First off I just want to let you know that we are having more good days than bad days with Carmeh this past week, but she still has issues. The last 24 hours she will eat or won’t eat her chicken, not sure what to make of it. Our vet back in Kelowna suggested that if I did one thing for her that it would be to get Carmeh on an antioxidant as it would helpful because of the oxidative damage ongoing to the pancreas. So I arranged to order some Denosyl and had it shipped to Texas where our neighbors daughter was flying here for mini vacation. We got the meds last Tuesday but Carmeh refuses to take it. It is a chewable tablet and she won’t even try to eat it. She has refused it crushed in her food ( it is supposed to be given on an empty stomach but I was desperate ), in fact she did not eat that meal at all. Yesterday was chicken cooking day and I did a much better job thanks to all of your suggestions. I once again crushed the Denosyl and added a few tablespoons of chicken broth and she walked away. She loves chicken broth but with no additives. The pill is the size of a nickle and there is no way I can get that down her throat. It sure would be easy if I could wrap it in cheese or peanut butter but that is a not possible because of the fat content and her pancreatitis. Besides she is still only on chicken and rice and still is having episodes of diarrhea. Oh yes, I also tried crushing it, adding water and giving it to her via syringe but that is an awful lot of water to force on her and I gave up. She has enough issues without my adding to them. So we are still taking it one day at a time. The good news is that she does not to appear to be in pain.
Our friend Suzanne has been here all week and we did manage to have some great times. A week ago today we went to Miguels for dinner but I forgot my camera. Last Sunday Colin and I had tickets for the symphony and I was able to get a ticket for Suzanne just two rows behind us.
Prior to the concert I was at the box office getting extra tickets to a future symphony for guests who will be here at that time. Two people ahead of me in line were an elderly gentleman and his wife who were trying to get tickets for Sunday’s performance. He only had US dollars and was being refused tickets. They only took pesos. He was obviously crushed. I completed my transaction and came out to find Suzanne and Colin and begun to relay the story of the older gentleman and his ticket problems. As I spoke I looked up and saw him approach person after person trying to exchange USD for pesos. Suzanne immediately offered to help him out and happily did the exchange for him.
A very pleasant Sunday indeed.
