...apparently yesterday I had a little too much green tea with dinner and was freaking out a wee bit too much about the whole Sydney thing. I called the vet this morning and they did say that we should bring her in for re-evaluation. They're not sure what's causing all the dizziness and said it could be (we hope, anyway) a really bad ear infection. I'm hoping it's as simple as that and some antibiotics will clear it up in no time. On the bad side, it could be a brain lesion... :( We'll see - but I am a bit more optimistic about it in the light of day. Sorry to all for the freaky 2am posting last night! Reminder to self - no caffeine after 8pm! ;P

Worked at the 50th State Fair again for my class for the last time and had a blast!! Met so many new people who were SOOOO nice and patient with me and I felt like the interaction that I got with them was far more valuable than any class I've taken so far. I could actually hold conversations with them, joke and laugh with them - it was wonderful!! I'm always so apprehensive about going, but end up loving it so much when I'm there. Too bad this was the last day of the fair... I hope other opportunities to help out and work within the community pop up.

I'm really in HUGE need of a shower,... I smell like french fries (yuck!) and smoke... It was SOOO greasy in the wagon and I could honestly feel the grease forming on my face as I stood next to the deep fryers... :P

I do want to leave you all with some pictures of Sydney (it's so sad because she looks so different lately!) :( and some of the fair... :)

Here she is playing with her favorite squeaky toy. She loves it so much - you can tell by how dirty it is.

Her personality is in there somewhere, but she just doesn't look like herself in photos anymore... :(

As you can tell, she's not really too fond of taking photos lately... :(
Please excuse the HUGE-ness of my face in this photo! :P

Here's a shot of the onion rings and spicy fries... Because I had to smell it all day,
it doesn't look appetizing to me at all! :P

Here's a picture I took of the top of one of the roller coasters...

Here is the fun crew that I worked with today. They were all SO great!!

These are the other two girls I worked with. They're students at KCC taking the sign language classes for credit. :)
Notice my Thoroughly Modern Millie hat? I stole it from Mark! ;)

As I was leaving, I had to take a photo of the Zipper...

I'm off to get the fried food smell off me. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Big HUGS to everyone!!

Aah, the Zipper. That brings back memories. :) I haven't been on that thing in probably 10 years.

I hope Sydney's problem is as simple as an ear infection. It's so hard to see our doggies sick.

No 50th State Fair is complete without the Zipper! :)

We're hoping it's something that can be cured! She's been through so much lately - poor dog! :(

I had a lot fo fun working at the fair and I met some really great people! The interaction that I got at the fair helped me so much - I wouldn't have traded my experiences for anything! :)

Thanks for your comments on Sydney's photos... she does look tired and a little out of it. :( We're hoping she gets better soon - it's so hard to see her like this! :(

Give Sydney a huge hug for me.

I'm sending you a hug too Sheri.

I was never really a "ride" person - always too chicken, I guess... ;) And now, I get dizzy watching others others on them! ;)

Thanks for your comments for Sydney! We're having such a hard time seeing her this way. :( We just want her to get better. :(

Great festival pics.

I hope Sydney is okay.
Sheri: Sydney is...shutterbug93 on June 19th, 2007 03:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much!

And thanks for your good thoughts for Sydney - we're just hoping for the best.

Glad you had fun working the state fair again. :)

I really see a difference in Sydney's eyes... I hope it's just an easily fixed ear infection. :) *hugs to you and the fuzzy!*
Sheri: Sydney is...shutterbug93 on June 19th, 2007 03:48 pm (UTC)
Working at the fair was so much fun!! I almost wish it didn't end! I would go and work another 3 weekends - the experience there was just so valuable!

There's such a huge difference in her eyes, you're totally right! :( We're hoping that it's something relatively easy to fix like an infection of some sort - all other possibilities are too horrible to think about right now. :(

HUGS to you!
ajayne on June 19th, 2007 08:17 pm (UTC)
I hope tomorrow they can figure out what's going on with her. Maybe she'll be feeling better before you have to go to the wedding. I am hoping!! *hug*

Yes, I can see a difference in Sydney's eyes; she looks tired. I hope the vet finds out that an ear infection causes the problems! *Hugs* to all of you! I so wish I could do more.

I'm glad that you had a nice time at the fair and got to know such nice people. :) And thanks for sharing the pictures. Only looking at the last one makes me feel kind of sick. ;) But then, my stomach even notices the stop and when it goes on again when I use the elevator.

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri!

I really do think that the huge difference in her photos right now are her eyes too. :( We're hoping that an ear infection is the problem - all we really want is for her to get better! :(

I'm the same way as you when it comes to motion - I am SOOO not a roller coaster person! And the thing I like most about working at the fair is all the wonderful people that I was able to meet! :)

Big HUGS to you!!

Syd, hasn't lost her spark, I see it... she just looks a bit out of sorts..... let me know what the vet says.

Sheri: Sydney - couchshutterbug93 on June 19th, 2007 03:53 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your comment, Stacey! We are just so worried about her! We don't go to the vet until Wednesday, but I'll be sure to let you know what they say.

And when I first started working at the fair the fries looked so good! After about 4 hours of smelling them, I sort of lost my appetite for them. ;)

I'm glad you had such a good day!

Re. the dizziness, I'm not Sydney but when I had vertigo it was caused by a sinus infection. I had it for about six weeks before we figured out what the cause was. I hope Sydney can be cured as easily as I eventually was.
Sheri: Sydney - couchshutterbug93 on June 19th, 2007 03:57 pm (UTC)
It's a shame that the fair ended... It'll feel weird to have a weekend and NOT work there!

Sorry it took so long for them to find out what was causing your vertigo. :( But thanks so much for your comment, it gives me hope that maybe it's something that can be easily fixed. :)
