Finn Fan Fix
Okay – to start off, I want to thank you ALL for the wonderful comments and the thoughts and prayers that you’ve been sending our way! Finn probably doesn’t even realize how many folks (that he’s never met) love him so much! It means to the world to us (me!).
Second – I want to apologize for yesterdays’ Debbie-Downer-Negative-Nellie-Pity-Party-Pauline FFF. It’s been a long week, y’all – and Thursday was the second lowest point for me. But. I got some good advice from my Mom and several of you who left comments and sent private e-mails.
And – as a result of those words of wisdom – sometime while I was sleeping…I just gave it up!
I’ve done everything I can. The doctors have done what we can do for now. So – now it’s up to God and Finn.
And Father Time. Yes – hard as it is to believe – it’s been just 5 days since the accident. Only three since he had major surgery to repair the injury.
Hello? What the heck was I expecting anyway? I’ve had traumatic injuires and I’ve had surgeries. I KNOW the toll it takes on the brain and body.
I do NOT know why I was expecting him to be “miraculously” all better yesterday. Unrealistic and ridiculous.
So. I’m letting it go. I’ve going to focus on the POSITIVES! And be tickled with any and all progress I see.
And – on Friday – I started to see more glimpses of “my” Finn!
In the morning, I thought he could use a quick brush – just to feel good! I pointed at his spot and asked him to hop up – which he did right away!
My housekeeper came – and brought her grandbaby. Finn was so excited to see her – and worried when she cried. Just like usual.
When he started doing the pacing, I gave him a single Benadryl (half a dose) and kenneled him so he could rest. He slept for an hour and change.
Later is when “it” happened. Well – several “its”.
It One – he shimmied under the foot rest of the recliner. That’s his favorite spot to sleep – and he hadn’t done that since he’d been home.
It Two – after we fed the horses and he had his dinner he…
Laid down to sleep in his “position” – behind the recliner and against the hearth.
Quietly. Without any more Benadryl.
Later on, I couldn’t find him. Until I looked…
Just like the Finn-of-pre-Monday, he put himself to bed.
These little “its” may seem like nothing. But…they’re HUGE!
Oh – and he herded both cats a bit and stole some of their treats. They weren’t nearly as pleased with this as I was! 😉
Finn’s in there, y’all!
How wonderful to hear. We all have ill effects from surgery and anesthesia, but he is young and will bounce back. I so look forward to Finn’s happenings, so keep them coming and we will keep him in our prayers for a full recovery and a return to being Finn’s Finn! Thanks so much for your lovely cards and letting us be part of Finn’s day to day activities. It is truly appreciated!
