Me BW Him XSAWH
Thank you all again for providing your support with my sick girl. The medication is obviously helping to take the edge off - she's able to get up/down and walk outside to relieve herself. She still struggles to get up or lay back down. She's not okay, largely she's just able to get around when needed - she's not being playful and will only wag her tail periodically (like when I get home), she doesn't even get up to greet me. I'm used to fussing at her at 6:00am when she gets up and stairs at me (being a mastiff she's eye level with the bed) wagging that tail so hard it's slamming the wall! This morning I didn't have work so I woke up about 8:00 - it took her a few minutes to be able to get out of bed.
I hate watching her in so much pain and discomfort. It's heartbreaking. I'm glad that she can rest and be more comfortable, but...
Today I was sending a message to my boss, he wanted me to reschedule something the same day as her vet appointment. He's a great boss and doesn't make unreasonable demands, but I had to tell him that I couldn't reschedule the appointment as this wasn't just a "check up" and explained... I got teary-eyed because my mind went to the whole "what-ifs"?
