Wordless "Power of the Paw" Wednesday
Cleo Update - 6/13/2011
This morning I talked to Dr. T (vet man) and he said that Cleo appears to be slightly better this morning. Paralyzes is not as relevant in her front leg/paw this morning, but she still is showing signs of weakness in her back legs still. Blood work this morning is showing high numbers in her Pancreas and her Red Blood count is very low. Dr. T is not sure what is causing the low red blood count at this point, but he said her color is good.
He kept her on heavy muscle relaxers last night and super juice running through her IVs to help with the inflammation around her spine. Since Cleo has showed some signs of improvement the first 24 hours, we will continue this treatment for the next 24 hours to hopefully reduce more swelling around her spine area.
I will be heading to the vet over lunch to visit with Cleo. Dr. T wants me to see her and give him my opinion on how she is looking and acting today.
Cleo, continues to need our prayers, drool, power of the paw to help her through this. We appreciate all the nice words of encouragement everyone has given us so far. It really helps to know we have such great people in blogville that fully understands what we are going through when our fur-babies become sick.
