    I like to echo what most have already said. I sort of was through this when Jewel had her bout of pancreatitis. Her liver enzymes were up and they did not know the cause. After a sonogram was performed a diagnosis was rendered and treatment began. I thought we were going to lose Jewel but after the treatment she bounced back. I do hope the vets can help Jaxon but not knowing what to treat is difficult. We are sending our thoughts and prayers to you, your family, and of course Jaxon.

    I've read thru this and I'm stumped. Since I have a seizure baby... anytime a story comes up I think "get an MRI to determine if there is a brain lesion". You've already done that... I'm so sorry about your baby. Not knowing would kill me too. Prayers to you that a correction/cure is found for your sweet boy.

    I am praying for your boy,Jaxsonand you,that they find the answers. His symptoms also sound like symptom of MS.

    Sorry to hear about Jaxson and hope the Vet figures out what the issue is. I don't really read this section of the forum that often and it looks like I have missed some big events.

    Jaxson is an exceedingly handsome bully and is very loved, as can tell from your post.

    Joining the strength of my prayers for him with those of our bully lovers here, please
    keep us updated on Jaxson's reports.

    I wish there was more to be able to do, such misery & worry, sending big hugs & hoping
    his Vets find the answer straight away & meds to control the issue.

    Praying Jaxson lives a long & healthy life with you.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Thank you all for your warm thoughts, it really does help.

    Jaxson was taken out of ICU yesterday. The neurologist wants to wait a week to see if the steroids have an impact on the situation, and continue with further tests on Tuesday. We have brought him home for now where we can monitor him. His symptoms are still the same - lethargic, disconnected, weak... he will stare at the wall or just stand for extended periods of time with his head down. Eating and drinking water is a struggle, but so far today he ate pretty well. Any suggestions on what to do about eating/drinking?

    The hardest part is not knowing what he has and therefore not knowing if we can cure it.

    For now he is sleeping, and we'll try going out to play basketball when he wakes up.

    Thank you all again for your comments and stories.

    This is a better update than the last few days.

    I am glad to hear the Jaxon is home but not so happy is that you/we still do not know a diagnosis. The standing with the head down describes my Bentley from time to time. I call Bentley's name and scratch him under his chin. He usually perks up. But this has been going on since his surgery and has had very limited activity now for 11 weeks

    I guess I would shower Jaxon with love and as you mentioned play basketball...a game he likes. But I would not over do it as you are aware.
