はなちゃん その後 About Hana - Part 2


でも食べる毎に量が増えて今日は一回に一缶ペロリ( ̄◇ ̄;)

I sometimes have charges that, right before death, suddenly start eating and walking about, so I was pretty nervous, but it looks like Hana's actually getting better!!

少し体力も戻ったのか夜鳴きも復活(⌒-⌒; )
She's got a bit of strength back, and her night whining has also made a return.

まだまだ安心はできないけど はなちゃん頑張ってます☺️
I still can't exactly relax, but she's hanging in there!  ☺️

どうしても頭が右側に曲がってしまう😥 She insists on turning her head like this

はなちゃん About Hana

はなちゃん 頑張ってます
 Our little Hana is hanging in there.

The joints in her jaw have stiffened, and she can only drink water and milk.

 If there's any viscosity at all, she can't drink it.

こんな状態で もう1ヶ月経ちます
It's been like this for 1 month now.

She's peeing every day, but only pooping about once every 3 days.
However, it looks and smells fine. (Her poop is like babies', drinking breastmilk.)
Her blood pressure and body temperature are also stable.

For a period, because of her dementia, she would start whining horribly in the night. She'd continue so much that I'd start to wonder where this strength is coming from, considering her condition. Going out on a limb, I decided to try and give her some Chinese medicine, and that seems to let her sleep soundly now.

 The areas around her pelvis, shoulders, knees, etc. seem fine, but her cheekbones are getting bedsores.

She's not getting balanced nutrition, and I doubt her immunity is working. I'm afraid of blood poisoning and DIC, but I have my worries if I try to get her admitted to the hospital for treatment.

先生と相談して 抗生剤を水で溶いて飲ませて、もし熱が出たらその時にまた考えましょうとなりました
 I consulted with the vet, and we've decided to dissolve some anti-biotics in her water. If she gets a fever, we'd need to rethink our approach.

When she was healthy, she was at about 10 kg. Now she's only around 5.

はなちゃん  頑張ってます
Hana, keep going!

It's been 10 days since Hana stopped eating.

 She's drinking water I give to her in a syringe, but just barely.

She was lost when I took her in back in August of 2009, so I don't know her exact age, but it must be somewhere around 14 or 15.

She started showing signs of dementia about half a year ago. She couldn't go potty, and she started sticking her head into narrow spaces and was unable to move.

But those things aside, she was eating properly and maintaining her weight, with no problems to her organs. Her muscle started deteriorating bit by bit, and she stopped being able to support her weight.

It's been 10 days since she stopped eating. Nevertheless, every 4-5 hours or so she lets out a big whine and starts moving around flustered. If I stand her up supporting her weight, she starts stepping in place, and then after a while falls asleep while standing. I don't know where that strength is remaining--it's pretty odd. Is it her will to live...? She doesn't seem to be in pain or any suffering, luckily.

There's a strong possibility that we'll have to say goodbye some day soon. I'll keep caring for her so she can leave us naturally, when her time comes.
