Well it is day two that we have known the diagnosis...and so far today has been a good day..mamma shut the door to my crate last night..thats a first but it is for my safety..mamma worried about how I'd feel about that but for last night anyway..it was ok with me..I was good and slept like a rock..but at 5:30 this a.m. I barked up a storm until my mom got up and let me out so I could go potty on the pee pads....these are good things because this is what I normally do. Mamma held me for awhile after I did my business...I don't like to be held before..never have..I mean if ya gotta go..you gotta go...mamma is trying to be more "normal" around here today and not so sad...daddy too...so mamma got busy doing her house work and laundry and caring for my siblings and every time she would go by me she would stop and pet me...hold me some times , pet me, kiss me on top of my head and tell me she loves me...remember when I first came here..that's what she did...I guess I'll go outta this life the same way! :) I guess as bad as this sucks there are things to be thank ful for....like dieing smothered in hugs and kisses....I do sleep alot or rest..alot! Doggie Dr. told mamma for her own good to keep a running journal of how many hours I am up and having any quality of life..mamma guessed out of 8 hours, maybe 2 hours...the dawgy Dr. said very gently,"Well two hours isn't very much you know so maybe if thats all ...." well you can fill in the blanks. Mamma isn't "there" yet in her mind because I have always slept and rested alot....we have realized though that I probably had dementia ever since I first came here to live...I have always crawled on my bed or in my crate and purposely starred at the wall...the people always thought I was either just ignoring them...(which I am either way you look at it..BOL) OR it was because I have sooo little eye sight left in my one eye. I also do things like run away from them some times when they try to be nice to me....now we know why...I'm just disoriented alot of the time. Some times I won't eat unless I can eat out of moms hand and the dawgy Dr. said thats just part of this dementia thing...like maybe I couldn't find the bowls....it was really hitting my mom yesterday that my grandpa (her daddy) is in the nurseing home with dementiaa and she has had to watch him waste away....she dosen't want to watch me waste away...and she probably won't. She needs to love me enough to let me go before that happens. Hey those tranquillizers the dawgy Dr. gave me...they don't work so good for me....but the other pill for cognitive stuff...well we have a "little" hope there...this a.m. I have acted like myself for the most part..well we will go for now..mamma has stuff to do but she will try to remember to come in here tonight and write.
