I'm glad its over. I'm glad its bedtime and I can turn my brain off.
Monday night Enkidu got out of the yard. We couldn't find him all night. The next morning we got a call from an animal hospital saying that he was there. He had been hit by a car and a nice man found him at 7:30 in the morning trying to drag himself up onto a curb. He took him to the hospital and paid for some pain relief.
We went to see The Doon. It was bad. His lower half was paralyzed and he had broken teeth. And who knows what else. We gave him the rest of the day to respond to some meds but he didn't. He couldn't go to the bathroom and his bladder was swelling up. So we had to put him to sleep.
It was really hard after all this time. We got him in Chicago and took him all over the world with us. He was Randy's baby.
We all miss him already.
This afternoon we had an appointment with the neurologist about Wolfgang's MRI.
What the test discovered was that at some point before birth, Wolfgang had hemmhoraging in his brain. Where the blood clotted, it left a 1"x1.5" space on the cerebellum. This has affected several things, most importantly his sense of balance.
All we can do at this point is work with him to learn to walk and hope that his brain heals itself in some way . Poor little boy. The doctor said we will just have to wait and see how and if his body will compensate for the loss.
Its going to be a interesting year with 2 babies who can't walk. Thank the Lord for strollers. And thank the Lord for a boy with a good nature and a happy disposition.
This picture appeared on my camera. I'm sure it has something to do with Daddy.
I have been sewing headbands. I looked up from my work the other day to find all of my headbands around Wolfgang's neck.
