First, Baron bit me. Yes, my dog bit me in my face. It's partially my fault, the dog is not blameless but I put him in that position. He was sleeping on the bed with me and three of the other dogs and I started messing with his back legs. I believe that I caused him pain and it startled him out of his sleep and so he went after whatever was closest to his legs - my face. I didn't have any stitches and it didn't even really bleed, but it was scary and not something to be taken lightly. Plus this is actually his second bite, his first was to Nicholas's thigh in a very clear pain response late last year.

Unfortunately, we will still have to have that horrible, never want to have again, decision to think about. How long can we maintain a quality of life with him and keep everyone safe? Especially with the steep stairs in our house that he won't be able to safely traverse (he's already having minor problems with them). Almost a year ago, we took him to ISU because of acute shoulder/neck pain and at that time ISU had thought wobblers. At that point I thought no way because he didn't show any symptoms and his pain was very acute, but now ... now he's showing several early warnings and seems to have chronic pain. Anyone's guess is as good as ours.
Second, Vito got into the bathroom trash again and had to go to the ISU ER very, very early this morning to induce vomiting. This is a human management error on my part, obviously I didn't thoroughly check to make sure the door was shut. Very Bad Erin! Luckily, Vito upchucked the used tampons and we went on our merry way. Let's hope the rest of the week slows down a bit, I can only handle so much excitement!
