Koda went to the vet today - apparently small dogs especially poms, have a tendency to have collapsing trachea's. So, that's why what I thought was a kennel cough wouldn't go away - he gets excited and his trachea collapses and he chokes and wheezes - kinda like we do. It's not as serious, but it is definitely something to keep an eye on as it can get serious. In the meantime, he can take robitussin and some pills. Most important, just calm him down by distracting him. This I can do.
Went to check out - Sean asked me to put his pills in my purse along with the note that had the robbitussin dosage down for me. And at the same time, he handed me the money, I took it and the receptionist told m how much the visit was. And I suddenly could not count 2 plus 2 if my life depended on it. So, his medicine and the note got left on the counter because I was holding Koda, money, trying to multi task with one hand and not burst into tears. Got home...Sean had to go back to the vet to get the medicine. Neither of us could remember having it or placing it anywhere.
I am an idiot. This isn't the first time I haven't been able to count and it won't be the last - I know it's stroke related, but darn - how long before my brain heals in that area and begins to relearn? How many more times will I be rendered speechless, fighting back tears 0I can't count.
It's been 2 1/2 months since the stroke - maybe not even that long (April 29th)- I can't count remember? I would have thought I'd heal quicker than this. There are areas in which I've rebounded really really fast, and then there are the idiot moments that render me speechless feeling like a deer in the headlights.
(Sean is my husband, btw)
