HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Well, furrends, life is getting back to normal. I am feeling much better. I am active, eating well, pooping well, and sleeping pretty well. I rolled off the bed pad and peed on Lady's comforter. She wasn't happy, but didn't scold. I ask to get up in her lap again. I peed on her so she put me down. Oops. She's the one that forgot to put a pad in her lap, duh. 
My blood work yesterday showed my kidney function is almost in the normal range. I have a new chow: Royal Canin Renal Diet. I like it. I like the canned better but it is expensive. They had to order it for me so I will have the canned sometimes. My WBC is too high, so they added an antibiotic to my list. I go to the vet once a day now. I will have another blood test Monday. Lady has a trip Sunday night. She thought she had an in-home sitter lined up but she fell through. So did five other people. 
Guess what? Vet said today I can have 1/2 cup of Probiotic yogurt a day for awhile! I love it! I am so happy. It will help my tummy. It's been through a lot. No cheese though. Ate a carrot today. Yum. Things are looking up. Lady doesn't want me to go to the kennel. Still looking for a sitter. 
I'm going to have a scar on my head. 2016 is going to be okay I think. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  1. Dearest Marley,
    We are in tears here in Florida just reading about your horrible ordeal over Christmas. Bawling our eyes out in fact. Mommy is the worst of them all. I am trying to be brave for you Marley, but you did have us all quite nervous! And we will still be nervous with all this happening. Seizures? Oh goodness. And falling 10 feet and a bandaid on your head too. Poor Lady, as we know her heart hurts for you. Marley, please, please, please know just how much we love you. You are a VERY special man in our lives and you have to get better. You have to do it for you, for your Lady and for us. We are praying really hard for you both.

    Love your girl,
    Lily Belle
    xoxo

    1. You're the best girlfriend ever. Thanks for your encouraging words. Lady thinks I am still bloated and is worried about leaving me, but she can't change her trip.

  3. Just keep improving. Who cares about a scar. We think Yoghurt is a perfect addition to your diet.

    1. You're right, I shouldn't. I peed just inside her bedroom last night so she walked in it in her socks. She says she does a lot of "peepee laundry" every day cuz of me, but doesn't scold. At least I pooped on the balcony. I don't know why she gets so excited when I poop. Guess cuz I have had so much trouble in that department.

  5. Marley...you've had a rough week or two! I'm glad things are getting better though. Wish you lived a little closer to me so I could take care of you.

    1. You're so sweet. Lady says we are moving to the US but now doesn't know if I can get my health certificate to fly. Her work here is almost done. I need to go take care of Grandma and Grandpa.

  8. It sounds like things are going so much better for you, Marley. And 1/2 cup of yogurt sounds wonderful. Yogurt is almost as good as ice cream!
