    Hey guys went to the vet today I'm 79 pounds now and doing well, the vet has me chewing Ora Vet once daily, it is the new breath chew for dog with Dential problems, works great rates great cleans plaque, daddy helps with spelling, and he says it smells like chocolate. Going back to vet net month on the 2nd and as for dad the doctor , his, said they will not operate on his Achilles Tendon because of his health. So daddy has to deal with it knot being right and will go thru physical therapy for his Tendon and cardiovascular rehab. When he completes them both he will the retest to get on the kidney transplant list. Daddy has been on dialysis for almost 4 years and will get that time accredited to him, it is a 4 to 5 year waiting period for a transplant as long as you are healthy enough , the doctors have final say. We were out in the rain today for 4 hours and I got we and daddy did too but it was fun, I had on my red boots my auntie got me and my coat , daddy was dressed for the wet weather too but it rained so hardyeah we took public transportation I'm a service dog and can go where daddy can. So that is the update to date, time for dinner I already had a bath had to be cleaned from being out in the rain. Daddy's gonna do laundry and wash and dry my coat. We will talk to you later, love all imom cousins, have a great nite take care and hope you all feel good. The Prince of Union Square Isley and his human. Look at me...

    Justie had GM's again during the night. His neuro isn't too concerned becuz he thinks it is secondary to his UTI and once he feels better the clusters will subside. He doesn't have any back pain, but has neck pain so one of his meds has been increased. He will start back to full rehab on Monday. Thanks angels!!!

    Justie is having a really good day. The vertigo has lessened. Hopefully he is on the road to recovery from the vestibular syndrome🙏 Thanks so much angels!!

    Jacki emailed me and said she isn't able to fix the issues with the forum, but she sent a ticket to support and hopefully at some point they can fix it. I worry that many angels won't want to keep taking the time to try and get into the forum, and becuz they can't see posts, or even reply to posts then they will leave this forum... Justie is doing pretty well. Thankfully the 3 grand mals that ended 18 hours ago have not set his vertigo back like it did a week ago. Thanks ever so much angels!

    I will email IMOM this week and let them know that there are some issues with the forum. The weird thing is that it will let me post even when it keeps asking me to sign in. I scroll down and just click on the last person who posted on the boyz thread (for me it happens to keep showing Kay posted that 19 hours earlier when in fact it was from 4/4) and it goes to the most recent post (which today happens to be Kay)! Just weird that sign in prompt keeps showing up, but it obviously can be disregarded. Justie had a really good day, but abt 5PM he started circling like crazy and being off balance. He is sleeping now-which is what his brain needs. Not sure if this is from the cognitive dysfunction or vestibular syndrome-or a combo of both. I'm going to get some video for the neuro appt on Thursday, Thanks so much Sue and Kay and all the angels!!

    No more GM's since yesterday at 3AM!!!! I think the seizures did set him back just a little with the vestibular syndrome, but he is making up some ground today. It's a beautiful, sunny and breezy 75 degree day!! I wish Justie could be out in it more, but after a short time his balance gets worse becuz he is tired. It will get better though. Forecasters are saying that this week shows no snow, but they won't commit that the snow is over yet. We have had snow in May--I hope not this year!! Thanks angels!!

    Justie is having a really good day. His poop looks good; his vertigo isn't any where near as bad as Friday and Saturday; urgency and frequency have lessened dramatically and he is getting some good rest. His neuro said that being sick or in pain could cause the vertigo to be worse, and since the antibiotic has made a difference Justie must have had a UTI, and now that it is improving -his vertigo that was so bad Friday and Saturday has lessened.That's the hope anyway! It's a quiet day here and we have needed that! Hope everyone is having a nice holiday weekend. Thanks so much angels!

    Justies IMS called in an antibiotic for Justice in case he has a UTI. His U/A last Monday looked good but now he is having frequency and urgency. He is exhausted and so am I. I hope by tmw he will be feeling much better!! His 💩 is still improving🎉 Thanks so much 😇 's!

