Friday Flare-Up

Hi guys.  It's me, Mitch.   I went to the vet yesterday because mom and dad knew that I was hurting and needed help.  My myositis is flaring up again.  I have been drinking lots and lots of water and the water in my dish has been all foamy and full of saliva.  Mom and dad now are thinking that this is an indication that a flare-up is coming.
My beard is all wet.  I just got another long drink.

The vet gave me a prescription for an anti-inflammatory and antibiotic for 10 days and he also gave me prednisone for a whole month.   He checked my temp and I was running a fever and he also gave my mouth and jaw a good work out which didn't feel so good and he also stole my blood and gave me a shot.  I gave my vet a nasty look when he jabbed me with the needle.  That hurt! 
I'm feeling a wee bit better today but not a whole lot yet
 Molly and I helped mom make pumpkin cheesecake squares for the Halloween pawty that mom and dad are having here tomorrow.   We've been doing a lot of clean up to help out but we know that they'll be meanies in the end and not invite us to the pawty. 
I'm taste-testing the pumpkin.   You probably can't tell but I'm taking it very gingerly off the spoon.   My jaw still hurts. 
 Doesn't this look so yummy?  Molly and I are hoping that mom shares a smidge of it with us!
Happy Friday, everybuddy!     I hope my next prednisone pill makes me feel a whole lot better.

Love ya lots♥
