Goin’ down


Yeppers, you heard me correctly. So far today we had beef liver, chicken liver, 3.5 cups of kibble, a little ice cream AND he stood at the table and begged for some of my freshly grilled hamburger. Actually, he’s been eating pretty well on his own all week, we’ve only had to do a few tube feedings to supplement the calories. Really good news for him and us.

The begging was the first time ever. But he ate… on his own. I’m not a huge fan of dogs begging at the table, but to say we were pretty excited tonight is an understatement.

When we saw the specialist last week, she changed his prednisone to 30 mg/day and put him on Imuran. She said the Imuran took about 2 weeks to kick in and be effective, today marks 10 days.

Such good news, hopefully this means no surgery on the horizon. We go back Wednesday to see what is next, but so far we are cautiously optimistic.

I can’t believe I at the whole thing.
