For all you pet lovers you'll understand. These past few days with the heat in the triple digit and higher then normal humidity my problem child Tye the dobie has been having seizures and at time difficulty walking. Vets have checked him and run tests on him. His brain just doesn't function at times. We tease that he only has two brain cells and they don't often touch. In all my years of training Tye has been the most difficult. When he is acting normal I have a chance of him being obedient but other times it is just a blank stare and no one is at home. Well when he seizures he gets like any child very needy and wants to cling and he may not have any hair but he is like a furnace. He wants to be on top of me and it is way to hot but with contact I can feel quicker when the seizures start. Most of the last three days I've spent with him glued to me. Tye is 61/2 years old. My best friend's wife says to put him down but he is only scared by the seizures he is not in any pain so I feel he is worth the extra effort and should be able to live. Tye was originally their dog and he barked and was such a pain they couldn't handle him so I ended up with him. By her standards with my health issues I should have been put down years ago. Oh and with her M.S. problems wouldn't she qualify too?
I say my primary care doctor today for my blood test results. For some reason they are worse then they have been in over two years. asked him if it could be stress? He doesn't think so but my eating hasn't changed except for more calories then I have been burning. With not being able to do much while waiting for and recovering from the angio I have not been doing my cycling and stuff and have gone up. Being disabled it is a challenge to figure out how much your body really burns. At one point they told me I only burned about five hundred calories a day. I couldn't function on so few calories. The doctor wondered if I was getting to few but I know that isn't the cause. I am do for blood work in Sept before surgery and in November for a three month check up. I hope it goes back down to at least where I used to be. My blood pressure was excellent. With Mara with me my stress level is less and I am more mellow and in a more comfortable mental state. I do need a new doctor . I have tried to talk to this doctor about the abuse and eating conditions I live under and he isn't interested and won't listen let alone offer any help with local agencies. He is the only doc in town and just doesn't give a darn. He lives somewhere else not even in our town. My neurologist is the most supportive and I see her in a few weeks.
My prayer list has gotten longer. We have a number of cherished pets and family member die recently and I have added everyone to my list of spark prayers. Hope everyone has a good weekend and god bless everyone. Love Holly
p.s. I need a kick in the butt and a reminder to get back to loosing weight.I am worth it ! Just need to believe it.
