2) What type of flooring is being used?

3) How long have you had Jana?

4) When was her last normal meal?

6) What is the ambient temperature?

7) What is the ambient humidity?

8) What is the temperature of her hot spot?

9) What kind of heating are you using?

Thanks for your reply, Katty. I am not near my computer today so I am going to opt out in hopes that another expert can help you sooner with Jana.
