Thank you all for your kind and caring words. My dear sweet Eli is doing well. We've been back in the backyard playing ball daily and he is really enjoying it. I toss the ball into his mouth and a lot of the time he can catch it!!
It really doesn't matter how many times he catches it but its that look of engagement that makes it so worth while. He might not be able to run and chase the ball anymore but his heart is still in it.
I've got a lot to learn about steroids. I need to understand the benefits versus the risks, what our goals are and what we might expect from the results. Right now though, Eli's blood work is coming back really good!!! The doctor is running another Thyroid type test and I'll get those results tomorrow. Actually, I think he might be retesting something to do with the liver,,, can't remember if liver or thyroid.
