Kristen Alderson (ex-Kiki, GENERAL HOSPITAL; Starr, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) has been having a rough time lately with her brother, Eddie Alderson (Matthew, OLTL) being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and her adorable little dog Pooka having to be rushed to the vet, but after sharing some good news about Eddie, she’s now sharing a positive update on her pup!
“Pooka’s doing fantastic! Thank you for the prayers!” she tweeted with a video of herself holding Pooka and asking if he wants to thank everybody for their prayers because he’s feeling so much better.

Alderson had taken Pooka to the vet last week where he was put on pain medication and steroids to see if that helped, but she had to rush him back to the ER when he was yelping in pain and refusing food and medication. Thankfully, they were finally able to diagnose Pooka with Meningoencephalitis.
“Scary stuff,” Alderson tweeted. “It’s been a tough weekend. Happy for his progress. He’s looking much better.”
We’re so glad to hear Pooka is on the mend, because we need more adorable photos of the pup like the ones below!
