Update, July 30, 2010

Things are slowly getting back to normal. Haley is most of the way out of season, and Elvis is experiencing much less attachment to her than he has in the past couple of weeks. He’s still interested in where she … Continue reading

7/26/2010 (AKA one step forward, two steps back)

**sigh** In some ways, things are going much better with Elvis. He’s calmer than he was last week. His interest in Haley has waned somewhat. He can stand some separation from Haley. In other ways, things have not improved. He … Continue reading

MUCH better night

Last night was MUCH better than the last few nights. I think moving onto the sofa was a very good idea. Elvis was a little confused at first because, even though Haley was on the floor on a pallet, usually … Continue reading

Evening Update 7/24/2010

It’s been a relatively uneventful day. I gave Elvis 1/4 Valium around noon, and then left off the Valium at dinner. He still got a bit more excited than usual during our dinner, but that may simply have been the … Continue reading

Evening Update 7/22/2010

I think we’ve got a MUCH better handle on Elvis’ anxiety tonight. Like I mentioned earlier, this afternoon after lunch, I gave him 1/4 Valium to help settle him down. He was beginning to pant and whistle (the only descriptive … Continue reading

Afternoon Update 7/22/2010

Talked to Dr. Walthall, and I’m going to up Elvis’ Prednisone to twice a day. He only gets 1/4 tablet once a day right now, and that can be increased quite a bit provided I keep an eye on fluid … Continue reading
