9:11 CT.....He was acting strange and I knew something was coming but it was the good old "Diarrehea"....he went twice and I am sure he feels better. I started him on the RX Pepcid he was supposed to start taking on Sunday. He now has that old sparkle in his eye again a bit.................. heavy sigh! Just hope the big "D" goes away quick. He is resting on a Costco bed in the family room right now. I sure hope he feels better tomorrow.
About 3:30 am I noticed he was restless in bed. Kept picking his head up and putting it down. Moving around a little. Then all of sudden he got up and got off the bed heading for the family room. I jumped out and headed out as well. I rounded the corner out of the bedroom and he was standing there losing his front legs to the outside from under him. He collapsed and could not get up. He was breathing very hard and his tongue was hanging out of the side of his mouth and eyes not cognizant of what was going on.
Off we go to A&M. Had to load him in the car by way of blanket again. By the time we got there he was able to do a sit up laying down. They did an IV and gave him fluids. We slept in the back of the SUV until the docs could give him a good going over when they came in at 8:00.
We thought maybe chemo reaction but the oncologist said no he had never seen this happen with a dog and if it was it was a first. The neuros did not think it was the encephalitis either. They suppose that maybe there is a tumor somewhere in there that ruptured and bled for a while and stopped.
He is on the sofa......kinda of puny. I sure hope he is feeling better tomorrow. If I don't have an ulcer after this journey I will be totally amazed.
