For those of you who are moms, I commend you for what you do. It's a thankless job that requires lots of hard work!
For those of you who don't have pets, I don't expect you to understand. You might even think I'm crazy. But I love my dogs, and I would do anything for them. If you don't, you may want to stop reading now, because you might think my level of craziness has gone off the deep end!
On Thanksgiving of last year we were at my parents house. My sweet Sadie Lady was outside playing and suddenly dropped down and started seizing. We rushed her to the emergency vet with a lot more questions than answers. It was the most terrifying day of my life so far. Holding my dog in my hands, racing to the vet, not knowing if she was going to die right there or not.
She's generally a very happy and healthy dog, so this has caught us completely off guard.
They checked her out and sent us home a few hours later. They gave us a few options for treatment, but after doing some extensive research after the last round, I elected just to take her home.
I have no idea if we made the right decision. How do you decide what's best? I can't imagine parents who sit in hospital rooms with their children and have to make treatment decisions for their children.
I know mommies of real babies have felt this way too.
For now, she's ok. We still have lots of questions and no answers. The unknown is what upsets me. We work full time and have no idea if she's been through this experience while we were gone.
