Hello again1

We are still here, but we have had our ups and downs.  Prancer goes back and forth from eating and not eating, partly because I think her teeth hurt.  She has not had her teeth cleaned considering her kidney condition. the vet and I did not think at this juncture it would be worth the strain on her kidneys.  I wonder now if we should have done such.  The vet thinks she might have infections in her gums, however, in addition her blood work is not very good.  We went away for a week and by the first day we were gone she was at the vet with my aunt and schedule for 3 days of IV fluids.  Since she started eating he reduced her IV fluid to 2 days.  We are scheduled to go back to the vet in the AM for blood work to see if the fluids helped.  I am being realistic, but hopeful.  Her eating has been off for a few weeks now and she sleeps a lot, today I noticed she is shedding more than ever; she typically doesn’t shed.  Unfortunately this is all too familiar, Bailey started shedding so bad days before the inevitable.  Bailey’s death is still so raw for me, I am just not sure we are ready for this.  We are just about at the year mark for her diagnosis so I know we have had borrowed time for so long, I just hope we get some more.

    Sweet, sweet Prancer, you and your human kid are so cute snuggling! I KNOW you are so well cared for and so loved, just like your Bailey!

    Glad you didn’t proceed with any toothy surgery…it can really play havoc sometimes on an older dog with issues!

    I KNOW you miss y o ur Bailey so much. Check out the Tripawd Alumni Thread…it may be a place you would want to share more memories and photos with us. We all love that boy! And Prancer too!

    Youare doing a great job withPrancer! Just take it day by day…one day at a time…and enjoy staying fully in the present with your Prancer! She likes it when you do!
