Update on Molly

Saturday, January 13, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

Molly continues to battle advanced kidney, thyroid and intestinal disease. Over the past couple of weeks her morning vomiting has increased. I’ve added Pepcid to her medicine regime. I give her a quarter to a half pill per day but so far, it doesn’t seem to be helping her much.

She is drinking lots of water which is keeping her hydrated but getting her to eat and taking the medicine that I mix in her food is becoming more and more difficult. Food that she likes on day, she turns her nose to the next. I am spending a lot of time selecting food that I think she’ll eat including some table food like turkey or chicken.

Molly is still social and lies on my lap for hours. She likes her quiet times but still spends time with us in the living room. Clearly the disease is slowly getting worse and my stress levels are slowly rising. We are still taking one day at a time but I’m dreading the day that there is no more time left.

Remember, your pets count!
