Darla Update...

Saturday was a good day. She showed very little neurological signs. She even paraded her blankie around the living room. Something she loves to do, but hadn't done in awhile. Heck, I immediately welled up when I saw that and thanked the Lord above. ♥

I'm beginning to think the ear infection is the culprit of her bizarre seizure-like behavior she's had. I know how loopy it can make a human. Hopefully this new antibiotic she's on is finally kicking in. I keep praying. I wonder if that tick bite was too much for her immune system and sent everything into a frenzy? Who knows?

I do have concerns about her thyroid though. She is still very foggy and loses interest. She's sleeping a lot. But an infection can do that too.
Another sign of hypothyroidism in a dog is they lose fur on their tail. Darla's sweet lil' nubby tail is lookin' a little neked lately. :> ) I too have a bad thyroid, but never lost any fur off of mine. **giggle**

The vet should have her tests results back today and I'll have more answers.

She spent most of her day yesterday on the couch, basking in the glorious sunshine we had.


I didn't blame her one bit.

I want to thank all of you for your prayers, comments and personal emails you send regarding my precious Darla.
♥ You have no idea how much they mean to me!! ♥

Lastly,I am finally able to let you in a little secret I've been keeping. But since I need to take some photos, it will have to wait a little longer. **giggle** Sorry!

I'll keep you posted.

Happy Monday all!
Have a terrific week and remember to enjoy nature.

Thanks for the update! Hopefully she will feel better each day! You gave me a good laugh when you said you hadn't lost any fur off your tail! I will continue to keep Darla in my prayers! Our pets are our babies how well I know!
