It looks like I will for sure be able to get off prednisone completely. We are slowly lowering my dosage and I am down to 7.5mg per day and have had no ill effects as we reduced the dosage.
I am moving very well now. Mom thinks I am back to normal factoring in that I am 6 months older now than when this all started.
And, just yesterday, we got my elbow pads in the mail! One of the most scary things that happened recently was when I almost died from an infection in my leg from an elbow sore. Antibiotics got me through that but my elbows continue to be irritated from the way I lay down, where I lay down and how much time I spend doing that now that I am an old boy. So these new "Dogleggs" should prevent that from ever happening again.
I will be going to see my vet, Dr. Nicol, in two weeks to investigate the strange sores that are appearing on my body.
But I feel really good and have made an almost complete recovery from where I was at in April. I continue to take digestive enzymes with my food and my poops are nice and normal.
