the lovey

One of my favorite pictures of Scout as a puppy: hugging his lovey and watching for the water vole to swim past in the old house. He would get so excited when he saw water voles or bunnies that he'd sit down like he couldn't bear the weight of his surprise. Scout was always the sweetest of my babies.

Anyway long neuro appt today for Scout (from 11 am to nearly 4 pm) and they found some things but are going to pass us on to the ortho dept. They weren't letting anyone but patients in, but I was so anxious that I couldn't understand them on the phone--it was like I lost my capacity for language. So they brought me into a tiny exam room and went over everything with me again. 

I remember pointing out his weakness and everyone trying to convince me that I was imagining it. No one thinks I'm imagining it anymore, it's that obvious.

Time is terrifying sometimes.

Oh, I am so sorry, Maya. Poor little fellow. I hope there's a solution, and if there isn't, I hope he isn't in any pain.

That photo is darling. I just want to snuggle him.

I'm so sorry, Maya.
What a sweetie he clearly is - love that picture, too. He does just look so huggable.
I hope you get clear answers and a peaceful and healthy way forward for everyone and I'm so sorry you're all going through this.
