    DefaultPrayers requested for Tina

    Tina is fifteen and a half years old. She weighs sixty-nine pounds, is a bit hard of hearing unless the refrigerator door is opened, and is a bit slow moving, but can prance with the best of them. She is also very, very stoic. Between yesterday and this morning she fell several times trying to negotiate the porch steps. Took her to the vet this morning first thing.

    Vet said her hips and knees are in remarkable good condition and that the pain is due to pinched nerves in her spine due to vertebrae becoming fused together. Vet plans to start Derramax Thursday if blood work comes back OK. Vet injected her with a narcotic pain killer that has made her quite woozy.

    Everybody at the Vet's love her and think she is a sweet old lady. The Vet says the pain is manageable and that other than the pinched nerves she is in remarkable good health for her age.
    Thanks
    LD

    Oh, how I wish for you and Tina many more years together! When they get old and fragile, they become so much more precious. Enjoy your time with her and keep her warm, happy and loved. I lost my Bessie this summer - she had just turned 15 - and my heart still aches when I think of that stubborn, selectively deaf, stoic and arthritic grande dame. We had her on Derramax and she responded well, despite how serious her arthritis was. She had problems hoisting herself up, unless she was outside and caught the scent of something rotting and putrid - then she was off like a locomotive. Your sweet Tina is in my prayers.
