Mia's Memoirs

Oooh Baby it's Cold Outside!

I am not happy about this January-like weather when we don't even reach zero degrees! I am a warm weather chickie and this just isn't cutting it. I have also recently had two episodes of syncope. One was very mild and I briefly passed out and the other was one of the bad ones. Mom asked last year if they were worsened by the cold weather but they didn't think it should effect me. Here we are back in the cold weather and I have had two. As long as they aren't a persistent problem, mom will bring it up at my next cardiology visit but if they start regularly again we will have to go back sooner and have a re-check and possible medication tweak.

We still have no news on the house hunt but we're hoping to hear something soon. Still could use some good vibes on the house and for me


PS - Other than the couple episodes, I am still doing well :)

Oh no ! I hope and pray that this doesn't happen again
is the cold weather the cause ?
Ursula my sister suffers during winter time , and here our winter is mild - a couple of weeks ago she got an herniated disc in her neck and she is wearing a neck brace ; mommy thought that today she would be released but the vet denied - she has to wear it for one more week
Please keep us posted about Mia and we will keep her in our thoughts and prayers
love and hugs from all of us

Oh poor Ursula! I sure hope the vet says she is good to take it off next week. Hugs and prayers

Mom and I aren't as convinced as the vets about the cold weather. Last year they were really bad in the cold but I wasn't diagnosed with the pulmonary hypertension until late January so we can't be for certain other than to have two new ones recently when the arctic blast came in. It just seems the cold may play a part. Maybe we will have a mild winter.

sorry to hear about your two episodes, hope that was the end and it doesn't happen again. We agree with you about the cold weather, it sure has put a halt to going to the dog park and mom and dad don't even let us stay outside for more than 10 minutes! Stay well and stay warm Mia!

We are sorry to read about your latest episodes. We are sending you some POP that those episodes will not come anymore.

We are having pretty chilly weather too - but not as cold as yours. I don't want to stay outside very long brrr.

Love -
