Well, friends.... I don't have good news today. You see, Friday night my ouchies came back, and they came back with a vengeance.
These are the worst ouchies ever.
We've had my mystery ouchies under control since about April last year. I've had a few ouchies here and there while adjusting my steroids, but nothing major. Until Friday night... All of the sudden it hurt to do just about anything. I was screaming when I had to get up from laying down and even walking. This was, by far, the worst my ouchies have ever been. The momma took me to the vets on Saturday and talked with Dr. Mike... of course I acted like nothing was wrong when I got there so the vets would think the momma is a crazy person. But, they increased my steroids again and I'm now back to taking 20mg of Prednisone twice a day... which makes everyone worry about my heart because we started decreasing my heart meds.
Anywho... I've had 5 doses of the 20mg Prednisone so far, but I'm still quite ouchie. Not as bad as Friday night, but usually the medications help me get ouchie free quicker than this. I'm just going to relax and chill out until all my meds take control. What is super concerning is the fact that I'm on 300mg of gabapentin (a nerve blocker)/3 times a day, 3 tramadol/3 times a day and now the increased Prednisone (I was previously on 5mg, every other day). That's a lot of medications that I've been on for my tail that should make me ouchie free anyway!
Ah well... here we go again.
