Katie Rules Again !

Katie Rules Again !
Katie is doing very well. Her problem was a double ear infection complicated by both bacterial and fungal infections. We have her on several medications and she is her old self, again. Actually, maybe better than her old self.   She is definitely hearing better and responding to even softly spoken words. Before the treatments it had gotten to where we had to almost whistle to get her attention. Now, just softly speaking her name gets her immediate attention.

We have always struggled with her earlier problems and are delighted that we have finally found something that has actually stopped them, at least for the moment.  Once the medications are finished we will have to see if they continue to stay clear.

For sure, we will have to up our dedication to actively treating her ears every couple of days instead of the usual once a week or so.  I don't know if it was the change in the climate here in Florida that made them worsen but we now have a handle on how to prevent this from happening again.

Most important, we have our Katie back in good health and happy.
