Here are a few more pictures of Addie! She is growing so fast! We are still in the process of potty training her, but it is going a lot better. We are understanding eachother better. Last Wednesday Kenny took her out around 2 in the morning, came back in and went right back to bed. I was up getting a drink of water and she was out with me. I noticed a few bumps on her back and got Kenny up (this was the night he was supose to have 8 hours of sleep because of his polygraph test) to check it out. We thought she was having an allergic reaction, but were not sure, untill we looked at her face. Her left eye was almost swollen shut! Kenny called an emergency vet number and they told us to give her children's benadryl. So off to the store I went! I slept with Addie in the living room, well she really didn't sleep. At 6 she had hives from her neck all the way down her back legs, she had been crying for the past 4 hours and was very uncomfortable. I called an after hours vet and she said to bring her in. We were home around 7:30 and she slept for a couple of hours from the shots. I gave her more benadryl at noon and was monitoring her breathing to make sure she was still alive! From 2 till 6 all the hives had come back and she seemed in more discomfort than earlier. We took her back to our normal vet and gave her a strong steroid shot and some oral medication. By the next morning all of the hives were gone! I slept on the air matress the next two nights so she would not disturb Kenny.Kenny had to rescheduled his polyraph 'cause of lack of sleep. Her and I are both catching up on our sleep!:) All is well now and she has most all of her energy back!
