It has been announced by a spokesperson for Chateau Ken that to the general relief of all, his lordship is making a full recovery, just in time to leave for his palace in the South of France on Sunday.

His lordship wishes to thank all those who expressed their genuine sympathy and blows raspberries at those who didn't :p

Glad you're feeling better, enjoy your holiday - from a serf stuck in rainy London.

Waking up at 4 something with a bad tooth ache, couldn't find my Anbersol, ended up taking two Vicodin, which didn't really let me sleep well, but it killed the pain, though now then I get twinges of it. Still a bit out of it :P

Oooh dear, SM! Sounds very painful. I'm told a little bit of whisky swilled round your mouth can help! I've never had toothache but am told it's like nothing else.

I apologize for being a double poster. Again.

Lolly-pup is not doing well, she's having a lot of pain in her legs and/or hips. The painkiller we got on Friday has not helped her. I had to carry her up and down the stairs and stoop this morning, it's just heartbreaking. And this is a pretty sudden, extremely fast deterioration. She's got me worried.

She's not the only one. A family I love very dearly are in a process of dissolution, and the kids don't even know yet. Speaking of heartbreaking.

Having no power to help, and watching a dear creature suffering and unable to express herself, is unutterably frustrating.

Oh Diane! I am sorry to hear that Lolly-pup is unwell. And also about that family. Hugs.

Sorry to hear about Lolly-pup and about the other family troubles. Has the vet given a diagnosis?

Vanessa, we have a painkiller and I need to get her some glucosamine/condroitin (... sp?) supplements. So far the prescription seems to do a minimal amount of good, but I have heard a few people say the supplement does help.

She's part husky and part American bull, and each of these breeds has hip issues. She's fourteen, and has always been astoundingly healthy - JUST last week she was a spry as ever, and the vet even kept saying, "you're not fourteen!" to her. This has been a really fast deterioration, I do hope it is temporary but am prepared if it isn't. *Sigh*

Diane I'm sorry! I know how difficult it is to see your animal children in pain and not being able to do anything about it. I hope she has back to her "spry" self.
