Anyone who has been put on prednisone knows how precious sleep is. It had been a while since I’ve been put on it and it was quite a, pardon the expression, rude awakening for me.
The first night I managed to get one hour of sleep. That was just great ***not***. The benefit of not sleeping was I went on line and found out what to do.
With help of the late, great Zush, I had Melatonin in the house, thank God. Last night I managed 5 hours of sleep and almost felt like a million dollars.
The good news is the symptoms were pretty much quieted with completion of the first dose. Today is day number three.
Four left to go.
We went to the vet today with Zush and her follow up sample for testing.
It makes me hate the Internet.
The vet tells me that Zusher might have Cushings disease.Naturally I come home, go on line, and my heart sinks. Seriously I know dogs don’t live forever. I know that. Is it too much just to want her to go out under her own steam.There’s a list of diagnostic symptoms-maybe 10 tops. Zush has two of them.
Every time I walk the girls I pray.I pray for everyone who asks me to keep them and their families in my prayers. I only hope Zush gets a good result.
