As much as I dislike moaning about MS today I have to! My symptoms have been getting worse for a little while now and I am almost as bad as I was 10 years ago. My recent MS clinic appointment confirmed that I now have secondary progressive MS which is normal after 20 years of relapsing remitting MS. I was told that I have started to cause damage to my hips and spine by only using one crutch and that I should now use two, after a few days of using two crutches it has become apparent that my left hand and arm are weaker than I realised and it has been a struggle getting around! I am also not sleeping well because of some spasms and nerve pain in my foot. DAMN, for someone who doesn’t like moaning I am doing a good job. 😀 My greatest fear is that the problems using crutches could mean I will have to use my wheelchair again which always drags me down, I wonder what Hamish and Jolie will make of me being on wheels? 🙂
On a brighter note, Hamish is still gorgeous.
As is Indy.
And Jolie is continuing to make progress. She is still wary of new people but not scatty, she prefers to sit a couple of feet away from the humans at the park if we stop but happily walks among them and prods their bottoms when we are walking? At home Jolie is just part of the family and every bit as cheeky as Hamish if not a little more. 🙂 Did I mention that she is a little flirt? Whichever of the boys is nearest is her boyfriend at that time.
Jolie loves Indy
or does she love Hamish?
Jolie did something yesterday that no dog has done since Luca, our late Golden Retriever 5 or 6 years ago, she got Indy to play mouth wrestling! 😮 She actually gets away with a lot of stuff with Indy that no other dog has ever done, she can walk right into his face when he is laying in his corner without him even smiling at her, in fact she has even walked on him with no consequences! He must really like her.
