Took Sydney to the vet today

The Good News First...

The good news is that the vet says that she thinks there's only a VERY small chance that Sydney's vertigo could be caused by a brain lesion or something more serious. She said if that was the case, Sydney wouldn't be as alert as she is and she wouldn't be playing with her toys or looking and acting SO upset about being at the vet. That was definitely a relief to me - because I'd been so worried that it was some sort of brain tumor or lesion...

The Bad News...

The bad news of course is that without doing an MRI (which is not available for pets in Hawaii) they really can't know the real cause of the vertigo. She looked in Sydney's ears and insists they look fine, but thinks that there's a slight possibility that she has inner ear infection. Of course, there's no way of knowing, but she gave me some antibiotics to give Sydney to see if it helps. If it doesn't we'll have to bring her in and try something else... :(

The vet visit did allow me to put some of my earlier fears somewhat to rest - so it was pretty positive all around. Sadly, the vet couldn't tell me if her condition was permanent or not, which is still quite a troubling thought...

On a good note, my Mom had some time to think about the whole watching-Sydney-while-we're-away thing and she seems to be okay with it. :) Hopefully the medication will work and Sydney will be much better by then...

On a completely separate, and MUCH less depressing note, there was a fabulous article/interview with Kristi and her Phantom co-star Tim on BWW.Com. :) I just couldn't be happier for her! :)

Hope you're all having a nice week - I'm off to catch up on all of your entries and comments. Big HUGS to everyone!
