Zoey Relasped

    

          The vet said it might happen and that her lab work, while so much better wasn't perfect yet.   So today Rick and I changed places and he came home to doggy puke.  Better him then me.  So Zoey was really sorry but not feeling really perky today.   She is back on medicine.  I hate trying to give her the carafate as it disolves so quick and she does her best to spit it out making her choke.  She likes the antibiotic so I use that as a treat when she takes the other pill.  She is down 7 pounds and starting to feel bony.  I don't like that at all.  Otherwise she is still not near as bad as she was.  Hope she feels better tomorrow.

     My MIL is slightly forgetful and very tired today.  She slept most of the day.  When she didn't have her oxygen on she looked pretty dusky.  So all in all, not the best of days. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
               

 The tag below is one Donna made, purple for pancreatic cancer like my MIL and her sister has.

I'm sorry Zoey isn't too good again, let's hope she picks up soon and gains some weight. Donna does some great graphics doesn't she? I hope your MIL gets some rest in. Jeannette xx

Another worrying time for you all!   I'm so sorry Julie.
Poor Betty too.  

Praying for an improvement in Zoey soon and comfort for Betty as well.

That's a lovely Tag that Donna made for you.   She and her sister are always in my prayers too.  It's such a cruel world sometimes having to watch loved ones going through such pain and discomfort.

God Bless

Julie- it is now morning and i hope Zoey is beginning a better day. i was heartbroken to read she was ill again. prayers going up for all of you, that Betty is as comfortable as possible, Zoey is feeling better, and you, Rick, and the rest of your family are given strength and support.

i love the cancer tag. my dad is going through chemo now and my mother died of nonhodgkins lymphoma. would it be ok with you if i copy and paste that tag and email it to my dad?

It doesn't sound like a relapse so much as just not a full recovery yet.  If the labs are still good, then there is good news there.
