More News on Paddy

It was back to the vet with paddy again this morning. He gave over his blood sample like a good little boy, had his weight done and temperature done. His temperature is fine, his weight is down again to 13 kg from 13.8 kg. The vet has given him a month's course of steroids to see how he goes. The vet rang Jo this afternoon to say his red cell count had gone up to 2 points from 24 to 26. So a slight improvement. We will now see how he goes over the coming month. At the moment we and the vet are looking at a condition called myelofibrosis, which is not curable and so we know at some point we will have to make a decision, but for now he is wagging his tail and is eating again, so we will see how he goes Smile.

Sorry to hear that Keith, lets hope that Paddy continues to improve, especially as he wants to eat which is always a good sign. Animals amaze me how they can recover when us humans cant. Keeping everything crossed for him. Xxx
