I am catching up on alot of posts tonight, and really want to thank each and everyone for the thoughtful posts, it means alot

This is beautiful Mary Jane, he is fighting and hope everyday that we are doing him justice. We do try to take comfort in the fact he is doing well/trying so hard, and then at the same time "somethin just aint right"

but the med decreases have seemed to help so far, we have been fortunate with a mild winter for our bare bellied boy smile our patchwork quilt smile that's what I call him

I emailed Dr. Dodds again tonight to see what her thoughts may be with the vaccine ect ect

I am happy, pleased, delighted, overjoyed, thrilled, ecstatic, elated after reading all the positive news about Kelso's progress today!!! That old saying, "A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step" came to mind, and it seems to me that you and Kelso have walked at least a hundred miles since your last update!!!

Glad the pred is starting to be reduced. You might see lots of difference fairly quickly, all for the good I hope.
Give him a pat from me and Holly and you and hubby keep up your strength and prayers.

Kelso is on 25 mg of pred a day now, started last week.

He has had a really good week. I am almost afraid to say it outloud!

Stronger on walks....he has tore up two of his beds in his room this week and has been humping blankets blush oh kelso....

needless to say, I think those are all good signs, the most kelso-like I have seen him since before this all started in sept.

thanks again

One day at a time I suppose

The humping comments are cracking me up, I couldn't believe it when I saw it

I am certainly happy to see Kelso have a bit of the 'tude he has always been known for with family and friends again.

I was telling my mom the other night that Kelso destroyed two of his beds and snuck up on the counters to steal the kitchen towels and she was glad to hear it! Who would have thought our dog's bad habits would be a good thing?

thanks again
