Sexy Birthday Bash
It's finally starting to get nice outside again.
I can't wait until the snow melts on the mountains here.
I can finally start hiking! I tried to hike in the snow last year,
and I ended up falling into a magical snow hole.
Those are real. You can be trapped in one of
those for days, depending on how
deep it is.
Here are some photos I took last Spring at Mount Charleston
in Las Vegas. No slot machines in sight, hooraay!
Penny also helped me celebrate my birthday yesterday.
I can't believe 25 years ago, my mom vajayjayed me.
Penny had fun at the birthday party. She is doing better to
some degree, but mentally she seems to be declining. This could
be due to the anti-seizure medication. We are lowering the
dosage later this week to see if this might be the case.
The neurologist does not seem to think her
triglycerides caused the seizures, so we
still have no leads on this.
Her seizures have stopped, but the fact that she
is having so many other issues right now is
She seems to have lost some of her hearing, and she is
disoriented. She doesn't seem to recognize where some things
are, and is very confused with the layout of the rooms in
our condo. I keep finding her trapped in back of
doors, and in the corners of the rooms.
She also seems to be having some
discomfort trying to lie
We're working with our vet, and are hoping she will ease out
of these issues in time. We'll probably know if this is going to
be a steady decline over the next few weeks, or if she will
pull out of it, and return back to her sexy self.
It's hard to know with these things, and you
just have to give it time.
Penny told me to tell everyone not to worry, and have some
whipped cream for her. We will let you know how she is doing.
Thank you for all of the nice birthday wishes!
We hope everyone is having a great week!
