My best friend is in hospital after a major operation, his mother is in hospital unable to walk.

Now this morning my gorgeous dog has had another stroke and he is in doggy hospital.

I was going to have him put to sleep but am waiting 24hrs just to see how he is ..

The house is so empty

Just me and a very indifferent cat


6pm the vet rang to say he has just eaten 3 bowels of food (THREE??!!)

and been taken outside.  He is still very unsteady on his feet but she sounded optimistic

I have to ring in the morning but unless he is worse I can bring him home .

I am nervous because last time he was all over the place the first night and became paralyzed over days

But this is not as severe as last time that's for sure ..

I think he is going to be ok ..  :)

UPDATE 19th Feb

Vet just rang my gorgeous dog is doing well still unsteady but better and being his lovely gorgeous friendly self. I am bringing him home in just a few hours. One down two to go .. Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

My gorgeous dog is home .. all unsteady on his feet like a bit drunk. But he was so happy to see me, his basket, his garden , his special front room bed and even his disinterested old cat - he calls friend!

Frito does *happy dance: for gorgous dog!

i feel that you are a very strong person.....<br />
<br />
will pray for you........tonight

thank you trailguide ((hugsbackatya))


very true .. it was a disaster when I could access it at work

Sometimes it is too good of a distraction...

That is the best and nicest thing to say Arorin <br />
<br />
I may well get daft on here later .. Ep is a very good distraction ;)

People handle things so differently. Like the normal reaction is im so sorry are you ok? but it starts to get really old pretty fast for me. I have tried lightening the mood, but only some people take to that. <br />
<br />
All i can really do is say i am around if you need a distraction.

You cant be more tactless than me Arorin <br />
<br />
I always try and say something, especially after a somone has died, but it is so difficult to know what to say ..<br />
<br />
Again I have got better but it doesnt come naturally

I usually make people mad, or sad trying to figure out what i should say in these types of deals. I don't mean to do it, but i guess it just happens. <br />
<br />
Does suck to lose a pet, especially a dog imo.

Thanks Arorin .. it is impossibe for anyone to know what to say <br />
<br />
It is just how life is <br />
<br />
I am never good with the pain in life <br />
<br />
But seem to be much calmer and accepting of how things are than I have been in the past. <br />
<br />
My dog is old and ofcourse has to die sometime. I first asked the vet to have him put to sleep but she said lets just see how he is overnight and I sgreed.<br />
<br />
Now having had time to think I am prepared to look after him for next week and see if he recovers like before

There is nothing i know to say to this, but i am around if that helps any.

Thanks lala .. xx

Honey, Im so sorry. I hope the pain goes soon, for all of you x
