Re: Kel needs some prayers please!!!
Thanks everyone - the prayers worked once again (along with the angel on Kel's shoulder).
1. She put him on Duramaxx, a drug I DETEST (I blame it for killing Too). She said they have a new protocal (half the dose Too was taking) and if it is working, I should start seeing some results by Thursday or Friday. As this point in time, I felt giving the Deramaxx a chance was far better than putting him down.
2. She said that Adequan injections needs cartilage to build new cartilage and Kel doesn't have any cartilage in his elbows. I don't know if you all will remember, but his arthritis is so bad in his elbows that it took a long time before they diagnosed his problem as arthritis because they thought he might have synovial cell carcinoma of the elbows.
3. She feels that his eyes weeping outdoors has to do with the retinal degeneration - that the bright Florida sunshine is bothering him a lot. So I'll be ordering a pair of Doggles with some sort of sunglasses for wearing outdoors during the day, and another pair with clear glass for wearing at night. This will protect his eyes not only from the sun but also from being injured if he runs into something.
Again, thanks for your prayers. I know Kel doesn't have a lot of time, but I want him to enjoy what little time he may have left, to have a quality life. I'm just hoping and praying that this will work for him.
