Surgery for Gracie and Vertigo for Me

Gracie will have her surgery this afternoon.  She shook all the way down there this morning...  Like..  she knows what is coming down.  

As for me...  

Vertigo...  

It started at the vets office and now I am just trying to hang on (literally).

I always try to stay away from medication.  But the doc prescribed Meclizine.  I took 1/2 of one.  Hope it helps.  

Please say a prayer for Gracie today...    


"For the love of Dogs woman...  I'm just minutes away from being called back to prep for my surgery today and you are taking PICTURES?"  


UPDATE:

GRACIE IS OUT OF SURGERY.  SHE IS DOING FINE.  HOPE TO GET HER HOME TOMORROW.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND GOOD THOUGHTS.

  1. Do be careful with that vertigo. A lady I know had it and fell and broke the toilet bowl in the bathroom she hit it so hard and was in the hospital a week and the nursing home for a month. Glad your little Gracie is doing good. Will pray for you both.

  11. Glad Gracie is recovering well. Hope they got ALL the stones this time. Those are so painful, we don't blame Gracie for being a little snappish.

    Mama has had vertigo issues for years; runs in her family. Don't brush off taking any RX that works; beats a bad fall and breaking something important.

    Get better soon, Gracie!

  12. So glad to hear about Gracie. As for you, I have had BPV for over 40 years. When I was young, I literally had to crawl to get anywhere during attacks. Things would even spin with my eyes closed. There are movements you can do that will help, there is a big article in the paper today that says you can finally learn them yourself on YouTube, and I have kept the link.

  17. YEAH for Gracie!
    Boo for Bobbi!!

    Bobbi...I have had vertigo a few times in the passed few years. My Doctor suggested I go on YouTube and look up Epley Maneuver which I did and had great success with. It is a body movement adjustment process which helps to move the crystals dislodged in your canal. If you need and other suggestions, don't hesitate in asking!

  18. I haven't had vertigo and don't want it. I have heard too many horror tales about it. Praying you and Gracie are both doing better today.

  19. Glad Gracie is doing better. My shih tzu had bladder stones and after surgery they put him on ud dog food. He did not like it so I add chicken and a little rice to it every day in the morning to the wet food and he gets a little dry at nite. He has never had them since and that was 5 years ago. He also gets dog cookies with apple or cranberries in them that he likes very much. I had vertigo once and fell and could not walk with it. I pray I never get it again. Mine was caused by a middle ear infection and once the antibiotic kicked in I was fine. I will say prayers for you guys still as you can get get set backs but God will take care of you.
