Have you ever heard of an older dog having vertigo? Well my poor Bernie suffered from it last week and it was one of the worse things I have ever witnessed. My poor boy didn’t know what was up or down, right or left. He was unable to get up on all fours for 24 hours. And when he did finally rise, he could barely get a step in. I felt so helpless and seriously thought that vertigo couldn’t be this bad, something else must be doing this to him.
But patiently after numerous vet appointments, I waited for the days to past and slowly my Bernie has recovered. He isn’t 100% back, but he is getting stronger as days go by. I have had dogs most of my life and never experienced something as so heart wrenching as I witnessed what Bernie must of felt. But this morning, he did take a short walk and ate his breakfast; so as far as I am concerned, my Bernie is back.
I am supposed to fly to Austin, TX to seem my daughter, my SIL, and my grandson, Lev in a week and a half. But as of recently, plans are a bit sketchy. Due to the celebrations during Memorial Weekend and the now “open state,” the virus is escalating there. So what we are now doing is taking it a day at a time before the departure day to see how things go. I will be extremely disappointed if I won’t be able to fly out there; but this is how life is now, our well-made plans don’t seem to work out all the time. It is what it is I guess.
Disappointments are a total drag, but I know that there will be tons more chances to go to Austin in the future if this recent trip is cancelled. It is just so difficult to be separated from them. I have an amazing relationship with my daughter and her husband, Justin; we are as close anyone can be with anyone so that makes me feel happy.
That’s what has been happening on the home front. I am taking all precautions to be safe and I hope all of you stay well and safe too.
