Yes, this week, the nose was definitely better! I so hope that he is here for a lot longer....I"m very worried.


I'm wondering if anyone here knows anything about tuberculosis, just thought of something...

I worked closely with a student, for several years, that was later found to have TB, that was inactive (didn't show up on xray), and I know she wasn't supposed to be contagious. I"m just wondering if I could have passed it along to Max, and it's not showing up on an xray, but causing some inflammation.

Just kinda wondering....stranger things have probably happened.

Does he have a cough?

Just been doing some Yahoo searches on it - it is zoonotic so if you think there might be a chance you do need to watch your own health

The only things you have passed on to Max are devotion, care and love. hugging

Haven't been able to check in to see how Max is doing but I have been keeping you both in my thought hugging

TB can be spread by wildlife no? I am fairly sure in New Zealand the hedgehogs were carriers.

Keep getting stronger Max, you are in the thoughts of so many.

The problem with the TB thought, is that his xrays are clear. I've heard him cough a handful of times though, and he didn't have that before. I messaged my doctor to see if I could get a quick TB test, just for fun....

bianca, I appreciate the efforts you are making to check the forum! I'm also keeping crossedfingers for Mary Jane this weekend....

My DH uses an older TB drug when he has a MRSA outbreak. Since this is a family of drugs not used much any more it works really well.

Thanks Val...it almost makes me wish I were positive for TB frown , how convoluted is that headbang

I just wish we could get a positive result on *something*. The internal med guy is pretty certain that there is lung inflammation (he calls it pneumonitis). The cause of it, not so certain.

I've been thinking about blood vessel dilation, vasculitis, etc. My only experience on the forums was with Enya, from the other forum ( rip ). That was anaplasmosa (which used to be classified as one of the ehrlichias). I found a reference to ehrlichia causing pneumonitis in humans: http://cid.oxfordjournals.org/content/37/6/846.full

I hope, one more week, and maybe I can start moving my concentration from the nose, to the breathing and the blood vessels. Last night I caught him digging up the sheet on his bed with his nose and my heart sunk, figured I'd be cleaning up more blood splatter. Just some ooze from the end, I caught him in time, and I think that's a really good sign.

Sounds like a good sign to me too. Hope it's only the beginning for Mr. Max.

Hi Lisa and Max,

If Max's nose could stand the friction from the sheet, that sounds a lot better than last week, I believe. I hate to think of the stress in your movement from one ailment to the other, but heaven knows if one is resolving that's progress.

Does Max have another vitamin C tomorrow, I lost count?

I don't know enough to have specific wishes, so please accept just a general wish for some better health for Max and some relief for Lisa.

Mary Jane

Hi everyone, thanks for checking up on me, it really helps. It's been a rough and frustrating week, so Mom and I are hoping that today's vitamin C infusion helps turn things around a bit. I've been having an awfully hard time breathing. Mom keeps looking at the giant peeks in radiation around here, and I keep telling her to stop being silly....she also says that my gums and tongue are kinda pale. They seem to work for me, so I'm not so worried.

I've had a few nosebleeds, but Ma stops them pretty quick. Between you and me, on our walks, I kinda just ignore her - I really miss sticking my nose in the grass and everywhere where I want to smell, so I try to do it anyway. And this eating from a spoon? I don't know how you hoomans do it, it really slows a dog down!

Today was infusion day for me, I lost count which one, I think Mom said #5:


I am always thirsty:


Okay, here we go again:


I'm feeling a bit out of sorts today:













Ma tried to get me to head tilt all morning, but I just wasn't in the mood.


But on the way home, when she mentioned breakfast, that made me feel better....


Getting old probably wouldn't be that bad, but being old and sick really sucks frown Hopefully things will turn around soon. At least I am still able to walk further than I was awhile back, and I really like my walks. And breakfast - I really like breakfast, even with a spoon. Oh, and dinner, dinner is good too? Did someone say treats? I really really like treats, and walks, and sitting in the yard and looking at the birds.....I guess things aren't really that bad, they could be worse!

Max the man, I have to share this with you. DeeDee taught me that some times you can just be happy stopping and smelling roses. So while you don't feel up to running around, I think things are a little better for you, you get to take longer walks without being exhausted. One of my first GSD's favorite things to do was to just sit or lay down and take in the sites and smells.

I see that you seemed a little bored with the Vit C infusion today. But you are such a good boy when you are there. I hope you got a really yummy breakfast when you got home.

Thanks Val....while I would rather be chasing these cattailwag (I look under every car in the hopes of finding one I will work on that stopping and smelling the roses!

I did get lots of treats today, so even I was bored, it's worth it to get out AND for the treats, yummy!

Breakfast was yummy, but, really, I hate waiting so long for dinner after that!
