Poor Nina

What's the Password?, originally uploaded by morganloomis.

Nina's kind of in a bad patch right now. Her red blood cell count is the worst it's been in over a year. Her health is a roller coaster ride, day to day she'll be energetic and then lethargic. She's been going into the vet every couple weeks for blood tests, to try to find the right dosages of the right medicines to keep her stable. Our vet is great, but no one really knows what to do for her, so now we're trying everything at once. Antibiotics twice a day, prednisone and cyclosporine ever day, and leukeran every other day. It's a pretty rough regimin, and we feel bad for her. But yesterday when we brought her home she was out chasing bugs in the back yard, so you never know.
