  • hey jenny, its been along night and i am about to go lay down before the sun rises (|: (|: . hope all is well with you. i have to take my german shepherd for accu puncture this week. she had steriod shots in her spine area a couple of weeks ago, and they did not help her :''( . its really sad to watch her as she has lost feeling in her back legs, her hips are in good shape though. she falls down on her fanny and then just pulls herself around with her front legs :''( . when she walks its for a very short distance and sometimes spins around in a circle. hope you have a good day, got to go for now. kc
  • KC, oh, my boxer/pit is having terrible hip problems already and she is only alittle under 5 years. :''( if she overdoes it, she has to crawl around on the bed or the floor to get around. :''( we have to lift her onto the bed. ~X( by the next day she is feeling better but it just breaks my heart. =(( what else are you doing besides acupucture? :? we are giving her aspirin and glucosamine several times a day.. all the best to our four legged friends. >:D< you don't say how old yours is? :? Jenny :) p.s. do try and get some rest yourself!! :D

  • hi jenny, yes it is heart breaking :''( thing to watch. cai gets glucosamine in her dog food (nutro large dog senior), and she gets 4 cookies a day <:P that have glucosamine in it from nutro also, and she gets 4 pills a day of glucosamine (500mg each pill). we tried the pain pill for arthritus, can not remember the name, but they and the steriod shots in her spine did not have any help for her. about 18 months ago she was 115 pounds and she was not fat. since then i have slowly reduced the amount of food she eatsand now she is about 90 pounds. i did this to help her get a round alittle better. i think the less weight would of been real good if she did not progress downhill to where she is now with her legs. she still is a very happy dog but its sad to watch her go downhill. kc
  • almost 5 and i caught a few hours of sleep! =D> HURRAY!! <:P well, i mean sleep at night in the bed like all the other regular humans!! =)) so, is anyone up to play? thank you for all the info about Cai.. =D> i can tell we are both crazy about our four legged friends!! :X so,as i ponder sleep and animal friends listening to the Doors, now that is a dream! :D i am just a little wild on the keys tonight!!! =)) Hugsss to all my spiney non-sleepers!! >:D< i will see you tomorrow night i am sure!! Jenny :)
  • My Jazzy has problems with his hip usually in the evening, sometimes he gets 81mg aspirin and always gets daily glucosamine.

    The last week has been pretty bad for me, tossing and turning, waking up and right back to sleep. This week is shaping up to be the same. :( My pain levels are high still, I even called in to work today. I'm not sure my meds are quite enough today, I have some options with my meds but if I take any more I won't be able to drive so I'm holding off. I still have to make a trip to the pharmacy!

    Hugs for all my spiney friends >:D< >:D<

  • Jay, i am sorry to hear you have been have some extra tough time with pain and sleeping this week.. :''( please try and relax, (|: you know how i favor the radio, and falling asleep!! I) would that it was so easy? :? please take care of yourself. don't try to work when you really can't. i am not there to pull you out of there!! LOL! take care of Mr. Jazzy. he counts on you. :D sleep well when you can. I) even day sleep can be good sleep :D it may be time to tweak your meds. :? the change may improve your sleep as well as lower your pain levels.. Jenny :)
  • I just recently saw my PM doc and he thinks my meds are still good, even though I seem to be new symptoms weekly or so. The latest neuro doc suggested Baclofen, maybe that's not a bad idea, I'll let him and my PM discuss that though. I'm still hurting tonight, I may not go in tomorrow too. A little extra meds again tonight and hopefully get back to "normal".

    Looks like it's time to try and crash, doggies are all over me right now: c'mon daddy let's GO!
    lol

  • hi pete!! :H i am up for a ride just about anywhere tonight.. :? i can imagine being all cozy in the bunk beds as the train moves slowly back and forth across the track.. (|: once in awhile a light reaches out and catches small pieces of my face as we float down the track... :D you are a poet and we can meet at the station anytime pete! =D> hugsss, >:D< Jenny :)
  • heres a romantic train storry...
