Ladies and Germs…Four Months!

Four months! Time has absolutely FLOWN by. I had to double check the calendar. Really, not much new to report–he continues to do well. We’re trying to cut down his meds, and moved to 5 mg of pred daily, and then every other day…he was fine with the 5/daily; 5 every other…he seems to have a decreasing appetite. So it may be we DO need the pred, even with the acupuncture.

We continue to go weekly to visit Sam’s girlfriend #456, Dr. Albright, for acupuncture. She is wonderful, and Sam seems to enjoy their sessions (she says he’s her easiest patient!). And even though we are not doing formal PT now, John and Siera (the PT team) try and stop in when we are there, just to say hi.

We didn’t win the Senior Dog contest on FB we were in…but we did get second (thank you, all!)–and I got an e-mail from the people at Sidewalk Dog–they loved Sam and his story so much, they wanted to give him a special “shout out” on their FB page. So he got a mad props post day, just b/c :-)

He continues to be the odd duck he always has been–and continues to win people over along the way. As we all know, things can change in an instant, but for right now, he is as upbeat and “frisky” (<–always a relative term with the Philodendron With Fur) as he has been in 18+ months. So yay for four months!
