Welcome to my blog! 8 Paws and 2 Tails is a pet blog dedicated to all things cat and dog related with particular emphasis on one family's experiences dealing with medical issues, hospice and palliative care, coping with grief, home feeding and our pet's quirky behaviors.
It's been a pretty intense few days since our follow-up Doctor visit. Annie is doing great! The squinting and blinking have stopped completely. Her eye looks clear. She's holding still for her eye drops and I'm getting more proficient in administering them so more medicine is going into the eye.
Mary Poppins sang 'a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down' but in this case it's more like a dollop of cream cheese with an occasional switch to cheddar. Annie continues to take her anti-inflammatory pills squished inside a small cream cheese ball. We've settled into a routine so all of this is going quite smoothly to my great relief.
I'm confident our Christmas Eve visit will bring even better news and our little family will settle in for a truly Merry Christmas.
