Stormy Friday

It's a very gray day here in San Antonio...it's turning my mood pretty gray as well. A few good things to report though...the cold front came through last night and Garnett did not have a seizure. We are thinking that his last couple of seizures have been triggered by excitement combined with a cold front coming into the area. We did our best to keep the puppies calm last night and it seemed to help...also helped that the cold front came through after they were in their crates for the night. The vet has offered to give us a prescription for Val.ium to keep him extra calm, if necessary. We haven't tried it yet, but last night we tried Pet.co's version of "doggie downers"...um, yeah, didn't touch the boy. lol. On another "positive" note...due to the weather I got to wear jeans and a sweatshirt today. J laughs when I get excited to wear a sweatshirt. It doesn't happen often enough down here. Unfortunately, I think I am becoming a bit of a wimp with the cold. It drops to 60 and I am grabbing my Cape Cod sweatshirt. :)

As for the mood...it seems so hard to believe that it's been 2 weeks since I was pregnant. I keep thinking this wasn't supposed to happen this time. I haven't cried in the shower for the last two days, so that is a step forward, but I still have a hard time falling asleep and haven't gone to bed without crying yet. Baby steps, I guess. Physically, I am doing well...bleeding is pretty much done - just some spotting. I have to admit, this has me a little worried...it doesn't seem like it lasted long enough. Thankfully, we are going in for a follow-up on Monday. I have not heard if they were able to do any testing...I've been tempted to email Dr. A to see if it  had been done, but haven't yet.

I've also realized that I need to bit the bullet and contact an endocrinologist about my thyroid. I have no idea why my levels changed this past year and without knowing what's next for us with Dr. A, I know I need to see someone to make sure it's monitored.

I still just want to run away to Belize...anyone want to join me? IF blogger meet-up at the Sunbreeze?!?

  1. Healing from this kind of loss is so hard and painful. I wish that none of us had to endure this.

    I get so jealous when I look at those beautiful pics of Belize. My boss is going in two weeks...

    I had no idea you lived in San Antonio. I love it there. We try to get down to the riverwalk as often as possible. Gosh it is so busy down there anymore though.

    1. Oh, I am so envious that your boss is going to Belize...which part? I so wish we were going back for Thanksgiving this year, but I just don't think it's in the cards. We are hoping to get back next year for our anniversary.

    1. If only the fares to Belize were cheaper...I know I could get us a good deal on the hotel during the low season. :)

  3. I'm so thankful that Garnett made it through the night without having a seizure. That's huge- in a lot of different ways. I'm also glad that you are going to see an endo. I'll send you more on that in a bit. I'll meet you at the Sunbreeze 12:00PM sharp- with open arms and a Belize-sized hug. xo

  4. I would love to meet you in Belize! Blogger meetup! Ha ha.

    That's great that Garnett didn't have a seizure. Our older dog had a seizure once and it's so scary because you can't comfort them and they have no idea what is going on. :-(

    I hope you get some answers on Monday.
