Glad to hear she is doing so well. I do hope it continues. I know how much this means to all of us that Tillie gets better. We are all rooting for her

Sounds like things are getting a bit better with Tillie and I can tell you are happier and a bit relieved as you are back to posting on the threads, Tammy. I'm so happy for all of you, especially Tillie. Keep your chin up. She'll get there!

thanks! yes, we are all getting more postive by the day!

Today everyone wanted to go to the snow. I don't feel Tillie is ready for that yet, OR to be left at home alone for that long. And she TOLD us so, by repeatedly jumping in the van as they were getting ready to go! Like oh HECK no, you are NOT leaving me behind!! I had to PROVE to her that *I* wasn't going by sitting in my recliner while they all got ready and packed up! After my husband and kids left I decided to surprise Tillie by taking HER 'bye-bye'!! She was SOOOOOO excited, yipping, thrashing her toys around, hopping all over. THAT's my girl!! Man, I have missed her.
Anywho, we just went uptown to make some returns to a couple stores where she rode happily in her stroller occasionally getting loves from some stranger that just couldn't resist her. It was so wonderful to spend one on one time with her again. It's probably been nearly 2 months since we have gone shopping together... she just wasn't herself and I didn't want to push her.
I know we have a long way to go, along with lots of medical testing, but I have definitly seen her turn a major corner in the past couple of days and am SO very glad I listened to my gut (which is ALWAYS right) and not to my husband.

That is FANTASTIC, Tammy!!! Just be aware that from what I've been told, you can have a UTI AND crystals at the same time. The antibiotics will clear up the infection, but if you don't get to the root cause of the crystals, the problem will keep coming back. So don't let up on getting to the bottom of thing!!!

Glad to hear she is feeling so much better, though!!!

Sounds like Tillie has made some huge steps!

It's not just your gut Tammy. You know her better than anyone. You saw such a change in her personality and never second guessed yourself! Bravo for being a great mom!!

lol, thanks everyone!
YES, no worries, we will surely be getting to the bottom of this. Her vet wanted to see her for more testing after the 2 weeks of the antibiotics.

lol, ya, she is feeling SO much better, while typing this post, she has stolen 2 polly pockets from under the Christmas tree and is now shredding a paper towel she thinks she sneakily snatched from me. (I let her have it. lol)

I have a sinking feeling we may need to change her diet. everything that I've read says that that is how/where the crystals form, because of a high protien diet... although BOTH her vet AND Sabine say NO, this is not what is happeneing...?

Anywho, thanks for always being there for us, crisis or celebration. Love you guys
