Re: Taking a Chance - Say a Prayer for Us
Many prayers and healing thoughts coming Albert's way. I hope he makes it though this with flying colors and is happily eating on his own again.

- My 16 yo Gizmo had all of his teeth extracted this summer, due to
stomatitis. We tried everything: prednisone, Clavomox, Clindamyacin,
bovine lactoferrin, slippery elm, etc etc. I was petrified when he
went for surgery (even though, thankfully, he is a generally healthy
old guy). The first few days were rough for him, but the change is
remarkable. He is SOOOO much better. Here's hoping that all goes
well for Albert!! (what a trooper he is--and you, too!)
Keep us posted!
Sending good vibes,
Rebecca (And the boyz Giz, Oscar & Apollo)
