Tomorrow and Sunday are the BC/Yukon Regional Agility Championships. Luckily they are being held here in Abbotsford, or else I probably wouldn't be going.
It's been a miserable week, what with my mum's stroke and all, and I haven't really given the Regionals much thought, and I'm not really 'into it' at the moment. I'm running both Jake and Luna tomorrow and Sunday, and who knows how it is going to go.
Yesterday was a very depressing visit with my Mum. She seemed worse to me. Her left eye was droopy, and she seemed more affected by the stroke that the two days previous. She had been dreaming/hallucinating the night before and must have tried to stand up and walk away from the bed, and of course crashed to the floor. Fortunately nothing was broken.
Today when I visited, she seemed better, not really physically, as she can't do much at all with the left arm yet, but she just seemed better somehow. The eye wasn't droopy though, and that made a big difference.
The nurse seemed quite pleased with how much she had eaten, how she had done with the therapy, and just how she seemed to be. I left the hospital today feeling much better.
When I talked to the doctor this morning, he said there a few days of swelling that happen from the stroke, which would account for the droopy eye yesterday. It will take about two weeks before they have a good idea of what her recovery will be, and she will probably be in the hospital for 3-4 weeks. She might be sent elsewhere for more therapy.
Anyway, I'll be entering the competition tomorrow feeling better about things, so let's hope that carries over to our performance. I'll let you know!
