Change of Pills

Tali's steroids are being reduced today from 50mg to 25mg for 6 days, then they will be reduced further. I suppose she will be staying on vivitonin now, there has been no adverse affects on her stomach so far so I hope they can only be beneficial to her and maybe combining them with a low dose of steroids will give an even better quality of life.
Poor Tali does get in a tis as the vivitonin has to be given at least 30 mins before food. So first thing in the morning she gets a pill .. goes out for a wee and comes in expecting breakfast to be in her crate .. as it has been for 12 and a half years .. but it's not there and she's not impressed. When it arrives 30 mins later she just looks at it as if to say .. "well I don't want it now," but I walk away and then she eats it! I don't like watching her eat anyway as her head is tilted and she eats with one side of her mouth, it just looks so odd!
I took her out through the gate yesterday, she got to the caravan, had a wee and came back. I'll try again today, but the ball is in her court and I'll go by what she wants to do!
