Kathy, you will love milk gravy.. it must be a midwest thing because Jerry's family makes it and they are all from Illinois..... I use canned milk in mine because it isn't cold, I think it being room temp helps...
Tul, sorry about your furbaby... did you maybe put something out to kill bugs and he got into it?
Jana, how old is your grandson the chef? and I saw the bibs... looks like towels with necks added.... great idea.... they are so cute.

Thank you for your kind thoughts. (crossed toes and fingers also).
I'll go read up on PepperDawgs diagnoses.
We're home, but PepperDawg is not. She was admitted for 3 nights on IV fluids (Electrolyte imbalance). Dr. Hibi is going to draw some more blood from her to test specific for Adison Desease, but he'll start her on the meds for AD right after that. If she makes it through her Addison Desease crisis, she might do well for a while on meds to treat AD.
<sigh> I just hope she'll make it through all this.

Our 13 y.o. Springer spaniel has had AD for several (7-9?) years now. She gets fluorinef twice a day and prednisone when she is stressed. The stress is 95% physical, like a run on a hot day, and we can tell she needs the prednisone when she gets shakey. The amount of fluorinef can be determined by a blood test. We do watch for any emotional stressors, like we won't leave her with a kennel or adopt another pet. She lives a very happy, normal life and you would never be able to tell she has AD. We were scared to death when the AD diagnosis was made, but it has turned out to be no big deal.
Not many people know that JFKennedy had AD. Best wishes for a speedy diagnosis and recovery for PepperDawg!! Hugs!
