Thanks for the Ali update Kenny. Holding her own at her age with the problems she has going on is good news.
I can't remember if I updated the story on my geriatric part time dog (that's Jersey who is 12-1/2 with a heart condition was on an anti-arryhymic to control a major problem with arrythymias--the drug is very effective but an appetite killer. She went home for the weekend (her dad was still off work following the death of my friend, his wife) and couldn't deal with the failure to eat--had a long talk with her cardiologist--they upped the quantity of sotalol (another anti-arrythymic) and took her off the mexilatine (the appetite killer) and she eats--pretty well most of the time--has put some of her lost weight back on. But she's in the same boat as Ali--she'll tell me and her dad when it's time.
It's so hard to even think about losing these dogs--they are family members and Jersey's dad said when he dropped her off this week that he just couldn't deal with another loss in his family right now.
We think of you daily Ken and your Ali girl and send prayers and best wishes along...
