Thanks for the update— Makes me think of how when we humans don’t feel good our pets instinctively know and stay by our sides. I’m sure you’ve all witnessed it. You’ve looked into your heart and you’re doing what it tells you.

gerezerette…to my relief, they said he could possibly become aggressive and “angry” toward me with the pheno and the opposite has occurred. Altho he did throw one of his usual tantrums the other morning ( banging on the sliding glass door ) when I didn’t let him in IMMEDIATELY but that made me smile. THAT is normal :)

I’m so sorry Sondra. I know exactly what you’re going through right now. The anxiety of “not knowing”….walking on egg shells in fear of helplessly having to watch Rumsfeld possibly go through another seizure. I don’t know that it’ll ever get any easier. But this is the hand that I’ve been dealt for the last 24 years with my daughter who has a multitude of disabilities, epilepsy being just one. I’ve learned to be happy with what I’ve got but I’ll be the first to admit too….it ain’t easy. It’s true…..what doesn’t kill you..makes you stronger. I’m so glad it sounds like Rumsfeld has caring and loving doctors whom you can trust. And that’s what you need right now. Most importantly, you have your friends who give you the support, love and compassion here on your blog. Hang in there Sondra. Rumsfeld is in good hands and I think he’ll be okay. Love alone can do wonders with the healing process, ya know… :)
^ I cannot imagine what it must be like to have a child who suffers so. You are amazing. I am well aware that he is “just a dog” and that people have much more to deal with all the time. But this one is mine at the moment…
Bless you for your compassion with my little guy.

Ahh geezus. I have tears in my eyes at the moment. I lost my own 10 year old lab/basset/pit bull mix two months ago and I still expect to find his big old head on the pillow with me when I wake up in the morning. You’re in our prayers and I know nothing I can say will make ease your pain. Enjoy him while you can.
