The Brie Update

DH and I have been in contact with Jane, from the hospital, both yesterday and this morning and things have pretty much remained the same. We were secretly hoping for more improvement, even ever so slightly, but unfortunately that didn't happen :o( No improvement is definitely much better than having Brie's condition go backwards and we definitely don't want that!

Because there hasn't been any improvement with her motor function, the doctor felt that they would end up doing the MRI tomorrow afternoon. Since the appointment is late in the day and it takes a few hours, DH and I won't hear any results until tomorrow night. Today has been slow but luckily we have been able to keep busy but I know tomorrow will just drag on :o(

They are continuing to take Brie outside with her sling, about every four hours. Her spirits are still high and she's acquired a huge fan base at the hospital :o) They are amazed at her ability to wind herself up in her blanket and every morning they walk in there, they wonder if there's even a dog in that kennel. That's our little girl though ;o)

Not only has Brie made friends with everyone there but it seems she has many across the world as well! I love hearing stories from people who are asking about this little dog that they don't even know. Brie is an amazing little girl full of unconditional love and why this had to happen to her, I don't know. We're just blessed to have so much support from friends and family :o) It truly warms my heart and I thank you SO much!

Thanks for the update, hon.

Princess and I are both sending our hugs and love Brie's way. We're sneaking in some muzzle kisses too! Daisy is wagging her tail in support of her far away furry friend.

Sorry to hear there isn't improvement, but no improvement is better than a step backwards.

Truth be known, I'm not a dog lover but I can't help but feel your pain and wish her lots of love and luck!

Thanks for the update Cathey...

I am sorry to hear that she hasn't improved but at least she is saying the same and not going backward...

Please let us know how the mri goes- will be thinking of you all.

I'm so glad that you are getting not only technical reports on her, but character reports as well. That's really important for you. I love that you've passed them on to us.(hugs)

So glad that Brie is able to go outside, it must be wonderful for her to be able to do that, even with some help. {{{{HUGS}}}} for you and your DH, and sloppy doggy licks from Gemma and Mo.

It's so good to hear that Brie is no worse. It sounds like they're looking after her very well. Keeping everything crossed for you with the MRI results.

Sending hugs and healing thoughts for you and your little girl, and hoping the news tonight is good.

Barb said...

It's not the news you wanted to hear but like you said she's no worse. Hopefully it is something that will just take time and once she is fine she'll be okay.

I'm keeping her and you in my thoughts. I know that its hard for you, but I am glad she's doing better and getting a fanbase in the hospital. Little dogs are tough for being so dainty! Keep us updated and keep strong, hard as that sounds.

Hugs from Felix and I!
