Gotta Get Back In The Game!!

I have totally slacked in my blogging since getting back from vacation.  I have a post that is half done, but I haven't finished it yet.  I have a bunch of reviews and even 2 giveaways to post...

I will try and get on that by tomorrow night!!

I wanted to just give a quick update though, on Faith in particular.  She was scheduled for surgery last week, but we had to postpone it because of Hope coming down with chicken pox.  We didn't feel comfortable having Faith go in, not knowing if she could pass on any of the infection in the recovery room...so that is on hold until June.

AND...because that is on hold, we are going to go ahead and start the process to change her medications.  She has averaged a significant seizure 1-2 times a week in the last few weeks and many (uncountable) absence and focal seizures.  This last seizure was weird...she stood for the whole thing, spun in circles, answered us when we talked to her and then finally held the couch until she was done.  Then she went to sleep.

You know what I think is completely amazing through this all?

Our dog...

Lately, whenever Faith has gone into seizure...even before the seizure starts, the dog has been sitting beside her, or this last time, Lady walked over and stood right beside Faith, almost like she was protecting her from the potential fall.

Dogs are amazing.  Seriously.

Anyhow, I gotta get ready for work, watch for posts this upcoming week, with giveaways and reviews and fun!!  I may even get the Cuba stories down too:-)

Have a great rest of the day...


  1. I've heard that dogs can sense when someone is about to have a seizure. Must be the case here, amazing! Hope you had a great vacation!

  2. Ruth, I've heard this about dogs, too! It's a really neat thing... and totally weird! But I love how it works that way.

    You just take care of 'life' and the blog will figure itself out! First things first! :D

    Luv ya, girlie!
