I've had a challenging few weeks and was a bit confused for a while, but I'm mostly better now. Today the weather was so beautiful (75 degrees and sunny) that I got to do one of my favorite things in the world.
I love to explore my yard on sunny days. So much to see and smell. I might take a little longer to get around, but I do just fine and it makes me happy.
Well I started to feel better on Saturday afternoon. Only a few "episodes" because my medicine was starting to kick in.
Daddy thought it would be a good night to have a bon-fire in the backyard. I love a warm fire so I was excited. I love to sit close and get my fur all warm. I love to watch the fire as well, so hypnotic.
Sunday was a lazy day for me. I moved from one bed to another. Isn't that what you are supposed to do on Sundays? Since momma was spending the afternoon sowing seeds in her seeder trays, I slept nearby on the back porch. I love this bed because its almost like being outside.
So sleepy.... Things are looking up for me. Everyone says I'm a tough old girl, I guess they may be right.
I was just minding my own business and momma wanted to take my picture. Well Max decided that he needed to be between me and my momma. He does this all the time and its annoying. Notice how his tail is whacking me in the face. So rude, but I love him.
Momma got him to move out of the way, but if you notice he's still right up front saying "look at ME!"
At least that's what my momma and daddy say. I've been having a little trouble with my back leg so momma called the vet in the hopes that I could have some good meds for my new pain. Well it's never that easy. Since I also suffer from CCD (doggie dementia), I am on a med called selegiline. It seems no other pain med beside the Deramaxx I'm on, plays nice with it.
Momma made the tough decision to take me off the selegiline this morning so that she'll be able to give me Tramadol tomorrow. It has to get all out of my system. I used to be on Tramadol (before I started the selegiline) and I did well on it. Luckily momma still had lots of it on hand so no need to run to the vet to pick some up.
Hopefully my brain will be just fine and I won't get sad and hide. I'll just be happy that I can take something for my new aches and pains. It sucks being a senior sometimes. Every day is new pain, a new med.
We'll see how the next week goes and hopefully I'll be able to come off the pain med and back on the brain med.
You guys know that I try not to post about my medical issues. I just don't think everyone else wants to hear about every ache and pain, pill schedules and potty issues of little old me.
Hopefully I'll have a more fun post to share next time. Later Gator!
