First, thank you for all your wonderful and heart-warming comments about our recent losses. We really appreciate it. I figured we were overdue for some good news, so here goes!
Last Friday, when Alayne took Sparky over to see our internal medicine specialist, Dr. Tanya Donovan, she also took Widget and Dexter as well. Dexter was in for a follow-up on his front leg lameness, and Widget was in for her annual geriatric screening.
Dexter's disc issue is, fortunately, getting better and at this point doesn't require anything more than some anti-inflammatories.
In the the photo above Dr. Donovan is doing part of her physical exam of Widget while Dexter looks on. (Sparky was also in the room at the time but behind Alayne.) Widget's "dashboard" readings were all superb -- her organs looked good on ultrasound, her chest X-ray was nice and clear, her bloodwork was perfect, and her heart condition hasn't changed at all from her last echocardiogram. She'll continue on heart meds but the lack of any deterioration in the past year was such a relief.
In other words, she's good for another 10,000 miles!
