Mostly Wordless Wednesday: Another Neurology Patient in the House (a joke)
Remember that lovely gift package Lilly received from Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology after her week-long hospital stay? Well, we think she is channeling her frustration over her brain troubles in new ways.
They tell us that Lilly likely wasn’t in any / much pain, even at the height of the inflammation in her brain and lining of the brain and spinal cord (meningoencephalomyelitis), but I have to wonder if Lilly doesn’t have a headache … after seeing this.
Monkey isn’t the only toy to take a beating last week. Look what Lilly did to her Ferret Bandit toy.
I like to think this means Lilly is feeling better. But, I cannot have her ruining all her best toys, so I did give her a rawhide bone to chew (even though she isn’t that far removed from such terrible side-effect tummy troubles). She seemed glad to have something do with her cooped-up energy.
Remember, ONE MONTH ago tomorrow (1/23 – 2/23), Lilly received her rabies vaccine and has been very ill since. So, she hasn’t had much fun in a long time.
We’re working on that and creating opportunities for her to get outside some each day (more than just to potty) and to play a little inside and outside (as weather permits).
Tomorrow is Lilly’s next recheck exam at Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology, so we hope to have important news on her recovery after that.
