We checked Tad's urine yesterday, and it was at a normal concentration. So, that is GREAT. However, we'll continue to check his concentration at least once a week to be sure, and potentially catch something before it gets out of hand.
Tad is just doing AWESOME. I don't even think that's the appropriate word. We're still having an issue getting in the Tahoe to come to work in the mornings and go home at night, and getting out is a battle, as well. If I disappear, and leave the door open, and he can't see me...he'll fly out of the Tahoe. But, getting him in it is a bit trickier. I want to say that my Tahoe is too high (it's lifted almost 6 inches more than normal Tahoes). My dogs run and jump in and out with no problems, but this is all new to Tad. I know there's a learning curve there.
His wounds are almost completely non-existant since the second Convenia injection, so that makes me super happy. He's less itchy today and yesterday, but still has some. It's to be expected. He got some shampoo in the mail from Pamela Madden, and we're going to use that today for his bath.
Also, more happy news...now, when he shakes his head, he does not rupture the wounds on the underside causing them to bleed...that is AWESOME. He still bleeds easily, so we get mega excited when things heal to the point they won't easily bleed.
He still stinks to high heaven, and my Tahoe smells like there's something dead inside...it's kind of embarassing. lol ...but, oh well. Occupational hazards, again.
He's starting to play...sort of. He'll chew on the toys, and he wants to play with Walker and Chica, but they're both old farts and uninterested. He knows his name, and is EXTREMELY obedient. We're still working on 'sit', but he knows 'stay' and 'come'. I'd like to think he's smart, but...othertimes, I am not so sure. lol
We've gone to mostly dry food now, he gets 1/2 can in the mornings and 1/2 can at night. When we first started this, he didn't want the dry food, only canned. But, I'm sorry, Tad-o...you're going to have to be like everyone else in the house. :)
This update is kind of rushed, and I apologize. I am so largely overwhelmed I can't even think straight.
I know we're lacking in videos and pictures, but the computer guy took my computer back today because it's wonky... :/
