Jersey is back to doing well. He had a small spasm last Friday (a week ago) following an especially exciting visit to the vet for his regular nail trim and anal-gland appointment. Which isn’t surprising, all things considered. If we keep him calm, on routine, and on his medications though, he’s his normal self again.
I am also due to have a baby any time in the next 3 weeks, and I worry about how the dogs will adjust to *that*. I desperately hope that the change in the house (and what a huge change it will be) won’t throw Jersey back about 25 steps in his progress.
It IS exhausting trying to keep the house as quiet and peaceful as possible. I feel like I am constantly walking on egg shells and always on high alert with him.
On the plus side– the sooner the baby comes, and the snow melts, the sooner we can make the trip back to Vancouver to have him seen again by his Neurologist. Hopefully then we can get to the bottom of why he’s still requiring medication to function, and why he’s still so damn delicate. This has been going on since November, and to say I am “over” it would be pretty huge understatement. I’m sure HE is over it as well.
In the meantime, I’m glad he’s comfortable and happy again.
