Liem Update

Today Leim can hold his head up and stand, wobbly but he can stand.  Bless his heart when he does walk he walks sideways, but he tries so hard and then those old big brown eyes look at me and as if to say why am I walking this way?  I think also he lost his sight in his right eye. 
 
As i told you before Liem was the dominant dog of my two schnauzers.  My daughter came by today for a visit and when she came in the door he started barking, always the protector no matter how sick he is.  He was laying down but barking.
 
I also wanted to tell you that I quit my job with the Dr. today.  I felt I needed to be home With Liem and help his recovery. Also, my grand-daughter needs some one to watch Hayden because she needs to go back to work and of course you know I am the first to volunteer.  I can do this for her until the First of April, because then I have to go back to my bookkeeping job at the RV store full time.   That should give her plenty of time to find a reliable sitter.  If I had my way I would just leave the work force and keep him all the time.  He is growing and little cheeks filling out.
 
Also dear friends if you know of any way I can help Leim on his road to recovery from his stroke, any advice will be greatly appreciated. I looked and Looked on the internet and all it said to do was start slow and wait for the progress.  I was just wondering if there was a  excersie I could help with his legs?  Anything, I just want my Leim back to his studly manner.  He always walked so proud and to see him wobble and walk sideways just breaks my heart.
 
He is sleeping a lot, I guess his little body is healing from the stroke???  I don’t know how long I will have him but you can bet John & I will make it the best for him.

In this picture they are with my Mom in a motel room as one Christmas she and I went home for a Christmas visit. Liem is the one under my Mom’s arm.  He demands attention.  I think it is so cute Mom calls them her Grand Pups.

Until tomorrow friends

Pat

    Hi Pat…I\’ve never had any experience with a dog that has had a stroke so I\’m afraid I\’m not much help.  I am glad that you are able to stay home with him and help me along with his recovery.  They do so much for us and love us unconditionally.  I can feel the pain and anguish in your post and hope that he recovers to his full being.  Take care.

    Oh Pat.  This just absolutely breaks my heart for you.  I KNOW how much you love your babies.  Please know  I will say prayers for your precious Liem.  I wish I was there so I could give you a BIG BIG hug!  Doggone it.  I don\’t know what else to say except I hope that he will be okay.  Please keep us posted my friend.

    I love schnauzers.  They are adorable.  I\’m so sorry your Liem isn\’t doing well.  I hope he recovers soon.  I completely freak if my little guy acts even the littlest bit unlike himself. 
     
    Thanks you so much for continuing to drop by and leave encouraging comments even though I\’ve been terribly neglectful about stopping in.  I have no good excuse.
