Having a head for heights!

Sorry, folks but still a few days away from being back to normal service.

We awoke yesterday morning with Casey sufficiently unwell that Jim Goodbrod recommended taking him to Southern Oregon Veterinary Services (SOVC) down in Medford. There SOVC said that it does look as though Casey has a failure in one of the spinal discs in his neck. First, we have been advised to up the pain medicine before embarking on an MRI and then, possibly, surgery.

In the middle of all this the tube from my catheter into my drainage bag became blocked, evidenced by pee running down my leg!!

SOVC offered me their very comfortable bathroom where I then unblocked the tube using a syringe and sterile water; luckily all brought with me.

Then it was up to Grants Pass to find a solution to my ‘leaking’ catheter only to find that Southern Oregon Medical Equipment, who we thought were in Grants Pass, had moved a year ago from Grants Pass to …… guess?? ……. yes: Medford!

Plus it was raining for most of the day!

Yes, it was one of those days!!

One of those days where one needs a head for the heights that life can throw at one.

No better demonstrated by the following video sent to me by my loving son: Alex!

So will just close by saying that until my catheter is taken out next Tuesday (fingers crossed) I may be ‘distracted’ from Learning from Dogs at times!

  1. Oh my, I am sorry that you are having the health problems and dog problems all at the same time. I’m sure it is more than frustrating and inconvenient to need to jump from one thing to the next. Wishing you and Casey wellness and sending healing thoughts to you as well as Casey.

    The video is terrifying. I hope the climbers of the TV and satellite towers are paid very well. It takes a dare devil to do that kind of work.

      1. Yes, climbing that far just to put in a bulb so that planes don’t hit the tower. Cool headed and brave, they are. 🙂

        And please be well soon. And Casey too. And you’re welcome.
