02/23/13 – OMG!@!! What is happening to me? I am dizzy again and can’t stand or walk. My eyes are rolling back and forth by themselves. I feel sick to my stomach. Mommy, mommy help I sick – real sick. Mommy and daddy come over and look at me. MMM I know that look. I am really sick again. I did not beat Vestibular or that inner ear infection last summer. Here we go again I keep rocking back and forth. I am so restless I just want to get up and drink water. Where’s my water? Yeah, yeah I want water the lapping so how makes me feel better.
Back to the vet but I was just there two weeks ago and he said I was fine. Even the vet looks sad. I just don’t know why I cannot feel better. Mommy and daddy just thought it was my arthritis and old age but I have been sick for a while. They try different medications to help me feel better but they were treating the wrong problem. The vet thought since, I was having issues with standing and getting up and unable hold bowels until I got out side it was because, of my arthritis pain. NOT!! He just does not know what is wrong with me. Antibiotics worked before maybe they will again. I am starting an antibiotic (Baytril) again for 3 to 6 weeks.
02/24/13 – I am getting worst and cannot sleep just want to drink water and walk around but can’t get up without help. After, I fall a few times and get help getting up I can walk but cannot stand in one place to long without falling. Why is my ass wet? How did I get into my water bowl? I always end up in some weird position or in my water bowl.
02/25/13- Monday – I am no better. I can sleep during the day but not at night. I am just so restless and uncomfortable. Don‘t want to eat by myself. Mommy needs to give it to me. I want people food – chicken.
March 1, 2013 – I must be getting worst because, mommy blocked off parts of the bed room and let me sleep on my bed when they went to work. They have never done that before. How embarrassing mommy put a diaper on me.
March 2, 2013. I am somewhat better but not good. It has been a week since I have been on antibiotic and no real improvement. When I get real tired I cannot stand at all but I am eating al little more and a little less restless. Very fidgety and can’t settle down. Weird – I can sleep on the couch all day and not restlessness but at night on my bed can sit still.
March 3, 2013- I have no real improvement. Maybe, the antibiotics are not going to work this time.
March 4, 2013 – Mommy looks very upset and crying a lot. All she does it check on me and kiss me and tell me to be strong. She said I know you can beat this again. Your strong. I love you very much. You are my heart.



March 5, 1013 – Mommy came home and I made it the whole day without peeing or pooping in the house. I feel a lot better. I can walk around and not fall. I ate by myself and slept on the couch for a while without having to get up for water or walk around. Mommy thought I may have had something else and was very worried. I actually saw her smile today and she gave me lots of kisses. I do not feel restless any more. This is the first night in weeks I slept until 1:0am (my usual want to eat breakfast time) and went back to sleep until daddy had to go to work at 5:30am. He actually had to wake me up to go outside. I may be on the road to recovery again. It just took much longer this time. I took the antibiotic a week and half before it started to help. Mommy just never gave up on me and God. She prayed all the time and her prayers have been answered and I am getting better.
March 6, 2013 – I am eating and walking better and not as restless at night. I got Daddy to let me sleep in the corner section of the couch. It just like my own little cave. They must have thought I looked cute because, they started taking pictures of me again and giving me cookies for being a good dog in the picture.
March 11, 2013 Monday- Slept pretty good and only wake up once to eat. Not restless any more. WooHoo I was able to be out of bed this morning all by myself. Look I made it to the water bowl and drank water without falling. I feel Ok today. I am still having problems walking and staying upright on the Pergo floor but good on the carpet. Good thing I got up early because, daddy forgot to set his alarm to get up for work.
