Bluey still isn’t doing well. She passed out again tonight when I took her downstairs for a potty break only this time…she lost control of her bladder while I held her. That’s never, ever happened before. She was unconscious for nearly a minute this time and as she lay limp in my arms, I wondered if she would die on this cool, drizzly night in San Francisco.

I’ve decided not to bring Bluey to the SXSW conference next week due to her recent illness of congestive heart failure.
Yes she’s been to BlogHer in New York, Gnomedex in Seattle, Blogword in Las Vegas and Blogalicious in Miami but I’m concerned if she were to have another episode in Austin, TX, I could lose her. I’d have to figure out how to store her body (in a hotel fridge?) and get her back to San Francisco (I’m sure TSA would just love me for trying to board with the dead body of a 4lb Chihuahua). So, I will be leaving Bluey here in San Francisco as I depart out next week for SXSW.
Bluey is doing much better today (Wednesday), I thank people who have donated to Bluey’s vet fund, share my struggles with T-mobile’s data bait and switch with my Nexus S and show you some Bluey’s supplies.
NOTE: I’m a bit delirious in this video because I’m so tired so you will see me doing voices, swearing and use the word “thing” to describe stuff *smile*
Bluey is doing much better than she was on Friday. She still has congestive heart failure so that can’t be fixed but she can live a reasonably good life, the vet said and now I’m starting to believe it!
Today I picked up items to make Bluey and those around her more comfortable. She’s been sleeping a lot and her breathing isn’t labored. I’m still carrying her up and down the stairs.
Sometime after the 1st of January, she passed out going up the stairs. She fell over and her feet sort of pawed the air. I rushed to her side to comfort her. She came to but I could tell she was dazed like, “What happened?”. I started carrying her up and down the steps, thinking about why she passed out. It happened again last weekend and I could see her tongue turned blue so I made a vet appointment. This just isn’t normal.
This is Bluey Friday night, January 7th, 2011, around midnight. Her breathing is very labored:
I landed a sweet sublet/share in SOMA
Turtle the cat and Bluey the dog will stay here for a month until I find permanent housing
I’m donating a bunch of tech stuff to Free Geek Twin Cities
I am looking at SOMA, Hayes Valley, Lower Haight, Portrero
My party is next Friday at Azia Restaurant
