Update on Jammies

For those of you who know Debbie (mom to Jammies) I just wanted to let you know the latest. Recently, Jammies who has had significant heart problems had been having coughing problems. And Deb was suspecting her heart was the problem. Anyway finally after seeing a heart specialist here is Deb's letter to me tonight. I gave Deb **** for not getting on the forum more often and I hope you will echo my sentiments. Here's her letter...

This is what the discharge papers said. Her previous diagnose was Tetrology of Fallot: not left heart enlargement. Essentially STABLE disease at this time with no evidence of decompensation.

Her cough is likely NON-CARDIOGENTIC. Jammies cough does NOT apprear to be associated with heart disease at this time. Other causes of cough can include infectious causes.

We have Doxycycline tablets to give her twice a day for 10 days. This is the antibiotic. We also have cough medicine to give only if needed.

Jammies doesn't have to go back for 6 months unless needed. I told the dr. that I know she can't predict the future, but would she be surprised if Jammies lived another 2 years. She said, "no, not at all. This dog is Miss Personality and you would never know by how she acts that their is anything wrong with her".

I am so relieved!!!

I need to follow up with Sabine because our regular vet said he is VERY happy with Jammies' weight!

Thanks for your concern!

Debbie, it is good to hear from you...and Jammies (one of the cutest names ever!) I hope the cough will clear up soon and I'm so happy to hear she is doing well. I bet you are going to get to enjoy her for a long long time!! Sending prayers that she recovers fast from the meds. I would love to see a new picture of her. Has she gained or is she still small?

I hope Jammies recovers from her cough soon and I'm glad to hear she is doing well otherwise. Yes, a recent picture of her would be wonderful.

Linda, so sorry you have Lyme - for the third time??? Bummer! You must be a tick magnet!
