Bella is doing well; we keep her happy and comfortable. But she does have some hair loss and lumpy skin caused by calcification (a great excuse to dress her in cute sweaters). She also has the typical Cushings pot belly. I'm not posting a current photo because some people may be upset by her appearance. Of course, we love her no matter what she looks like.
