Sooo… lately I’ve been itching a little bit. OK, maybe more than a little bit.
Update on my grandma (my mommy’s mommy)…
The biopsy results are in — it’s melanoma. My mommy’s mommy has beat different cancers in her life, including non-hodgkin’s lymphoma (as a child), breast cancer, and previous melanomas. We’re all planning on this one going into her conquered history as well. Please deposit all prayers in the comments below. Thank you, friends. <3
Now for Doctor Visit: Uh Oh…
Mommy checked me lots of times to see if I had fleas, but she never saw one speck. She said my skin actually looked really good. She gave me a bath with a moisturizing shampoo, since Nala was getting a bath because of her dry skin (see my 4-15-13 post). But that really didn’t help me much. I’m still gnawing at my skin and scratching. It’s gotten so bad that no one could even pet me without me feeling itchy. *Sniff*
At my doctor’s appointment 3 weeks ago, I learned that I had gained weight! My highest weight was recorded on June 29, 2012 — I was 76.8 lbs. Because of my hip dysplasia, I was told to go on a diet. By October 27, 2012, I had lost 5.8 lbs — I weighed 71 lbs. But this last visit on March 22, 2013, I weighed 80 lbs! I had GAINED 9 lbs!
My family is baffled as to how I gained weight. The only things they can think of, is 1. I haven’t been getting enough exercise… and 2. My food was switched to Iams Weight Control back in October, 2012. I definitely don’t eat many treats, so it can’t be that! So, Mommy’s started working out with me, and I just love it, ’cause I love to play! And she switched my food to Whole Earth Farms Adult Doggie Food, which is better than Iams. Maybe I can get my weight back down and that will make my legs feel better. I sure hope so!
My usual doctor wasn’t in on that day, so I saw a lady doctor. She said my skin looked perfect. She said my itchy skin could be an allergy, so she wanted me to try allergy medicine for at least a week.
I like riding in the car with mommy.
But not when the destination is the doctor.
I can smell the doctor’s office a mile away.
Yep. We were going to the doctor’s office. *Sigh*
Jeepers creepers! I weigh 80 lbs!
It wasn’t long before they took us in.
I managed to keep busy in the waiting room, though.
Waiting for the doctor to come in, was
very agonizing! I cried like a little puppy.
Well I didn’t know when she was gonna come in!
The lady doctor was nice enough, I guess, but I kinda like my regular doctor. She checked my eyes, ears and teeth, then checked my fur. Mommy thought it was so funny that she was talking to me like a little human. “OK, so now we’re going to look at your fur, OK?” (Like I was gonna answer her BOL.) “That didn’t hurt, did it?” At least she was nice.
She didn’t find anything, but she wanted us to try Benadryl for at least a week or so and see if that helped any. At the time I am writing this (2 weeks prior), we’re not sure if the Benadryl is helping. It’s just been a few days, and I’m still a bit itchy. I guess we’ll see!
Do I want to leave? You betcha!
I met a doggie on the way out.
I didn’t get his name, though.
I couldn’t wait to get home and see Nala.
I sure hope this itching stops soon. I miss
getting scratchies from my family.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post…
