Maggie Girl

My Miss Maggie has enjoyed several meals today - it takes a lot to put her off her food, she even managed to remove a piece of chocolate from my plate, as I chatted on the phone. This afternoon she managed to act like she was fine, for the hour I tutored. I grabbed the camera to take a positive pic, for the blog, and this is the best she can do.

Last night I took her out to the loo about 10pm and the effects of the nasty sedative hit at the bottom of my stairs, on the wet lawn, as the rain fell. So, yes, there I was carrying all 36kg up 14 wet steps! Realising that trips outside were not very convenient for Mummy she wet the bed, through night - her first indoor wet one since she was 6 weeks old. Poor darling, she is so embarrassed she can't even look at her bed drying in front of the fire, and won't make eye contact in the laundry, where her bedding is being dealt with.

That said, the sedative appears to have worn off, at last, and the steroids seem to be acting on the pain as she has not whimpered this afternoon. Fingers crossed for our results tomorrow.

Oh Julie, Honey, I understand how difficult this is. I just went through a similar situation with my baby boy (my 13-year-old). And I have a 15.5 year old too so as the years go by, it gets tougher and tougher. My thoughts are with you and yours. This is the sweetest photo. Hugs to you and your sweet Bubby Girl.

Just popped in to see if you had any news on your baby girl.
Have been thinking about you and Maggie all day.
Much, much love
Dotee xoxo

I just rang the vet from work. Good news. No really scary things in the blood. Looks like some doggy diabetes - but I should be able to control it with her food - I think more smaller meals. Some arthritis medication too. And, I am to keep a food and water diary for a while.

Thank you all so much for sharing the journey over the last few days.
Big hugs and licks. Julie and Maggie.

Thanks so much for the update Julie. Yours was the first blog I checked when I got home from work.

Very good news that there were no scary results in her blood work. You must be very relieved!

I am sure she will be feeling much more like her doggy self very soon.

Hugs from me and relieved meows from the moggies xoxoxo
