Dear Daisy

Posted on

The floor looks all wrong. I thought you should know that, being that you’re now in a position to run the Universe like you always wanted (I presume that flash storm we had yesterday afternoon was the coup you staged shortly after your arrival upstairs).  I hope you find the minions there to your satisfaction.

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

Posted on

I am happy to report that Daisy galloped up the hill in the back yard this morning!  She doesn’t so much gallop since the stroke…more a happy fast trot with a swing in her hips that totally goes to the rhythm of Milkshake by Kelis.  And not that lately.  So somebody is feeling BETTER.  I […]

We are SO SO SO SO SO RELIEVED. It’ll […]

Posted on

It’s hard to think about goals while I’m sitting here with my stomach in knots, waiting to hear the results of Daisy’s MRI.  She stayed totally stable all weekend, still has feeling in her feet, and was perkier yesterday (despite the dregs of sedation) when we went to see her.  The neurologist has been great […]

Pray For Daisy

My dog Daisy is in the ICU. At this point they are thinking either herniated disc or spinal stroke.  MRI on Monday to verify.  She’s stable.  We aren’t. We really really aren’t. This is my baby. The stroke is the better option.  No surgery, usually full recovery. The herniated disc is surgery and a much […]
