Anakin's had a little setback
Hi everybody! Anakin's Grandmother here to give you some news. Little Ani is back in the cone of courage, at least for the weekend. I know, that stinks! Some of you might know that Carrie hasn't been feeling we
ll, suffering from a cold and cough and not sleeping good at night. She asked me to update you guys about Ani. So bear with me, I don't have all of the medical jargon and specifics, but I'll give you a summary of what happened this afternoon. Long story short.........the parasites are back and Ani had the same poop problems as before and the rectal thingy came back out. I think it isn't as bad as it was last time and they hope with rest and medication over the weekend, it will "suck" back inside. Carrie told me that it already is looking smaller and the swelling is going down. The vet did an enema to clean Ani out and that's how they found more eggs from that horrible parasite. From some of your comments last time, it seems to be a very hard parasite to get rid of and can take several treatments. Carrie said to tell you she hopes to get a good nights rest and feel better tomorrow. Carrie is exhausted and Ani is high as a kite on pain meds!! Thank you for caring about Ani and Carrie and I'm sure she will post updates tomorrow.
