Thanks guys you are so sweet.
Thanks for your continuing candles. They have set off cleansing and healing tears again as we are going through a rough patch at the moment. The thought of you still supporting us even though we do not always post about our daily tribulations is just amazing. Your warm fuzzies are being received and we are so grateful.
Tia continues to be up and down with being off her food with diarrhea issues. We can have an off night but be fine in the morning or vise versa. She was up last night and talking since it was 24 C / 75 F here overnight. Although she settled quickly I was wide awake for the next 2 hours. It will be 35C /95 F for most of this week. The heat increases her partial seizure activity and restlessness so we are juggling her meds and giving her multiple baths. However even a slight increase in her meds effects her ability to walk. Sigh.
I feel like I am on the dreaded ghost house ride at the fair. Sometimes the concern and tension that you feel turns out to be nothing, sometimes the panic makes your heart race, for the most part it is ok as she does settle, but who knows what is around that next corner and when will our luck run out.
(Just to clarify I do not like carnival rides and I never have.)
I should take a dose of my own medicine and remind myself to look on the bright side as at least she does eat after a while, we can get some antibiotics, we installed a brand new air conditioner a few months ago and there are tail wags and she is very alert and restored as soon as our food appears.
I love Stacy's quote about Willoughby which sums up why this is all worth while.
"Sometimes there is a dog who is so special he is able to wrap himself so completely around your heart it is impossible to tell where you begin and he ends."
May God continue to bless you sweet Willoughby!
