Maya's Health Challenges

Maya (right) enjoying some relaxing time with one of her favorite cats. 

Some of you may already know that, Maya, is currently facing some health challenges.  One of those is urinary incontinence – loss of bladder control.  If you’ve been in the lobby with her, she races outside to go to the bathroom, and we have to be quick to get her there.  This condition can range in severity from occasional small urine leaks to inadvertent voiding of a large amount of urine.  At the same time, Maya is also receiving laser treatments for her back, where she has lost nerve function.  Voila!  Because of Laser Therapy on her back and nerve relief, we’ve positively affected her bladder control.  She still takes some incontinence meds, and occasionally you’ll see her in diapers, but it is much improved!  We will keep everyone posted on Maya's health journey and hope to share more successful stories in the future.
