yes Bonnie, he is sad, he is not feeling well. Right now he's hiding in his crate, not knowing what else to do frown

I know I need to up his doxy dose, but I can't get there, with this stupid nose bleeding headbang

His eyes are always so red, part of his systemic inflammation - the pannus meds barely make a dent in that, but they do keep the corneas clear so that his vision is retained.

We're just sad over here right about now.

Lisa,

You both are permitted a down day. As everybody knows just fighting chronic illness is incredibly demanding, just staying in place. I do AIDS research and I remember well the caregiver burnout early in the epidemic.

You both must be bone tired.

Like Bonnie said, your cheering squad is on the field, wishing we could do something for you.

all the best,
Mary Jane

Thank you everyone, it really does help.
Another bleed this morning, worse than the most recent ones, probably from the increased pressure from the infusion.

I broke down and tried to cauterize it this morning. It did change colors, have no clue yet if it actually worked. I'm bringing him with me today, am already late for work.

It is possible, that his recent decline is due to the decrease in pred dose. I will play with that some. Wishing I would have run bloodwork yesterday, we had decided to give the thyroid one more week on the new dose, darn it!

Okay, even though it started bad, every day with Max at work with me is a good day smile

Ah Max...such a sweet and special boy... wub Lisa, I just don't know what to say to help. You are doing everything humanly possible to help Max get well. I still have much hope that will happen soon. I love what Melanie said. Something I've thought time after time, but was never able to put into words. He's so lucky to have you, and believe me, I know how lucky you feel to have him too. Continuing to send good and healing thoughts to Max. I hope he can feel the love coming his way from everyone on this forum. And lots of hugs to you Lisa. You are amazing... hugging

Long day, long week. The cauteriazation makes his nose look a lot better, but it bled a couple of times today at work. It bled in a slightly different area, so I might try to cauterize again. I dunno, I burned his tongue a bit - guess after I washed the nose, it wasn't enough and he licked it. Not sure what to do.

Will keep you all posted

And thank you! grouphug

Eta: thank you Steph, sorry that you have been brought here to the Health Forum. Off to find you update on kelso...

bloomrose Lisa ... thinking of you and Max. It sounds like you're doing everything possible for him ... you're lucky you can take him to work. You've always been so kind and helped me so much when one of the Hooligans has been sick, wish I could return the favor.

hugging hugging hugging Give him some extra hugs for me!!! hugging hugging hugging