    Today is one of the dips in the arc the neuro talked abt. It's a more vertigo/circling kind of day...but hopefully later today or tmw he will be climbing more toward getting better. It is gorgeous today with temp of 72!! Carol was going to take Justice out on a leash in the big yard, but I don't know how he will do. The weekend will be near 80 but rainy, so this would be a perfect day for him to be outside, darn vertigo. Thanks so much angels!!

    Justie has good news from his neuro. His vestibular syndrome is resolving more quickly then the neuro thought it would. It is abt 85% resolved. Still falls over at times, and still on a leash for awhile. The neuro said he will have good days and not so great days, but as long as he keeps making a positive trend we are good. Great news-no pain. In fact he took him off the Tramadol and also the Meclizine. He will check Justie again in 2 weeks. Justie may have fiber responsive colitis. Nothing has helped until we added Metamucil Tuesday eve. We don't know if it's a fluke, so I text the IMS Fri night or Saturday morning, if he gets worse again, or no better, his chemo med used for refractive IBD will be increased again. After seeing the neurologist Justie came out with a cute bandana that says "Epilepsy Warrior"...truer words were never spoken. I'll get a pic of it. Justie's seizure med arrived yesterday. Thank u so very much for making sure my Justice is safe. I am so grateful.

    Justie slept a little better last night. He has been out on several walks in the small yard (still can't let him have freedom from the leash) and he got some sunshine. We go to MedVet tmw to see his internal med specialist and neurologist. Thanks so very much angels!

    Justie was doing well this morning, but when I got back from a doc appt he was way off balance again and circling. Carol said he hasn't slept all day, so I am hoping he is just tired. I know my balance is worse when I am tired. He hasn't been in the crate all day-just on a leash that is sometimes held and other times he just drags it. I have a feeling after today he is not going to appreciate being in the crate, and I am sure he will make his negative feelings known by doing what schnauzers do best...barking! Thanks angels!!

    I was up every 1-2 hours with Justice during the night. His internal med specialist took a quick look at Justie while Justie was there for laser and acupuncture ,(our full appt is Thursday) and decided to stop the Budesonide (it's making him drink and pee the every 1-2 hours). He also is stopping the Imodium and adding Lomotil. They drew labs and got a stool specimen. I hope all of this will get a handle on his not sleeping. Carol drove us down becuz of my lack of sleep. I was lucky she didn't have other plans. It is simply gorgeous here- 77 degrees with a nice breeze. Justice likes to just stand outside with the breeze blowing his beard. My sweet little boy. Thanks so much angels!!

    Justie started barking at 5:30AM. <sigh> He is blissfully quiet right now. I so wish I could just open the door and let him run-but he is nowhere close to freedom from the leash. It's sad becuz today is gorgeous with temps in the low 70's and he would love hanging around outside. Of course he is definitely getting some time outside every 1-2 hours, but we still have to hold the leash very taut so he doesn't fall over. At least now he is pretty good with just standing, so we let him be out as long as he wants. even if it's just to stand. His head jerking and bobbing has lessened too. Today is day 8 and it's the first day I could put his Optimmune into his eyes, for his dry eyes. His head moved too much before that and I feared I would scratch his cornea if I tried the eye medication. So today Carol held his head and I got his eyes cleaned up and added the ointment. I took a wet washcloth and washed his face as best I could and Carol helped comb his beard which was a mess. He looks much better with just getting his beard combed and eye gunk cleaned off. It's amazing that we couldn't even begin to do those things this week becuz u couldn't hold his head still. Tmw we go to MedVet for laser and acupuncture. The neuro wants him to go becuz it may help. I sure hope so. We are forecast to have temps in the upper 70's tmw!! Thanks angels!!

I'm doing great thanks to imom, daddy is now healing g up from yup a chilies Tendon surgery, he had to have it so far so good my neighbors have been taking me out and that works for me the old human ain't what he used to be.
