but we wont lose the war. Great way to start off a blog post right? I figured I could do this as a status update but I felt that wasn’t fair because its quite a long story and since the kids have so many people who are following them I know y’all will want the whole thing.
We’ve had some crazy weather lately, between that and me not feeling my best the kids have been a little cooped up, so we’ve had more behavioral issues than normal. And today took the cake.
We had everyone outside watching them potty and whatnot when Kaiser rushed up to Beka, as best we can figure Beka didnt notice him coming and when she saw me going towards her she grabbed Kaiser and held him down…. Dad and I had to pull them apart and we realized Kaiser needed to see a vet ASAP
If you’ve been following along at home you’ll remember that we’ve been to the vet 7 times so far since the 2nd and the last two times (today and yesterday) we went to a new vet. I’m very grateful that he was able to see us on such short notice.
Kaiser ended up needing 3 staples and some wound cleaning, he’s a bit of a mess right now emotionally. (Beka’s totally fine) Why am I telling you all this instead of pretending it never happened? Thats a good question, I did think about just not mentioning and trying to avoid getting any pictures of it… But our policy with the kids pages has always been honesty, y’all are involved in their lives on a daily basis, in the past 48 hours Ive come to realize just how much my kids mean to their friends, people we’ve never even met who love them so much… Its really touching and heart warming.
So what does this mean now?
Well today we talked to our new vet about putting Kai on some anti-anxiety medicine, to help him calm down so he can learn and trust again… We will also be more strict in our crate and rotate schedule paying close attention to the weather, Kai’s moods, Beka’s moods and how we feel…
Its going to be a lot more work but they are both worth it, medicine isn’t a ‘fix’ its not going to cure Kaiser, but it will help calm him down so that we can work on helping him navigate and understand the world around him…
We are going to look into some calming collars for everyone (again), and some pheromone sprays and such…. And as soon as we can we are seeing a behavioral trainer
I just want to take a moment and thank everyone whose followed the kids, all the friends they have, y’all mean a lot to us and aren’t just ‘numbers’
Thank you so much… Please as always feel free to ask any questions
