a huge hello from muumuu!
he's been on the low down this year and unfortunately its not that he's been busy on some huge craft project or seeing someone new. he has just been resting a lot. for the most part of this year, muu health has been like a rollercoaster. when he's good, he's happy and hopping around chasing blake like a bunny. but when he's bad... he's just lying there mopey all day!
we recently decided to look into alternative medicine - ie acupuncture to stimulate his hind leg which he has not been putting weight on... we were told by the last vet other than an operation or painkillers, basically, that's it. he's too little to hurt the other foot that he's been putting weight on so as long as he's happy, its alright to let him keep going. but we thought to get a second opinion after a few months just because our baby looks so broken with his three legged hop...
and there was bad news... he has an enlarged heart from old age, more of his injured leg has swelled and he's lost muscle mass. no acupuncture just yet. we need to address the other issues.... so he came home after a hefty bill, a day of blood tests with a box full of medicine. and weekly jabs of steroids and crazy things till forever.... and in most other respect, muu is the perfect child. but when it comes to meds, he is NOWHERE as chilled as blake is. he would not eat a single bit of his meds and even started rejecting his food.
so this is it. we will keep trying till this round of antibiotics ends. and if there is no improvement (which might be the case), then we will not be pursuing it any further. sometimes the quality of life is more important than how long his life is.
wish us luck! all we want this christmas is for him to have a clean bill of health.
