POTP for Shiloh - one more time

Mom Kim here - I have decided that the only PLAN I am going to make from now on - 

My vision is still deciding what to do - I was off work this entire past week  
(it is doing better and I HOPE to go back tomorrow but I don't
want to say that too loud in case I jinx it)

I had my skin biopsy(nose) this past Thursday and should get the results 
tomorrow or Tuesday.

today I am focusing on SHILOH.
At first I thought maybe he was having
another flare of his IVDD but 
after checking his spine for pain-none
(this has worked in the past)
I am thinking 
he may be having problems with arthritis.
Shiloh is not exhibiting pain in any one area-
he just has trouble wanting to relax and
is pacing ALOT.
(as in none of us except maybe Diva Shasta got much sleep last nite)
After going out to potty this morning he did come back in and slept a bit.  
Eating and drinking is good too.
Thought I was giving him a 
baby aspirin last nite but 
I am pretty sure that 
is the one I found on the floor
so will try again.
I am hoping that rest, time and 
baby aspirin(?) will work to
resolve this and 
that a vet visit WILL NOT be needed.

It seems like we all have received more than our share of your prayers and POTP
but it looks like Shiloh could use some more-
PS - after looking at this picture, it reminded me that he is still carrying his tail almost up - about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way and he does wag it some - the first time he was hit with spine problems, his tail was tucked and he just about sent a vet through the ceiling when the vet tried to move it.

Oh man I'm so sorry that Shiloh is not well. I hope it isn't anything major, and that he will be better soon! Quick question are you sure that Baby Asprins are safe to give to dogs? I heard that the stuff can cause stomach problems?

Sending you all my thoughts, and strong vibes. Lots of Hugs, Francesca
