A Corbin Health Update!

A blog?  A Blog!  I think I see a blog!!!
I do! I do!

Totally sorry for the promise of a blog, then the absence of a Corbin, again.  But, here it is.  Here is a BLOG!  I have a few things to update you on in the coming days –hopefully! BOL!  But, today I’m going to update you on my health situation.
I tell the momma, see, I'm just fine.
As you all know, I’ve had the mystery back ouchies for a little over two years now.  For the most part, they’re under control, but recently we had to increase my prednisone from 5 mg once a day to 5 mg twice a day.  The momma says I’ve just slowed down a bit and she can tell that some movements make me uncomfortable.  So, twice a day has seemed to help. 
A not-so-recent picture of my missing toe.

My missing toe has healed up super nicely and it hasn’t had much effect on my daily livings.  I look a little bit like a pigeon foot, but oh, well.  Such is a Corbin I suppose.
Awkward feets.
My flat footed issue seems to depend on the day.  Some days I’m completely flat footed and the momma gets scared.  Other days, I’m not so bad.  She’s kind of figured out that the more tired I am, the more flat footed I am.  And, when my energy or adrenaline is up, my feet are better. 
My view on seizures.
Two weeks ago I had a bit of a seizure type episode.  Scary, I know.  It wasn’t one of those awful shaking ones, but more of a trance that I couldn’t get out of and my body was very ridged and my eyes were fixated straight ahead and my breathing was very rumbled and labored.  It happened just as we went to bed one night, the momma thought I was growling at something, but soon realized something wasn’t right.  She came and sat down in my dog bed with me and stroked my back until my breathing started to return to normal and I sort of snapped out of it.  And, once I snapped out of it, I was back to normal and my tail was wagging and I was excited that the momma was snuggling in my bed with me.  She talked to Dr. Mike about it and concluded it was most likely some sort of seizure.  So, we’re going to wait and see if anything else like that happens again.  Hopefully not.
See that nasty dot in the middle of my ghost patch?
Last week the momma was home sick for 3 whole days!  It was nice to have her home to snuggle with, but I think she started to forget that all the attentions in the house hold should be on me.  So, last Friday I made sure she noticed the big nasty red spots on my chest and legs.  Off to the vet we went!  Turns out, I had a skin infection!  Yep, so I’ve been on antibiotics, which have thankfully helped! 
Never a dull moment in the Corbin house!

The dog who cried blog.

I promised you blogs.  You will get blogs!  Although, today is just a picture of my angry face for lack of blogs with substance.  And a reminder that the blogs will come and I'm not just a dog who cried blog! 
Blogs. Will. Come.

A blog?

It has come to my attention that my last post involved snow and it's clearly Spring time! Finally!  So, I have a lot to update you all on, but the momma has been working lots of extra hours at the workplace, leaving little time for my blogging purposes (Sorry Babs!).  But, I have lots of stuff to update you on next week, including a Corbin medical update, former foster news and a big announcement.  Are you ready for it???
So, to hold you over, here is a picture of me and Amelia in our new Spring time Sirius Republic collars!  See you next week!
