Dr. Matt from Ft. Wright Pet Care called and told me the blood work on Bessie came back normal. That's the good news but the problem hasn't gone away. Bessie has had three doses of her medicine since yesterday and the only food she has eaten were two bowls of cooked oatmeal with some milk and sugar along with a cup-full of dry kibble mixed in. I mentioned this to the Doctor and he can't explain why Bess prefers the oatmeal but he said a bland diet won't cause any problems. His only thought was she may have a mild form of gastrointestinal discomfort that should slowly go away.
We have lots of oatmeal in the house as I make for my wife every morning.
Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes. This little girl has captivated my heart and has become one of the most precious things in my life. (almost, besides my wife, of course) and Ruff and Axl. Oh, you already know this.
