during dr w's exam, bailey went into a seizure. OMG, what a horrific thing to witness. all we (hubby & i) could do was watch in horror, as doc injected her with dose after dose of medications and fluids. after what seemed like an eternity, she came out of it. when she was stabilized from the seizure, she was admitted to his icu.
doc called us last night to update us on her condition. she does have motor skills, so she's not paralyzed and she can make eye contact, so she's not blind. so dr w's main concern is her skull fracture, which is quite bad and the swelling in her brain. the cracked vertebra is on the back burner for now. the brain is more important. he said she was drinking sugar water and she was more alert. this tells him the medication might be helping to reduce the swelling in her brain, however her legs are still uncoordinated. she's still in critical condition but at least she's stable.
i can't believe the outpouring of love and support that we have received from y'all. i want to say, from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you. it means the world to me.
beautiful surprise from chewy.com
as i write this, i am trying to sound calm, cool and collected, but i have tears streaming down my face and i am wrapped in bailey's blanket so i can feel her near me. it's terrible to wake up and not have her snuggled up at my face or laying across my neck. i don't know how long she's going to be away or even if she'll ever come back to me. all i can do is wait, hope and pray.
