Hey everyone, so sorry for the delay, we were having power problems and I haven't had internet! It's been awful!
I am so happy to say that Willa is doing wonderfully. She is finally eating with gusto, and is getting a bit chubby at that! She has started really showing her playful, naughty personality, and we couldn't be happier!
We took her in for a second opinion, and the doc said that he agreed with the initial diagnosis of a severe worm infestation causing the initial hospitalization and possibly the seizure-like activity. He did not, however, see anything in her file to back up a diagnosis of Pano, and thinks that her subsequent problems were issues from the steroids.
We finished her de-worming, and haven't had any problems since, so we are crossing our fingers and hoping for the best, but keeping a very close eye on her as well.
My son is home sick today, so his service dog, Shadow, doesn't have to work. That being said, Shadow and Willa have been playing, wrestling, and just generally causing trouble ALL DAY! And as annoying as it is, I wouldn't have it any other way!
Thanks again, hopefully it is uphill from here!
