Latest News From Carina

I just received this letter from Carina’s caregiver….

Hi guys!

Sorry that I haven’t sent an update for a few days.  Was handling the preparation for the fair and functioning on 2 hr. sleep a night.

In my opinion Carina is doing better. She had a check up on Friday, and clinically I am told she is about the same.  Her skin is about 40% better after the baths and getting the scabs pulled off a little bit at a time. She still has the UPI (upper respiratory infection) but it hasn’t turned into bronchitis or pneumonia, so we are hoping it will hold up.  We did discover a hernia on her belly, but that is nothing we will worry about now. Her eye ulcers are improving a lot, and we are pretty sure we won’t have to remove the eye at this point.

I have been cooking her a balance fresh food diet and she is now eating very well 3-4 meals a day. She actually looks forward to it now where before she didn’t look at the dog food that much. I know the cooked food will help her build her immune system faster. It is the same food my own dogs get.
Today after I bathed her, which is the most painful part of this process, she was in her bed and I was getting her e-collar ready (I have to tape gauze all the was around the neck so the plastic doesn’t hurt her sores) I actually saw her trying to pick up the nylabone I had for her.  Due to the paralysis on her face it make it difficult for her to pick up things, but I was so encourage that she tried to do that.

I think she is much more alert. I have been weaning her off  the pain meds and bought some VERY expensive powder some one told me about that helps heal faster, I started that today, so we will see how that goes.

Since I can’t hold her because she hurts every where and movement makes her skin bleed, I just sit next to her and talk to her.  As I always do to my sick babies I sing to them ‘you are my Sunshine’ on Saturday night, I was cleaning her area and started signing it to her, she started wagging her body and wanting to get to me and gave me tons of kisses!!! I cried with joy.

My gut feeling tells me she will make it, though the Drs. told me she is not out of the woods.  I rather listen to my gut feelings

Continue to pray for her PLEASE!!……………Tina

    God bless you Tina. Sounds like Carina has improved ten fold since I first read about her. We are praying for her, for a speedy recovery. Broke my heart to first read about her.
