So far Tuck is doing fine-actually better then Justice.
He had his vaccination at 10:30AM, and they decided rather then have him in ICU, that they would just watch him in the neuro room. After abt an hour Mari brought him to me--and we hung around the waiting room until after 3PM. She came out every hour to take a rectal temp, becuz his temp was up a bit after the vaccination. It went right back to normal.
He did have 1 CP during the time we were there, but is sleeping now.
He also had CP's during the night-but no GM's YAY!!
Little Justice is having a rough go--he is having lots of partials tonight-jerking and twitching.
Like Marty said (THANK YOU MARTY!!!), he had 2 GM's during the night, and a CP thsi afternoon.
The neuro said all the stressors from last week has got him into a bad cycle, since stress (the rabies vacc, surgery, pain, being at the vet...) has been found to lower the seizure threshold.
So, the neuro is temporarily (only thru Sunday) increasing his Felbatol. The dose is being doubled-and we hope this stops the cycle. We are trying to keep Justice out of the hospital.
It seems like I went from absolute elation from the negative biopsy results--to a little guy who may end up in the hospital. <sigh>
When I think abt the biopsy results though, I can go staright to cloud nine!!
Well the full moon ends tonight-although they can be affected for a couple days before and after. I hope it's over now though.
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I forgot. The neuro before leaving the room said "I have to tell u that Tuck's recovery from the stroke is just AMAZING!!!!!"
He still wants to see him every 3 months (I was hoping he could be switched to every 6 months like Justice
), becuz he said we don't want to rock the boat-so he wants to keep an eye on Tuck.
Hi Laurie, you know I was going to call u, but since I hadn't checked with u to see if u were even around, I didn't call. I wish I had seen ur email, but I didn't log on this AM (Justice neededs some special mommy time after his rough night). Thanks though for being such a great support! Please tell Coot to get plenty of rest...it may take a few days, but the train will be boarded again!! hugs
Hi Joanna, oh how sweet of Brandon to be asking abt Justice. What a sweet and thoughtful child!! Justice sends wags and wiggles to Brandon!
It's weird that the neck lump turned out to be worse then the leg. Even though it was a cyst, it could have become something worse. Niki said the report said Luci got it all, but that it may recur in multiple area's--yikes. Anyway, the night she read me the biopsy report, I just kept waiting and steeling myself to hear MCT-that I honestly don't know all that she said. I will ask for a copy next week when he gets his stitches out.
I hope Mike and Gidge are doing OK. I will try to get there twm.
hugs to the 3 of u.
Hi Jacki, I kind of hated letting everyone know. But I knew I needed my IMOM family. It's OK u didn't write--I know how much u care for the boys. Just having ur thoughts (and I knew they were there) were important.
Hugs to u and the kids
Hi Debbie and Jack--yup on pins and needles is where I was too! I did post on Jack's thread that night.
I am so glad Jack is doing so well. I saw lots of dogs that were at MedVet today having radiation, and I thought so much of Jack.
I was SO happy when I read that Justice does not have cancer!!! I felt so relieved and was walking around teary-eyed, saying "Oh, that's SO cool!!" outloud...the way I was acting, you would have thought he was my own furbaby. Hooray!!!!
Tracy u made me have the biggest grin...and tears. I know exactly what u mean abt feeling like this is ur own furkid. I so much feel the same way abt Cody, and all my friends and their furkids. It's amazing that so much love can come thru this forum from, and to, furkids ( and their parents) we have never even met.
I love Cody like he is one of mine too.
Please give my boy some KFC from auntie Cindy--and some chin scritches.. big hugs to u!
Hi Marty, u are just awesome. Thanks for posting--I knew lots of aunties would be worried. Hugs to Greta and Otto
Hi Debs, I believe Bear was watching out for Justice too. Luci is a wonderful vet and she was so sure it was a MCT. Thank u Bear, and all the aunties.
Now it's getting the boys back on track!!
hugs to u and the kids.
Justie is still jerking--more butt meds for the little guy. It will take abt 2 days for the increased Felbatol to work. If he is still doing this during the night, I will call the neuro tmw.
Thanks so very much angels!!!!
