cody bears profileyesterday was bath day!  so know i have two very soft, cute dogs at home.  we’ll see how long that lasts.

people who have known cody bear for a couple years have been astounded when they see him lately.  he’s never weighed so much!

he’s only barfed twice in the last month, and….i don’t know….something is just different.  yes, he’s bigger, but his fur is fluffier, he smiles more, his face is consistently …..something.

i don’t know how to describe it.  he usually gets this look for a few days during flare ups:  his eye’s look worried and his face looks…green about the gills.  without actually being green, of course.

it’s been a long road, this gastroparesis.  and i know there will be flare ups.  he’s been on medicine all his life, managing it, but i have to say, last year we begin the holistic side of it and i just feel like we’ve turned a corner.  a very good corner.

i’ve hesitated writing this post…because i stupidly do believe i jinx things.  but it must be mentioned….cody bear is HUGE!

anyway, thanks to everyone who has ever offered support to me and my cody bear during his bouts of illness.
