Thank you for all your kind words and prayers. I began to take the medication that the doctor prescribed on Monday and today is the very first day that I feel like myself. I can't tell you how happy that makes me.

I was concerned about taking a prescription because any narcotic makes me sick...literally. Thankfully the medication for a syrinx is not a narcotic to kill pain. It's a medication that interrupts the signals that my nerve endings send to my brain. I haven't had any side effects and the doctor was right...it took 48 hours to get into my system.

Meanwhile, little Boomer found another home so I'm not fostering him. I did find great comfort with my girls and of course my family (who doesn't know quite what to make of me when I'm not my usual happy self!).


Maddie and Annabelle would actually sense when it was time for me to lay down and make it to the bed before me! What good girls!

It is wonderful to read that you are feeling so much better. And of course you have 2 amazing helpers there with you too!! Mistaya

Yeah, my family is the same way. They don't know how or what to do without me. Glad you are back to yourself and meds are working. I think the dogs are more sensitive to our illness than humans. :)

Glad to hear you are better. It is nice that Boomer has found a forever home. I don't think families, either human or not, know what to do when we are off our feet for whatever reason.
I hope the medication keeps working for you.

I am happy the nerves are sleeping now.
How did I ever miss this story! Jeepers!
Maddie - you and Annabelle are so right in knowing when your mom does not feel good.
And now your feeling much better that the nerves are under control.
love

Who's Boomer, you didn't tell me about him or her.

Did you buy a new camera? Was looking at the video you posted.
