Round 2 of vitamin C infusion!


It was a lot more today, but it took 1/2 the time....Mom finally figured out how to watch the drip and make sure that my arm was positioned right:


I really hate it when she points that flash at me, yikes:


Indy was peeking out and watching us today - you can see her jaw was crooked in the pic when she was a pup, pre-chiropractor. Mom keeps saying she is going to add a last "woof", but I don't think she's been able to face that yet...


It really isn't that bad. My eyes show how much my neck hurts, but the chiro fixed that before we left smile

I do get REALLY thirsty, and have to pee a lot afterwards - Mom is worried I'm going to pee out all the good stuff right away!

But I'd much rather be chillin' at home while she works on the lawn mower!

Thanks Ruth! Getting him a good night's sleep has to be a lot better for him too.

The adjustment must have helped Max immensely. He looks much happier in the last picture!

Thank you Recon, Joanne and Bonnie laugh

It's all helpful!

I think I figured out my next step, which will either be a really good thing, or a disaster.....

I did find a reference to one of the tetracyclines causing a hypersensitivity reaction that mimics septic shock. We've kinda tried just about everything else. Since he's on the pred, hopefully, backing off the doxy, won't flair the fistula, which is why he's on the long term doxy.

I know anytime I've taken doxy, I've felt really really crummy....I can't imagine how crummy it might make a person or dog feel after so long frown

Okay, so, the mad scientist is going to start her next experiment crossedfingers

Max does look so happy and content in that last photo. Like nothing is wrong at all. wub

It's so frustrating when there are no clear-cut answers. But I know you'll do your best to help Max. I hope his second infusion of vitamin C helps him feel better soon and that you can figure out a plan of action.

I think I see a healthier Max and a shimmering Nobel prize in the distance.

OK, I'm sure if you see a path, it's a good one.
