Blue


Yahoo, Blue is doing good! We had a scarry 48 hours of not coming out of anesthesia after a simple toenail operation. Turned out his liver was not functioning properly to get the anesthetic out of his system, so we had a very groggy & glassy eyed dog for way too long.

As of this morning he has started to develope an interest in food, I was able to get the liver meds down him and a few hours later he brought me a ball. No, can't play yet, but it's good to know he wants to again! He is getting the sparkle back in his eyes again too.

From here, it is a bland diet of chicken and rice jello for a couple days, then a special formulated dog food that is meant for dogs with liver problems. Liver meds from now on, and a change to his arthritis meds.

The picture on the couch is today, starting to feel better, and the other picture is the beginning of a crazy quilt collage I will make this week in thanks. I have loved that picture of the praying girl with her dog and kitten as long as I remember, I think a relative had it when I was a child. I never expected to have a JR that would look just like the one in the picture! I will post the crazy quilt collage when done.
