Thank you, it's very difficult to watch what happens to her and not know what it is. Thi morning she could only eat 1/2 her breakfast before the tremors stopped her. I have finals week to get through next week, maybe jury duty the following week, and then hopefully ome better sleep hours and time at home will help her.

I don't really expect to have answer from the neuro, but a box to check off and get some input, on the off chance that she can provide some insight. I am not sure I will want to try drug trials right away, ince any drug we try will be a bit scary I suspect. I'm hoping I can get to my homeopathic vet, but jury duty is messing me up, she is several hours away, and hasn't yet met Jazz, so we can't yet consult by phone.

I sometimes wonder if this is related to her hernias that are supposedly fixed, but don't seem like it to me.

Moving forward I guess.

Damn, I was hoping the bloods would at least prove/dissprove something. Can you get out of jury duty?

I wish I could get out of jury duty, but I have already postponed it. I'm hoping that being the short week after Memorial Day, there won't be much activity.

I hope it's like jury duty here. In the morning you call in to see if they need you that day. Even if they ask you to come in, if you're not chosen, you are often dismissed by noon. If you could only arrange to have them ask you about tick diseases, I'm sure you would be dismissed as an advocate.

Truly, I read about Jazz here and just want so much for things to be all right. Not much help, but it is true.

Lisa, I honestly don't know what to say but wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you and Jazzy and hoping for a positive turn-around. Continuously sending wishes for perfect health for Ms Jazzy.

How the heck can something be so wrong, yet not show up on the diagnostics????

I'm still hopeful for the neurologist. Someone HAS to be able to put the whole picture together and tell you what you're dealing with.

I think that we have the wrong antibiotic. Thinking about thi further, I think that we have the wrong abx, and our taper program isn't going to work if at full dose it can't keep the symptom from getting worse.

Something needs to be done asap, he is afraid to eat in the mornings and runs from food with her tail tucked. I will tinker some this weekend so I can report back to the IMS mext week.

There may be a neuro problem. But I think she is aalso having problems from either colititis or the C Perf or something in the gut. I thought it miught have been the tylan, but it' not getting better with the reduction to once a day.

Is Jazz getting enough to eat? I guess I'm seizing on a small point-but she's too tiny and insufficient food will screw up the dosages of everything.

My dear heaven this is a nightmare.

I truly hope Lisa and the vets can find the right treatment for Jazz.

take care,

MJ

I sure wish a magic pill could be found to help Miss Jazzy. hugging

This is all so far above my knowledge I can't even make an intelligent comment about her health. But I sure have you both on my mind and hope it gets better for you soon.

Thank you Elvi and Bonnie!

A magic pill would be nice!

There are 3 differnent antibiotics that helped her immensely, and on day 3 after finishing each, she starting getting worse again. I've read several C. Difficile patients with this experience. So maybe I haven't given up on the C Perf angle.

3 days after the clavamox, last march, she started getting worse, while on the tylan and continued to get worse. I thought it might be a reaction to the tylan, but now I think I was wrong.

Logic seems to dictate that we need to use what works to do the taper with.

Her inappropriate urinary issues seem to be mostly resolved, so I hope that means removing that strip of tissue along the vaginal wall worked and it has not grown back. She's got the funky urinalysis results, but that showed something different than before.

I am not sure we are ready to consult with the neuro, but she has weird enough other issues, aand I really do trust this IMS's instincts, so I'm inclined to keep the appointment. I have switched the abx this weekend away from tylan, and expect her to feel better soon, and then we start all over with the taper plans, barring anything else cropping up.
