I'll have photo update later, but Sherman is doing as well as can be expected.

Last Saturday, he was in so much pain in his neck and foreleg and with new deficits that I considered euthanizing him at the vets, but couldn't follow through with it. Instead, we upped his meds to maximum dosages, and he has been having better days, definitely more comfortable. But we are titrating his Prednisone back down again, so we'll see how things go from here.

He's been on 80mg of Prednisone per day and 200mg of Tramadol every 8 hours as well as Doxcycline, and now 40mg of Prednisone and 150mg of Tramadol every 8 hours.

Some nice photos of Shermie Bear later.

"Hello all, just wanted to stop by and let you know things are improving now,
although I still have a right foreleg deficit with the injury being high in my neck."





"Initially, I hurt all over and mom was very worried about me."





"Eventually, I became more comfortable BUT, can someone help me get up?"





"SO humiliating, not being able to get up to do my business during my recovery!"




"With my right foreleg being so painful and numb, I often favored my left foreleg."





"Even though I could still move the right one when I really wanted to."





"Ooops, I think I'm due for a bed change."




"Did I mention my mat was a great way to keep me safe during my mini-baths in case I fell?"





"Don't you wish you had a comfy bed mat like this?"





"One day, mom came home to find I had been trapped on the hard floor, and bled into my left callous, OUCH!"





"Compare to my right leg callous. Both photos taken five days after incident."





"But I am feeling SO much better now, thanks to medication and lots of rest."







"AH, the comforts of home, and being part of a loving family, in sickness and in health."

wub wub wub wub wub wub wub Donna, thank you so very much for this gift of a sweet SHERMIE update!! (not that I'm wildly, insanely in love with him or anything..) wub wub wub wub wub

Donna, these compelling, beautiful photos show the warmth, care and expert spoiling that Sherman is drinking in. Love, family, and being cared for, he knows that he's got it made. These photos show an incredibly sweet family tableau as much as the superior knowledgeable care for a senior dog in recovery. Matsi, Dukie, and-- is that Ginger's head resting in the kitty cube up there?-- they all look so very deeply loved. Especially the King of The Castle Himself!

It's so much work to care for an ill senior, and you are doing phenomenally. I love these pictures. I love you and Shermie, too! hugging Thank you for the update on our favorite Southern charmer!

PS-- I love his happy, smug, content expression in the pic with his red ball in his mouth! grin

"On Sunday, mom took me for my first adventure in many weeks."




"While relaxing along the river, something caught my attention."





"So I sat up to investigate (yes, all by myself)."






"Then, I belched out a most ferocious bark."





"Not getting the response I had hoped for, I decided to walk over (yes, all by myself) to investigate."





"Is he bothering you, Star?"





"He's cute."





"I think I chased him away."





"Yup, GONE, old dog and cute man, too."





"Don't worry, Tara, ol' Sherm is on the lookout for more intruders."





"Looks like the coast is clear."





"Luckily, my legs are working pretty good today."





"And I can walk myself back..."




"To my treasured seat of serenity."





"I'm glad you are feeling well enough to go on adventures again, Shermie Bear."





"I'm just glad I can WALK again, comfortably."





"Coming mom? I'll still need your assistance to get back into the car."





"Don't worry, I'm still with ya, my friends."





"OH, and I'm still with YOU, my friends!"

"Pssst, Cheyenne, I'm definitely interested, but we may need to meet secretly. I'm open to suggestions."
