Dot Update - Weds AM

I laid in bed for 15 minutes this morning and just didn't want to face the day.  Dot was still asleep so I just let her sleep a bit more as my excuse.

She was waggy when I got her up, although very slow.  For the first ten minutes or so she participated with the other Brats and did eat one slice of cheese.  After that she wouldn't even sniff anything, went to her bed in the living room and stared at the fireplace.  She's snippy with Samantha which is very unusual.  I sat with her and she pushed her head in my chest for about 15 minutes before I left for work.

I don't think she's going to make it.  Dr. Becky is coming mid-afternoon to re-evaluate like planned and go from there.

Thanks again for the support.  I feel like a crazy person constantly updating, but there's been so many times I've gone back through others blogs that were in the same situation and it's proved very helpful.  So here it all is and unfortunately I don't think this is going to have a happy ending.  I just want to hide with my head under a pillow and that's chicken-shit I know but I think I've hit my wall.


PS Thank you everyone for your emails, texts, FB messages, etc.  I promise I will get back to everyone when I can.  I really appreciate them all.

Maryann, you know we're all here for you! We love you & all the Bratz. Life can be so hard sometimes! We're praying for Dot, & are so sorry about Millie. Just wish we could be there for you. This so reminds me of Karen, when she lost Amy & Stormy so close together. Tears in my eyes now.... {{{{HUGS}}}}

Thank you for updating about Dot. We are all thinking of you & sending love & prayers & support..

My late boy Dublin had zone out periods where he would stare at the wall or whatever...his specialist said he wasn't getting enough oxygen to his brain - as his red blood cell count was very low. Maybe Dot is experiences some times of confusion & that is why she is snippy with Sam?

We are sending Dot the most healing of all vibes! & for you as well Maryann...this is not sucks.

Much love,
Randi's mom

Maryann... Oh how we understand how you feel, pillow over the head and all... We are praying for better news, but know that regardless, you will be there for Sweet Dot.

Although we don't know you as well as some of your friends, we know this without doubt... You are a wonderful Mom, and you've blessed Millie and Dot (and all others who have been fortunate to call you 'Mom'!). Your love is immense and eternal.

You all are in our prayers, and we continue to send you postive thoughts and well wishes.

With love from The Bleu and The Mom
