Allie Mae - The Power of the Paw is Helping!

Ms. Allie Mae
Allie Mae is hanging in there.  Her hematocrit is up though still critical at 13 (went to 10 yesterday - normal low is 37).   The vet's found out she will eat room temp cat food - not a lot but at least she is eating - and oh, it needs to be on a plate (she isn't specifying a pattern nor is china necessary).  I was ready to send her to Heaven today but with the latest small incremental improvement, we are giving her another day at least.  Everyone needs their chance as long as they are not in pain.  Though she is an older dog, she has been a spunky one whose age alone is not a factor in her treatment decisions.  Could we do a lot more?  Sure - if I took her to St. Louis.  We will see how she does here.  Thank you for all your prayers and support!

  2. You are so right, Angus! Today she looked better than yesterday - still on cat food but off the IV - which is good when one has a touch of congestive heart failure. One day at a time....

  3. I'm thinking of you tonight! Hoping for many more days! Baby food is usually a temptation that's hard to resist, by the way. Blessings on you both!
