Chili update

Well things are not looking so great right now.  It appears that she may have 3 or 4 different auto-immune diseases, although we are still waiting for test results to come in.  She is really weak in the rear and has to be helped to a sitting or standing position.  Once she is on all four paws, she walks fairly well but has to helped up and down stairs.  the doctors so far are saying that cortisone treatments will change things for the better for her and that we need to give it a month to see how it goes.  Right now I am not feeling like she's improving much but I must be patient.  she's such a little trooper as she very seldom vocalizes her pain but I know she is experiencing some degree of pain.  Hard to say how much, dogs are absolute masters at masking their pain.  Please say a little prayer for our little girl.

    Dogs are so lovable and never share their pain, they just keep on waggin'.

    I'm glad she has a great owner like you to take care of her!
