Morning Update on Willy D

Good morning friends, it's Wil's mom again. I wanted to get up and help Wilma post a snarky retort to yesterday's report, but she is still not quite herself. I don't want to get all cocky just yet, but I do want to give you all an update.

Wilma had a quiet night. She snuggled up in her favorite velour blanket for a long nights rest. This morning she has eaten her breakfast and is still moving about a little gingerly. No screaming, and less restlessness. I say screaming because that is the only way I can describe these noises that came out of her yesterday morning and evening. We have never heard anything like it from her, and trust me she has a wide variety of vocalizations in her repertoire.

As it stands, I am hoping she over did it with me on Friday and is still feeling sore. I am still waiting to let her tell you all about her me time with Mom, but we did go to White Memorial for a hike. We really just walked around the grounds and took it slow and had frequent breaks and snacks. While she seemed to be tolerating it well, it was more walking than she has done in a while.

I will gladly take the blame for giving the old dame more than she could handle(please don't tell her I said that), as long as she bounces back soon. Everybody misses her bossing them around, and giving them the business.

We are having a chill day at home, and the vet is there if we need her. I will also take Wilma into work with me tomorrow to keep an eye on her. Hopefully we won't have any worries by tomorrow morning, but we are keeping it as an option.

Thanks to everybody for your well wishes. I am giving Wilma all your messages and she really appreciates them. She did tell me there was nothing to worry about, and I had better not be saying anything to embarrass her on the blog. Wil's dad and myself also really appreciate the support. We can really feel the love, and we know you all care very much about Wilma and her well being. It means the world to us.

Wilma has adjusted her position during the writing of this post over to a nice puddle of sunny sun.

  1. Did Wilma get an x-ray of her spine? Tallulah screamed like a horror movie when she compressed a disk in her neck. Her pain didn't go away without meds though. Maybe a pinched nerve?
    Whatever it was, so glad she's feeling better.

  2. I agree with S.F.P's, that was the first thing that came to mind. Spine or neck injury.

    Glad you are on the mend.


  3. Looks like Wilma has picked the best sun spot! When Payton had a bulging disk, she just shook/shivered in pain and only cried when her back was touched. When Payton got really restless and couldn't get comfortable (then started vomiting), it was her gall bladder. These dogs are a mystery to figure out! Please tell Wilma that we love her and that she and the entire family are still in our prayers. Hope she continues to get better!

  4. So glad you are feeling better today. We hope it continues and it was just a case of over doing it!

    Please keep us posted.

  8. I hope Wilma continues to improve. I do wonder about the screaming. See Tuni wakes up in the middle of the night occasionally and screams her head off a few times and then by the time I am holding her she stops. Acts like its all normal and goes back to sleep. infact she did it last night. She literally screams. I just wonder if the vet said why she may scream. Its just been going on for the past couple of years. Its random and I wonder if she has muscle cramps, gas or seizures. Hope Wilma is better many hugs to her!


  9. And a whole heap of magic healing vibes and prayers for Wil's complete recovery..though it sounds like she's getting back to normal now. Gram and Grampy want to hear some good news from her real soon.


  10. all our feets are crossed Wilma
