Fairway Update

When Jeremy came home last night Fairway was with him.  He really couldn't tell me much and even if he could have, I don't think I would have heard him.  My head was in a fog and all I could think about was how I could barely even recognize Fairway.  I made him a bed on the floor next to my bed.  I was going to let him sleep with me, but I thought that us moving around in the night might cause him pain.  He just lay there, in a coma like state.  Jeremy said that the vet had given him morphine for his pain.

Basically, this is what he told me.  He has a detached retina from what they could tell, and it could be worse.  They were very concerned because of the bleeding inside his eye.  They are afraid he will lose his eye and if that happens, he will have to have surgery to remove it.  They also don't know whether or not any bones are broken in his head.  They told Jeremy that even if they were, there's really not a lot they could do about that.  We have to take him to our vet this afternoon to have him looked at because they thought that maybe the swelling would be down some.

He looks bad.  It looks like his eye is popping out of his head, and the whole left side of his face is huge and misshapen.  I don't think he can see out of that eye.  He really hasn't moved much since he came home.  I don't know what else to say.  I wish I could make him feel better, but all I can do is sit beside him and pet him.

When we went to bed last night, Jeremy tried to reassure me by telling me that of course he would get better, he is part of Chuck Norris isn't he?  And then, there in the darkness of our room at night, my Husband reminded me once again of just one of the reasons why I love him.
He said: Jesus may be the son of God, but Chuck Norris is his round house kick.

I think that I may have simultaneously choked and shot snot from my nose when he said that.  As soon as I stopped laughing and it was quiet again he said:

Armageddon is just another word for Chuck Norris.

We were laughing so hard that we  were silent.  All I could feel was the bed shaking from our laughter.

That was followed up with: Chuck Norris can get a mule pregnant.

And then just because he is so smart, he went into some kind of explanation of quantum physics that ended with: and that's why if Chuck Norris fell into a black hole, it would reflect Chuck Norris.  And then in a robot voice he said: HA HA HA, THAT WAS VERY FUNNY. I AM STEPHEN HAWKING.

This went on for several more minutes and I fell asleep with a smile on my face.
