Quick Update

Hi Everybody!  It's me, Bart.  I just wanted to give

me after my second acupuncture last week

you all an update on my progress...

The neurologist thinks I have some sort of disk disease.  When I went to see her three weeks ago I could barely stand, and in fact I had to be helped back to the consultation room with a sling.  

WELL...

She started me on prednisone and I've been continuing my acupuncture with Dr. Sarah
and
I'm doing SO WELL!!

I get up on my own with no help and I am my usual happy self, greeting people with my toy
and being playful and pouncy!!  I really feel great!

I still can't go on any walks, but I'm so much more myself.  My pawrents are really happy and so are Otto and Ruby.  We have been playing a little.  

Otto is super respectful of me and plays with me without being rough and always lets me be dominate - he never lets me think he could kick my butt!!

Thank you all for your many kind thoughts and for stopping by to visit me.  I KNOW the POTP
has a lot to do with my feeling better, 
so thanks.

-Love,
Bart

haopee said...

Glad to hear some positive news. Prednisone? That's weird? Is it because you have an allergic reaction to something?

Anyway, you are lucky to have great parents and Otto and Ruby as pack brother sister.

Get well soon.

Leslie said...

Oh we've been away so long we didn't know you weren't feeling good, Bart. So glad to hear you're doing better now though.

And how great to hear that Otto is respecting you especially while you've been under the weather. Sounds like he's turned out to be a really good boy after all.

Can't wait to read a few more updates to see how the rest of the family has fared.

Best regards,
Leslie and Bella
