This is just a quick post to give the best mama in all the land a birthday shout-out: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! I LOVE YOU!
I also wanted to update you all and let you know that my posting may be slightly sporadic over the next few days.
Bubby dog has had a rough couple of days, especially last night, when he had his worst seizure so far. Robbie was gone at a concert, and unfortunately, Bubby tends to have the seizures when Robbie leaves. He loves his daddy and gets all sorts of separation anxiety in his old age. As tough as I think I am, it was really difficult to deal with on my own, both logistically and emotionally. After the initial seizure, he had another small one, and was up all night panting and pacing. Mama was up too. Robbie goes back on the road tomorrow for the weekend, and I'll confess that I'm worried. Bubby's seizures have been few and far between enough so far that we haven't had to to stress about them too much, but once an epileptic dog starts having longer lasting, more frequent episodes, that's when the concern starts. On top of his cancer and age (15!), it's a pretty difficult time.
I've fallen behind on work the last couple of days taking care of Bubby, and I need to try to get caught up. Posting on the blog is one of the favorite parts of my day, so I'm not going to be taking any sort of hiatus, but my perfectly scheduled every morning posts may not be so perfectly scheduled over the next few days.
I'll definitely keep you all updated!
