sun puddle

over the weekend we had a very nice sun puddle in our living room so i put bailey's bed right smack in the middle of it. when i showed her, she stumbled into her bed and went right to sleep.

crumby

how did bailey get such a crumby nose?


that's what happens when she eats cookies. she doesn't know how to lick them off so they just stay there. BOL

update

bailey's blood test came back and her numbers were still a little elevated. normal should be 200, hers were 227. not too far off. doc felt they were in a safe enough range to stop her treatment. that was wednesday. she's been ok since then. her mornings start out pretty slow but then she perks up throughout the day. she can get around on her own, for the most part. i did have her on leash, even in the house, because she would fall over or crash into things. that has stopped and she can pretty much walk on her own now. she doesn't have full access to our house though. she is contained to whatever room i am in. better to be safe than sorry.

feather in her cap

this pic showed up in my facebook memories a couple of days ago. it was from a post in march of 2017. i have no idea what bird that feather came from but it was a beauty. i found it in a parking lot and had to bring it home.

3rd treatment

bailey had another treatment for her pancreatitis yesterday and they took more blood to see how her body is reacting to the treatments. today she will only get subcutaneous fluids. this'll be a much shorter visit. the full treatment takes about an hour but fluids only take about a minute to administer. again, she slept all the way home. our vet is 30 miles away, so that was a pretty good nap.

thank you for all of your prayers and healing vibes. we are grateful for each and every one.

it's back

bailey has been a bit under the weather lately and we've been seeing our vet on a weekly basis. he suspected that her pancreatitis has returned, so friday he took some blood to see what turned up. (she had quite the battle with pancreatitis, and beat it, almost exactly a year ago.) yesterday we got the results and it was confirmed, again. friday she had her first treatment, saturday and sunday she received fluids and first thing yesterday morning she had her second treatment. poor baby, it takes so much out of her. he inserts a catheter into her tummy and injects the medication directly into her pancreas. (i'm pretty sure that's what he said.)


she was so tired from the procedure, she slept all the way home. she was out of it most of the day and didn't perk up until around 4:00. she ate a little (very little) then went back to sleep. i had to wake her to take her medications then she went back to sleep. today we go back to the vet. i think he's gonna take more blood to see if there's any improvement. (her last battle with pancreatitis took 3 weeks of daily visits to bring her back.) doc had said it wasn't as bad as last year and that she should only need few treatments because we caught it early. i pray he is right. please keep her in your thoughts as she, once again, battles pancreatitis.

car seat no-no

bailey is demonstrating on how NOT to sit in a car seat. we had just visited our vet (where they took blood to run some tests. more on that later.) and bailey was still a little wound up. after we sat in the car for a few minutes, she calmed down and i was able to drive home, with her properly seated in her car seat.

another update

we had another visit to the vet friday and this is how bailey sat in her car seat on our way home. she was so pooped. but comfy? i dunno. BOL


doc looked in her eyes and said she's not completely blind but her vision is definitely impaired. he said to continue with her eye drops to reduce her eye pressure. he also said to increase the dosage to 3 times a day.

shopping #tbt

this picture was taken in march of 2020, just before we were quarantined because of covid.  bailey loved to go out to all the dog-friendly stores. now the only place she goes is to the doctor. definitely not as fun as shopping.

update

bailey is doing better. her eye has improved a little with the eye drops doc gave her. she still walks into things here and there but then she does walk with her nose to the ground. maybe if she'd hold her head up as she walks she could see things before bumping into them! i'm always telling her to lift her head up but she doesn't listen. what's a mother to do? BOL 


on our follow-up vet visit, doc gave her 2 more prescriptions and wants to see her again friday.
