I'm happy to tell you that my sick sissy, Linguini, the spotted dog, is doing better, but not much. She had a rough first night and, even though she seemed to be feeling better this morning, she had a minor relapse as the day went by. M gave her the maximum pain meds that the vet allows. She's also saving a really large juicy ham bone for Linguini, as soon as she can open her mouth without hurting.
My family and I are grateful for all your caring wishes and suggestions. The comments about a chiropractor or an acupuncturist stand out and are definitely worth trying.
Lots of health to all,
