Abby's Update

Several days ago I posted a piece on Tileena and Matt's little schnauzer, Abby. She is almost 5 months old.

A couple of weeks ago, without warning, Abby became unable to walk. She was totally immobile and depressed. The vet recommended cortisone shots.
I'm happy to report that on this Sunday she was getting around on three legs. Our son, Matt, called last night (Monday) to tell us she is now using four legs! She's getting better a little at a time and should be herself before long.
Thanks to all of you who sent up prayers on her behalf. Many of you wrote to Tileena with your best wishes and we appreciate you kind words.

Hi Barbara. :) That is really good news! She's making an excellent recovery. Animals are so..... oh, I don't know the word for it, but they just get on with things, don't they. :) I'm glad to hear she's getting better.

Barbara said...

Lesley- You are right. They don't complain, they just go about getting well.

Glad to hear the good news. Poor little pup has had her share of a struggle!

P.S. Barbara, quick question - I notice you have the Cutest Blog on the Block template. I often find that when I visit blogs with this template, I get a funny pop-up that locks up my computer and I can't close the pop-up without manually shutting down the computer. This has happened on 3 different computers. Do you know if anyone else visiting you has had this pop-up, or has it happened to you? Thanks much!

Barbara said...

Lor- Thank you.

Barbara said...

Joanne- I haven't had anyone mention it. When I go to other blogs that have it, I never have a problem.

Maybe we can get another reader to comment on the issue.

Thanks, Joanne for letting me know.

Barbara said...

Linda- Yes, I could hardly believe my eyes. She has tried so hard to get better and now it looks like it's happening!

Barbara said...

Lea- It was so heartbreaking, but now things seem to be looking up for their little family.

Leslie- I believe the prayers helped her. The night I first saw her, it was sooo pitiful. She tried to get up, but just fell over. I didn't have alot of hope for her recovery at that time. But that little sweetheart just kept trying to walk and now it looks like she going to recover!
