Okay but only because you're begging!
(I've actually been a bit under the weather dealing with spontaneous nosebleeds -- had one procedure done that was literally a stop gap -- back to doctor next week to decide next step.) Just taking things one day at a time with Miss Maggie so today ... was a good day! She has eaten some ricotta cheese, some ground beef with beef broth, some canned chicken and even some dry senior Evo -- a little bit of each -- all of which makes for good poops!
The mange is creeping back into her face -- switched to medicated shampoo and cream rinse that both have cortisone in them and they are helping with the itchy skin elsewhere plus she is still getting a cortisone injection once a month -- not good for the Cushings but it is keeping her more comfortable. No seizures in a month but tremors started again last week. Here is a quick pic taken tonight -- weight three weeks ago was 20 lbs. (hard to believe she used to be overweight!):

Thanks for the update Judy! Mags is beautiful, as always, and it sounds like she's doing so well. Keep it up!

And I hope you feel better soon, Judy!

Sweet Maggie has the most beautiful face and eyes! Glad today was a good day!

I hope you feel better soon Judy! I had the same issue back in August, spontaneous nosebleeds...several times a day. I had a couple of cautery procedures, and a rhino rocket for several days, but the bleeding continued. I finally had to go in for surgery, and all has been good since. I hope you won't need surgery, but if you do, it really wasn't bad at all. The cautery and rhino rocket were MUCH worse!

Glad you and Maggie are plugging along - and hope you get your nosebleed troubles sorted out soon (I don't really want to even know what a rhino rocket is...). Maggie is as beautiful as always, and a big paws up from our pack for her good poops - we all cheer for good poops!

Great to see Maggie is doing 'well' considering her complaints. You are a good mum to her.
Hope you are better soon, nose bleeds are horrid things.

Re: Hey Judy! -- Update

Folks: One reason I don't do frequent updates on Mags is that it really is a day-to-day thing. She is at the vet for the day after having eight (!!!) seizures last night. I have a wonderful vet and vet tech who don't hesitate to help me after hours so I was able to avoid a trip to the emergency hospital. The seizures finally stopped after a heavy dose of valium and then another dose in the middle of the night. This morning all bodily functions were working fine which was very, very good and she let out some squeaky howls at the vet's office. The vet will call after examining her so we can discuss what, if any, other tests should be run. We aren't doing any more CAT scans/MRIs but he may want to do another pre-/post-bile test to see if her liver function has deterioriated even further. I expect to bring her home this afternoon and we'll keep plugging on! Think good thoughts for Miss Mags and her very tired Mom!

Re: Hey Judy! -- Update

The rest of you cans see why Maggie is Bagel's Valentine. From Bagel's perspective, she is a sweet young delicate creature that has won the rowdy old western hunting cowdog's heart! As allways, good thoughts and love to Miss Mags and you.
