Weather here has been cold and wet or snowing for a while now. Dogs don’t care but we cant afford a lung infection… Mya loves to be outside, until summer, then she wont stray outside the range of the air conditioner.
We had our walk on the pier and an ice cream few weeks ago, Mya and Macleod loved it… Over the next few days it took her longer and longer to get up each time and then finally would sit back down once or twice before getting up to do some business{ usually after we walk away for a bit }. the last 3 or 4 days she hasn’t been able to make it all the way up, I tried to help her a few times and she hates it. If I approach her when she appears to be trying she will just lay down. We are using a blanket now to carry her in and out of the house. We lay the blanket down for her but she is “wiggly” and before long she has worked her way off it. She will get talking and agitated when she has to go to the bathroom. If she’s inside we taker her out and if she’s outside we just make sure she clears the blanket if she is still on it. She wont do it in the house and still has trouble letting go if she is on the blanket. She is a little backed up from the pain meds and we’re giving her pumpkin in meals as well as a stool softener. She will usually go every other day, but I think its day two now. We set up a 12×12 collapsible BBQ tent so she can stay dry out in the rain, and we can move it around. I set up a security camera system I got a few months ago so now I have a really sweet baby monitor with night vision. She has had a rough one tonight, couldn’t sit still for long. I have been coming into the office to warm up once in a while so I’ve had a chance to write. I watch her on the monitor , and bet a time-laps sequence of her sleeping would be interesting.

I heard of a herb, Artemisinin { Asian medicine from sweet worm wood } it has anecdotal remarks of regressing cancer cells. It’s said that it is not for patients that are on radiation therapy. We ordered some from Absorb Health on line and should be here in a few days. We ordered another case of the CBD cookies but they got sent back to the supplier because of some paper work with shipper, didn’t have that issue last time… So they are now delayed for maybe weeks. Mya is such a fighter and I just want to give her every tool a trainer can give a fighter while she is in the ring. I feel the need to stand in the next parliamentary meeting and beat my fist on the table and spit while I speak about the way big business has put possibilities aside because profit dictates the research… Oops I just fell off my soap box !!!..  Sorry…

So Macleod has gone off tramadol and then back on it again after sign of limp came back, still wearing the cone of shame. Mya was off tramadol for a bit but is now back on board. Likely why she’s constipated, The CBD treatables cookies seemed to help her with digestion,  Stupid paper Work!!!

Has anyone heard of the herb Artemisinin (wormwood)? I heard about it less than 48 hours ago… people have used it for many years and some have used it on pets with success.  Well it’s time to get back to Mrs. Kisses…

  1. I know this is such a difficult part of the journey. Probably moreso for you than sweet Maya.

    You are certainly doing EVERYTHING POSSIBLE for your Maya!! She KNOWS how much you love her, without question ! 🙂

    I @pve the @ittle “portable” outside area you nave set up for her. So sweet! She gets to enjoy all the scents of nature…and without getting wet!!

    I k ow you must be extremely frustrated with all the delays in getting her “meds from nature”! I jave seen others in the site who have used the CBD oils and the Artemisinin and they helped.

    Maybe posting a thread and asking for feedback on both would give you some additional information.

    We’ve got all.paws crossed for Maya AND Macleod! Goodness knows they could not have better care and could not be more loved!

    Sending you love and support and hugs!!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
