well this isn't exactly the blog post i had intended for today. it was supposed to be a celebration of the day we found little bailey. she came into our lives 4 years ago. now instead of celebrating her rescue, we are pacing the floor wondering where this journey will lead us.
the only time she can be left alone is when she's asleep in the playpen. and even then, we have to be right there because when she wakes up she tries to stand. tumbling around the playpen she could further injure her fragile skull, so we pick her up.
before her accident, she could sleep in our arms for hours on end, but now she gets antsy if we are sitting down, so we pace. it's the only thing that'll keep her somewhat calm but it's torture on our backs. she's only been out of icu for a week but it feels like a month. i can't wait till monday when we go back to the vet. he might have some words of wisdom on how to handle her anxiety, other than increasing her diazepam.
we had to cancel thanksgiving yesterday. bailey requires so much time and energy, there was no way i could have anyone here and prepare a meal. i just popped some chicken in the crock pot and that was our dinner. hopefully things will be better by christmas. fingers crossed.
until we meet again my friends-
