To my incredible relief and Boo’s great joy, Sam arrived via Fed Ex yesterday morning. I had to restrain myself from hugging and kissing the delivery man. Instead, I just signed for the package and ran inside to find Boo. When he saw Sam his face lit up. He grabbed the device and began happily chatting about a number of things, a trip to Taco Bell, the weather, how he was feeling, etc. Apparently, he had a lot to get out. Last night he slept well and deeply for the first time in a while. We have almost titrated down off the Topomax and are on Fycompa for seizures. So far, so good.
This will be a brief update as I have 2 sick dogs. Max has a mass on his spleen. As I type, his vet is trying to find a surgeon who will remove it. Jack Jack ate something he shouldn’t have and is in the animal hospital. Nothing is blocking his stomach, though there was something in there earlier. He is, however, refusing to eat. The vet wanted to run some blood tests to rule out anything like pancreatitis. So, this is an expensive and tiring week for pets. At this time next week, Mercury will be moving into her new abode at Oklahoma State University. We are busily scurrying around getting her ready to go and she is having last minute visit with local friends.
Boo, Sam, and I hope you all are well. Please send out some good vibes for my dogs. Peace, and we will talk soon.
