First of all - thank you all so much for all of the crossed paws and POTP! It really and truly does work!
The good news is that I don't have Lyme disease - yes, I was tested again. I saw my vet on Monday morning and he gave my leg a very thorough work out. He thinks maybe I could have a sprain? Mom and dad both think that the disease is progressing but they really don't like to think about that too much. It makes them sad.
I got another small taper on my prednisone and I'm taking gabapentin again. The first time around, I had no reaction to three pills per day. This time it's making me loopy and drowsy and very unsteady on my feets. I keep bashing into things and I can't come downstairs by myself. The peeps are very afraid that I'll tumble down and land on my head.
The better news is that my vet called yesterday and I can decrease the number of times per day that I take gabapentin if the loopiness continues.
I have to rest lots and no walkies for me until I improve.
