Beth here with an update....

As of yet the meds are not working.  
The Dr. had said it would stop it cold!  
Not yet....
however, we were only up 
once during the night and he DID sleep!  
I can't imagine the guy has 
anything left in him as he hasn't 
eaten since Thursday night at 6. 

Meds again this morning -- 
we are making him boiled hamburger and rice. 
That is what the Dr. told us to give him today. 
I hope he is hungry.  

I am certain this must be just a "flu type bug".  
I get a little over reactive as it was 
at this age I lost my Samuel, 
Remington's half brother....  
Not at all the same situation but I have 
been flooded with many feelings 
I did not care to remember....
just so you can understand 
why I am acting so strange....

I did see a twinkle in Remington's eye this morning.  
He keeps telling me to remember 
that he IS a Dr. and that he concurs with 
everything his Dr. is prescribing.  
He is such a brainiac!

Will keep you posted as to how his day goes.

Thank you again for all of the comments, 
emails and phone calls!  
It has been so nice to hear from everyone.  
We appreciate it more than you will ever know!

Oh yeah, and if Remington happens 
to cross your mind today 
a quick prayer certainly would be appreciated!

Totally understand your concern. Boiled chicken is good too so you just treat Rem and love him. He will be okie dokie in no time.

Sarge said...

Oh Beth I am so sorry to hear about Remington still having the sickies. I'm sure it is just the flu and he'll be better very soon now. In the meantime I am continuing to send my super strong Sarge vibes for healing and comfort. All of Blogville is doing the same. Hugs to all of you.

Hi Beth, We will be praying. I'm not a vet but when my dogs are sick like Remington, my vet will give them IV fluids. That treatment has helped my dogs. Poor Remington, I hope he is back to normal soon.

Kathy said...

Beth, I'm praying the big guy is back to his old self REALLY FAST!! Poor thing, the flu isn't fun! I sure hope that is what was wrong!
Big Hugs and Prayers,

Madi and Mom said...

Morning Beth, Mike and Rem...
You all cross our minds each and every day several times and we'll be saying prayers each time!! I expect the sweet boy must be getting a little hungry. I hope by now he has been able to eat a little hamburger and rice!! Getting up only once last night is an improvement.
We'll say in touch.
Love, Hugs and purrs
Madi and Mom

Gloria Hood said...

Oh Beth I can understand why you are feeling so worried now, know that we are all rooting for your beautiful boy and if he has a twinkle in his eye then hopefully he is feeling a bit better. Sometimes these meds take a little longer than the vets say they will in my experience .
Hang on in the honey

We totally understand your concern and don't think you're overreacting at all! I'm so glad you were able to consult with your vet so quickly and to start the meds - especially given that they aren't an immediate reactive.
Remington AND YOU are in my prayers today. Wish I could deliver hugs to both of you. Hang on - God is listening! And He loves both of you very much.

Ms. ~K said...

Beth, I have been without my computer this week(in the shop), but Cecelia has been keeping me posted on Rem...sending healing thoughts and bugs to all!
Feel better big boy!

harrispen said...

I don't think any of your readers will think you are over reacting when it comes to any of your fur kids health. I hope today will find Rem eating some and keeping it down.

Mom couldn't make her coffee and turn the 'puter on fast enough this am to find out how your night was, Rem.

We are praying that today is better and the burger and rice do the trick.

Please give Beth a big hug for us, our mom would react the exact same way!!

Jazzi said...

Addy has been sick too and the DR told us to give her chicken and rice and she has pills too and so far it is working!! She is gobbling up the chicken and rice,

Maggie Mae said...


I am just hearing about Remington and his problems. I haven't had time to blog or read any posts lately, just read the emails in Maggie's account and saw the updates from Cecilia.
Please know that I am praying for him and for you and Mike.

Blessings and Love,
Janelle, Maggie Mae and Max

Kelli said...

Oh Beth, you are not at all acting strange! Just reading your posts brought back all the anxiety I had surrounding Buster's black widow bite! I have been thinking of you and praying for the best for Remington! I was just talking about it to my husband this morning. I didn't know you had lost Remi's half brother at this age, of course that would cause added stress. You have lots of online supporters and prayers, and believe me, you are not acting strange!! We are all here for you! Remington is so lucky to be loved by you and Mike!!

Holly said...

Remington, please get better really soon!! We want to see that twinkle in your eye all of the time again! Sending you lots of get well hugs again and kisses too! ♥ Feel better handsome!!! ♥♥♥

JC said...

Well, I am not happy. I wish you would get him into the vet so they could do an x ray to see if there's something going on.

I've been thinking of him a lot.

Macintosh Mitch said...

Golden healing vibes, love and prayers are coming your way. So sorry to hear how sick he is. I agree with the rice and chicken, tho our vet, when our puppers have a stomach problem, suggests rice and cottage cheese. Thinking of you tons xoxoxoxo

3 doxies said...

Ms. Beth, dis is has every right to be skeered fur Remington so you has no reason to apologize. We completely understand. Heck, I was skeered and was passing da floors too.
I so hopes he can eat some today. I'll come spoon feed him if I needs too. I knows he be a Dr. and all but sometimes they needs to da patient every now and then too. Maybe not but it sounded good anyways.

Please knows dat we is prayin' furs him and we send all ya'll big hugs.

Ginny said...

Beth, I have been praying for Rem! And I definitely do not think you are overreacting! I am wondering if this is something like we humans get, the stomach flu or a touch of a gastrointestinal upset...if that is the case, it rarely lasts more then one or two days...please continue to let us know...rice is very good for stomach problems.

KT and Easton said...

Awww gee Beth, we are so sorry to hear the big guy is ailing. Please know that we have fingers and paws crossed for Rem to get better.
