Update on Rusty..

Ok, things are so complex so please bear with me while I try to relay information ....I just got off the phone with the vet. I called and asked to check on my brother Rusty and she knew who I was and said "Hi Nicole"

This is essentially a disease that causes an inflammation of the nerves around the brain and inner ear which in return is causing the vertigo. Which it is not even vertigo.. it is SO much more complex than that.
They have him on a fluffy bed and were able to hand fed him some lunch...they were also able to support him and hold him to walk outside and go potty. Which was hard because with this it makes him want to roll or walk into things.
I asked if he is suffering or in pain and they said no but that he is confused and doesn't know what or why this is happening to him. They said he wagged his tail, Thank You God!  His eyes are kinda crazy and have been rolling and this has caused him to have a head tilt which may be permanent.
They said 80% he will have a full recovery (for a 14 year old dog) BUT this is something he will have and could have more spells as his life continues.
He is not out of the woods yet, so please continue the prayers and THANK YOU so much for the kind emails, messages and comments. They mean alot to me and my family.
I think one reason why this is extra hard for me on top of the main reason which is LOVE...is that animals rely on us to care for them and we can't tell him what is wrong and I don't want him to be upset. I get to go and visit him at lunch tomorrow, I will cry. Funny, I am known as the girl who doesn't cry (ask Matt) and here I can not even make it thru a phone call with vet without sobbing!

Oh Nicole - I am so sorry to hear about your dog. I will definitely keep him in my prayers. I know how much we can come to love those little pets like our own kiddos :) Sending lots of positive thoughts and prayers your way!
