rough couple of weeks

logo

We’ve had a rough few weeks here lately.  We’ve had a round of cooties going thru the family that started with Justin, moved to Sean, then to Nick & now it’s my turn.  I’m not coughing like they were (yet lol) but I feel like I was run over by a truck & I just can’t seem to sleep enough.  I’m gonna say that Sean has been an absolute doll this past weekend while Nick & I were more or less zombiefied.  He was just great.  Nick never gets sick & when he does, he does it right.  He was flat on his back for a few days, hacking up a lung here & there, going from stuffy to drippy nosed in a matter of a couple of hours & oh my stars his fever & chills were bad.  But he’s over the worst part of it.  Justin missed a whole week of school.  Sean missed Thursday (Valentine’s Day), then Friday was the start of their winter break & they didn’t go back til Wednesday so everyone got time to rest & get over their cooties.  Well, the kidlets anyway.

Then last Monday Nick took Abby to the vet.  She hurt herself a few weeks ago by running into the door.  Well, she acted off for a few days, then she was OK.  Moving a little slow, but acting more like herself.  Well over the last week she’s been acting more & more like she hurts.  So Monday came & off they went.  Turns out she has spinal damage from running into the door.  She’s been on meds for a week now & she’s acting more like herself, but she still acts like she hurts if someone goes to touch her back legs & her left rear leg is dragging & goes out from under her.  The vet says it’s probably nerve damage.  Nick takes her back to the vet on the 5th.  It’s not really looking good at this point, if the meds don’t help, there’s not really a whole lot that can be done.  We might have to put my baby girl down.  I do NOT want to.  She’s my girl.  But I also don’t want her to hurt.  This is tearing me apart.  BUT we don’t know anything for sure until after the 5th when her follow-up appointment is.  But you know I’ll update here!  Going to slide out of here now & go veg.  Ya’ll have a great night!
