"It's been a long road with Osha, she's been well on her road to recovery with weight, skin, hair growth and so forth, her immune system and blood work was finally in the normal range, and It was decided that we start treatment for mange. The past 2 weeks have been heartbreaking for me as Osha started with a bad reaction that has been spreading rapidly. Steroids were started with other meds to gain quick control. It is imperative that she does not lick or chew! This has been a major chore. Collars of every kind have been purchased. Deafness creates Anxiety with all these devices, disorientation adds to her depression. Sores can't be covered. Osha is able to reach as a contortionist. I finally came up with a device. As funny as it looks, it has worked. Dr. Fuller is very happy with the healing of last weeks horrid outbreak, but new spreading continues rapidly. Scraping shows mange is dying at a fast rate, perhaps to fast, spreading strong reactions through a body that has already been through so much. Medication reactions is also still a consideration.There's also concern with her liver and not eating. I have cooked "everything" as well as syringed Baby Formula. I am relieved that Dr. Fuller will now Hospitalize Osha for a week. I have been extremely upset, but Dr. Fuller managed to put a smile on my face as together we had a good laugh over my contraption for Osha .... but hey ... if it works, that's all that matters ..... He will be using it. Please send prayers this week, we hope to get positive answers and healing!"
Osha has so many folks pulling for her, I KNOW she'll get over this bump in the road and be ready for her furever home real soon. And isn't her foster momma super creative to come up with this alternative for a cone?? It looks like Osha's having her furs done, BOL.
Please everybodys keep your paws crossed and keep Osha and her foster momma in your thoughts. I'll let you know more when we have updates!
