So. Because Allegra hasn't been eating well, I had substituted in canned food for her dry food. I've been making meatballs out of her food and she is able to take them out of my hand and (mostly) eat them okay. She still isn't moving her tongue, so it's messy. But, she's eating more food. Weight loss is another issue...right now, she's at 36 pounds. Gotta get some weight back on her. She's a small girl, anyway...weighed about 42-44 pounds in her prime. As I said, a small girl. (But beautiful, right?)

I'm taking Allegra to work with me tomorrow...she'll be looked at by two services...internal medicine and neurology. The neuro service will want to see how she eats/drinks. I am very curious to hear what they have to say.

I'll let you know what I find out.

Not much sewing going on this week, what with my worrying about Allegra & the fall season of television shows starting. I missed the NCIS premieres, but it couldn't be helped. DWTS, ya know. Saw "The Good Wife" Julianna Margulies. Saw "CSI:NY" last night...that was a good one. "The Mentalist" is on tonight...really love Simon Baker!

I did manage to sew this block. Today. Amanda Jean, over at crazy mom quilts, asked for help making blocks for Quilt of Valor quilts. I volunteered to make a block and this is it...I like it much better than my 'practice' one.

I hope they can find out her problem and she can start feeling her old self. Great americana block. Don't get me started on season premiers, tonight I taped on station and watched the other, but the other two had good shows too, ugh. Sure glad I have on demand;)

Jacque - is there some type of doggie "Ensure" or something she can have to help get nutrition in her?

This may sound weird but my Dad had some of these same problems - with the flap thing - weird how animals and people can get the same type of things!
