Please Good Thoughts and Magical Powers for MP

Postby MaisyPancakes » Fri May 05, 2017 1:15 pm

You guys, please send MP some good thoughts. I'm scrambling to get my head together for another vet visit and possibly referral to a neuro after that. MP's had 4 seizures today and she is just having a tough shit of a time. I know ODO vibes are extra healing, so I am asking for some for the Pancakes right now. Thank you so, so much. I will update soon!

I was just thinking I hadn't seen you on FB in a while, and I logged in to ODO to see if you were here and just saw this old post.

Thinking good thoughts for both of you. We <3 her and you.

I'm so sorry that I threw out a crisis and then left it hanging. :( Friends on FB may have seen that she rallied a bit after five seizures that day, but she also had tons of things stack up against her at once, in a flurry of terrible luck. She was able to walk for a bit at first, but then not so well, and now to the point she wouldn't be able to stand without help. Up until now, the big things we were dealing with were seizures and owies; two nights ago, she coughed for an hour, and we nearly went to the ER (as soon as they said we could come in, she fell asleep and didn't cough again—so they said to hang tight for now). I told the story to rehab vet and she suggested I get chest Xrays ASAP—and my awesome vet, on her day off, managed to carve out time and staff to make it happen. Because she has had a weird history of having seizures at their clinic, she arranged everything so that she would spend as little time as possible inside—so we measured her in the car, quickly carried her into the room that was all set up, took a couple of shots, and we were done. Unfortunately, the x-rays showed a bunch of fluid around right side of her body and some lung stuff going on; the cause of fluid is unknown/not visible, but likely a mass or something like that. It's perhaps exacerbated by the fact that she was lying on one side (the "good" side) for a couple of weeks with minimal turning/standing—even though I knew she needed to, she just couldn't do it without going into massive pain and by then I just wanted her to be comfortable. :( My vet came over to my house to tell me the bad news, and at that point (before seeing the University's radiologist's consult) was thinking today or tomorrow might be appropriate time to let her go. Even though I knew it would be soon, it was just so sudden. A couple of hours later, my vet came over again with the radiologist's report and some Orbax; she said it's still bad, but they thought it could also be an "odd pneumonia"—so their recommendation was to "treat what's treatable" and see if it brings her any comfort and possibly avert imminent crisis. She's coughed a few times when moved around (because I carry her), but no big fits since. Although we were considering Sunday, she brought 4 days' worth of pills just in case...so we're checking in a couple of times a day to see how she's doing. My vet thinks we will know; I really hope so.

Thanks for listening, you guys. I feel like MP and I are merged into some wild fuzzy animal and I don't know how we could ever be physically apart.

I am so sorry, Nana. It's so so hard to watch them decline and be powerless to stop it. Thanks for the update. I'm sending you love and the powerful ODO goodvibes for strength through this.

Thinking of you all day, NanaPancakes. You are the most wonderful human any dog could ever possibly hope for, and I agree that your concern for MP is an inspiration.

Oh you guys, thank you so, so much. We have had two amazing days, and have a plan tomorrow around noon for my vet to come help us say goodbye. My vet left me a nice voicemail saying, "let's plan around noon tomorrow, unless she starts running around or something crazy..." And as soon as I hung up and started to pack the car for a trip to a park, MP totally pulled me to the car and has been just Pancakesing all the way, all day long. I am so hoping that she is just trying to go out with a bang, and that she's not trying to prove something (I say this with a half a wink). Everything from my meals to clothes to hygiene schedules to social life to my house arrangement is completely based on MP; I am at a bit of a loss to say that I'm really not sure who I am without her.

Oh Nana, my heart breaks for you. As for MP "Pancakesing" around all day long, I can so picture MP doing that. :) My own very senior dogs have done exactly the same thing (well, not Pancakesing, but Charleying and Mitzi-ing etc). I swear they hear us on the phone to the vet! Holding you, MP, and Acorn in my heart through the difficult days ahead.

Sending much love and courage and peace your way. My heart breaks with yours. I think MP is making sure you have a Pancakes weekend to remember and hold in your heart. Please let me know if I can do anything. And whether it is tomorrow or weeks from now, you have given her the happiest, most wonderful life. It is an honor to have seen as beautiful a friendship as you have with her. Love to you and Anthony and dear MP.

This is the hardest part of loving and being loved by a dog. You have given MP a life that most people would want - I know I do! You are an amazing dog mom, and she knows that. You are doing right by her and this is the most unselfish gift you can give her. I've been in this position more times than I want to count, and it isn't easy, but I am grateful we have the choice to help them in this way. My thoughts and prayers are with y'all. :frown:

Shit. Shitty shit shit. I can't imagine a world without a NanaMaisyPancakes amalgamation, but I can say I'm glad I knew a world where one existed, even if it's never long enough. You two have had a wonderful journey together and while it will look different, you'll always be together.

ODO vibes for the best possible transition.
