– He started Triamcinoline (corticosteroid) again Weds. night. Things improved immediately, though gradually, over the next two days.
– Saturday and Sunday and most of Monday were *very* good, with only short mini-episodes of twitchiness and overall his activities were getting back to normal
– Monday night – Tuesday: Episodes of twitchiness started to occur more frequently and last longer, but overall we were still encouraged by his overall progress
– Wednesday – morning: A period of more normal activity, but mid-morning twitchy episode started and he has confined himself to my bed. He runs back to my bed as soon as he is placed on the floor, back twitching, licking his tail agitatedly. This evening, he did not come to his meal for the first time since Saturday morning.
I am very discouraged and confused. We go to the best vet in town and they have really helped us through a lot. I am very frustrated, though, for many reasons that I will not enumerate here but some of which are obvious. It is too discouraging to keep rehashing everything.
The most heartbreaking thing is seeing Sprocket run to the edge of my bed excitedly because he sees crunchies in the hallway, but then not jump off my bed, I think because somehow movement exacerbates his discomfort, the hyperesthesia, allergic reaction, or pain related to his amputation or whatever.
I am so lost. Sprocket needs our help but at this point we don’t know what to do.
