We have received so much TLC from everyone, that we know how blessed we really are by having you as our extended family.
From receiving a beautiful gift, phone calls, prayers, Instagram messages, personal e-mails, text messages, POTP and so much more we thank you ALL from the bottom of our pea pickin' hearts.
Lily said "Just had to show you my way too cool umbrella from my best boy Newby and
his family for when I'm ready to walk the neighborhood again."
There has not been much change in Lily since she's started the med's last week. Though her hind end is no longer shaking, she is still not going up or down her ramps, not sprinting to the kitchen for food or treats and not playing with Muffin. (And we know that she shouldn't be doing all of that with possible back problems.) But sometimes it's hard to keep a good dog down as they say.
We thought we'd see little changes in her by now. The only drastic change is she's providing us with stinky gasses that can clear a room in 87 seconds or less. Even she questions where it comes from! Hey, you can't blame ME!
Tomorrow Lily will see the specialist at 10am. I have no problems leaving her on the med's if that is what he tells us to do. But because she had the cervical rupture in 2011, Rolf and I both feel we need to talk to the specialist. That will give us peace of mind. I will also talk to him about acupuncture and Laser Light Therapy and get his opinion on those. Many people have recommended that to us. We are also members of Dodgers List. It's an excellent site and the place to go if your dog has back problems.
We are praying that she's just sore from ramming into the window and nothing more. That would be the best news possible.
Hopefully we've fixed the door problem by putting on some window clings.
In case you are wondering, the sliding door is inside the house. Mom and Dad remodeled the house years ago and turned the screened in patio into a larger living room and a TV parlor. The door separates the living area from the master bedroom & parlor. We always close this area off to the dog's when we are out of the house. That way they can't jump on and off the recliner that is pretty high off the ground. When the accident happened, Rolf closed the door and was just getting ready to pull the curtain closed when Lily ran into the glass. Let's hope it never happens again and that window clings help prevent it.
Today Grandpa Bob and I picked up a new doggie bed for Lily while we were at the pet store buying more Pill Pockets. She likes to be by her Daddy and I while we're on our computers. So from what I see so far, Grandpa Bob and I did good!
Right now she is fast asleep in her new bed. Perhaps she is having sweet dreams of Newby and Marley.
Hey Nola do you see who is in bed with Lily? It's the Purple Monkey that you and your pack sent her for Christmas! Don't tell her I told you, but that's her new "woobie."
I promise to let you know how we make out tomorrow. Please continue to keep your fingers crossed for our sweet Lovable Lily.
p.s. I'm sorry that we're not able to comment on many of your blog postings these days or join in too many of the fun activities, but keeping Lily quiet and comfortable is my main priority these days which I know you understand. Unfortunately (and shame on me) she is NOT a "crate dog."
