  1. 💩looks terrible again. Darn it.
  2. Justie did great with therapy-he got to do everything. Marissa, his rehab therapist, said Justice is so fun to work with becuz he is very food motivated and does anything they ask. She said when he was on the water treadmill yesterday, he kept turning a bit so he could lick her arm (she is in the water with him). He makes everyone smile while doing rehab. That's my boy!! His Internal med specialist came in to talk while we finished with Justie's acupuncture. We started an increase today with his Chlorambucil (the chemo med used for his IBD). If there isn't a noticeable improvement by Thursday he will need to start Budesonide, which we really hope to avoid. We are switching him back to his kibble over a few days. At 6AM he did have a stool that looked the same as it has been looking. I gave the increased chemo and at 10AM David said Justie'sstool was still soft but formed and had some brown in it-it has been yellow/orange. So as long as this keeps up maybe we can keep him off the Budesonide!! He is quite happy to get some kibble again-even a small amount. Thanks angels!!
  3. Still no kibble for Justie. 🙁 I know when we are in acupuncture the doc will call or go over to his IMS to see what to do abt the continued 💩 issue. He is backintherapy right now. If he isn't overly painful he will have land therapy exercises andwater treadmill along with his usual laser and acupuncture. He will be tired little boy. thanks so much 👼!
  4. Has the vet ever tried Lactulose? Please ask if that is something's mister can have. hoping u canat least call and talk with a vet.
  5. Ok I must see sweet Macy as a bunny!!!!
  6. No kibble for Justie. 🙁 💩 is partly unformed. Tmw we go to MedVet. thanks angels!
  7. 💩 looks pretty good🎉 Its a nice day so Justie and I have been outside longer then usual- no rain yet👍 Thanks angels!
  8. Justie is doing okay. His poop looks a bit better. If his stools are normal by Sunday then I can slowly start adding his kibble. I did get a text that his acupuncturist and IMSdiscussed his weight loss and how many calories for his age he needed to maintain weight on this oatmeal diet. I gave them all the info of how much oatmeal he is getting each meal, and he is actually eating more then should be required to maintain weight. Bur his IMS said to keep giving him the larger amount since he is losing. He will be weighed again Monday. Thanks angels!!
  9. What a long day. The rehab vet said Justie's back is not painful!!! His rightside of neck and right carpus (wrist) are a bit sore but not painful. The carpus may be arthritis. The rehab doc spoke with Justie's neuro and his seizure protocol will remain doubling his med for 2 days after a GM. But we are going to try it with his other seizure drug and hope it helps. She did decide not to put Justice in the water on the treadmill becuz he seemed pretty weak to her (which is why I thought he was in back pain). But he did all the land exercises and she said he really focuses while doing them. Everyone is just in love with him, and have been since he has been going back to rehab for the past 1 1/2 years-but now doing so many therapies in rehab he is there longer and everyone is enjoying his personality.Today I saw his acupuncturist vet taking Justie for a walk outside before his session. She loves that little boy and said she just likes having him with her as much as possible so she wanted to be the one to take him outside. He really loves her too. Justie is napping-he had quite a busy day even without the water treadmill. Thanks angels!!!
  10. Poop is improving! Tmw we have a big day at MedVet. Justie will see the rehab doctor who will check his pain level and also talk to justie's neuro. I am hoping his pain has lessened, but worried it hasn't. gorgeous day today in the 50's. But a cold front is coming this eve so high in 30's tmw. Brrrr thanks angels!
  11. The IMS wants to keep Justie on an Oatmeal/potato diet and to call on Wednesday with update. He thinks it's the doubledKeppra he had last Thursday/Friday and this Saturday/Sunday. I hope that's not true becuz that is his seizure protocol-double his Keppra for 2 days after a grand mal. Thankfully he is eating oatmeal just fine. Thanks angels!!
  12. Justie still is having soft with absolutely no form stool.I have a call into Justie's Internal Med specialist. I am hoping sooo much that Justie won't need to go on that nasty "B" word...Budesonide. As some of u may remember it causes Iatrogenic Cushings after he is on it a short time, and then we have to deal with those symptoms-urinating every 1-2 hours (24/7), a buddha belly,hair thinning and lack of sleep causes seizures. But maybe he will do a mouse dose just to get some inflammation down. He has been pacing a lot, but finally has been sleeping for an hour. Back to cleaning my room. UGH! Thanks so very much angels!!
  13. I can't believe that now his IBD is flaring. He has had some loose 💩 all week and has been on Imodium but now it's worse. Will call IMS tmw. I took off food and now he is just getting oatmeal for his meals. He is begging for more food right now so his appetite is good👍 Thanks angels!!
  14. Its true Kay, those images will never leave my heart...but it is kind of sad to not have a tangible reminder. But I have been holding Justie and doing food puzzles and making more memories.Just praying Justie gets back to being pain free. hugs!
