Thank you everyone for your lovely comments and concern for my boy. The Vet called me on Friday afternoon informing me that his thyroid levels are very low and he's going to put him on a supplement. So now I'm giving Gizzy a Synthroid twice a day and he'll get another blood test in 60 days to see how the medicine is working for him.
The Vet said the hair loss may be from the thyroid problem or it may be an allergy, but we are going to take this one step at a time and are treating what we know is wrong. Gizzy is doing fine and sleeps a lot under the circumstances. In the summer he always sleeps a lot because there is nothing to do. We can only go outside for a couple of hours in the mornings and then we're pretty much locked up in here.
I was thinking of getting him a little friend to play with, but it's a decision I have to take very seriously for a number of reasons, so I'm not going to rush into this. It's just something in the back of my mind.
I apoligize for not having visited and/or commented much lately, but I have to confess I've been on FB and every time I go there, I get sucked into it for a few hours, so it's best for me to just not turn on the computer when I'm on a schedule. Besides, I think I'm starting to get into trouble over there and have to cool it a bit LOL
Have a lovely day everyone and a great week ahead. I'll be visiting all you guys very soon. Today and tomorrow are serious crochet days since I was unable to do much due to my impaired wrist and forearm that seems to be doing better...still no news about my blood work yet, but I will keep you informed.
Before I go, I wanted to share one thing that I saw on Facebook that really touched me because it also applies to my blogging friends, who have been so faithful, forgiving and nonjudgmental towards me:
"Someone asked us how we can love friends who we've never seen! We said... We have never seen God, but we feel Him! We love Him, and He is in our heart! That's why we love you! To our friends on Facebook and Blogger, who we do not know in person, but we love dearly in our hearts!"
I love you, guys! (and Gizzy does too) woof-woof!
