I am feeling very tired today and so is Richie after the week we have had, yesterday was very stressful.
For both Richie and for Spike undergoing hours of examination and for myself waiting patiently at home for them to come home.
What a relief to get Richie’s call that they were on the way home and he had good news about Spike for me.
It has been very worrying watching Spike walking getting worse and then stopping practically altogether on Thursday.
Thinking it might be a neurological problem only increased our anxiety considerably; Spike seemed to having spasms, almost thought it could be MS or Parkinson’s.
Hearing it was a hernia seemed wonderful news compared to the other things had worried it could be.
When Richie got home and told me the diagnosis it felt like the best news ever, funny that as a hernia means an operation.
Better that then the news that there was nothing they could do for our lovely Spike and the vet would have had to put him to sleep yesterday.
We are both happy that something can be done and Spike’s problem will be dealt with very soon.
