Has anyone heard from Silver or his mom?

((((((Dee & Strudel)))))

I am so glad you got a good report.

Having their food raised up is actually good for all dogs according to my vet. Especially dogs who are prone to the 'goose cough' and poodles are a breed notorius for that. Don't know if anyone here has it, but all 3 of ours did, especially the two full bred poodles, Shilo and Maggie. I hate when it sets them into that spasm coughing. We started raising the food up with our previous two girls and Maggie has had it ever since she was a pup. We found a plastic coated wire bin (in the kitchen section of Kmart)just the size to fit two bowls. We turn that over and use as the platform. It is lightweight, easy to clean and sanatize, and since it is open wire nothing grows under it.

I am so glad the latest wasn't a seizure. Sending our dear Strudel lots of love, prayers and Reiki. And you too, Dee. May you both continue to heal quickly and without incident.

Bright Blessings

I got a good report from the vet today. He said that he didn't think Thursday's incident was a seizure. He thinks she just passed out. The problem is that she can't swallow normally. She looks like a little bird with her head up in the air when she tries to eat and swallow. He gave me a GREAT idea, and it seems to be working. I put her water and food on top of a shoebox so that it would be level with her head. That way when she eats and drinks, she doesn't have to bend her head down. It makes it easier for her to swallow too. She now eats her pureed food on one of my FiestaWare salad plates, and I fill her water bowl all the way to the top so she doesn't have to bend to drink water. At first she was afraid of the new procedure and wouldn't come near the plate, but I put food on my finger and fed her, each time bringing her closer and closer to the plate until she was eating directly from it. I added 1/2 a chlortab to her medicine to keep the mucous from accumulating in her body, and she's still taking the Tramadol for pain and Prednisone to relieve the swelling of the brain, etc. If all continues to go well, he said that he doesn't need to see her until the first week in March. Then he'll do complete blood work to see how her kidneys and liver are fairing with the meds, etc. I continue to pray and thank G-d every day for her continued strength. She is so very precious.
Hugs to Everyone,
Dee and Strudel emoticon

Prayers and poodle licks for Strudel and Dee. Cleo's doing better--the vet says he'll resample in a couple weeks when the twice-daily pills finish.

Prayers to Logan, Cleo, and Tess.

I thought Strudel was getting a little better, but tonight she had another seizure. Seems she's having trouble swallowing and either her food or drink got lodged. I cleared her throat, gave her mouth to mouth, held her and prayed. I think the vet is going to have to give her IV's of nourishment tomorrow. She now only weighs 3.5 pounds. I know she's hungry, but I can't feed her much because she aspirates. I have liquid protein (like Ensure) as well as pureed food, along with her regular food. When I'm not feeding her through a syringe, she's licking the tips of my fingers that are dipped in food. She's just not getting enough to eat. Each time she seizes I worry about the lack of oxygen going to her brain.

I'm beside myself!

Seems to me we need to expand out prayer chain out to our other friends: We have Strudel, Logan, Cleo. Who else of our friends need to be added to our list?

OMG...Bless her little heart. How awful for Dee and little Strudel. It just breaks my heart for little doggies to go through such pain and of course they don't understand what's happening to them. Please keep us informed. Prayers go out to Dee and Strudel both! Love and hugs to both of them.

Bless her little bones. Dee you may have to just hold her and help her hunch up. I will call my daughter tomorrow and ask her. She is a vet tech and actually has to do the work when a pup is brought in in this condition.

Thank you guys. I'm typing right now with one hand while holding Strudel. She has been constantly in my arms. Her appetite has improved, but I'm hand feeding her. She still hasn't 'pooed' & the dr. told me to inject a little saline into her tushy. She just can't haunch without losing her balance.

Please keep praying.
Hugs,
Dee & Strudel

I miswrote the chain and it should read Strudel and Dee. I had just read another sparkmail and my brain imploded while typing.

Continued prayer to my two friends.

Dee My heart is just breaking for you and little tiny Strudel. I have added you to a world wide prayer list. I firmly believe in prayer and believe that it is the only gift that we have to give one another that can't be bought at Walmart.

Try to keep her little body hydrated. I know you are right by her side and you both are right by my heart in my thoughts and prayers.

You are not alone. You have God and us. There is nothing stronger than that.

Dee asked me to fill everyone in, so I will post her message here. She is very worried about Strudel and would appreciate your prayers. I know they are strong because they are working for Logan. So here it is:

I took Strudel to the vet again today like he asked. She said she was "a little" better but that she wasn't out of the woods and if she continued to improve it would be a very long battle. He gave me some canine Ensure to give her for nutrition and also gave her a B12 shot.

She needs to go to the br but whenever she haunches she loses her balance so now she's afraid to even try. She tried outside the vets on concrete and immediately fell backward but I caught her before she hit the concrete. I know it scared her.

Right now she's sleeping on our bed but occasionally opens her eyes and looks so pitiful. I think she's running a fever today. I don't know why the vet didn't check her temp. today. Her little nose is cracked and her body is so warm. There's no "spark" in her today.

I was supposed to go to the doctor tomorrow and I canceled because I don't want to leave her right now. I rescheduled.

I'm so very worried about her. I don't have a good feeling about all of this, and when I think about it, all I do is cry.

Please fill Mary and the others in on what's happening with Strudel for me. I don't have the strength or heart to go on the message board. I know that Mary (April's mommy) will be especially concerned.

Thanks and please keep in touch. Maybe you could get a prayer chain going with everyone on our poodle site? I know that prayer chains work for humans because they kept Tommy around longer than expected, so maybe with massive prayers Strudel will get better.

Hugs,
Dee
