Returning to normal – sorta

Josie’s monthly blood work/urine results are in: her numbers are slowly returning to normal. And the oncologist is confident they’ll return to normal because she is no longer taking Palladia.

Kinda sad when the medication that helps causes all sorts of wonkiness.

Speaking of wonkiness caused by medicine, I’m focusing on building Josie’s muscles back up or, at least preventing further muscle wasting from prednisone. How? With short, slow walks and “puppy squats” – aka a sit/stand exercise. She hates it – but loves the treats I give her as a reward. Bear is even getting in on the action.
