|Watching the girls behind the desk at the V-E-T|
Since we knocked her prednisone dosage down to 10mg/twice a day, she has shown great improvement! While she still slips a little here and there, and has some trouble climbing up on the couches (the bed is still out of the question for her without assistance), she is acting more like her 'ole self everyday. And, she gained another pound!

Sure, a 2 pound weight gain over 4 weeks doesn't sound like a lot, but we'll take it! She just looks so much better! Dr. C wants to keep Lola on the 10mg/twice a day dosage until mid-April, which is when we'll check back in with her. She had decreased her to this dose sooner than she would have liked, but Lola is just one of those dogs who did not do well on high doses. So, the idea is to stay on this dose for a longer period of time before decreasing down again. Her lumps have not returned -- knock on wood -- so all is good at the moment
Zeus tagged along on Tuesday night to have blood drawn for his 3-month liver level check up. We haven't gotten the results back yet, but I'm hopeful we'll have more to be thankful for later today...
