Oh this is hard news to take, poor girl. I know your are a nervous wreck Wendy!

 

Remember positive thinking, be calm with her and keep telling her she is a fighter and has lots of prayers and support.

 

Sending you hugs, a few roos and wet nose kisses!!!

 

Your doing the best you can for her. Get the MRI sooner than later is my suggestion, less guessing games.

Good thoughts for Twiggy and you. I hope she is on the mend early next week and she is able to come home sooner.

Stay positive if you can. I have seen dogs have quite severe idiopathic vestibular episodes without nausea or loss of appetite. Very much a case by case situation. Being a tripod is obviously a complicating factor. Doing "counter balancing" exercises with her will help. If she is food motivated that will help encourage her. Good luck and best vibes.

Sending good thoughts and best wishes for Twiggy and her mom across the ocean.

Sorry for butchering the english language. I try to keep the mistakes to a minimum.

OK, GT - I think you did it!

 

I just got a call from the e-vet. They say she stood herself up this morning by leaning and pushing against the wall. They got her to walk with some assistance (she was leaning against the tech).

 

Then she squatted to pee (still with assistance), but then, she decided to walk several feet ALL ON HER OWN!!!

 

It wasn't easy for her, she is still very wonky, but all I needed was for her to not fight against being upright and want to try. It sounds like she is doing that now, so I am going to head over as soon as I get a few things prepped for her & hopefully BRING HER HOME!

 

I've never cried tears of joy before, but I have now.

 

Thank you all - I'll keep you posted.

Pogo sends his best. He plans on racing against Twiggy in next year's radar run at the GPA-WI annual gathering.

That's often how it goes, I think, with these kinds of things. Seems really bad, and then - poof! - they start getting better!

 

You know we are ALL pulling for The Twigster to get her act together! ;):candle :candle :candle

She is home!

 

It was really hard getting her out of the car (she was screaming, and I felt awful having to put her through that) but once I got her out I was able to carry her in to her bed, help her stand for a while, and then got her laying comfortably.

 

Here she is posing for her picture...

This was right after I got her home. She is zonked out with a pillow under her head now. (They like her to have her head raised a little).

 

Thank you all again for all of the encouragement and good wishes. They have been tremendously helpful. She still has a very long way to go, but I am hopeful now that she can regain some relatively normal function. Her improvement also virtually rules out tumor as cause, so that is reason to celebrate as well!
