Last week we had a bad day. Well – I had a bad day. Mommy left for work and I slipped on the tiles and I couldn’t get up. Then I got upset and I pooped. I was so scared I cried… and finally just laid there. There was nothing I could do. Benji was in his box so he couldn’t help, but he was worried.
Finally, after what seemed like forever, my Angel came. Angel called mommy and took me to the doctor and mommy came as fast as she could. I was so relieved when mommy came into the room. She hugged me, and held me, and I finally stopped shaking and I gave her kisses.
The doctor came too and he did some tests, and had me try to stand up. I was really wobbly – and he thought I hurt myself in the fall (again) – (this happened before) and then I wore myself out because I was so upset. He gave mommy a bunch of “special treats” to give me – which caused me to poop a lot more. ugh, but they helped my back feel better……..
I was JUST happy to rest, and eat the treats and have mommy there.
Mommy took me home that night and had me stay in the box with all sorts of pillows so I would be safe. I like the pillows! I also ate a lot to regain my strength and that helped too.
Now I can stand up, but it’s kind of hard. Mommy helps when my hips get stuck or my back legs are too weak, and I stay in the box with Benji when mommy goes out.
As long as mommy is here I know things will be safe. I know there will be love. That is all that matters.
