Oh boy, I am so happy....Daddy is finally home!! I am so glad we have him back. He brought us some hamburger from his lunch at the hospital. They never did find the cause and he still gets dizzy sometimes, but thank God, he is alive and can walk and talk. No straining for him, no heavy lifting. At least not until the blood clot dissolves. Sammy and I are going to make sure we keep an eye on him. Mama will have her hands full for awhile, trying to keep Daddy quiet. Again, we thank all our dogster pals for all the POTP, prayers rosettes and kind thoughts! We love you all!!!!

 

Home Tomorrow !?

It's pretty certain.....Daddy should be able to come home tomorrow. He had a 4 hour stress test today. He is eating well, but tires easily. Every test that has been done, comes back fine. His arteries are clear, his heart is fine, ears are fine, no MS. There is no explanation for the blackout and dizziness. They are putting him on a differant anti-depressant, one with anti-seizure medication in it. We hope this will never happen again, but still wonder what caused it. We thank everyfur and everyone for all their prayers,rosettes and thoughts. It has meant so much to us!!! God bless you all!!!!

 

Things are looking up !!!

Well, thank dog...things are looking better today!!! They have pretty much ruled out MS. Daddy had an EKG and that seemed to look alright. They are changing his anti-depressant. It is a combination anti-depressant and anti-seizure. So far, still no answer as to what caused the blackout, but Mama is wondering if it wasn't the anti-depressant. None of the doctors thought Daddy's current anti-depressant was good for him. He is walking a little better than yesterday. Yesterday he was kind of dragging his foot. He still tires easily and will have a stress test tomorrow, but he may be coming home tomorrow....nothing for sure yet. All those prayers, POTP, rosettes and kind thoughts must be working. We are still keeping are paws crossed and hope Daddy comes home tomorrow!!!!

 

Still no answers

We still have no answers. We went to see Daddy today and he appeared relativly fine. Tipper's Mama and family had visited and taken him down to the cafeteria in a wheelchair. He enjoyed getting out of the room. After awhile , we went up to his room again. When it was time for them to leave, Mama could see it happen again. H e looked totally drained and like it was hard to keep his eyes open. He asked for an icepack and pain meds and slept for awhile. His doctor had come later and said they would do a stress test. Mama had mentioned that Daddy's brother had MS, and that they should be aware of that. The doctor looked and said that could explain a lot of things. So now tomorrow, the neurologist will order a test for MS. We pray that is not what it is. It's not his ears and his carotids are clear. We are keeping our paws crossed!

 

What a surprise!!!

Our Daddy

We thought Daddy was doing better, but now Mama's not so sure. He asked for his shaver and a few personal things, so we thought he was doing better. He ate breakfast and lunch well, and the nurses walked him up and down the hall. He had some visitors in the morning and was a little tired from that. Supper came and he ate well, but was saying how much his head and neck hurt. Another of his work friends visited and we talked quite awhile. Mama noticed he seemed to look a little out of it for a bit and tired. After they left, he said he had gotten a dizzy spell again and felt really nauseous. He looked totally wiped out.The nurse gave him a percocet for the pain and tested his reflexes. They were fine. The doctor said there are 29 things that can cause dizziness. They are going to give him a 24 hour heart test to see if there are any irregularities. I sure hope they find out what is causing this. He now is in the neurological/ stroke/ rehab unit. These people are so knowledgeable , it is amazing...just like Tipper's Mama ! We miss him!!!

 

Update on our Daddy!

First of all, I want to thank all my dogster pals for all the generous gifts, prayers and good thoughts , it is very heartwarming! Daddy just got out of ICU this evening. He was moved to the stroke unit. They did another CT scan and MRI . The MRI was of the head, neck and I think, spine. There is a bleed at the base of the skull. The neurologist will talk to Daddy tomorrow. He did eat well today but his head and neck are hurting and he still gets dizzy. Mama said he looks very weak,
but he is talking more....a good sign! We still don't know what is causing the dizziness and blackout. We will keep our paws crossed and hope he is home soon! We really miss him!!!

 

Prayers for my Daddy, please !

Today was not a good day, Our Daddy blacked out and fell down, face first, a whole flight of steps and landed at the bottom,smashing into the closet door. He was unconscious and unresponsive. Mama called 911. Our Daddy used to be a firefighter here, and the Captain lives a few doors away. He was here in a flash and so was Tipper's Mama. The ambulance came and our Daddy started to come to, but was incoherant. They worked on him and took him to the hospital. There is a small bleed...they do not know if that was from the fall or did that cause the blackout. They will do an MRI tomorrow and a neurologist will see him. We pray our Daddy will be ok. As a result, Mama will not be posting to often, if at all , in her groups! I thank everyone for the Thanksgiving Rosettes and hope you all had a great holiday ! I am thankful for all my friends on Dogster! Bless you!
