March 14, 2013 – 4AM - OMG – What NOW? I can’t stop moving my legs and all I can see if the ceiling and I am breathing really heavy. What happening I feel real sick again. Mommy, mommy, help, help. Mommy ran over and I can’t see her. I feel her petting me and try and calm me down. It’s not working. Help, help, help. Oh no! She is crying. It’s bad! Daddy picks me up and carries me to the door. Mommy, mommy where are you? Daddy put me down on the lawn and I feel a little better and even peepee’d. Daddy put me in the car and mommy drove me to the emergency vet. Boy, am I tired. What the heck happened to me? Daddy stroking me and talking softly to me and it feels good. We get to the vets and daddy picks me up and sets me down on the ground. Oh look! I can walk and boy do I feel much better. Oh! I can walk around by myself. Here comes that lady with the red leash again, No, No not back here again. Oh it’s Dr. Guy. I like her. She starts playing with my paws. I don’t like my paws touched. She leaves for a while. Where’s mommy? I want to go home. The doctor tells mommy I have a lesion on my brain or something like that and I most like had a minor seizure. Don’t like them at all. I see she has more medication for me. Mommy went to work and I slept all day but daddy was with me. When mommy came home she was so glad to see me and gave me lots of kisses and cookies. Daddy picked me up to put me on my bed and I started to have another seizer. He put his hand over my eyes and started stroking me softy and it passed. It was only a minor seizure. I recovered quickly.
March 15, 2013 – I am starting to feel a little better. I am taking 20mg of prednisone twice a day for 5 days and I felt pretty good and could walk and stand with no problems. Just could not stop drinking water or Peeing. Boy! Does daddy get mad when I pee in the house.
March 21 to 22ndrd 2013 – Mommy reduced the amount of prednisone to 15mg twice a day. I am not pee peeing so much. I am getting restless again and want to drink more again.
March 23, 2013 – I feel OK but felt better on 20 mg – prednisone. Oh no! Back to the vet. I do not know this vet lady either but she is nice. She said to reduce the prednisone to 10 mg twice a day and increase Tramadol to two twice a day. Maybe, it will help me sleep. Also, Take Omega 3 fish oil to help reduce the inflammation, too.
March 24 – to 28, 2013 – I am not peeing as much or drinking as much but can stand for more than a minute or two to drink or eat. I think 10 mg of prednisone to low for now.
March 29, 2013 – Mommy can’t take it anymore and called the Emergency vet to ask what she can do for me. Not good news. She said to try giving 10mg of prednisone in the day and 15mg at night and see if that helps. Maybe, she should have given me 15mg for the full 10 days and not took the vet’s advice and lower it sooner but she just wanted me to feel better. Also, there is a new vet that is a holistic vet that starting next Friday. The doctor will talk to the other doctor to see if she can help me. She called and said there are some Chinese herbs and Acupuncture that are real effective in reducing inflammation and lesions in dogs. Mommy made an appointment for next Friday.
March 30, 2013 – I still having problems standing but can walk fine. My back leg is weak and I fall when I stand for a few minutes. It tough drinking water and mommy has to help me. If I turn counter clock wise I can walk but if I turn clock wise I fall. Daddy gets so upset and yells at me and mommy. He just upset I do not feel well and I am not getting better. He misses his playmate and friend. Mommy was baking today and usually I can wait to clean up the floor after her but did not care today. Just wanted to sleep. Mommy looks sad.
March 31, 2013 – Mommy and daddy left in the afternoon to celebrate Easter and daddy’s birthday at grandma and granddad house. I just could not hold it that long. Al least the new rubber backed blanket kept my pee-pee from getting on my bed.
April 5, 2013. – Mommy stayed home, today to be with me. So I thought! I was so exited we were going for a car ride. I even check the brakes. But to only to find out I was going back to the vet. It was a pretty long ride this time. So it cannot be my regular vet. Because, he so close when I was younger I walk to the vet. The adrenaline kicked in and I am a happy dog and walking well. Who she? I have never met her before and what are those pointy things in her hand. WHAT! You’re going to stick them in me? Why? Acupuncture what is Acupuncture? Don’t like this too much. I just want to get the heck out of here. I just want to leave now! Please don’t bring me back to her again. Those needle hurt and where in for 10 minutes. Way to long. Well at least she gave me lots of cookies to help me get over it. I hope I do not have to do that again. She said I get worst before I’d get better. She was right. I feel like crap. Now what! What is the funny smelling stuff in apple sauce? I never smelled that stuff before. That is the stuff the vet gave mommy. Great it was for me. Mommy spooned into my mouth. Aw! Not so bad. They call this stuff Chinese herb not so bad in apple sauce. Guess it is OK. I finished it. She also gave me real chicken for dinner. I love chicken. I am still not sleeping and very restless. My brain just will not calm down and all I want is water. This predazone is driving me crazy. I know mommy’s trying to find a way to get me off it or lower the dose so I feel better.
