent so much time with us that I really don't mind. She'll just have to catch up later on!!!!


No Play Time For Me

Well Kea & I are vacationing at Animal House while Mom is in Florida. We couldn't go cuz there is another dog in residence that isn't very nice to other dogs and could teach Kea bad habits. Mom wanted both Kea and I to have some play time with other dogs but I just wasn't up for it. I wanted to spend my vacation without being bothered, it is my vacation after all. So I get to have some yard time all to myself in my own little area. Kea can be crazy and play with all the other pups, I just want to chill on my own. That's exactly the type of vacation that I want!!!!


My Vacation

Oh boy, I'm on a vacation. I'm at a new place called Animal House. I've got my own space and they put a treat on my bed at night. Mom has to go visiting for Christmas and I can't go with her this time so Kea and I are staying here. The people are all really nice and I'm getting evaluated for "play time". I'm not sure what to make of all the other pups here, but I do know that I'm really liking all the attention that I'm getting. I even have my own room and don't have to share with Kea!!!!! The only thing that would make it better is if Mom was here with me.


Happy Times

Boy I can't believe I've finally gotten Mom to write a diary entry for me. She's been sooooo busy that she isn't sleeping well and I'm not getting quality Dogster time. Any way, over the Thanksgiving break Mom spent FOUR WHOLE DAYS with me and Kea. It was absolutely wonderful. We went for walks every day and got to go for a couple of rides to the parks. We got to sleep in and mom even gave us some ice cream and special snacks. I can't wait until she's off longer for the Christmas break.


More Walks!!!!!

Boy oh boy. I just can't believe how lucky we are. Mom is taking us for long walks almost every day!! Yesterday we went out even before Mom had her breakfast and went around the neighborhood in a direction we hadn't gone for a while. Kea is even starting to be better on her leash and I'm getting kinda bad. Mom isn't correcting me too much cuz of my knee surgery. I guess that I can get away with more now that ever before. Wonder when that will come to an end????


Officially Mending

Yesterday Mom took me to see my surgeon for my 6 week check up. When she came to pick me up later in the day we got the good news that I'm doing just great (for a senior citizen). I'm still gonna have to be on restricted activity for another 4 weeks, but I should be good to go!!!!!!!!!! Now I just need to keep Mom convinced that all the walking is doing some good.


Set Back???

I'm not sure but I may have suffered a set back in my recovery. A couple of days ago Kea "ran me over" cuz she was so excited to get outside. I'm limping a little bit more now and Mom's a little bit concerned. I go back on the October 20th for a recheck to see I'm healing. I just hope that I'm o.k. (so does Mom for that matter). If it is Kea's "fault" I won't blame her cuz I know she really didn't mean it.
