    I can't imagine how difficult this has to be for you. But the fact that you are going through this and are still able to do the video not only for your own reasons but to help others recognize or be aware of the symptoms is amazing to me. You and Abbey are in our thoughts. I hope she continues to improve. Hang in there!

    I was not prepared at all for her symptoms to be post-op so soon. I've talked to a handful of people that have been through this and never heard of it. I don't know if I'm overreacting or not but I've had about 13 hrs. of sleep in the past 3 days and I'm exhausted both emotionally and physically. Also, I hate even posting anymore as I feel like I'm such a downer--doesn't seem like anything to write positive. Going to be a long day. I've written on my blog but will write in here as cavalier talk holds a special place in my heart and always will as this is the site that helped me figure out that my baby did NOT have allergies and there was something else wrong with her. I talked to the neurologist yesterday and cried to the neurologist too. Taking her in there today so they can check her out and I have alot of concerns and questions right now and I'm scared.

    Sorry sorry sorry for being such a downer.

    I remember feeling the same way with Charlie, in fact that is why I stopped writing on his blog. It was good to write about the positive things, but when he had bad days, it became difficult to write. In retrospect I wish I had finished the blog, even though his story ended several weeks later. I kept worrying that someone would take it the wrong way, and maybe base their decision on what I wrote about Charlie.

    One of our members, 'Molly's mom' (Bev) has a lovely tricolor girl who had decompression surgery. Molly and Bev went through an extremely difficult and worrying time after surgery with Molly in pain. But finally Molly came through it, and we all rejoiced.

    The thing is, no one can predict the future. I felt Molly's story has offered a lot of hope.

    Thanks Nubus. That makes me feel good about my post giving you the nudge also. I have received e-mails and comments in regards to the video and posts have helped a few and they know in their hearts their dogs have it after watching the video--just like I did the day on here watching a couple videos. I feel very good in that aspect that we are helping others.

    Cathy--I have spoken to Bev on the phone and many many e-mails etc. She had forgotten about the beginning etc. and Bev has been a rock to me lets say.

    In regards to the negative etc. I'm trying not to do that on this site. On my blog I will pour my heart out. Like somebody on a coment in my blog said that it wouldn't be a blog unless I did and that really hit me when this person said that.

    Pippa thank you for caring. It means alot and I know I have gotten emotionally involved on some dogs in here so I know what that feels like also.

    Thank you again everybody and I did write a little post on my blog this a.m. in regards to yesterday and will write more later but I'm feeling alot better.

    Linda, I'm glad you are feeling a bit better. I hope you got a good nights sleep last night - everything always looks better after a decent sleep.

    I just watched your new video of Abbey and one thing stood out to me...that little tail going like the clappers when she saw you, she might be in pain, but she knows who loves her and looks after her, thats for sure. Lucky girl.

    If you read these posts and your blog again in a few weeks time I bet you will be able to see how much she has come on.

    Yes I know that she knows we love her also. I just have to talk to her and she wags her tail. In that video when I watch it now it drives me nuts how many times I ask her if she wants to go outside--lol. She probably said to herself--awww shuddup mom I already answered that 3 times--lol. I was just trying to show how you talk to her and her tail wags--lol.
