Seeing @Mandarin'sMom post kicked started me to post a Murphy update to begin 2018. Old timers club. Murphy turned 12 on Christmas. He's been holding his own -mostly blue and yellow on 2.5 units, throwing me a few pinks or near pinks on 1.75 so I guess an increase is in order. His daily cerenia and frequent ondansetron and cyproheptadine seem routine now. His appy is mostly so-so, and this morning he had a very light tan stool, and with these pinks, I'm terrified another pancreatitis flare is looming, but I'm hoping not. I had a small New Years Eve party, which included his vet, who noticed the muscles on his back legs are atrophied, she said likely due to arthritis. I need to schedule a vet visit soon, as he's long overdue for a dental (he was due for a dental about 3 months after this last one). As 2017 was the worst year of my life, I certainly have higher hopes for 2018 - for myself and all of you and your sugar babies as well.
