Hello my blogger pals! I've missed you so! Thanks you for your prayers & sending the good vibes, they've worked tremendously!
While my Mommy was researching Eosinophilic Myositis she noticed there weren't enough pictures of animals for her to compare to me. After talking to my Daddy about it, he encouraged her to add a new tab to my blog using pictures & describing lengthily from personal experience what Eosinophilic Myositis is and what it does and what it takes to overcome it! Please bear with me as my blog will be going through these changes.
You've probably been wondering what I've been up to this past couple of weeks? Well, the roids are doing their job. I have been opening my mouth to it's full capability. Chewing & playing tug-of-war like never before! Mommy says sometimes the good outweighs the bad and in my case while being on prednisone this is very true.
The good: I can open my mouth! I can play bitey face, I can eat whatever I want! I can even carry my big rawhide bone around(I've been doing it lately JUST to do it!) Mommy goes into fits of laughter when I pick up my big ol' rawhide bone & prance around the house like a muscle boy!
The bad: I have fevers constantly, the boo boos seem inevitable. And sometimes I just lay around almost depressed like not wanting to go outside or play.
We know I won't be on prednisone for a long period of time as prolong use carries the increased risk of osteoporosis, cataracts, & can affect lipids(Cholesterol). If it is something our vet wants to keep me on according to Mommy's research we will be doing screening for latent bladder infection is important. Monitoring blood tests are recommended with long term use as well. Whatever our vet decides we will keep you updated so you know where we fare in the battle! So far it looks like all your love & prayers are pulling us through & we are going to win this battle & the war! No matter how bad I feel I can't pass up a chance to play! Once again, we love you all! Thank you so much for the good vibes & prayers they are working!
