Midge says thank you























Midgie would just like to say thank you for all your good wishes.  As you can see she is still stuck in her lampshade but the hideous big scab is just about to fall off (that might be too much information for some of you!) so hopefully she will not have to wear it much longer.
She has recovered very well and we have been fortunate to meet a couple of very friendly dogs while out walking and I think that did her the world of good as she was very wary and a bit snappy to start with.  I think it has affected me more than her, I still cant put her down when I first go out into the lane to walk up the hill and I always have a big stick with me.
We had the blood tests back and it seems that she is on too much medication for the Cushings and we have stopped giving her anything at all till next week to see how she goes and then reintroduce it at a lower level.  Too much can also make them feel poorly as it ups their steroid level. So hopefully this is a good sign and we are hoping her bounce will return soon.
So thank you all again and I will keep you posted.

I would be a nervous wreck still.. but will have to overcome this fear of dog meet dog if we are to get a border terrier one day.. as is our wish.

Have a good weekend.
