I nearly lost Ozzie yesterday.  Wow - Grieving and re-grieving! what a day. We spent some time hunting for an Emergency Vet - being Off-Line, darn, no more YellowPages books!  How the heck do I find things quickly in an Emergency when I don't have "smart" electronics? 411 - well it kinda works, but those AutoBot things mistranslate me soooo much it is very annoying!

We finally found the off-duty vet in Blythe CA.  He was wonderful - he took blood and tested it.  You see Ozzie had a seizure while at the dog park yesterday morning - when I wrapped him in a towel and put him in the car, I was not sure he would survive.  He did. Eventually barking his Yorkie bark at another dog. Then he ate some dog food and drank some water - soooo we visited the vet. He couldn't find the heart issue that the other vet thought was there and nothing else seems to be wrong.  He has Epilepsy! evidently the weird mouth/tongue thing he has been doing the last couple weeks may have been mini seizures and yesterdays event a GrandMal! Scarey - like crying, grieving, shakey scarey! and now a day later. He's rested and it seems back to normal with a little less barking and little more wanting hugs.

I'm visiting the Quartzsite library, which is very accommodating and has nice employees.  I checked for comments to my blogging - so I could respond, while I'm here.  I also checked my recent orders placed through Amazon. I get to go pick up something!

I certainly hope you all have a wonderful day.  I am planning one - if God sees things the same it should be restful and fun!

Keep smiling,
