I don't have a title...

So, a lot of you have been asking how I'm doing.  Truth is, not as well as we had hoped. I finished up my steroid this past Sunday and the plan was to start weaning the pain meds starting today... but, you see, I was climbing up on the couch last night and it was very painful... and this happened 3 times last night.  The third time, mom and dad tried to stop me, but I wanted to be on the couch, pain or not!

So, mom has a call in for Dr. Mike.  We'll have to adjust our plan and mom said it might be time to visit the neurologist.  I hate updating without really knowing what's going on, but I know a lot of you have been asking and I don't want to leave you in the dark. 
I got some great cards in the mail too from my dear friends Remington and Frankie & Ernie!  It was so uplifting.  Thank you so much for thinking of me!  I meant to take a picture, but I forgot.

And, speaking of uplifting... did you hear I WON Readers Choice for the Cracker Dog over at the Mango Minster?!?!?!?!  Yea, dude... and that's not all.  I also WON the title of most crazy Cracker Dog!  Ok, well I Co-Won with Taffy.  But that's totally cool with me!  Thanks to everyone who voted.  I'm very honored, but sad at the same time because lately I haven't been living up to my Cracker ways... soon, I hope!

Anyway, it's time for my afternoon cream cheese.  Hopefully I'll have something to update everyone on tomorrow.


  1. Coooooorbin! I so glads to see your face...and not sleepin!
    I has still been thinkin of you and all worried withs da sckness cuz of what you has been dealin' withs. It may not be much news but it's nice to knows what's up. You will still be in our thoughts.

    Congrats on your win...dats so fantabulous!

    PS: Can you hurry up and gets betters cuz I could use a beer.

  2. Good to see you, Corbin, but we are sad that you aren't doing better. We hope the neurologist will have some better solutions for you. Pain is not fun at all.

  3. I am sad to hear this news Corbin. I was hoping you were feeling better. I hope you start to feel better soon. Know that we are thinking of you.

  4. Corbin, we are sorry hear that things just seem to stay the same for you. We have tried to follow your entire story but may have missed a few things here and there. We were curious if you have a Canine Chiropractor in your area. We had some great success with some of Cleo's back issues when she started going to a Canine Chropractor. She had a few adjustments and even had some accupuncture. Just thought I would suggest it just in case you have one local, I do so hope and pray they find out what is causing him so much pain soon. Poor Guy we miss his cracker dog stunts. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

    P.S...One day when we grow up we will be real cracker hounds like our friend Corbin. :)

  5. I'm so sorry that the treatment plan didn't work as well as it was supposed to. I hate to think of you being in pain. I've thought a lot about you, wondering how you are. I'll continue to keep you in my prayers and my boys will keep their paws crossed for you.

    I hope Dr. Mike and/or the neurologist can figure this out once and for all.

    In the mean time, please do update us once in awhile, even if there's not much to say. We just want to know that you're ok.

  6. Hey Corbin!
    Wow, I'm so glad to see you! I've been worried something fierce. That neurodoc will be able to fix you up in no time. I'm just sure of it. With all of the healing vibes you're getting from me and all of Blogville, you'll be 100% very soon. Congrats on your big MM win! :)
