He's home!

We were able to bring Booker home last night and I think we are ALL relieved he is home.

Makes a huge difference.... he's on his medications and all is well.

The next big mile stone was to make sure he could pee on his own vs. having to have a catheter.

He can which is great news and means Booker Death Watch has been lowered to Defcon 2 vs. Defcon 10. Amazing how much better it is to have him home where he is happy and acting completely normal. Based on the pee thing, his life expectancy was increased and now he lives with us until he doesn't feel good anymore or something else acute happens.

Big relief... funny how it's all relative isn't it?

Tune in tomorrow for an update on Rosso's return home!

Hi Shanster,
Good to hear no catheter required and auto-pee is still enabled! I've always thought that as long as the kidneys can still function, there's definitely hope, and let's hope for the best for a good long while!

I'm so sorry! I just read your last post plus this one. I don't know what I'm going to do when our dog gets sick. He's already old.
Hope getting Rosso back will make things a little better.

Great news!! Keep on spoiling him and enjoy it! It is very rewarding to care for things and giving them a good life..you just keep on doing it:)

IVG - yes, we are hoping for the best and he is home and happy which really just makes a WORLD of difference.

Dedene - I think it's the hardest part about owning pets. They make such an impact on our hearts...

DebH - Don't choo worry! We will spoil him rotten!

I'm glad he's happy and back to normal. Who knows? Maybe he still has a long life ahead of him. Whatever happens he's a lucky dog.
