Wednesday update

Here is a note from Mama Lamb about Miss Snickers:


"Not much new today. Her fever did go down though. She didn't get any sleep last night or this morning. She had the panting horrible & the bloody mucous thing running out of the nose, which makes her breathing really noisy. (even kept Butchy awake, hehehe)
Swelling is still the same as the last 2 days, one side is like quarter size, other is between dime & nickel size. Sure wish it would go down further. She still eats very slow, so I'm still wetting her kibble along with all of the soft food we're giving her. Don't think she has gained anymore weight back yet. I was telling Mumsie today, Snickers will get a few spirts where she acts pretty good. But then she is tired again. Just think she needs some good sleep. She is now on the prednisone only every other day, so we're hoping the panting will soon start going away. Only got her to walk half way around the land this morning. Now we have rain, so I know I won't get her to walk much. "

Ahh, that predisone is tough stuff. Our wire fox terrier Keddy was on it for back pain and it made her pee all the time. But if she was off it, she'd have seizures with awful back pain. Sure hope Snickers and her family can get a good night's sleep. No barking tonight, we'll just whisper at the Dog Star instead so we don't wake anyone up.

Gussie my pal, how are you doing?

Your pal,

Petey

Poor snickers, not being able to breathe is so scary. Prayers continue of course...and we too hope they all get some sleep.

We wonder if it would work if we try to woo 'em all to sleep. We know they are running on empty in the rest department. We'll go to bed tonight hoping we find out they all rested well through the night. That's gotta help. We know Snickers can do this ... battle this mystery monster. It's gonna be a long haul, but we're here for her (and her family). All the way.

Love,
Fergi and Jake and family

Thanks for the pupdate. It's weird, my sibe had a similar problem with similar symptoms but no lymph node inflamation. she had inflamation in her joints. do you think it could be a bacterial infection of some sort? I'm sure hoping snickers gets better soon to tell us all...
