My heart is breaking. . .

My 12 year old Sandy suffered a horrible seizure Thursday night and was dazed couldn’t walk. We took her to our veterinarian Friday morning prepared to say goodbye. He was optimistic some of her responses were good, they kept her for observation & put her on IVs. She started slowly coming around & I picked her up that afternoon, taking her back the next day for a follow up. She had started walking on her own but still seemed disoriented.
Since then, physically she has improved slightly, but is so dazed and confused. Moaning when she’s awake. Needs to be carried downstairs. Urinates on herself. Walks into corners & just stays there. No appetite & I have been forcing fluids.

I laid on the floor next to her last night reading this forum. It’s so hard to say goodbye. She’s such a wonderful girl. I hate to see her like this.

I am waiting for the vet to open. Please remember us in your prayers.

I'm so sorry about Sandy. It's so difficult to see them very sick. The seizure had to be scary. I hope the vet is able to do something for her and you get more quality time with her.

I am so sorry. I know words do not take away the pain, but know that most, if not all of u s, has been thru this at last once and truly understand and feel for you. We remember our pain all to well. I have been a member of this forum for 14 years and during that time have had to say good bye to 6 much loved dogs--4 goldens, 2 Great Pyrenees. What a blessing it was to have people her that understood how deeply love for a dog can be. Again, Iam so sorry and later on, think about hr being pain free, alet and happy. That willhelp.
