I am getting quite worried about cooper..his arthritis is really bugging him. I hear him crying whenever he tries to lay down. he is ok once he is down and not too bad when he is up but the process of laying down really hurts him..his elbows I think are the worst.
he is on the usual magic arthritic mix...cartropen injections, NSAIDS, Elavil and tramadol..and there is not much further in pain management left to go.
arthritic pain in the elbow joints is one of the most difficult to treat effectively..the front legs are such huge weight bearers.
anyway..watching and thinking about cooper, hopefully this is just an unhappy arthritic flare which will settle down in a day or two.
not seeing much improvement in river..one more week to see if the new meds/treatments help..if not it will be time to think about letting him go...worrying about river also.
hay and shavings delivery this week plus I need to do a big feed run.
plus this is the week to finally finish up Deanna's stuff..i really need to get it done but am just so busy without enough time off to get to it all. I am off until Friday so I will concentrate on getting it finally done once and for all. I now actually have the signed will, we found it last week so things should be easier now to complete.
