y'all aren’t gonna believe this but once again i find myself with an emergency visit to the vet because bailey fell. this time she fell off the bed. after her fall she went into a seizure, rendering her paralyzed and unresponsive.
she also lost control of her bowel & bladder and soiled herself, the pajama she was wearing and the bed she was laying on. when she was coming out of her seizure, she kept trying to lift her head and tried to stand but her back legs didn’t want to cooperate. by the time i made it to the doctor, she was responsive and making eye contact but still not walking. she even snapped at the doc during her exam. we both were happy ‘bout that because that showed that she was aware of what was going on. he checked her pupils and said they were a little off but her heart sounded good and she was able to follow his hand with her eyes. he gave her an anti-inflammatory injection and sent me home with anti-inflammatory pills.
on our way home from the vet i stopped at in-n-out for a meat patty. i figured if i had to give her a pill, i’d have to put it into something she couldn’t resist. (it did work, but just barely.)
as of this writing (monday 8pm) she is still having trouble walking. she's been asleep since we returned from the vet but we woke her to eat the in-n-out patty that she didn’t want earlier and now she gobbled it up. we also gave her some water. doc called to check on her and he was very happy to hear that she ate. we again, have to help her walk because her back legs seem to have a mind of their own. doc said to keep an eye on her eyes. if one gets bulgy, that’s a concern. also if she starts dragging her legs, i should bring her right back in. we still have to be mindful of her brain swell. i have an appointment for the morning but if she is doing fairly well, then i can cancel it and reschedule for thursday or friday.
so once again i’m asking for POTP for my little girl. she is a fighter but she could still use all the prayers she can get. thank you so much.
until we meet again my friends-
