"It's been quite an adjustment with Dixie gone. She was my rock, my anchor, my security blanket. I've been hanging out a lot with OzzyCat, usually on Mom and Dad's bed. And every day when the Mom leaves for work, I hang out with Son #2 (he does graphic arts/photography from home when he's not working the occasional convention).
My semi-annual exam is coming up. Usually, we'd both get dropped off at Dr. M's in the a.m. and spend the day. The staff always would put me in a kennel across from Dixie--I was ok if I could see her. Brenda, the office mgr, called and asked Mom if she thought I'd do better with a room visit, seeing as how I didn't have Dixie anymore to calm me. So, we're doing an 11am office visit on Fri Feb 8. Mom is planning on hearing it because I've put on so much weight. From the back, I look as big as Damon once was, and I'm NOT that type of Lab... BOL.
I have become very vocal. Aarrroooooaaarrroooooo. Mom wonders if I'm not part Beagle
Finding my way with a lot of love. life goes on... one day at a time."
So sorry to hear about Billy's seizure. Dixie had "fly catching" seizures, where she's stare at things that weren't there and occasionally snap the air like she was trying to catch a fly. She wouldn't respond to her name or any noise until she "came back". Remo had mid-grade seizures, laying down on the floor, rigid legs, tremors, closed mouth breathing and wild eyes. They started when he was around 3 yrs old, and would happen when he was over-excited during the day. Thankfully they would only last a couple of minutes, and were never frequent enough to warrant phenobarb. They were scary to see, but he always bounced back from them fairly quickly.
Sending much love to the entire Sarge Mom family. So many issues. Praying you find continued strength, and things begin to smooth out. Was hoping 2013 would be a better year for all... Still hope.
Love to you all...
