Hi All--Have not posted in awhile as things have been going good. Though I do keep up on readings.

Well Saturday night we had a bad night--first since after surgery. Very restless and whimpering. Could not figure out what the problem was but after giving her some Tramadol she calmed down and slept for the night after 3:AM. So scheduled a vet appt. for today for a check-up. It's been 4 months 1 week since surgery. We decided to do some chest X-rays for a comparison. She passed with flying colors!!  Still no signs of any lung mets so that is terrific news. We decided she must have slipped on her ramp as it was a wet night here and pulled a muscle. She's going to be a muscle relaxors for a few days and decided as well that her heavy breathing has been from possibly allergy types of things as she does have a grass allergy in summers. And with her age and pollution residue in lungs from city living she just has a harder time with oxygen intake. She will be on a bronchial dilator for a week.

So for 13 yrs 4 months old she is doing great!! Was even playing with her toy before leaving for doctor.

Hugs to all

Stacy and Laura

Glad to hear it wasn't anything serious and that her lung x-rays were clear!Smile Hope the muscle relaxant and bronchial dilaters help. Stacy is so adorable!
