I hope you are doing better and adjusting to Pablo and his wheels. I thought the same way you do when Baileyhad his amputation--but you know what? He just hopped along and was just the happiest boy. It took me awhile to not be afraid for him, but eventually, I just loved him and let him go at his own pace and he seemed much better. I think he was sensing my worry for him and once I gave it up, he would run and play just like he had 4 legs.
Please let us know how you are and give hugs to Pable from me and my "kids"---Benson, Daisy and Gypsy.
The doctor says he is doing great and showing some progress but I have lost my faith and feel so guilty for failing him. I keep thinking of the day that I will have to say goodbye although I should be thinking about all the days we have left together. I know that he can live a happy life on wheels but I am still in denial- I can't believe that this happened to him!!! I am hurt, bitter, depressed and although there is still gratitude for having him around- I am not myself- haven't been for months. I don't want to fail him.
Sorry for the rambling but this is the only place that I can go to and vent. I am so grateful for all your support. Please pray for me. Please pray so that I can have the strength and faith to see through these tough times. I know there are miracles and I know that God can heal him. I just want to see him get up and walk more than anything in the world. I really do. You are all in my prayers and I do pray that all is going well for you and your pups. Big hug, Clara and Pablo.
Hi everyone: It's been a while...still struggling. Pablo is eating and sleeping well. He got his little red wheels a few weeks ago. I really wanted to get them for him because his spirits were low for a bit there. As soon as we put him in them- he zipped across the room. I cried, of course. We then took him outside to the nearby playground and he ran around chasing a ball. My heart was pounding hoping that he would not get injured. You see that is one of my struggles- Pablo.. moving a certain way and getting hurt. I took him outside for a walk the following day and people kept on stopping us. They would ask what happened and would pet him. They all love him so much and well, he loves the attention. I, on the other hand, am having trouble with all the attention. I did not realize how tough it was going to be for me. I am having trouble accepting that he is not like all the other little frenchies out there. I have even become phobic about taking him outside- I rely on my fiance to do it and I do everything else at home. I get so upset with myself because I should be happy but all I can think about is his little mind- is he happy? He looks it but am I being selfish? I am so afraid that I would keep him around just because I don't want to lose him. I don't want to make that mistake for he deserves to be happy and live a dignified life.
It's great to hear from you! Glad to know Pablo is doing well and thrilled to hear you thinking about wheels for him. With wheels you and he will be able to take walks together again! He is SO cute! I love what you have done with your page!
I admit I was concerned about YOU. You did seem to be depressed in your last few posts. It sounds like you are doing better too! I'm so glad! Prayers continue for you both.
Thank you for your continuous care and prayers. Pablo is home and seems to have more energy today. We will be seeing the neurologist on Friday @ 9:30am to find out the rest of the results. I must admit that I am really scared. I am trying to keep my chin up but boy, he is my sanity, my little guardian angel. He ate his two meals today and finally had a bowel movement since Sunday morning. He is till down but I don't think the little guy likes to be confined. He is however, behaving and it's weird it's as if he knows he needs the rest so he stays in his little crate contently. Keep the prayers coming, please. We need a miracle. I will also keep all of you in my heart and prayers. Always positive energy, always.
