Hooper didn’t eat or drink all day yesterday or today and has been really lethargic. I took him to the vet this afternoon and was told to take him off the pain meds and the vet gave him a shot of something. Now we wait it out to see how he responds. It’s like history repeating itself, but this time it’s with my dog.
As I was driving back to work after dropping off Hooper at the house, my head flashed back to the countless of times I drove back forth to check on Chris. I felt myself back in that place scrambling to hold normalcy together, keeping the house together, staying on top of things at work, trying to make Chris better, convinced I could I do it all. I can’t. I never could. Yes… I realize that I am over reacting a bit. But maybe I’m just reacting.
I think I’m taking a break from the blog this week. That thread that’s barely holding me together has become seriously frayed. I’m going to work on winding that up.
