Learning Stuff

Cooper is still hanging in.  We go to the vet tomorrow for more Immunoregulin.  It will be the last twice a week treatment.  We will go once a week after Monday, which is good, because I feel like it makes him breathe hard for about 2 to 3 hours after treatment.  I ordered the second bottle of the 4life Transfor Factor Plus.  I think I need to retract my previous doubt about the product.  My vet did find some data that shows it is at least coincidentally beneficial for distemper.  There is no way of knowing of course, but we are still neurological problem free.  I ordered the product from Judy's Health Cafe.  Please visit them if you are interested.

Our vet had an open house this weekend.  It was great!  Lots of vendors and I got to see the pretty spiffy isolation ICU area that Cooper was in.  Pretty nice.  The vet is feeling "cautiously optimistic" now.  I have to admit, I am too.  Of course, any sudden movements make me nervous!  I am almost constantly thinking to myself, "did his paw moving indicate a tick?".  I guess it doesn't help that I have MS myself.  Maybe it does.  I don't know, but since I have weird little ticks and shaking, I guess I look for them in Coop.  Anyway, we are doing another PCR test this week too.  Using urine and/or blood this time.  A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test that looks for viral DNA. To be honest, I'm not quite sure how that works, but I know it involves heat/cooling a sample.  It sounds pretty cool.

Yesterday was a political deal at BARC.  I really wanted to go, but got a very late start.  I think I slept 11 hours!  I'm interested to hear how it went.

We spent today at my townhouse in the Montrose.  It is nice to be home.  We practiced the sit command, and I think he's got it.  I guess stay and come will be next.  I need to go get an Easy Leader.  Oh... Cooper is a BARKER.  Ugh.  I can't stand that.  I hope my neighbors don't want to kill me.  I guess we'll need to work on "quiet" or "enough" as well.  Maybe he'll grow out of it or neutering will help.  We don't walk outside of my patio because I'm afraid of him being contagious.  I think the risk is minimal at this stage, but just in case.  So, maybe once we can exercise fully, it will help the barking too.
