Everyday I wake up and am thankful that Watson is in my life. He makes me laugh and cry within the same moment. He has the ability to fill my heart with joy and sadness at the same time. I know everyone who has the pleasure of sharing their life with that special little soul feel the same ups and downs. Cheers to all of you for caring and loving and holding on to the special moments.
Watson turned 4 last week. We made it. I tried not to make a big deal about the whole birthday thing, but he kept on looking for that special present and treat! So happy he is still alive and looking!
Watson heard that Hurricane Harvey had hit the coast of Texas and his ear perked up, thinking we might get to evaluate to Arkansas.
He was a little relieved to find out that we were spared any real damage and only a few rain showers here and there, but just a bit disappointed the road trip to visit the cousins and aunts and uncles to the north has to wait for a couple of more weeks.
Hope everyone in South Texas is safe and no loss of life. Things can be replaced. Have a good Saturday.
I realize that Bob Marley was talking about you, as a person, as a society, as a generation, when he said to ” Light up the darkness”. That we must remember that we are the light and have the power to overcome the darkness in this world, but this boy, my baby Watson, has the power to light up the darkness that exist in our lives and turns on a special switch that fills our days with love and happiness. Hope everyone has a great Wednesday with Watson!
Good morning folks. It is Thursday June, 15, 2017. Watson is up and doing pretty good this morning. I am seriously thinking on acupuncture for his seizures. Any suggestions or reviews on this subject?
Even from an early age, Watson had a mind of his own. Also that attitude. Truly a terrier.
Beautiful day in our neighborhood. Hope everyone takes the time to stop and smell the roses, or in Watson’s case, the grass. Have a good one on this Wednesday with Watson!
Wednesday finds Watson a little annoyed with me. Last week was not a fun week for our boy. Had to visit the neurologist about his brain. Which, in case you are wondering, does exist and I have seen the pictures! Watson has been having seizures and last Tuesday he have a bad one, so they decided to do an MRI and a spinal tap. I was worried that his little brain was going to be eaten up with cancer or cyst. Or maybe he had meningitis. But, no brain damage that is visible, no tumor, no evidence of stroke and no inflammation in the spinal fluid. The boys brain looks good folks, but as a result of his last round of seizures, his eyesight was affected. Blind. But slowly it is coming back. Seems sometimes they get nerve damage to the optical nerve. So, everyday I am poking my finger at him, hoping for a blink. Well, he is blinking and he is tired of me trying to poke his eye out. Seriously annoyed. So now instead of 2 , Watson is on 3 different meds to control these seizures. Been hard on my heart!
The shaved leg for his IV has started to itch..looks like a poodle cut to me.
You can see how his back was shaved for the spinal tap.
God knew this boy was going to need help. God also knew I would take care of him. We were meant to be together.
Beautiful morning in Arkansas this Good Friday. We have been out communing with nature and saying our prayers for everyone. Enjoy the day!
