Me Moaning on Monday


We are so sorry we have once again been MIA.  It has been a tough while now trying to get me back on track.  Unfortunately that monster "S" keeps visiting.


I am looking pretty perky here but that is because I am flying high on my valium and hoping to get more and more food.  My seizures always leave me very, very hungry.

The following two photos show me coming out of an episode. Unlike the actual seizing stage, they aren't too scary to look at, but if you are squeamish, just zip on by.


This is my hidey spot, but when the monster comes, sometimes I get stuck in there.



Trying my darndest to get my legs back.



So my battle continues, but Mom said we wanted to let you know why we haven't been here or visiting your blogs very much.  It isn't very uplifting to keep posting bad news, and Mom is having a hard time finding those happy words to leave on your blogs.  We promise we will try to do better.  Meanwhile, please keep those paws crossed for me (and for my furiend Shyla  who is also facing a monster "S" of a different kind).

On the positive side, we have had a few days of very nice weather.

Woos - Ciara

That's the way to do it...keep staying in your little nook so the even "S" doesn't sneak up on you!

Madi and Mom said...

Sweet Ciara...bless your little heart. You are such a brave girl..we think the hidey hole is a very good spot for you when the S monster rears its ugly head. You are safe there. We miss you but we surely understand. It is hard to post when you feel icky!! We'll head over to Shyla's too
Sending purrs and love madi and mom

Hi there, So sorry you are still having them-kick them to the curb. Our last dog Reggie had two grand mal ones that were awful and then occasionally he would get small ones-just act disoriented and bump into things. Such a hard thing to watch. Glad the Valium seems to be helping a little. I hope Shyla can kick them too.
We are definitely having fall weather here.
Sending wags and prayers.
Noreen and Hunter

Thinking and praying everyday you beat this evil monster and enjoy long breaks inbetween. I am rooting even more for you as we lost our sweet Labrador Sable to this disease in July I take comfort that we were with her and she died in our arms at two and half years old. So you can do it Ciara and Mum. Big Hugs and kisses on noseys xx

Ciara, we have been very worried about you. We'd rather hear the bad news than to be left wondering. Mom feels the same way about not posting happy, uplifting blog posts, but life is what it is and with aging dogs,not all days are good ones.
