Today was a great day!
Since having my treatments for tick borne Babesia, I have gained 10 pounds!!! I am so much stronger now and am almost back to my old self. My mom is sooo happy and she brushes me all the time to get my coat looking better. It grew very dull when I was sick. She says it's amazing how much I've changed since my treatment and always tells me that I am getting stronger every day. I can get up much more easily but the doctor says the muscles in my back legs were damaged by the Babesia organism so it will take some time before I build my muscles up again.
So each day I play in the back yard with my pack for just a little while and then my mom puts them in and she and I play ball for a little while and then I go in to rest so I don't over-stress my muscles. It's kind of frustrating because I really want to play but I know I have to be careful. I don't even want to feel sick again.
I really want everyone to know that if you have ever been bitten by a tick to get checked for any diseases that you might have gotten from them. The longer you wait, the more damage it does to your body and the harder it is to recover.
This has been a really tough 5 months but I finally feel much better, just in time for the holidays! I have a feeling that Santa is going to give me something really special for being such a good boy all year!
My mom says she's going to post some new photos of me soon so everyone can see how much better I've gotten. "Speak" to you later! Woof!!
